Question about Acer AL1715 (Black, Silver) 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Wavy screen Everything works great until I leave my station for (I think) an hour or more and when I return and "awaken" my screen, the whole screen is wavy. This first began when I left applications open but it has also occured when I didn't. This problem is corrected by turning off, then turning my screen back on, but I'd like to find a way to prevent it from happening.

Re: Wavy screen

Try using a different refresh rate. I've found that when you change it down to 60 hertz that the issue usually goes away.

Syncmaster 920N 5 Minutes of dark Screen It takes 5 minutes for screen to light after computer has been awaken from "sleep" mode or if monitor has turned off while listening to music online.

Hello Dfrank,

The 920N units use the same power supply board that the 710T uses and it was a known issue with bad capacitors that fail. When they fail it can cause the issues that you are having - Either slow to show a picture, wavy display or no power and flashing power light. The boards can be repaired if you can do a little soldering, the parts are cheap. We have a step by step repair guide posted on our tech support web site at: This is an easy repair for a very nice monitor, well worth repairing it.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Connect the monitor to a different computer (laptop or desktop), to see if the problem "follows" the monitor.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if the video-card in your computer is generating the "wavy" display.

Move any "power-bars" and PC Speakers *FAR* away from the monitor, to eliminate electrical interference.

OK you need to change your power settings. This decides what your computer will do when left for a period of time, it may be best to change everything to always on if you cant wake it up from hybernation, check here Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options

Mag Innovision 765S Screen Flashes on and off.

It sounds like it is trying to re-synchronize it self and not going back the the default setting. Compare the resolution of the game to your monitor capabilities.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.

I start my computer and turn it on, and everything looks fine for about 1/4 of a second and then it goes black while leaving the power light green. I can only see the screen again after turning it off and on, but that's only for another 1/4 second. What's up?
I got my rosewill flatscreen as a hand me down from my father. I've had it for several years now. Was working fine until a month ago. When I turn the computer on the screen goes black after 1/4 of a saecond. I have to turn it off and on anywhere from 10 to 20 times before it stays on. I have checked all plugs to the computer and outlets. I have absolutely no idea whats causing this.
