    We have two of these, bought in March 2005. After 3.5 years now, one will not light up (one was also serviced a year ago). But now no longer under warranty. The green light comes on; I see a flicker or attempt to light up then the green light goes out. This repeats indefinitely.

I have had a lot of these in over the years. The fault in almost all of them was bad capacitors.
This is an easy thing to repair if you know how. If not I would advise handing it to your local TV tech. It should not cost alot to have repaired.

Acer AL1715 Monitor - screen distortion, discoloration, several times each day


Certain versions of the Acer AL1715 monitor had a problem with the VGA socket. Specifically, the plastic case around the socket was not wide enough. The plastic lip interfered with the plug and so the plug does not seat properly. This causes all sorts of intermittent problems. The version of the AL1715 with the problem with had the UPC code of 0 99802 19889 3. I fixed several of these monitors by shaving off the excess plastic with a Dremel Mototool. A hand file would probably work as well. You have to remove the plastic back to get the clearance to do the job.

Acer al1711


Hi.  I have no experience with an AL1711 but this sounds very much like the power supply problem that affects the AL1715.

If you understand electronics then you need to check the power supply for faulty components (there were two faulty capacitors in my AL1715).  Replacements should cost about 10p each and however much time it takes.

Unfortunately if you're not into electronics then there's really not much you can do.

If you do take the back off then please post whether you can see any faulty components.

Zeb.

Blinking lights when PC is s.down


Not sure what happened as I had a whole message typed and lost it. Here I go again. I hope it doesn't post twice.

We have an Acer AL1715 monitor which started having this problem after a power surge. It was the only piece of equipment affected by the surge. I searched for an answer when it happened but got nowhere. I contacted Acer about this and they told me I would have to bring it to a tech to be looked at. Decided on a whim today to try Googling again and found this website and Q&As.

Though we didn't know what "Brunin" was nor saw an "F" change color, we did get into the Menu on the monitor and used the right and left arrows to see what was there. We decided to use "Reset" by highlighting it and pressing the "Menu" button for "Enter".

This appears to have solved the problem for us. The monitor is no longer toggling colored screens when idle nor when the computer is off.

Thank you for solving our problem. It has been very annoying for the user and anyone sitting across from her monitor during a meeting.

OSD problem on my Acer AL1715 17 in.


I had a simalar problem with my Dell 2001FP. The issue is that there is false triggering of the switch; you need to open the front panel, and remove the swictch from the circuit by: 1) analyze the circuitl; its usally pretty simple - a voltage drop circuit. 2) disable the switch by either removing it with a solder gun or, simply by using a sharp blade and cutting the PCB track leading it to it, as I did.(much easier - and reversible!) Fixed my problem.
