When the bad caps (not completely gone but have high ESR) will start working when heated up, the ESR goes down, that is one of the trick I have been using for 30 years to locate bad caps by heting them with hair dryer.
I am surprised that 3 shops cannot find and fix the problem.
As you can see in my albums, most failure are due to bad caps. Can you poat the pictures of the board?

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please leave rating if it helps.

Hi Richard,

This may only end up as one step in several of trobleshooting, but it's worth it for you to take this approach. Disconnect the monit(or and take it to a neaby friend's house (wo serves good cocktails) and connect the monitor to his/her conputer. Ids the same symptons present themselves in in a few minutes, you've unquestionably narrowed the problem to the monitor, and it means it has elements inside that have worn to the degree that a new monitor is advisable.

If your monitor performs just fine and at some appreciable length of time that this seems the inescaple conclusion, you immediately know that your computer is heating up at the video/processor area and shutting off all video presentation in order to reduce heat and save the mainboard/motherboard from a meltdown of the tiny circuits in that area using the inbuilt heat sensor and auro-shutdown feature it contains.

I apologize for your issue not being addressed sooner. The techs here realized that there's no instant gratification in a "solution" like I've written, so they moved on.

Therefore, please refrain from giving me 2 thumbs up while you go and carefully get this figured out. 2 thumbs reduces my rating percentage for telling you the exact way to find out about your problem for free. I prefer you leave no feedback until you do so.

Kind Regards,

The picture comes on for 15 seconds and igoes off

It sounds like a thermal problem ie its heat related. As the unit warms up the problem gets worse and worse.
The most common problem is a bad solder joint in the electronics circuit which drives your screen. When current flows thru the solder joint it heats up and expands, making the poor solder connection even worse. ie the solder gap gets bigger as it expands.
An experienced repairer will use something like an pressurized can of freon (or a similar product) which is used to spray on suspect solder joints until the problem disappears. That soldered joint is then re-done.
NOTE: working on live equipment should be left to an expert. If you aren't trained, don't do it!
With the cheap price of monitors these days it may be cheaper to buy another. Compare the repair price to your loss of enjoyment or down time of your system.
If the unit is still under warranty, call the manufacturer (is it a Dell unit?)

Hello there Jake.

Here's your geek-steer ...

  • When you say "sleep", are you certain it's sleep mode, as opposed to hibernate?
  • " won't restart immediately." ... you do mean of course AFTER you've given keyboard or mouse input, right?
  • "...the screen begins to flash the display" ... literally flash, as in strobe? Or do you just mean flash, as in "shows".
  • "...Sometimes the whole process takes five minutes, sometimes an hour." ... ???!!! If it takes anything longer than few/several moments, that's very abnormal, even if hibernate mode.
  • "...I can't find the documentation." ... not important, at least not at this point.


1. Shutdown
2. Turn off PC and monitor
3. wait 5 minutes
4. unplug all cables/cords connected to monitor (both ends)
5. inspect/clean connect points
6. reconnect all cables/cords
7. plug monitor back in
8. startup system
9. try to duplicate problem


I'm curious to know what all your "Processes" are doing during this very delayed period of time. By knowing that, you can see which one(s) are running, and which of them are probably crunching hard at the CPU, which MAY explain the delay (I don't know about an hour, but minutes ... yes).

Do you have a "Processes" monitor utility of any kind? If not, get SysInternals' "Process Explorer" (no installation required, just unpack and launch). Make sure at least the "CPU History" item is included in the column header (View > Select Columns). Once launched, allow it to sleep.

Just as soon as able, after it comes out of sleep, review Process Explorer. What, if any, processes are hogging CPU? Post that back, and I suspect we may be a lot closer to a solution.


You might also hook up this monitor to a "known good" (functioning properly) PC with like "screen saver" and "power options" settings. If problem not encountered, you can at least isolate the problem to solely the monitor. However, if the only time you encounter problem with monitor is isolated to when coming out of sleep, this is likely a long-shot.

Good luck Jake, and please do post back ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback.
  • if you have any further questions,

Acer AL1917 Monitor does not start up immediately.

You'll need to have your power board -inverter redone.
The capacitors are starting to fail and that eventually will stop it all together.
I repair many monitors through ebay with these types of problems.
If you take it apart and send me a picture, I can usually see the problem areas.
