Hello,

Slow starting, no power or a flickering display are all indications of a failing power supply. Check out this article on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/repairing-the-acer-al2216w-lcd-monitor/ The power supply board in your monitor should be the DAC-19M010. To correct the problem you will need to replace the capacitors that are failing. You will need to replace 7 capacitors on the board. This does involve a bit of soldering but is an easy thing to do. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service, you can get the details of that here: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/service-request-form/ If you have any questions just let us know.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

You may have problem in the logic board, it uses surface monted components no much chance for DIY repair.
Service manual; http://elektrotanya.com/?q=showresult&megnev=Acer&megnev2=AL2216W&kategoria=monitor&kat2=all

The cases these days are hard to open, they use plastic finger hooks types, they go in easy but real hard to remove without damageing them.
Use thin flat blade to crack open at the bottom edge so the scratches will not be so noticeable, and work your way around, look out for cables attached to the front bezel also.

Not Good..
After you've checked that the video cable is connected properly, make sure that all the pins in the video cable plugs are straight and not broken off. Then test on another PC. Make sure your CMOS battery has not gone flat, as some PC's will fail to load basic drivers if CMOS memory is lost. The battery should show no less than 2.5v, if it's marked 3 volts when tested on a multimeter. If you can't test it, just buy a new one at the supermarket or hardware, usually around $4.00.
Next thing to try is your Video Card . If it is an on board one like most are now, there isn't anything you can do but try another card in an expansion slot or fit a new motherboard. At this point, I'm sad to say, you're better taking it to a PC shop where they will have a few things at their disposal to try.

Hello,I am currently using a Viewsonic VX2235 monitor. When I turn on the PC the monitor stays black and it takes turning the monitor on and off several times to get it to work. Would greatly appreciate...


Hello,

The problem you are having is caused by a power supply board that is starting to fail. Parts called capacitors start to fail and the power supply does not start up as it should and requires power cycling to get it going. Most VX2235 units use the DAC-19M010 power board. Here is a link that shows how to repair the board by replacing the bad capacitors.

Monitor turns on flickers twice then stays at a black screen


Test that your memory chips are fully inseted in their sockets as this can some times prevent displays from working.

Same problem, acer sucks imo


I think I may have fixed it but I haven't rebooted my computer yet. I uninstalled the latest ATI driver version 9.3 and then installed an older driver version 7.3. Monitor now turns on and off and gets signal every time so far. I'll post back if it the problem comes back after I reboot.
