Just bought my Acer AL2016WBbd and only when i have it hooked up with
the DVI cable the screen will at random go to black for half a second
then back to what I had up. It is not very often but still sucks. The
VGA works fine no problems, even if I use my DVI to VGA adapter. Any
It appears this may be a bug with the ATI Radeon using the DVI cable. Worse is that the bug is old (2007) with no apparent fix that I've found... http://tinyurl.com/5888n8 http://preview.tinyurl.com/5888n8

<P>If you try new cable, try with another PC and still have the same problem, then you need to inspect the inside for bad caps first just like all the SAMSUNG as shown.</P><P style="tab-stops: center 3.25in left 255.75pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'"><A href="http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums"><FONT color=#800080>http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums</FONT></A><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'"><A href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague</A><o:p></o:p></SPAN></P><P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'">Capacitors kit: <A href="http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/Viewsonic-C196320.aspx"><SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </SPAN>http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/</A><SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </SPAN>he can make you a set of caps for you.<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P><P> </P>
are the black lines random on the screen on just one the sides. If it is only on the sides those can be adjusted by using the adjustment buttons on the side of the monitor. If it is in random parts of the screen this means your pixels are dead. You can get this fixed at a computer store. They will install a new filament which should fix the problem, it might cost a lot though. I would probably just buy a new one. Sorry.
I have 2 Acer AL2416W monitors that i have been using for 2 years. There has been a handful of times i would turn my computer on in the morning and the screen would be black and Acer would lightly flash on the monitor 1 time. Typically a restart would take care of the problem. Last week the monitor blacked out and i can't get it to work. Any suggestions?? I switched ports on the computer to verify it wasn't the video card and tried new DVI cables to verify it wasn't those? Is this fixable??
I've read that aftermarket DVI cable adapters don't work well with this set-up. You might try the Apple DVI to ADC adapter. It's expensive but I see them on eBay or craigslist from time to time at less than half the normal $99 cost.
check the warranty online for your screen.. go the the acer support website and look up warranties, and it will ask for a really long number on the back of your screen, and it will tell how long the warranty is good for and what to do with it.
Mine is doing the same thing. flashes white then black and that is all
