Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I have owned an Acer X241W for 2 1/2 years. I have tried every solution listed above (except main board replacement), and more. None are long term fixes. I have sent the monitor back to Acer for repairs twice, which cost me $65 for shipping. Both times, the monitor came back with a note from a technician stating that no problem could be found. This is ridiculous! Like others have said, "I will never own another Acer product."

Mazricool, Will monitor do same strange things when connected to a different "known-good" computer other than YOUR'S ??? What is it that your unit does that you don't like about it? What is the pc operating system that you are using it with. Try installing monitor on different pc first. 12fixlouie

Picture went out on 2-year-old Samsung TV model UN50EH5000F. I have sound and full backlight but no video.


You have replaced everything that could have gone wrong - except for the video Screen itself. Check the connections (ribbon) to the screen for oxidation - use eraser to clean.

WHILE WATCHING MY TV TONIGHT I HEARD A LOUD POP AND NOW NO PICTURE JUST BLINKING RED LIGHT


10 blinks for this tv is not always an A Board issue. It can be a problem with the power board as well. A technician should look at the set to dertermine where the problem lies otherwise it is just a guessing game of inni minni miny moe.

My X241w until recently required about 10 or more power ups before it would stay on without shutting itself off. As I was getting ready to replace it I tried setting the resolution to 1980x1080 in...


It may have a lot of dying caps as shown in my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/ACER%20X241W/

More damage will be done if the caps get real bad.
The size of this monitor is big but I find the picture quality is not too good.

Acer netbook wont turn on


You must be facing any of these four issues:
1) power issue
2) No POST
3) NO Boot
4) No video

Power issue - the system does not turn on at all. In this case check the AC adapter and the battery.

No POST - You may have to check the Memory, Hard drive and the optical drive. Can also be an issue with the video card2.gif/ key board/ mouse/main board which can prevent the system from turning on.
try reseating all the components above except the motherboard.

No Boot - Issue with the Operating system2.gif. Try booting into safe mode and check whether the system turns on perfectly. If so try to uninstall all the software you do not use. and may also consider a system restore2.gif. else consider a Dell Complete factory restore.

No video - Try flashing light on the screen and look for the desktop. If you see the icons then probably the back light needs to be changed else the issue is with the display itself or the video card.

Kindly comment.

My acer monitor


I have answered this in other threads but to reiterate....
The Gray rectangle "No Signal" I use a Power Strip and Turn off as soon as it cycles back to Normal screen. It is so much easier then to unplug and Plug back in when it does happen.
As for the Newer Problem(s) and I too have had mine for only couple of years... Copied from Previous post
This is not a Fix to the Problem, If you read some of the other "fixes" that relate to this you will see that it is a more serious problem and one that Acer should Do the Honorable Thing and have a Recall.
I actually went in side on three of the Same Monitors and one that was a 21 inch and found the problem is "HEAT"
You can see where a Board actually shows Browning on the Circuitry I am Going to try to order a new board P/N:AS08B360411.
I will update as soon as work is completed.

Television


What you are describing is a Degaussing Problem. This normally occurs if some Magnetic source - speakers, Tape recorder, Walkie Talkie, etc- is brought close to the TV. If this problem has started imediately after the technician replaced your Main Board, it is entirely possible that he has forgotten to connect the Auto Degaussing Coils to the Main Board.Call him and ask him to do so. he will also be having a small device called a Degaussing coil, which he should bring and 'demagnetize' the Picture Tube. should not take more than 10 minutes. If it has started after a few days of the Main board being replaced, then, do not worry, they will go away on their own in a few says, when the Set's Automatic Deagaussing circuits will slowly clear the patches. Also, try to see and locate the source of Magnetism - listed above - and remove from the area around the TV set. Again, the technecian can bring his Deagaussing Coil and demagnetize the Tube, and picture should now be Ok.
