Inspect the inside first for bad caps.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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 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.

Also had this issue on the Touchsmart IQ526. Removed the CMOS battery, waited some minutes, then powered on. The power button remained blue and had video again. Reinserted the CMOS battery and put the unit back together. Note - the battery was on the mainboard.

Monitor is switching off immediately after system is switched on. Again when monitor is switched on, images appear for about 3 seconds and again monitor switches off.pl give the solution.


You need to determine if you is turning off or going into standby mode. When your monitor shuts off, the power light will turn orange if it is in standby or the light will turn completely off if the monitor turns off. If your monitor goes to standby, that means that your monitor is losing signal which indicates a problem with your PC. #1 Make sure cable is firmly secured and both screws are tight #2 Check your video card make sure that it is firmly in its slot. Take it out and put it back in. *as long as your computer is open give it a good cleaning with compressed air* If those things check out it is possible that your video card has failed and needs to be replaced.
If your monitor is powering off #1Check plugins- try something else (i.e. lamp) in the outlet #2 Try your PC's power cord in your monitor

Screen Goes Blank


Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

Blank monitor


Luckily I'm not in it for the money so here's your answer. (Sorry drumbanger.)
When it goes black, look at your power button. Is it still green? If so, the backlight display is bad. If the power light has turned orange, you're most likely looking at a power/inverter problem. Sadly, if you don't have another monitor that you can swap parts out with, you're looking at a new monitor. But with the economy on the downslide, replacements keep getting cheaper! Research online and you'll find some fantastic deals! Rate me if you find this helpful.

Just got off the phone with Acer Suppport. This was after I sent an email to them, that suggested that I call. 8-/ annoying. So the guy on the phone says there is one thing that we can do before sending it in. Unplug it completely for the wall and computer. Hold the on/off button in for 30 secs. reconnect power and the computer. It worked for me

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


The power -inverter board probably needs an overhaul.
I redo many of these.
If the screen was pinkish or flickering before it finally got to this point, it is possible that a bulb has gone bad.
