Question about Acer AL1916B 19" LCD Monitor

5 Answers

Pink screen I've got my screen for about two years and I've never really had a lot of problems up until now. One day, i turn on my screen, and it is bright pink. First i thought it was a driver problem, but i tried my screen on an other pc and i have the exact same problem. I tried adjusting my colors, but nothing seems to fit. The strange thing is, when i press the auto button, or when i reset my monitor, for a moment, i get the right colors, but then it switches back to pink. Can anybody help me? Thanks

    thanks for the solution 1443, i'll keep that in mind the next time something like that would happen. I do use my screen an awful lot, and it's in a sunny place, so it wouldn't surprise me if it did overheat.
    unfortunately, i already brought my screen to the story i bought it (maybe i would've been able to solve it myself). it got shipped to acer support and there they installed new software on my screen.
    i did have to miss my screen for two weeks, but it didn't cost me anything. apparently there was something wrong with my software.
    the good thing is that not only my screen has its regular colors again, the blur my screen used to have sometimes is gone too (sometimes, it looked like my text was displayed double)

    We have the same problem with our vista computer too. Some times the the screen stays the right color for ten minutes after start up and some times it turns pink as soon as the computer is starterd up. Is this common with vista computers? I heard ads on tv how vista is having problems and complaints about their computers.

    Exactly the same problem but not handy with a soldering iron. Any other fixes?

A pink screen means you need to replace your backlight folks!

If you're comfortable tearing your case apart:

A backlight is a CCFL tube, it looks like a skinny flourescent tube. It will be right beside the LCD, just buy one the same length and viola! It will look brand new.

If you are NOT comfortable tearing into your monitor DO NOT TRY! A reputable repair person should only charge about $50-$80 tops to do this easy fix.

Open your moniter there is a chip at the end of ur picture-tube. (Be sure that ur moniter power cable is not connected) Resold the chip with tool(If u don't know the tool then don't open it) and it will not turn pink for a week or may be for ever. This problem occours when moniter overheated. Try to keep this cool. Maybe its funny if u use any cooling solution? But u should use. I have done this many times. And this works. First time machanic did it infront of me. And then I did it later when problem occurs again. :D.

Pictures are pink

Did you really drop the camera? because the pink could be caused by a misplaced lens. But you also should check if you did not change the strings to manual. Like manual White balance or scene. Try the camera in the automatic setting. Please check the type number you gave, because Nikon did not make a Coolpix 3200. And I think the S3200 is to new.

You might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below...

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

Onn Wireless Mouse has stopped working. What do I do?

Mine would work fine until I turned on my wireless headphones...then the mouse would move a little stop.....move a little....then stop.

I made sure my headphones were on.

I turned off the mouse, moved the mouse reciver to a USB port on the front of my computer (the mouse reciver and the headphone receivers were next to each other on the back of the computer). I turned the mouse back on.

The computer imediately gave me the "installing USB driver" notification.

When it was complete....both played nicely more problems.
