    I turned my monitor off for a few days while I was away from my home. I returned to find out that when I pressed the power button... I got nothing.. no light saying it was on.. no screen flicker.. nothing.. changed the power cord several times to make sure that was not the issue.. I use a dual monitor system so I just switched it to a single monitor with the monitor that works.. Any idea on what the inverter board would cost and where to get one?

I used to repair LCD monitor from Dell. It works for me. You might be using these following steps to examine what is the problem of your LCD monitor. After you turned PC on and monitor stopped working or went black, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image (Start menu), there will be a minor problem. This is because of CCFL lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. You don't need to do anything with the inverter board in this case. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

On my Acer AL1916W monitor the screen comes on for a few seconds then goes off but the power light is still green.


Hi.

That is often an inverter failure. Try turning off the room light, and point a flashlight sticking to the dark screen. If you can see a very faint picture, then the inverter has failed.
Before replacing the inverter, the PSU must also be tested. If the PSU does not supply power to inverter, then the PSU and not the inverter is the part to be tested.

If the screen is not dark, but there is backlight and no picture, then the problem is not the inverter. In that case check the source and the connection cable. If the cable is OK, then it is usually the main controller board inside the monitor. Once again the part must be tested.

Regards.

Ginko.

Most likely a problem with internal capacitors either blown or swelling or leaking. Can be repaired by replacing the faulty capacitors but recommended that this be carried out be a qualifed technician

ACER LCD monitor has no power.


It is probably the inverter which powers the backlight. It should say inverter right on it.

SCREEN GOES BLACK AFTER A FEW SECONDS AFTER TURNING MONITOR ON.


More often then not, this is attributed to a failing Backlight Inverter. A Backlight Inverter, is a power board mounted below the screen that actually send power to the Lamp inside the LCD itself. Check to see, when it goes out if there isn't still some images faint in the screen. If this is the case take it to a local repair shop and have them order one and replace it. repair cost for this shuold be around 65-100 dollars.

If this helps, please rate my solution. Have a great day.

LCD Monitor Acer AL1717 shtting down problem


Hello,

Aside from the capacitor and IC, there's a relay that you need to change. You need to locate that defective relay on the PCB and replace it.

It would be best to consult the manufacturer of the LCD and get the exact part number of it.

Have a great day!
