Question about Acer AL1912B 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Sporadic Discoloration & Distortion

I have had this LCD monitor for a while. After using it for about a year, it started to have short periods where the colors on screen would sporadically discolor in odd patterns. These initially short periods became longer and more severe, eventually reaching the point where the screen would become severely distorted and scrambled. Nothing I did seemed to help, and eventually the monitor became unusable and I shelved it.

About 6 months later I reconnected it on a lark, and it worked fine again! After another few months now though, it is beginning to act up again, getting gradually worse just like it did the first time. Disconnecting it from the computer and power sources for a day or two at a time does not seem to help, and I do not leave the monitor on as a habit.

Most of these monitors have a 3 year warrantly. Give them a ring and see if they will exchange it. No harm in trying!

My monitor is making a electronic sort of distortion noise (sizziling). Anyway to rectify it?

Check the security of the power cord and look for damage to the plug and moulded plug, see the pins are in tight, vheck the plug socket on the monitor to see the reccieving pins are not bent or damaged.

After that, the issue lies in a short or developing short on the board, if you notice any smell (burning plastic ), you should stop using it and get it tested and repaired

Monitor switches on ok, but; after a short period; switches off.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My monitor goes to sleep all the time it is very frustrating

Go into Control Panel, then to Power Options.
In XP, you see a selection for Turn Off Monitor. Adjust that setting as desired.
In Vista, you'll see Choose when to turn off display on the left side. Choose that option and select the desired time setting to turn the display off.

Sporadic signal -- loses visual-goes blank then resumes

Check your cable between your monitor and computer first. Otherwise you either have a faulty video card or monitor. If you are using an LCD monitor it will most likely be the card. If you are using a tube style monitor I would start there first. Borrow a monitor from a friend and see if it continuse to happen.

793S 17" CRT Monitor Problem

Have X2gen LCD Monitor with the same type of problem.

Take apart the LCD screen and reseat all ribbon cables. Make sure they are connecting right. I found a black wire on one ribbon cable that was not seated in the connector correctly.
RESEAT ALL CONNECTORS carefully to avoid breakage.

Look for discoloration on all connectors to see if they was an overvoltage to a short causing the screen problems. If you see discoloration you know you have the connector they cause your screen problem.
