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?

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
Sorry, it's a graphics fault. Looks like its time to get a new monitor. Few repair shops will do toch LCD monitors.There IS a possibility that your PC has a graphics problem.You could check it out by connecting your PC to another monitor,or by connecting your monitor to another PC, or a notebook/laptop.
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.
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.
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.
It's turns blue to power safe mode (yellow) it's prevent futher damaged to your monitor. It's seems you got a busted backlight inverter. Need to replaced a new one...Since you only got it for a few months, send it back to Acer for a replacement of a new backlight inverter... Have a nice day!
