Acer al1716 colour problems

As of the 13/2/08 my monitor now only displays in hues of purple/lylic and shades of green .
i have tried to change the colour settings within the monitor menu but to no effect ,have also tried to change colour settings through vista to no effect , also tried to change settings through ATI catalyse controle center ,again to no change.

I have an Acer AL1916 which I bought new in March 06. It became faulty when the colours changed. In addition the whole image shifted to the left a few inches (now and again). Like yourselves I thought it was the cable / PC but it was the same on a seperate unit. Concluded faulty - so back to Acer it went. They repaired it and it came back with the colours back as they should.

However, 10 months on, it's done it again. I turned it on Monday and the screens gone back to a horrible purple hue.

So back to Acer it goes again. I'm not impressed at all. Temped to fight and try and get my money back. Clearly these screens have a reoccuring fault and it sounds like you guys have the same fault.

Yes, I'd say your cable is faulty. If it is the type you can disconnect, then change it. If it is moulded to the monitor then you might have a problem. check all of the pins on the connector to make sure they are in tact and not bent.

Please check the connector at the end of the cable connecting your monitor to your VGA port in your computer. Check if there are any bent or broken pins, or if the cable is damaged near that connector. If this is the case, you will need to get this connector replaced to fix the problem.

Acer al1716 dont work

When the LCD monitor display flickers and or has a black screen then the fault is usually a faulty inverter or the CCFL lamp. When you look at the screen at a sharp angle and you see a dim image then it is a backlight problem and it is caused by a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp.

My monitor has a green hue that will not go away when I adjust the colors in the screen. The blue adjuster doesn't seem to do anything. When I use auto adjust, It looks amazing for about 5 seconds then...

If you have another PC try it on the monitor, see if the problem persist. I f it doesn't check your video card's control panel. Some configuration there, may be overriding your monitor's. If you have an nvidia based card run the "optimize my display wizard"

Screen ajustment

Hi stefan,

You can adjust manually using the OSD (on-screen display) menu of you monitor by pressing menu button. Other monitor OSDs cannot be accessed on single button but some combination of buttons but considering it can be accessed, please look for it. Try also changing the properties at Operating System GUID (graphics user interface display) Control Panel Display or your monitors display monitor application software. Try changing the frequencies and other special features like single screen or wide screen, etc..

Best regards,
