Question about Acer AL1711 17" LCD Monitor
I searched for this problem on FixYa and I only found troubles with the backlight or the inverter causing a dark screen showing a faint display. My problem is completely different.
I have a al1711 which shows a totally white screen. The monitor reacts on the energy saver and turns off when Windows tells it to do so.
When I press on the "auto" button on the front of the screen, no display is showing "Auto confi please wait". Pressing the menu also doesn't give any result.
I hope you can give me a solution to save this monitor.
These are pretty old now but I'll respond anyhow-
When there is absolutely no screen content and white, it means that ALL pixels are turned off; black, means all are turned on. If you have a white screen, it means that a component in the video stream has failed; a black screen (preferable failure!) often means that the backlight lamp or its inverter have failed. The latter is a potential DIY fix, a dead IC in the video path normally not since most of the signal chips (ICs) are placed and soldered by robots and the pin spacing on those is pretty much beyond the capabilites of an untrained hand.
The only exception I can think of is if the ICs no longer have voltage supplied to them from the main power supply but you would need at least a cheap multimeter to locate that.
