Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have an Acer H223HQ monitor. When I turn the computer on, the tower itself appears to be running fine, but my monitor switches on for a few secs, showing the acer logo & then goes black. The light on the power on button, turns from green to amber.

Hello mat78, Unfortunatelly the problem is hardware based. You will need to have the monitor repaired in a service center. Here's why: LCD/TFT monitors don't produce light themselves. They are composed by a matrix of transistors (TFT - thin film transistor) that have the property to reflect or allow some light (certain wavelenghts)to pass through them. They don't produce light by themselves. Instead there is a fluorescent tube (neon like) light inside the monitor and that's the light source used in order for you to see what's on the screen. A flourescent light is suposed to last pretty much, i don't think yours has a problem, you say it works for some seconds or so. Instead your problem is most probable with the inverter circuitry that powers on that light. It's a common problem among these types of monitors but in your situation i don't think it will be an expensive repair. In the case that the screen is dark (in a dark place you can't read or view anything on it) but if you apply light to it ( a flashlight or something) and you see something, then the problem is most likely to have occured with the invertor. Try to ask at a local service center for a repair, this shouldn't be an expensive procedure. Hope this helps.

Monitor just turns itself off after 2 sec.


disconnect all the cables except the power cable and then turn the monitor on you would see a test screen if it still happens your monitor is faulty and better buy a new one as repairing is usually expensive .

Acer AL1711 LCD Monitor goes repeatedly black after bootup after just a few secs picture and has to be turned on & off at least 6 times thereafter with picture staying only 2 secs each time until...


cpburn, It's BROKEN!!! SHUT IT OFF AND LEAVE IT OFF!!! The "switch-mode-power-supply" has DETECTED a fault and then goes into full or partial SHUTDOWN to save itself from a catastrophic, nonrecoverable failure. eg. sparks, smoke, fire. The good news is you stated "picture staying only 2secs" !!! It can be fixed! Just how you do it is the question only you can answer. If you know how to replace components on a circuit board (unsolder&solder) you might do it for less than $12 in parts. To understand exactly what is involved I suggest a visit to www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm run by another guy on fixya with nickname "buddymc"! He's GOOD! If "do it yourself" is not your thing, then here are your options: Acer refurb swapout. ??? Contract to local TV/Monitor shop.?? Contract to a distant Repair shop.??? But before doing any of the above try YOUTUBE and search out and view some of the longer (6-12min) vid clips of "LCD monitor disassembly""Lcd monitor repair". If you require further assistance I can be accessed through [removed by staff] or on fixya. I'm 12fixlouie If this response was of some help please rate on fixya. Bye fo now.

Monitor or pcu problem


It appears that your graphics card is defective. If the monitor works on your laptop and reinserting the graphics card did not help, I would suspect the card itself.
