Question about Acer AL1717 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Acer Monitor My acer is not a 17" but a 20" acer. I have Microsoft Media. When I play the TV it will play for about 2 minutes and then start stopping and starting. If you change channels it will play about 2 minutes and then start the same thing. Any ideas what the problem is. I have a Gateway GM5088 Athlon 64 X2 4600+, Avidia GeForce 6100, 2048DDR, Duel Channel, 400gb. Thank you for any help. Bro. Reginald Gabel

Lcd acer al1917w dispay problem

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.

I have taken acer lcd monitor on march 16 2008, the power to monittor is goning to on and off frequently while running..? and monitor is on and off itself, when it is start acer symbol is coming...

2 years old may be due for bad DC filter caps inspection which is very common failure on LCD TV's and monitors.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

Learn about bad caps:

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

I fixed my AL2021 by replacing the output caps on the power board. $4 repair. Pull the thing apart and replace the 1000uF, 680uF and 470uF caps on the end of the power board.
