There are two common reasons for that problem. 1) Your video card on your pc may be having issues. 2) Your monitor is not working properly
Here is a test to isolate the problem to the monitor. Plug it into another pc or laptop VGA or DVI slot and try to power it on again. If it works then you know for sure it's your video card giving trouble. Either gone bad or needs the drivers to be updated/uninstalled and reinstalled.
If it doesn't work then you're looking at some monitor repair or potentially a new one. However since you said you saw the Acer logo, it's a positive sign it's not really your monitor as it would not work all together if it had an issue.
Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa.com

SOURCE: Acer AL1916W 19" problem

Hello mat78, Unfortunatelly the problem is hardware based. You will need to have the monitor repaired in a service center. Here's why: LCD/TFT monitors don't produce light themselves. They are composed by a matrix of transistors (TFT - thin film transistor) that have the property to reflect or allow some light (certain wavelenghts)to pass through them. They don't produce light by themselves. Instead there is a fluorescent tube (neon like) light inside the monitor and that's the light source used in order for you to see what's on the screen. A flourescent light is suposed to last pretty much, i don't think yours has a problem, you say it works for some seconds or so. Instead your problem is most probable with the inverter circuitry that powers on that light. It's a common problem among these types of monitors but in your situation i don't think it will be an expensive repair. In the case that the screen is dark (in a dark place you can't read or view anything on it) but if you apply light to it ( a flashlight or something) and you see something, then the problem is most likely to have occured with the invertor. Try to ask at a local service center for a repair, this shouldn't be an expensive procedure. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Blank ACer X221W Monitor

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After it went dim and blank, you have to check 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, there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.

SOURCE: Monitor comes up shows "acer" then says no signal and goes black

Acer Field Service Bulletin

DATE: 04/03/08 NUMBER: mn_029

SUBJECT:
REVISED - The message "No Signal" sporadically appears on the screen.

AFFECTS: X241 monitors ET.L990B.029

ISSUE:
This is an update to the document original published 9/19/07
While the X241W monitor is in use, it might show "No Signal" on screen abnormally.
Sometimes, the monitor may still continue to display video.
Other times the monitor may be go black. For some customers, the problem will correct itself in a minute. These problems often occur during the first 20 minutes the monitor is powered on.

SOLUTION:
Short term #1 – Unplug the monitor to reset the video controller.

Long term #1 - The main board firmware can be reflashed to a newer version of
firmware by an Acer authorized monitor repair depot. The latest firmwares are listed below.

for monitor with s/n version “00” and ”10” FW = WDTD-D1AP0 V1.03
for monitor with s/n version “12” FW = WDTD-D1SP0 V1.02
for monitor with s/n version “13” FW = WDTD-D2AP0 V1.03

ACTION REQUIRED:
Confirm the firmware has been updated prior to returning the monitor to the customer
or to stock.
When an Acer service repair technician updates the firmware, they should record that
the part IN-MONITOR was used.

SPECIAL TOOLS
6K.ISPVE.001 Tool Kit with a corresponding DB-15 and Serial data cable.
USB-A to USB-B cable for power.

PARTS REQUIRED
Replace main board if firmware update does not resolve the problem. See spares parts list for p/n.

SOURCE: Screen Goes Blank

Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

Hi there. My monitor has been working fine up to yesterday. I have all connections plugged in and i turn on the monitor and then the ACER sign comes up and then it says No Signal. and then the blue light...


Your monitor is fine, the problem lies with your computer. Your monitor is not receiving the POST signal from your computer. I suggest you remove your computers graphics card and plug your monitor cable into onboard graphics, then power up and see if the monitor gets a signal. If it does then it means that your graphics card has stopped working. If you still don't get signal then I suggest you take your PC to your local computer shop and get a qualified technition to have a look at it just in case the motherboard is damaged. You can also try out your monitor on another system just to be sure.

Acer monitor says no signal, then goes blank. Is


We are using the same monitor type.. humm it's good that i already had experience with it. No drivers needed to install this monitor, check the connection to the PC and to the monitor, make sure they are inserted properly. Sometimes when you put on the PC first and then power on the Monitor causes this problem. The best recommend resolution is 1440X990, good luck..

Check your connections to the PC. Make sure that they are nice and secure. If there is a resolution problem setting it should display the boot process and then go blank after starting the operating system.

Just got off the phone with Acer Suppport. This was after I sent an email to them, that suggested that I call. 8-/ annoying. So the guy on the phone says there is one thing that we can do before sending it in. Unplug it completely for the wall and computer. Hold the on/off button in for 30 secs. reconnect power and the computer. It worked for me
