ACER LCD monitor no image, appears white color only

Hi! I bought ACER desktop PC but the monitor MODEL: AL1916W turns white color all the time ( no image seen). I connect the CPU to my samsung 37" LCD TV just to check if cpu video card working and found its working (image clearly seen). I just plugged it and no adjusment made. Actually this monitor and pc just bought 8months ago and I think still have warranty but and have no time to send to ACER shop, now can help me diagnose my PC monitor problem or advise some troubleshooting guide.

Re: ACER LCD monitor no image, appears white color only

Quickly go to the Acer website and check FAQ's and while there also find out how to get an RMA to return it. My guess is you have a bad monitor. At $200 roughly for a replacement I would hustle. I am assuming you got nothing but a white screen but did get video on your TV.

christidis d, If AL1916W has white screen when connected to a "known-good" pc, then the units "switch-mode-power-supply" has gone bad. Most monitors have +5 volts and +12volts dc to power up the electronics. +12v for the inverter circuit which lights-up the 2 cold cathode fluorescent lamps, and +5v for the vga to lcd panel digital signal processing board. One or both of dc rails may be out of regulation and or a bit "noisey" due to failed "electrolytic filter capacitors" on the SMPS board. Let me know the brand name of the capacitors you find on the SMPS board. What is the "date of manufacture" on rear of monitor?

This is Acer AL1916W is 2008 model year, you just bought it brand new? it should come with the CD for edisplay management software that you need to install in your PC to enable/disable the anti-theft. I would take it back to where you bought it from and have them remove the anti-theft since the seller has activated it.
Please read the user manual that come with this monitor for details.

Monitor colors are not displaying correctly

Hi, At the worst it is a blown monitor, but have hope. 1st try a new or known good lead, between monitor and PC. 2nd put monitor with own lead on good PC. if 1st works = result. if 2nd and monitor is same, suspect monitor, however, if 2nd works ok on other PC, then look at ur vid card. Either way, this test sequence should save you some $. Be lucky.
