Failing capacitors in the power supply will cause this problem and it's fairly common accross all brands.

The parts are cheap, but the labour costs can be high.

If you cannot do this procedure yourself, and also understand the dangers of the electronics, then call several TV repair shops in your area to get a quote, you maybe surprised how much the price can vary.

Just advise them you need to have the capacitors on the power board replaced. It will help them give you a more accurate quote.

My husbands monitor keeps switching off


I had this exact same problem. The monitor kept switching off shortly after turning it on. I found a shorted capacitor (1000uF 10V) in the power supply. Replaced that and now it works fine.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My Acer Al1715 monitor does not display a picture the power is fine as the green light flashes but no picture at all


The light should come on steady. Your monitor most likely has the typical failed capacitor problem. The Power Supply board in the monitor most likely has some capacitors that have failed, visible signs include swelling of the ends of the parts, but they can fail without showing any visible sgns. Replacement of the capacitors often restores operation.

Acer AL1715 power issues


I have an ACER AL 1706 monitor that would not power up completely. After pushing the power button, only the yellow light would stay on indication a power up fault. After careful inspection of the power boards caps, there was visible swelling of the 47mF and 22mF radial caps on the top part of the caps where the tiny cannisters 4 edges are folded down flat. I replaced these caps( 6 on my board) because there is reaaly no way to actually test them and bought new ones from Radio Shack. Now my Acer monitor came back to life with no other problems. I recommened using replacement caps with same microfarad values, but if the voltage rating is not exact, it is o.k. to get the next higher voltage rated caps available and should work fine.

Acer al1711


Hi.  I have no experience with an AL1711 but this sounds very much like the power supply problem that affects the AL1715.

If you understand electronics then you need to check the power supply for faulty components (there were two faulty capacitors in my AL1715).  Replacements should cost about 10p each and however much time it takes.

Unfortunately if you're not into electronics then there's really not much you can do.

If you do take the back off then please post whether you can see any faulty components.

AL1715 flat screen pc.


It could be one of 2 things.
#1 A broken wire in the cable between the computer and monitor. You will be ale to test this by moving the cable in a circular motion close to the computer and then close to the monitor to see if ti corrects the problem.

#2 A failing CCFL (the light tubes inside the monitor). If this is the case then it's not normally cost effective to have repaired. The part is not expensive, but the repair cost can be high due to the high risk nature of the repair. One slip while doing this operation can cause a complete failure of the physical LCD panel. The driver tabs that connect the panel to the controller baord are extremely fragile.

Will not close down


These monitors go into a standby just incase you are only restarting the PC.
To turn it off properly, hit the power button on the monitor before Windows has completely turned the computer off.

IE: tell Windows to shutdown, when you see the blue screen telling you Windows is shutting down, turn it off then.

Hope that helps
