Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I'm using the AL1916w 19" as a secondary monitor for my laptop. I went to turn it on the other morning whilst it was connected and it didn't turn on. I've tried it with other computers and it seems to acknowledge that it is connected however the screen remains completely black. Any ideas??

Look for bad caps just like other failed monitors as shown in my album first.
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 ACER 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.

The power went out twice in a one hour period a couple of days ago. After the second outage, my monitor would not come back on. Unfortunately, I had removed it from the surge protector to plug something...


1) Have you checked the fuse in the mains plug ?

2) There may also be a secondary fuse, inside the monitor (don't as me how to dismantle it, all I know is carefully) on the main cct board near to the power in socket.

My ACER AL1916 blinks several times before picture is displayed when the monitor is turned-on for the first time in the early morning and stays stable all day. I connected it using VGA cable. Any...


Usually this happens when the monitor is trying to translate the signal given off by the video card.

Nothing to worry about, simply a process that the system needs to go through.

Acer al1916w wont turn on


Hi,

My living room monitor faced the same issue before.

I called up Acer, and they fixed the power LCD board in the monitor.

Do not buy a new one yet, unless the warranty is over.
