Acer tft AL 1711 doesn't stay on...

It takes many times switching on this monitor until it stays on. As soon as is turned on, it stays on for hours. What do you think is the problem?

    I think I did send a post saying that I resolved the issue by accident... I pressed the Menu button and played with the functions, while it was connected with my laptop. Finally I pressed for Reset and I did Auto Config as well. The screen hasn't played up since. Turns on first time I press the "On" button. The only problem is that I kept it plugged on my laptop and every now and then the laptop sreen was black or grey. The issue was resolved by unplugging the screen when not needed and plugged when needed with a restart of the laptop in order to find the new monitor... I only need the extra monitor twice a week and this is a small inconvenience... Somebody explained to me that because the laptop is of a different resolution, it tries to get even with the extra monitor and blacks out. Another solution to this problem would be to have both laptop and monitor on at all times, but as I said I need it only twice a week. It was a very good bargain as we bought it for £15!!!

Has your problem remained stable since you posted this in June or is it now completely dead?

    That was a bargain; did the guy have any other stolen goods for sale?? ;-)


    You might check eBay (or other cheap source) for a two-port video transfer switch; I used one in my service shop years ago (somewhere in a box now) and it saved a lot of wear and tear on connectors and at that time was about $20 US.  
    You can just leave it connected to both unless you are actually dragging your bargain around with you.

Sounds like bad caps in the power supply. C6 & c22 often need replacing. Check also R1, 10 ohns.

Acer monitor only display for about 3 to 4 second


Sounds like a busted syncing circuit, probably due to a condenser. It takes about that time to heat or overcharge, at which point a safety feature will turn off the display.

You just MIGHT get some more life hours out of the monitor by tuning it to a lower resolution, but it will buy you a month even in the best hypothesis.

I'm afraid the monitor is in for a repair/replacement.

Dell monitor will come on but will not stay on. stays on 5sec


5 seconds? Hmm, too long for inverter driver turning into protection caused by bad lamps. Also too long for PWM controller in the switching power supply.
Rather looks like overheating of the FETs in the inverter, they are driving HV-transformers. Open the monitor, remove metal lid and observe inverter board. If PCB under and around these FETs is darkened, replace them.
These Dells hard to open. Take the foot off and unscrew plastic cover. Then using flat screwdriver with wide blade separate plastic halves of the case, starting from bottom edge and moving to opposite. It might be sweaty.

Hello

You have capacitors on the monitors power supply that have changed value. Soon they will keep the monitor from turning on at all. Send it to a company like mine or take it to a local repair person.
