Acer AL1912 -- missing capacitors & parts list

Hey Mark

I saw your information on the Acer Al1912 19" LCD :: I have mine open and am looking over the boards for what can be wrong with it.  It powers on briefly but then shuts down again.  I've had similar problems with Olevia's and learned that it was caused by deficient power capacitors.  Upon opening this one up (thanks to your information) I noticed a great total 4 missing capacitors.  Now I was wondering if this was just a common production method (e.g. ACER has the same board but uses it in all of its televisions, but each board is stuffed differently) or if I have found my problem..
What do you think?  Your assistance is most appreciated. 

P S if this is my problem, who do i seek out for my parts list / schematics?

I don't normally respond to any questions on here anymore so forgive the delays in response.
The missing capacitiors are due to the board being made for a series of monitors using different power settings and having other things added to the mix like sound amplifiers etc (yes they live on the power board) so not all component holes will be filled unless the board is from a fully optioned model.

The fault you will be looking at can vary depending on the board manufacturer. If you can email a photo of both sides of the power board I will highlight the areas you will need to check.

SOURCE: Acer schematics / parts lists - my PCBs are missing capacitors!

It is common to have a lot of missing caps. in all types of boards
they may leave out a chip and not need them
or find that the put too much load on the wiring .
a cap is just a small battery and filter for a part of the circut that draws more than the wiring supports, and lets the chips do burst speed without waiting for the power to rise.
if you have a power on off cycle look for heat rise in transistors.
but usually its a cap overloading.
not easy to trace. also look for bulging caps on the top of them.

My monitor not start up .how to fix it that problem


Please read below and look at the pictures of failed ACER before DIY repair.
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.

Hello,

I would check the capacitors on the power supply board first. This is the most common problem with LCD monitor after a year or two of service. Open the back and look for bulging capacitors, replace any that you find and you should be back going again. Check our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/capacitors.htm for pictures and information about this common problem. If you need to get parts or have over questions let us know at tech@ccl-la.com.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Been there, done that. The power LED cycling indicates that the switchmode PSU is shutting down and trying to restart over. Standard symptom, let me guess the bulging cap is on the top row. Replace it with a same value/voltage (1000uF/10V from memory) low ESR 105C type and you'll be back in business.

It might be worth a try but the two different sizes could have differing resolutions and if they do, the boards are not likely interchangeable.

Acer AL1912 19" LCD Monitor goes black after power up.


The problem with this monitor is a leaking capacitor on the power supply board. It is the middle one at the top in a row of three. The value is 10V 1000uf. Common problem for these.
Remove 4 screws from back of display. The case can be popped apart with a small flat putty knife at different points along the two seams. Three latches on each side and two at top and bottom. Push and twist at the latch points. There is a metal cover over the two boards. Power supply board to left. Screws and plugs can be romved. Unsolder Capacitor and replace. Radio Shack probably has them. Maybe a couple bucks. Be sure the power has been off for a while. These also have problems with the button board and corrosion at ribbon cable.
