Acer LCD monitor, powers on, no display.

A friend gave me his old Acer LCD Monitor. It powers on
and displays for maybe one second before going black. I tried going to the Acer Website for trouble shooting, but it did not resolve any problems. Is it expensive to have this repaired, or am I better off just throwing it in the trash?

The backlight inverter has "malfunctioned" and isn't lighting the backlights anymore. If you are electronics savvy you can follow these directions to fix it, otherwise mail it to me and buy a new one :)

How do I lighten my screen


Dear Anonymous,
Please give as much information as possible. The problem may be caused by Hardware; Software; or both! Please describe the problem in detail. What kind of monitor - (screen) - do you have? Is it an old CRT - (Cathode Ray Tube) - or an LCD - (Liquid Crystal Display...?). There are usually buttons on the monitor for setting General display functions, including Brightness/ Contrast etc. Try swapping the monitor with a friend's one that you know works. If the good second one is as dark as...beyond adjustments on the monitor, then that would suggest that the problem lies with the computer video output...What kind of computer do you have? etc., etc.
Please help us to help you...Awaiting your response...

Tip

LCD monitor displays background fine for a second then goes black


If your LCD monitor displays your desktop fine as it boots up and then goes blank after a few seconds, but you can still faintly see your desktop then this may seem like a brightness issue but it's not. The picture displays very faintly, this is because the LCD backlighting isn't working properly. Which in turn is either because (most likely in cases like this) the inverter circuit has failed or the cold cathode tube has blown. If you're new to the electronics business and are not sure how to solder and connect circuits then this is the job for a qualified repair technician. So i suggest you head on down to your local PC store and have a technician take a look.

If you want to try it youself go here to order some spares.
If the monitor switches off and you can't see your desktop faintly then this may just be a power saving issue. Yo fix this check out my other tip here.

If your monitor is less than a year old then I suggest you take it back to where you bought it and have them send it in for repairs or swop it out with a new one. LCD monitors usually have at least a 1 year warranty sometimes it can even be up to 3 years if you register yours when you purchase it or if it's a really expensive screen.

If the monitor is a good 4-5 years old then it may not be worth fixing or may be too expensive. I suggest you invest in a newer widescreen option. LCD monitors have drastically come down in price over the years and you can easily get a wopping 23" for as little as $180.

Boot in f 12 windows starts then black screen


Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

may be this is you are mentioning there is no display in your monitor or u have already getting the boot display. if u getting the boot display it must be the problem of your monitor inverter board in side ur lcd. otherwise it must have your computer memory not working properly so u must clean and re install your memory first.thank you.

My monitor screen is ok for awhile but suddenly turns a dull yellow color. I just bought it a few months ago.


Hi,
you must adjust the display settings in the software program that was being used to change the display setting.
  • If you have a flat panel LCD monitor, unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor.
  • Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet.
  • If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad.
  • follw the another steps-
  • Replace the monitor power cable.
    1. Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
    2. Replace the video cable. Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
    3. If the monitor does not work after replacing the cables, replace or service the monitor
  • Thanks,

    I agree, if you did a combo of keystrokes (re: cntrl+F5 for monitor) thats only a shortcut keystroke and should be able to do and undo all changes in "control panel">"display">"settings">advanced
