Disconnect completely computer and display form power cable for ten minutes, plug them back and restart ().This is called hard reset.
If you still have the problem try checking the display video cable, both in the monitor and computer socket.
If it still does not work connect PC to a different monitor, just to test that is not the pc or the video card the problem.
If it still does not work the blackout may have caused a short in your monitor or a system failure on pg then get back here and post the new problem.

If the monitor is completely dead, then is sounds like the power supply board has failed. Sometimes it an easy fix, by replacing a fuse. Most LCD monitors do hav a fuse, the only way to know for sure is to open the case and troubleshoot the power supply.

Sounds like your monitor is going dead. If its under warranty that would be the best way to go. Specifically it sounds like the power inverter is dead or there is a busted capacitor.

Screen went blank and orange light is on


fiona_sheeha, If ACER warranty service not an option, then unit will need local tech to troubleshoot unit's power supply/inverter circuit for possible COMMON and repairable printed circuit board fix. You must read more of my fixya profile and visit the web links you find there so you will know and understand what ALL your options are!!! Some units require less than $5 in parts to refurbish them to working status. Your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" backlit LCD monitor isn't any different than any other brand of monitor in it's basic operating principles!! I hope this helps. 12fixlouie

Monitor power light blinks blue but does not power on


if the screen was fryed the fuse would of blew which means there would be no lights at all.. the best thing you can do is plug your screen into another pc to see if anything happens.. if nothing happens then yeah your screen must of messed up somewhere.. but if your screen works on another computer then your graphics card config cant be right somewhere along the line

Monitor made a popping sound and went blank. no computer or tv signal coming through.


Sounds like a Power Supply comcponent failure in the high voltage panel supply circuit.
Backlight power seems to be ok.

Can only suggest obtaining repair quotations vs. Replacement purchase?

Do you have the same issue when the cable is disconnected from the computer? If so, and the the brightness function doesn't change, then you have an IC Chip failure and the replacement boards are not available to you or me as Dell is Dell and everything from them is proprietary. If you are under warranty pursue that if not, time to replace. Consider this a time, unwanted time, but time to upgrade.

Oh, your right about the sacrificial diode on the power card... you wouldn't see anything.

Hope this fixed ya.

Had a Acer al2017


If your picture was okay when it was running and the screen was not pinkish then the power board inside the monitor is in need of an overhaul.
Your unplugging it and plugging it back in just did a temporary reset by discharging the capaciotrs for a bit.
It more than likely needs new capacitors installed.
I have done a few of these and do a lot of inverter power board repairs through ebay id bammbammfran

Power


check the power pack to see if it has the required output voltage, usually 12-15 volts. solidstate power packs are prone to failure. The LCD screens require between 2 and 4 amps to power them. A strain on some power packs. Gary(Honkity Hank)
