Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen turns off seconds after image is displayed

My Acer AL1916W LCD monitor turns off just seconds after an image is displayed. This can be repeated by touching the power switch off then on. The picture shows for a few seconds and then goes dark. I opened it up to look for some pots that someone said to try adjust. I looked real hard but there just aren't any.

    I am using VGA. The PC does not have DVI out. Yes, the PC works fine on another screen.

  • tech133 Feb 05, 2008

    I tried 800x600 and 1024x768 (60Hz) but the screen always says 'No Signal' via DVI. Only VGA input gives a (temporary) picture.

    I tried 3 PCs already - same symptoms - it's the Monitor that has the problem...

Sounds like your video card. Check to make sure it's connected properly. If so, check to make sure it's properly seated to *********** board. The possible issue could be the card is connected enough to display the picture, but not enough to communicate with the monitor to stay on because it has an active feed. Best of luck fixing it

Hello,

Yes, The inverter is the problem on your monitor. We have a step by step guide to dis-assemble and repair your monitor posted on our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com/monitor_repair.htm Your model is the same as the westinghouse L1875NW. We have a parts kit for $12.00 if you need it, it can be purchased on the guide page. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we can do it for $35 + shipping. This is a common problem with that series of monitors but the repair will get you back going.

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

Power supply on 17" acer monitor


franh, Typical of a lcd/fpd monitor! There is nothing you or hundreds of others can do to repair it all by yourself. I have repaired 3 monitors and helped tutor 2 others on fixya with their monitors. All had same exact symptom as your monitor. I need you to do a simple test for me. With failed Acer monitor near to your Fully Booted PC with a known good desktop being displayed on back-up monitor, quickly swap out the monitor cables from the back of the PC. Keep touching the CTRL key on you keyboarb every 30-50 seconds to keep the PC from sending out sleep mode command to monitor while doing the reconnect of acer to your PC monitor output port. Make sure the Acer also is connected to a live wall outlet/power strip. Turn on the Acer and note what happens. If screen shows a sharp clear image for a second, then goes black, do the following. Get a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen from a distance of 1 or 2 inches and tell me if you can see the desktop display. get back to me with your observations. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com.

Have you used the Fn button on your laptop and changed the video display Icon on the Blue Function keys. You need to change the display wait a few seconds for it to take affect. There are several modes try them all so you know how to use them.

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.

Your backlight is starting to go bad! These backlights are little tiny florecent bulbs, these can be replaced and they do burn out. Sounds like your back light is bad! Could be costly to replace as there are not too many places out there that will replace the bulbs.
