Question about Acer AL1912 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Acer AL1912 sometimes doesnt start

Sometimes I start my computer, the light on the monitor turns green - the logo appears - after that it shows 'no signal' and the light turns into standby orange, the computer running.

In this stage pressing the restart button of the PC doesnt help, I have to switch power off and try again, sometimes that gives troubles to the PC but mostly then the monitor works again, sometimes I have to try it 2 or 3 times.

What could be the problem???

    I have an Acer AL1912 that wont start up. After switch on, following the "Acer" logo the screen goes black but the power light stays green. I can start the monitor by removing the VGA lead where I get "No signal" message. When I reconnect the VGA lead the monitor screen powers up. Sometimes the picture is mis synced. i.e. I get one and a half images of the same page. If I go thro my start up cycle again, the monitor comes up OK.

Try reseating your cable connections. While you have them off, take some compressed air and clean both the connection ports on the back of the computer and cable connections. Check to make sure there are no bent pins on the cable connectors. If you know how, you might also want to open your computer case and reseat your video card and clean your system out with the compressed air. Make sure your computer is completely shut down properly and is unplugged from the outlet when you do this and before you work inside the case make sure you touch the metal side to discharge any built up static electricity you may have so that it does not cause damage to the sensitive components inside your system. If possible you might want to take the monitor and connect it to another computer system, if it works properly on that system, more than likely it might be your video card. Hope this helps

Sounds like the monitor is dying, if it starts to die more and more often you will likely have to replace your monitor before it goes completely out. There are not many ways for a user to repair a monitor, unless the problem is with the computer, which you could test by connecting a different monitor to the computer for a while (if available). Hope this helps!

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Most likely caused by defective capacitors in the power supply. This is quite a common problem.
If you have some electronics skills, you may be able to change them yourself - look for bloated, otherwise deformed or leaking capacitors, typically in the 470u - 1000u / 25V range. Replace them with 105°C rated low ESR types of the same value and voltage rating.
If you don't know what I am talking about, bring it in for repair (if it's still worth it...).

Acer AL 1912 (black) resolution issue


[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.
