Question about Acer AL2216W LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Ghosting of the image

This monitor worked fine for a few months and developed the following problem. Even upon power up, the ACER characters seem to be ghosted/interlaced. The screen image is shown in a very distorted fashion whenever the monitor is connected. I have other LCD monitors at other resolutions (1280X1024 and 1400X1050) and have never seen such an issue. Any ideas - can this problem be fixed without costing as much as a new monitor?

No it is a board replacement at best, so i would look into replacing the vga board or getting a new monitor and selling the damaged one for parts with the issue listed

Samsung 245BW No Display


have you tried this monitor on another computer? what was the result? Also, try laying the monitor down flat and see if you see any "ghosting" from the characters on the screen. (if the backlight goes out on the monitor, you should be able to see some of the graphics displayed on the screen still with a flashlight or at an angle if the monitor is working)
let me know what you find out

Black screen with pulsing flickers of light


More likely to be capacitors failure in the power supply, worst case will be the lamps. You need to open it up and inspect the caps first, look for cap with buliging top/seal, see example of failed VIEWSONIC monitors due to bad caps (903b may be the sam as 902b): http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you find so we can guide you further.

Westinghouse LCM-22W2 has "ghosting"


Usually, LCD monitor ghosting appears when the cable isn't tight, the cable is faulty, or low quality. The cable should be less than 8-10 feet long. Try using a different monitor cable (they're mostly interchangable) and see if the problem goes away. I'd put my money on the cable or a loose cable connection.

Acer 22 inch monitor shuts off with indicator still green


The computer may be programmed to do a monitor shut off after lets say 20 minutes. This is a power saving feature of the operating system. Open Power Options under Control Panel.. select the drop down combo box that says "Turn off monitor" : set it to NEVER.

Ghosting


Does the monitor do this on all resolutions?

Try changing the refresh rate on the monitor's properties page and see if the effect changes at all.

Flickering, sparkeling, ghosting, you name it. Related to electricity in house?


No, it is not the electricity in your house, I had the same problem. Send it back to Samsung and get a new one. I have had to send my monitor back 4 times!
