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 :)

Lcd acer al1917w display blang white


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 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.

I have a acer.x223w when,it powers up the.screem stays black, n i get a blue blinking light on.the bottom


I disagree with ikkenom only due to the symptom of the flashing blue light. This would indicate to me that the monitor is not getting any display signal and is in sleep mode at least the is what happens on my Samsung monitor. Used to be that they use a two color led in the monitor, green when ON and getting display signal and amber or orange when in sleep mode. I would check the computer by trying a different monitor. If you have a second monitor, great, if not, maybe a friend will let you bring your computer over and try the computer with their monitor. Could also be a display adapter setting. Do you get any change when you first turn on your computer? i.e. Do you get the BIOS or manufacturer screen when first turned on? Also if you disconnect the monitor cable from the computer and power cycle the monitor, do you get a No Signal display for a few seconds before the monitor goes black and the blue light starts flashing?

Let me know what happens with the testing above or if you need further instructions to carry out testing.

Thanks, Jim

I have hooked my Acer 1912 monitor up to my toshiba laptop as a second screen. When I select a resolution of 1280 x 1024, the display on the monitor slides over five inches to the right and I only see half...


Friend,
On the monitor go to settings and shift the screen to the left till the display is correct. However, please check for other resolutions after you have shifted. May be the monitor is not geared up to take on 1280 X 1024. Check that as well.

My acer al1916w displays the image for 3 seconds then goes black


Sounds like your video card. Check to make sure it's connected properly. If so, check to make sure it's properly seated to *********** board. The possible issue could be the card is connected enough to display the picture, but not enough to communicate with the monitor to stay on because it has an active feed. Best of luck fixing it
