My Acer LED monitor is black unresponsive and has an unchanging purple power button. What is causing this and how can I fix it?

We can not answer, what you can to, lacking skills or tools.
how, (get it fixed in shop?)
NO PC stated., just the same card I have GTX , that I am using right now.... as I type. MY PC is HOME MADE, ASUS based high end.
so step one is to what.?
1: try the GN246 on a known good working PC.
if that fails what do you know, in 5min work, ?
if that fails. the monitor or cable is bad.
cable is 20 times cheaper so.... bingo?

2: or take a known good monitor and test it on your unstated PC.
ok you did this, I'm talking to you and all others like you in same pickle jar. (stumped)

2 simple tests anyone can do with other PCs at home or friends that have PCs at home. (desktops)

YOU tried a 2nd good monitor on this unstated PC and it too is dead. GOT you on that. PC dead, end story on what end is dead
say it " my PC is dead." my desk top is dead. more clear.

I found my PC is dead, here is the list. NO PC stated ever.

1: I turn it on, and THE 3 FANS BLOW, SOUND heard ,seen and felt.
I always look first, gee this one is dead,.... dang.
dead fans are #1 if dead the PC overheats fast,
some super fast. in seconds fast. some take minutes,
varies by what you own, unstated.

  • PSU fan blows
  • CPU fan blows
  • GTX1050 has fan and MUST BLOW.
this is first. does yours....? all blow?
and all 3 not packed in lint , dirty. and running hot.?

how to the GTX1050 get there? you added it like mine,?
Did you plug it in, not using PC power discharging CAPS
rules first if yes, you blew up the card, called HOT PLUGGING.
  • pull power cord from wall, only this kills power dead !!!
  • push power button, see fans turn 1 second sure, this discharges the power bus and cap.'s.(rails)
  • wait 15 minutes, then pull cables and cards, or insert them,
  • do not hot plug parts inside any PC . OK?
for sure not any GTX made, do that. !!!!

I have powerful PSU to handle fast powerful graphic cards
500 watts up. do you , if not fail you will.
NO PC stated, no PSU power rating stated,
no answer really possible beyond black screens of *****.
(or purple)
no text, the LCD would infact tell you NO Sync, no signal or going to sleep, I bet you missed that, in fact that screen tells you that
even with the Video cable unplugged, turn on monitor.
a fact,

that purple tint smacks of GTX is overloaded
on line posts on PC are 99% lies, its just folks guessing endlessly and no trouble shooting skills nor training.
if wise google only (troubleshooting PC dead black screen)

Purple is outlier, but can happen but is very rare.

I bet your PC is overheating fast or is overloaded. or bad PSU
its power issue.
A PC can fail 3 ways on power.
PSU bad.
or something shorted, in side PC that overloads that PSU
or wrong PSU used, not enough watts for your GPU.

but at turn on all GPUs use small power. so

so all I can say is do the 3 fan checks
and try a 2nd PSU. or strip the system down to min
and test the PC with minimum configuration
we call this act, , Isolation tests. (a skill set all techs know)

EG: ( the big strip down)
1: remove all HDD , DVD drives, power cables, first. and SSD if present. (yes PC Run BIOS screens with no HDD there)

2: remove all memory but 1 stick ,try all , 1 at a time.
3: make real sure GTX is in the X16 top slot !!!!
3a: all techs have a spare PCI-e low powered cheap spare GPU card in there kit (tool box) we then try this, for ending black screens.
( any old $10 card works here,no kidding, express card.)

4 : bench test the PSU?

Vertical strip of flashing horizontal lines on Acer Aspire 7551G screen

More than likely it's the lcd screen and will have to be replaced. I could be the video card, but most likely the lcd screen especially when you can put pressure on the screen and cause changes. To isolate the problem try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the laptop. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then the problem is with your lcd screen and the video card is ok. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same as your lcd screen then the problem is with your video card inside the computer.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Once you narrow it down to the lcd screen as being the problem you might try taking the lcd screen apart to reseat the lcd cable on the back at the top of the lcd. Just unplug it and plug it back into the connector. You can also try doing the same where the lcd cable plugs into the motherboard. Just pull it out and put it back.

Monitor flashes and turns off on Pavilion a1410y. Same monitor for computer, never changed. I took the monitor off and used it on another fine. I am thinking video card, is there a way...

happy new [email protected]!
power on, PSU faN RUNS, OK, cpu FAN RUNS"
My guess, screen never shows text ever.! or logo's
no screen stated, make and model.
A1410y bad. PC. for sure. no video but what ,video is never first.
you cant test MUCH lacking spares.
you did the only test, monitor is good, hope that was done moving it with this potentially bad cable, VGA?

i cant see inside your PC desk top.
2006 PC , with no onboard VGA jack.
Athlon 64 (V) 3800+ 2.4 GHz
  • Manufacturer: Asus
  • Motherboard Name: A8N-LA
  • HP/Compaq motherboard name: Nagami-GL8E
3 pci slots and 1 express x16 for video
gee is the x16 , slot with video card there. making it 2 VGA now.

the x16 slot can have just about any card there. made
but less that 75watts.
over that needs special PSU and cable betwixt them.

if the fans run, never stated by you. both fans
or 3 if the X16 slot GPU card has a fan as do all higher powered do(most)
then the PSU is dead.
we strip pcs down to find shorts, shorts happen.

see the red arrow that is Mr. VGA.
the coin cell ther too, is dead now, get rid of all RTC coin cells
now, lacking a good coin cell the BIOS goes dead. or nuts.
bottom right is coin, shinny nickle plated. cell battery

Bug in screen

It is unlikely the bug got between the inner Fresnel lens and the outer cylindrical disperser lens of this DLP as the separation is minimal and blocked off all around. Much more likely is that is inside the Fresnel lens and may be cleared off with a clean microfiber cloth through a port to be found on each side (guessing) of the set. Try not to add dust. You can also go to avsforum <> and search for Samsung HL-P6163 or similar 5-year old. -Ken

Removing a screen protector from a Hitachi 50UX58B Projection color TV

There is a black plastic strip that fits into the groove at the top of the frame holding the protector and front screen. Pull that down and out (you might need to pry a little to get it started). The attached picture shows the strip partially pulled out at the right edge (photo depicts the top right of a 58K - with a wood cabinet).ea84b4b.jpg
Once this strip is removed, you should be able to see a gap (~2mm) between the top of the protector and the frame. Pull the middle of the protector toward you (you may need to hook it with something like a chrochet hook to get it out to where you can get a finger on it). Pull out one side of the protector, then work it loose fromt he bottom. (If it is stubborn, you may have to loosen the bottom frame. Take of the speaker grill, then unscrew the screw on the bottom of the surround for the control panel and pop the surround out. Then there are 3 screws that hold the cabinet frame {might me different for the 58B} and beneath that, 3 screws that hold the bottom of the inside frame. Once those are removed, you should be able to flex the inside frame enough to loosen the protector.)

Installation is the reverse. There are two grooves (at least on my set), and the protector goes in the rear groove(!) (same as the screen itself - first time I tried to put it in the unused groove closer to the front of the screen, and that iddn't work). The black plastic retainer strip goes in the front groove.
