Question about Acer 22" X223w LCD Monitor

1 Answer

When monitor powers up, it gets as far as displaying the startup screen then goes blank. The power-on light goes back to orange from blue. All computer systems are OK. In fact I am using the twin to this monitor now. Just woke up one morning and this was the problem!

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Power is on but after 2-4 seconds display turns off but power is still on where the power light is in blue.it's not in sleep mode where the power color is orange.it just goes back to normal at random...


Without looking at the monitor to confirm this, I suspect you have failing capacitors which power the HT circuit, simply, the power needed to light the display, is leaking to earth, capacitors have lost the ability to store the charge necessary to illuminate the screen, which is why it is working erratically.
You need to get this checked out by a TV technician.

The capacitors for the power source are failing. This causes a short burst of power to get to the lamps, but then they cannot hold a charge to continuously power the lamps. You will have to replace the monitor. I suggest checking your warranty status and replacing the monitor.

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.

Monitor only stays on for 30 sec. & then goes off then if I remove the power cord & re-power it up it comes on for another 30 sec. then goes back off


Howdy folks. There are only 3 things that can go wrong with a screen. Since you both are experiencing the same symptoms, let's ask the same question: When the screen goes blank, is the power button still green or is it orange? A green light indicates a good power supply and a bad screen. An orange light indicates a bad power supply but a good screen. I used to take them apart and try to fix them but they just aren't worth the trouble because they are so inexpensive nowadays.
Either way, I'm the bearer of bad news. It looks like you'll both be getting new screens. Please don't hold it against me when you rate my solution! ;-)

LCD monitor goes blank


It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.

Try this.

Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


I am not familiar with your particular model, but I do know what the problem is.
The inverter that runs the lights behind the screen is faulty and needs to be repaired. The lights shine from the top and bottom and reflect outwards through the panel so you can see what is on the screen. If you start the computer up, then shine a bright light into the panel you will see an image on the screen, but very feintly.
This can be cheap, it can also be expensive depending on where you go to get it repaired. Call aorund to a few TV shops in your area to get a rough idea on prices.

Hope that helps =)

Screen goes blank


Hi jkm007, Sounds like the back light inverter board is bad. It's a very common problem. LCD's use four small cold compact fluorescent bulbs to back light the display. (thats what gives the LCD it's brightness allowing you to see it) The inverter board runs these lights and when they go bad they will typically show symptoms like you have or the monitor power light comes on and you have either no display or a very dim display. If you ever have one that has no display but the power light is on you can check by shining a flashlight directly into the LCD from the front (right into the screen) if you can see an image then it's either the inverter board (most likely) or the CCFL bulbs have gone bad. The inverter board and CCFL's are replaceable. Good Luck, El Duderino
