Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

My monitor will not go back on. There is a green light blinking

I shut my computer down and the next morning, when I started it again, my monitor would not go on. There is a green light blinking on the lower right hand corner on what I thought was the power button. Any ideas? Do I need a new monitor? When I called Acer support "Raj" listened to my problem and then said "I think you have a problem with your monitor. Send it back to us."!

Hi ,

In order to isolate whether its the monitor or the compurter tower you can do a self test to check if the monitor is fine .Turn the computer off and then disconnect the cable for the monitor from the back panel of the computer tower.It will be a blue connector with screws on it .Undo the screws and then disconnect it then turn the computer on ,if the monitor is fine you should get a message that would say check input signal or you will have some kind of message on the screen that tells you that the data cable to the monitor is not connected.If u dont get any message that simply means that the monitor has gone bad and needs to be replaced...

hope this helps you .....all the best

Takes to long for the monitor to start


This is a power supply problem in the monitor. There is an unstable component or components that are failing or you have some cold solder joints in the connections.The reason it turns on is that some components are self healing and will sometimes stabilize after warm-up periods.Cold solder joints sometime close after heating up in the circuit You should return to dealer for repair or replacement. Hope this helps you.

Flashing green power light - Black screen


I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard

Monitors on/off green light flashes


Try first unplugging the monitor and the computer from the wall for 12 to 24 hours. If this does not work, hook up another monitor to the puter to see if the problems with the puter or the monitor.
