Acer LCD Monitor - Stuck Displaying green

Hi, when I returned home from work the other day I found that my Acer LCD Monitorwill now only display the word "acer" in green when powered on.Normally it would display this logo for a few seconds, then move to "NoSignal" until I powered on my computer (I was told to always power on the monitor first then the computer). Next, it would display the image from the computer as it should and function perfectly.

However, it will now only display this green acer logo and never go beyond this point, whether it is or is not connected to a computer (using either vga or dvi connection)and whether the computer is turned on or turned off. It simply displaysthe logo then does not attempt to receive a signal from it's connectedcomputer.

Could this be a result of a power outage at my house while I was at work? What can I do to make my monitor function again?

Cant say for sure. The display seems to be working, and the computer signal seems to be the problem. It could be a faulty cable. Check the pins on the cable monitor and see if they are bent, etc.
If the connectors are Ok, it could be the converter or the main board that has the fault. This could be caused by a power surge, or just a mechanical failure.
There is no easy diagnosis for this\ one, without actually checking the parts. I would recommend taking it to a repair place.

No display


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Monitor colors are not displaying correctly


Hi, At the worst it is a blown monitor, but have hope. 1st try a new or known good lead, between monitor and PC. 2nd put monitor with own lead on good PC. if 1st works = result. if 2nd and monitor is same, suspect monitor, however, if 2nd works ok on other PC, then look at ur vid card. Either way, this test sequence should save you some $. Be lucky.

I have 3 acer al1603w widescreen monitor.. it was working ok before, then i let my brothers used them. afterwhich it is displaying "input not supported". WHOAAA!?!!? what do i do? its bugging me for 3 days...


Sounds like somebody messed with the monitor setup on the monitor controls. Check the manual to set it up correctly. If they changed the monitor's Frequency settings, the problems you are having will occur. Gotta set them back to 70Hz and check the other settings. If you need a manual, get back to me with the exact model number of the monitor.

Acer LCD Monitor only displays "acer" logo


You are correct, it could be a power surge that has caused it.

Try this..
Unplug the monitor from the wall.
Remove all the video connections at the monitor end.
Wait 10 minutes then plug the monitor back into the wall (do not connect the video leads)

Turn it on and see if it goes past the ACER logo now. If so, replace the video cables and try the computer.
If not, then one of these will apply and a tech will be required..
  1. The internal bios has been corrupted.
  2. The power supply inside the monitor may have issues preventing the video board from starting correctly. This could be as simple as a few failing capacitors.
Number 2 is the most likely cause with an Acer monitor though. Any local tech will be able to correct it fairly cheaply, but phone around for quotes..they can vary a lot.

Monitor


hi,
Unplug the monitor from the back of your computer tower. If the LCD is not displaying any Video the monitor has gone bad. If it displays self test feature check window. It could be a graphic card driver problem.

Monitor Acer Problem


I agree it isn?t the monitor but I would suspect the video card you are connecting it to or the PC itself. Generally if a monitor doesn?t detect a video signal it will go into hibernation mode, typically displaying a no signal warning and changing the LED color from green to amber. When you start the computer is anything displaying at all? Are you sure the PC is powering up and booting?
