Question about Acer X241Wsd Monitor

1 Answer

My X241w until recently required about 10 or more power ups before it would stay on without shutting itself off. As I was getting ready to replace it I tried setting the resolution to 1980x1080 in preparation for the max res. of the new monitor. The x241w wouldn't adjust. I consequently set my Acer AL2223W up as the primary monitor. After a shutdown and powerup of the whole system from the surgeprotector the problems with the x241w stopped. It is now working normally again. The way to fix an errant monitor is to show it it's replacement. This will work every time.

It may have a lot of dying caps as shown in my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/ACER%20X241W/

More damage will be done if the caps get real bad.
The size of this monitor is big but I find the picture quality is not too good.

2002 Hyundai Elantra that says my on board computer is not ready to be tested. Emission results are: readiness- fail, monitor comprehensive- not ready, monitor EVAP not ready,monitor O2 not ready.


Did you recently clear the trouble codes or disconnect the battery? Once all codes are cleared, the computer will not display systems 'ready' until they go through an evaluation cycle. Some of the systems require a certain number of drive cycles before they will display 'ready'. A drive cycle is usually starting the engine from a cold start (based on coolant temperature) and driving until certain conditions are met. I don't know what the requirements are for your car, but my 2003 pickup truck requires more than 10 drive cycles before it will make the O2 sensors and evaporative emissions 'ready'. Most states only require that a certain number of systems are showing 'ready' to pass emissions certification.

Samsung TV shutting off by itself and relays clicking


If you don't know what you're doing, don't open it up to fix it!
There are HAZARDOUS voltages on the power supply board EVEN WITH THE TV UNPLUGGED!!! The capacitors can hold a charge for several weeks!

Clicking noise can be coming from bad capacitors on the power supply board.



It's usually easier to just replace the power supply board.

My A215 wont stay powered up. It shut down and


Try running the computer on the Battery power and check if the power sustains. If not, then disconnect the power cord and remove the battery and leave it for a few hours then try turning it on.

If the problem exists then the power supply unit is required to be replaced. You may contact service center to get the power supply unit replaced.

Emachines , shutting off on it's own?


While it is possible the power supply could be going bad, usually it would not work intermittently like this.

Most likely the motherboard is starting to go bad, I would do a quick visual inspection for any buldging or leaking capacitors, if you see any that is definatly what is causing the problem.

If you dont see any damage to the motherboard you can try replacing the power supply, if it still behaves this way then your motherboard is the problem (sometimes there are no visible signs of damage on e-machine motherboards even when they have completly fried)

Hope this helps :)
