Question about Acer AL1711 17" LCD Monitor

Power board malfunction

Hi,

The technician said that my power board is gone. What can I do about this?
Should I scrap the monitor and go for a new one or is this fixable? I would also like to know if the components are available for purchase and/or if it is cheaper to go for a new monitor altogether.

Your advise is much appreciated.
Thank you

Hi,

There may be four (4) ways the repair could be done:
1. board - an entirely new power board maybe available from the monitor manufacturer or you can Google for OEM provider;
2. board - a refurbished/reworked board may be available, again you have to Google. Both 1 & 2 would require that you search for the actual PCB assembly number;
3. use the power supply board from an identical unit that has defective LCD panel, inverter or other problems/defect other than the PSU; and
4. component level repair - determine which components in the power supply are defective and needs replacement.

All of the above would require time. Time to look for the replacement board, time to determine which component to replace, time to do the actual repair.

Cost - depends on the tech. Of course board assembly would cost more to purchase but should be relatively easy to perform and therefore should not be expensive in terms of service. On the other hand, component level repair often would be cheaper in terms of parts purchases but would cost more in terms of service fees.

Taking into considerations the above factors, it may be more to your advantage to do the repairs yourself (no service fee). Still should you be uncomfortable on a DIY, then the cost of repairs might justify the purchase of a new LCD monitor instead.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Power light becomes dim


I have discovered that this is a common problem with monitors and it is caused by capacitor failure. The capacitors in your monitor hold power enough for the display on your monitor. Inside your monitor, on the board where the power cable is connected, that is where you will find capacitors. Get any computer technician to open up your monitor and check for any bulged or burst capacitor. A malfunctioning capacitor will be identified with a bulged head or a burst. Remove the failed capacitor(s) and replace with the same type of capacitor(s) with the same voltage and degrees. Make sure that you note the polarity (-) and (+) when you are replacing the capacitors. This would help you out of your problems

The screen has gone black no picture, how to i fix it?


Hello,

Have you check all connection to see if they are right, check if no cable was unplug, if you have and yet no picture display, It could be that the picture board on your monitor has started malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Wont stay on


IF there is no display even with a flashlight, the P/S board is malfunctioning. Bad capacitors or LCD driver board circuit. Mine did this and it was bad caps, 4 of 8 were bad and a burned out chip on the P/S board.

Monitor failure


There are bulbs that light up the display so you can see it on the inside. They go out, just like the bulb in your bathroom. No way to fix this and get the dam thing back together. Toss it and get a new one. I've got photos of the one I took apart. It's a mess. But very cool to look at.

Acer AL1714 17" LCD Monitor Good Power supply no power on monitor


Hello, I have to same problem. I returned my monitor to Acer but got it back unrepaired, they could not see the malfunction. But I kept on sending it back, until I got a new model. Now after 2 years I get the same thing with this monitor. But there's no warranty anymore, so I looked into the problem myself. I found out that inside the powercircuit board is connected to the mainboard through a 10pin connector. The 5 pins that are on the lowest row, show a trace of white powder, I suppose occidation. I sprayed a little of contactspray in it. I must say the problem is not gone, but much better. The problem shows not so frequent anymore and lasts not so long. At first the screen switched of for 3 to 5 minutes and came back on. Now the screen is gone for perhaps 1 second and returns. So I'm almost convinced the problem has something to do with the connection of the powercircuitboard inside and the mainboard inside, when the monitor heats up a bad connection occurs due to occidation of the 10 pin connector. If you find a solution that fixes the problem 100% let me know, please. Mario.

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
