Question about Acer AL2216W LCD Monitor

Open Question

Overscan from my PS3 to my Monitor.

I've hooked up my PS3 to my monitor via HDMI to DVI. It worked but I have this huge overscan on the right side of the screen. I can't change the H.Position or the V.Position from the monitor. Please help, thank you.

    I have the same problem, just a different model. I own the P201W and it does the same thing.

SOURCE: No HDMI Signal from my PS3 and it works on other monitors. Help?

I'm guessing it's the PS3.

When you turn on the PS3, HOLD down your finger on the power button (the one that turns it on/off, NOT the switch in the back) until you hear a second beep while the console is turning on.

It will completely reset your display settings. I have an HDTV and a HDMI, and whenever I switch from one to the other I HAVE to do this or I get no video on screen.

Not Good..
After you've checked that the video cable is connected properly, make sure that all the pins in the video cable plugs are straight and not broken off. Then test on another PC. Make sure your CMOS battery has not gone flat, as some PC's will fail to load basic drivers if CMOS memory is lost. The battery should show no less than 2.5v, if it's marked 3 volts when tested on a multimeter. If you can't test it, just buy a new one at the supermarket or hardware, usually around $4.00.
Next thing to try is your Video Card . If it is an on board one like most are now, there isn't anything you can do but try another card in an expansion slot or fit a new motherboard. At this point, I'm sad to say, you're better taking it to a PC shop where they will have a few things at their disposal to try.

You may have problem in the logic board, it uses surface monted components no much chance for DIY repair.
Service manual; http://elektrotanya.com/?q=showresult&megnev=Acer&megnev2=AL2216W&kategoria=monitor&kat2=all

The cases these days are hard to open, they use plastic finger hooks types, they go in easy but real hard to remove without damageing them.
Use thin flat blade to crack open at the bottom edge so the scratches will not be so noticeable, and work your way around, look out for cables attached to the front bezel also.

The "Best Solution" fixes a problem that is unrelated to the original poster. anononline19's solution is to fix the entire OSD being locked (displays OSD Locked when the menu button is pressed).

Original poster's problem can be fixed by changing your graphics card's "overscan" settings.

Overscan on ATI cards:

Overscan on nVidia cards is currently not supported.

"out of range" when connecting ps3 -> benq t221w


It display out off range because the PS3 is feeding the monitor with higher resolution that the monitor cannot suppoert, try setting the PS3 to the lowest resolution first and go up from there.

My monitor says cable not connected


If it like my monitor, same hookups as yours, then when you want to use the hdmi port you need to disconnect the dvi cable. The monitor cannot read from hdmi & dvi when both are connected, Try this & see if your PS3 works. Good luck
