Question about Acer AL1912B 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I have an Acer AL1912 that when you plug in the ac, the green power light will blink for about a minute and a half then go solid. The backlight will come on and you can see a faint ghost of vertical lines for about 10 seconds. The backlight then goes off and the power light turns amber. You can unplug the video cable and plug it back in and you get the 10 second ghost and it goes amber again. Any ideas?

If it is still in warranty call the manufacturer.

shutdown computer unplug then disconnect the video cable on the computer from the monitor, plug monitor back in and turn it on, there should be a display that says no video source within a few seconds, if unit is working properly. shutdown and connect video again and then reboot computer. sometimes it just takes a compleat power disconect to reset things,

I use Acer AL1912 19inch (black) monitor. It is working properly for weeks. but sometime it suddenly go dark during work, although its light remains green. Now the only solution is to unplug its power...


Sounds like the monitor is dying, if it starts to die more and more often you will likely have to replace your monitor before it goes completely out. There are not many ways for a user to repair a monitor, unless the problem is with the computer, which you could test by connecting a different monitor to the computer for a while (if available). Hope this helps!

I have a AL1912 B monitor that won't turn on. The green light in front just keeps blinking.


Power board problem, in all probability capacitor failure. Needs the capacitors checking and replacing, but will probably be cheaper to get another monitor

Power supply or motherboard problem?


Hi talissap,

The blinking light is telling you something about the PSU. First check any AC mains voltage select switches for proper setting. US should be 115. Second if you have a multimeter, you could test the PSU for voltage. Disconnect all power to all components. remove all components from the board including cpu, memory . Leave the PSU only plugged into the board. Press power. If the fan turns on then it's not the power supply. The brand power supply isn't the best, I've seen where you need to wait for 5-20 minutes for the blinking to stop, at which time it will fire up. Now, if it doesn't power up, then it's most likely the PSU.

Good Luck,

Mark

The power button may not work, that is most common in laptops, or you have a short.

Acer AL1912 19" LCD Monitor goes black after power up


With the screen connected to the pc (which is running and putting out a signal) hold a bright light to the front of the lcd - a led flashlight works well. Do you see an image? If so then circuitry driving the inverter backlights may be at fault. I had this happen with a Dell Flat Screen, and found one of a pair of transistors which drives the backlight had developed a short.

Blank screeen


Been there, done that. The power LED cycling indicates that the switchmode PSU is shutting down and trying to restart over. Standard symptom, let me guess the bulging cap is on the top row. Replace it with a same value/voltage (1000uF/10V from memory) low ESR 105C type and you'll be back in business.

Your minitors power supply is now damaged, probably from the power outage. I t will need to be repaired or replaced. Check the cost and benifits of both options and make a discision.
