2 Answers

I bought an LCD Monitor Model AL1916W,Acer. It was working good and for my job it was excellent.However, yesterday without any other problem the screen went to white.Power button went red.I closed and open it again but the screen had the same color, Grey to white with no signal. It flash for 2 sec and the power button became red again. I am thinking that the monitor might burned if there is no other explanation. The question is how this happened?

They are made to failed, you can see your monitors and all other brands as well that failed after a couple of years. Look for bad caps and bad solder joints as suggest by Louie.

Christidis d, If AL1916W has white screen when connected to a "known-good" pc, then the units "switch-mode-power-supply" has gone bad. Most monitors have +5 volts and +12volts dc to power up the electronics. +12v for the inverter circuit which lights-up the 2 cold cathode fluorescent lamps, and +5v for the vga to lcd panel digital signal processing board. One or both of dc rails may be out of regulation and or a bit "noisey" due to failed "electrolytic filter capacitors" on the SMPS board. Let me know the brand name of the capacitors you find on the SMPS board. What is the "date of manufacture" on rear of monitor?

I have an acer Al1916W 19" LCD monitor. And the picture is off-center, it leaves about 1inch at the right side and a half in on the top, in 1400X900 res, and leaves about 3 inches of black at the left side...


The "native" resolution of the monitor is 1440 (not 1400) by 900.

Set the video-card to 1440-by-900 or try 1080-by-675 or try 720-by-450 or try 960-by-600.

Black spot on the monitor .


I beleive the liquid had leaked into between the LCD panel and the filter sheets. Hopefully it will dry out, otherwise you have to disassemble the panel which not to be done unless you have clean room to work in.

How long should my Acer AL1916W last, I bought it a little over a year ago and It's dead?


In my mind everything should last forever but cause most everything is manufactured overseas in bulk, there is bound to be problems cause of lack of quality checks and recalls.

In your case cause there is no power then its either going to be bad caps on the power board or a bad lcd that is shorting out the monitor.

Either way it would be more cost effective to buy a new monitor unless you have good soldering skills to where you can look for puffy caps and replace them with caps of the same value.

caps=capacitors

Acer AL1916W no sign of life.


If Power LED lits up and then turns to orange (standby mode) but no display, pls check SMT fuse (F200), replace the caps and replace 40T03GP power mosfet N-channel enhancement mode. Good luck

I think that would be the other way around. You need to replace it with a card that supports LCD monitor.

Sound


If your monitor have inbuilt speaker, then you need not to plug it, because the monitor cable will work for that. I have ViewSonic 19" with inbuilt speaker and its working without any extra cable or connection.

ACER LCD monitor no image, appears white color only


Quickly go to the Acer website and check FAQ's and while there also find out how to get an RMA to return it. My guess is you have a bad monitor. At $200 roughly for a replacement I would hustle. I am assuming you got nothing but a white screen but did get video on your TV.

No Signal


Probably the settings on the computer graphics card output.
You need to selct the external screen.

Just to be sure it's not a screen fault, are you able to test it on another PC (desktop, not laptop)?
