I have the same model monitor that I think had the same problem. What may have happened here is a part inside the monitor is broken. If so, you need to send the monitor in for warrantee service, or failing that buy a new monitor or replace the LCD inverter module on the monitor.

Technically what happened to me when I had the issue was this: a set of powerful lights behind the LCD shine through it, allowing you to see the image. These must be driven by several inverters (called ballasts on your typical fluorescent-type light fixture). If the inverters fail (which is what happened in my case), no image. You can call acer and have one of their suppliers send you out a new inverter circuit for $80. The install is quick enough and it'll solve your problem. Or just buy a new monitor.

My monitor screen is black and the yellow standby light is blinking. I can not get the light to stop blinking or get the monitor to show anything, but a black screen. What can I do to coerrect the problem?


mcdevito75 here, Press the SHIFT key, a screen should come up telling you too click on your user name, left lower side of screen. If this doesn"t work, press the yellow blinking light on the monitor see if picture comes back, then follow the directions. If this doesn"t work, shut computer down with switch on the computer itself. Hope this helps.

I CANT GET MY MONITOR TO TURN ON


It could be the Monitor, the VGA adapter, or the PC itself. If you power on the monitor without anything connected to it, do you ever see anything on the display?

If not, it is probably the Monitor. If yes, it is likely the vga adapter and/or PC.

Monitor : no display and blue led light is blinking


The power supply is the first thing that the 110v electric line goes into. The invertor is the next item past the power supply, or sometimes contained within it. I do not thing monitors are a DIY repair.      First substitute a different monitor to confirm that it is, in deed , the monitor and not the video card.

When it's turned on, the light on my monitor blinks but the screen doesn't display anything. Why might this be happening, and how can I fix it? Monitor will go on for a split second, then screen will go...


they normally turn off like this when they aren't receiving a video signal from the pc (same as when you turn off the pc). make sure that it is connected properly, and that the video output is activated. try disconnecting from the other monitor while its on and connect the problem monitor...if it still isn't working then there may be a problem with the cable or the monitor itself. Try another VGA or DVI cable. Hope this helps

HD19A / 19-Inch light flickers but no display


One of 2 possibilities come to mind. 

 

1,  The vga chord is loose on the back of the monitor.

2, Your resolution is set too high or low to be displayed.

 

The blinking light means that the monitor is either not getting or understanding a signal.

 

Hope this helps.
