Question about Acer AL2017 20" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I've just had an Acer AL2017 apart that someone left out in the rubbish, assuming that it wouldn't work, i've taken it apart and seems to be ok, nothing burned out no knocks and scrapes. Standby light is flashing green, although screen wont come on, but I assume that I have to connnect it up to an output source, or should a least the basic screen come on anway? any advice?

Please look at my pictures of failed monitors, read the guide to understand how monitors work, learn about bad caps, bad solder joints, etc.
http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/ACER%20AL2017%20Abd/
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

This model AL2017 20" Acer monitor is known for having a bad power inverter board. The capacitors go bad, which causes the backlight to completely stop working or flicker intermittently. If you feel like you are electronically and mechanically inclined the board is easily replaced. Search ebay for AL2017 Power Board -- its about 15 bucks plus shipping.

Acer AL2017 has trouble starting up.


I CAN FIX THIS or rather you can there are a total of 5 capacitors in the screen Power Board, that upon inspection the ends are bulging therefore they are bad. So do this: go to Radio Shack or similar store that sells capacitors and buy (3) 220 Microfarad capacitors Radio Shack Part Number 272-1029 and (2) 1000 Microfarad capacitors PN 272-1032. now on your board you will see the bulging capacitors just remove them and replace them with the new ones. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to the polarity, there is a negative stripe on the side of the capacitor. Make sure it goes back in the way the old one came out. Now the radio shack capacitors are 35vdc and the stock capacitors are 25vdc and the new capacitors are bigger in diameter but the difference is ok as long as the Microfarads are the same. I preformed this and my monitor works Outstandingly well with NO problems yea I’m a happy camper.

Hi
I repair monitors
Based on other models , it sounds like you are having a powerboard-inverter issue.
It just so happens that I hjust got one in that's doing that, I should know in a day or two (maybe sooner) what the whole story on this model is.
Good timing !!??

Had a Acer al2017


If your picture was okay when it was running and the screen was not pinkish then the power board inside the monitor is in need of an overhaul.
Your unplugging it and plugging it back in just did a temporary reset by discharging the capaciotrs for a bit.
It more than likely needs new capacitors installed.
I have done a few of these and do a lot of inverter power board repairs through ebay id bammbammfran
