Question about Acer AL1711 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Acer al1711 shows only a white screen

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.

    I'm having the exact same problem with the exact same screen. Brand new. Have completely pulled it apart but can't find anything out of the ordinary. I was looking for dry solder spots but found none. Not sure where to go from here.

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.

Acer AL1711 17" LCD Monitor showing white screen


Hello,

A white screen indicates the power supply board is not putting out the correct voltages to properly power the monitor, just the back light. This type of issue is caused by a failure of the filter capacitors on the power board. You can rebuild your power supply board and bring the monitor back to life by just replacing the the bad capacitors. The problem is that model the Acer AL1711 could come with 1 of 4 different power supply boards install depending and the date manufacturer and supply on hand. If you want to repair the monitor if you could open the unit and get either the model number of the power supply board or send a picture of the board to me I will be glad to help you repair the unit and get it back up and running. You can contact me to send the information at tech@ccl-la.com

Acer AL1711 monitor it almost too dark to read. have tried to adjust brightness etc. nothing seems to work. any help would be great. thanks


You probably have a back light problem. This is caused by a faulty inverter board or a faulty CCFL lamp.

It sounds like a backlight or inverter problem. You can verify this by using a bright light to shine on the screen surface. If you can see the picture (but it will be very dark) that means that the backlight which illuminates the screen from behind. You would have to replace the inverter to test it, but there is good news: These are pretty difficult to find parts for, and not an easy repair for an amateur; acer products usually have a 3 year warranty on the backlight/inverter system, so I would start there.

When you repalce the caps, they should be repalced in a set since bad caps can look normal but can have high ESR.

And yes, you can have bad lamp assembly:

Acer al1716 dont work


When the LCD monitor display flickers and or has a black screen then the fault is usually a faulty inverter or the CCFL lamp. When you look at the screen at a sharp angle and you see a dim image then it is a backlight problem and it is caused by a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp.
