Acer AL1916W won't display

After a I shut down my PC and reboot, the monitor, an Acer AL1916W, comes off standby and flashes from a black screen to a grey/white screen and back to black. It may do this a couple of times but does not begin to display. I've tried to turn it off, unplug it, disconnect it fro m the PC but no good. Once by turning it off and back on the ACER logo came up and all was well. Now it won't display at all. Is it toast or am I missing something?

SOURCE: Acer AL1916W 19" problem

Hello mat78, Unfortunatelly the problem is hardware based. You will need to have the monitor repaired in a service center. Here's why: LCD/TFT monitors don't produce light themselves. They are composed by a matrix of transistors (TFT - thin film transistor) that have the property to reflect or allow some light (certain wavelenghts)to pass through them. They don't produce light by themselves. Instead there is a fluorescent tube (neon like) light inside the monitor and that's the light source used in order for you to see what's on the screen. A flourescent light is suposed to last pretty much, i don't think yours has a problem, you say it works for some seconds or so. Instead your problem is most probable with the inverter circuitry that powers on that light. It's a common problem among these types of monitors but in your situation i don't think it will be an expensive repair. In the case that the screen is dark (in a dark place you can't read or view anything on it) but if you apply light to it ( a flashlight or something) and you see something, then the problem is most likely to have occured with the invertor. Try to ask at a local service center for a repair, this shouldn't be an expensive procedure. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: problem with the acer al1916w

If the displayed logo is good, but windows is not, it suggests a problem with the windows graphic driver or windows itself. In the early stage of boot, it uses a graphic display from the BIOS. This changes to the Windows display as it gets on its feet. If you have Knoppix or some bootable CD/DVD, try that. Then you will know if it is Software or hardware.

SOURCE: Monitor repeatedly flashes Acer logo and computer display in cycles

We had the same problem with the 17" we bought in Aug. Sent it back for repair. Acer sent it back without fixing the problem. Started doing it again in Nov. This time I called a supervisor and they sent me a new monitor. Well yesterday it started doing the same thing. You can fix it temp buy unplugging it and holding down the on-off switch for 30 seconds. Please let me know if you have a better fix.

SOURCE: why do I get a "No Signal" on my Acer x193w monitor?

sounds like a video card issue.  Check the screen on another computer.  If it is doing the same thing, it is the monitor.  If it doesn't, then you have a video card issue

Screen stays black but lit when shut down


If the monitor led is indicating stand by and it seems as if the monitor is still on, could be a sign of an aging monitor. As long as the led changes along with the function of the monitor there's really no way to indicate the monitor still on after shut down especially when the led is amber telling you it's on standby mode.

Monitor colors are not displaying correctly


Hi, At the worst it is a blown monitor, but have hope. 1st try a new or known good lead, between monitor and PC. 2nd put monitor with own lead on good PC. if 1st works = result. if 2nd and monitor is same, suspect monitor, however, if 2nd works ok on other PC, then look at ur vid card. Either way, this test sequence should save you some $. Be lucky.

Input not supported when trying to play a game


the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
