Acer LCD Monitor AL2671W - screen too bright!

My Acer AL2671W LCD TV video is terrible. Too bright a screen. I have the DVI (for VGA only) and VGA ports working but the picture is still bright. I have sound on all input connections but I'm missing TV on the TV Tuner input. Just the sound is working there. I have to hard boot the TV/Monitor to get it going as well. With all of the video adjustment turned to the lowest level, I can use it as a PC monitor. I have never used the TV Tuner until now preferring to use a SAT Capture Card for my Video. What part could I replace to get the screen toned down so it doesn't look like the sun on the default setting!

I also have never been able to get the DVI-D input to work using two vid cards, currently using the Geforce 7300. Thanks.

    I have also never been able to connect a video card to the TV. The video card output is DVI-D. The TV input is just DVI. I tried an adapter between the 2, and no success.



    Does anyone else have this problem?

I had the same problem with my TV when I purchased it used. Select the input you are having troubles with and enter "Service Mode" by pressing and holding the "VOL - " button and "CHAN + " buttons on the TV, simultaneously until the screen flashes red one time.

At this point you will be in service mode. Pressing the "MENU" button will open a service menu, which is different from the typical user menu. From the service menu you can further adjust your image settings until you have a decent picture.

Initially my VGA input looked terribly bright and washed out. Now it looks incredible!

My monitor is blank, the Acer logo will flash on when I start it but cannot get a signal, have tried it on another machine same response.


Hi,

I am not too sure if you have tried this but this might help, for what i know your monitor have 2 ports for video (DVI and VGA). VGA is the one with color blue adapter, while the DVI is white. If your using VGA for both computer might be you can try DVI or from DVI to VGA. Also try a different cable for both VGA and DVI. If still the same might as well contact the Acer and check the warranty, normally monitor had 2-3 years of warranty, Have it replace if still under warranty.

I hope this works on your issue.

thank you for choosing Fixya.

Connectivity card from montior to CPU is different than other PCs, in back side of the monitor its showing to type VGA and other one DVi connector, In my CPU i dont have the slot for the DVi connector,...


DVI ==> Digital Video Input
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card has both DVI and VGA outputs,
then buy a DVI-to-DVI cable, and use it, for a better picture.
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card only has VGA output,
then use a VGA-to-VGA cable.
Or, purchase a video-card with DVI output,
to replace the video-card with VGA output,
and then use a DVI-to-DVI cable.

How can i use my acer monitor as a tv i lost my manual


The manual won't help you to much in this regard.
This monitor is a standard type that has both a VGA and DVI input.
Normally what you would use with a personal computer.

If you want to use it as a TV monitor you will have some sort of device that outputs to VGA or DVI.
DVI stands for "Digital Visual Interface" and it's preferable over VGA as it should potentially give you a better image.

This means:
A) A computer. You can build your own media TV and watch internet streamed shows like Hulu, Netfix, use as a DVD player, etc. I recommend this route. No more dependance on Cable companies! You just need internet.
B) Find a DVD, and, or Tuner/Cable/Satellite box that has these outputs.
If you want to use Cable or Satellite, contact your provider company and see if they have a box that will output to either VGA or DVI. Might have a hard time finding one of these, or it might cost more then it's worth.
C) Buy a S-Video input to VGA/DVI output. You can buy these for around $40.
Then you should be able to hook it up to just about any device as most modern TV devices will have an S-Video outputs.

Problem connecting DVI input of TV to DVI-D output of video card


For error code 0122, Don't play the movie or load your movie program until you have the resolution you want and have it set to display only on the hdtv . You do this by going to control panel, selecting "adjust common used mobility settings", and then clicking on "connect display. A pop-up will come up and give you the option to display only on the external display. Pick that. The thing that sucks is if you have the display set to 1920 x 1080, you can't see everything on your desktop when trying to view it on the tv.

I have my husband's hp monitor and thought I was going to go blind. I turned down the brightness to 0 and it still didn't help that much. I decided to turn down the contrast and it worked. Hope this helps.
