Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screaming acer! Every time I turn on my LCD AL1916W it makes a very high pitch sound. Also when I turn on a game on my PC and the screen adapts to the demand but it then makes the high pitch scream again. Other then the (bothering) sounds the LCD makes, the screen is great! Is this normal? The screen is under warranty so I can have it checked, but I want to know whether it's something this screen just has or if it truly is just mine. Thank you.

Sometimes if the inverter board (the part that drives the backlight) has a cold solder joint on it, it can actually generate a high pitched resonating sound (aka a screaming squeal sound)

if it's under warranty, have the manufacturer correct the problem.

if not under warranty, retouch the solder points on the inverter board, or have a repair tech fix it for you.

Make sure the power led/light is on and power is going to the monitor. If so, try monitor on a different PC or Laptop to confirm that the video adapter is working in the computer. If power light is on and there is no display from either computer/laptop source, the LCD backlight is bad and will have to be sent to Acer for repair/replacement if under warranty.

Hello,

Yes, The inverter is the problem on your monitor. We have a step by step guide to dis-assemble and repair your monitor posted on our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com/monitor_repair.htm Your model is the same as the westinghouse L1875NW. We have a parts kit for $12.00 if you need it, it can be purchased on the guide page. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we can do it for $35 + shipping. This is a common problem with that series of monitors but the repair will get you back going.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

ACER LCD monitor no image, appears white color only


Quickly go to the Acer website and check FAQ's and while there also find out how to get an RMA to return it. My guess is you have a bad monitor. At $200 roughly for a replacement I would hustle. I am assuming you got nothing but a white screen but did get video on your TV.

Monitor acer al1916w


Hm. Well, it might not be the monitor issue. What is your computer model? Are you using a regular PC, laptop (is it wide screen or standard?..in other words is it a square or rectangle..?), MAC, etc? Secondly, what is the resolution of your monitor? I believe this must be a card issue in your computer. Have someone check out your graphic card to make sure its compatible with your game. Some times the resolution can cause issues on computers. My husband has ran into that with a few of his games. He could simply go internally on the computer options to change the resolution on the graphic card in order to play the game. It wouldnt look as awesome as it really should, but this should help you out. Good luck. Let me know if you're still having problems. Cheers!

Input not supported when trying to play a game


the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
