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.

Some keys not working, makes a high pitch noise when switched on


The high pitch sound may be the power supply adapter, unplug let it run on battery, if sound goes away change the power supply, the laptop keyboard will need to be replaced, go to www.ebay.com Type make and model of laptop, refine search to keyboard and power supply if needed.

Laptop screen block


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.
