2 years old may be due for bad DC filter caps inspection which is very common failure on LCD TV's and monitors.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, 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 ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

There is a chance of the LCD going bad.. If you have any external monitor try to swap the display on a external monitor.. If it woks well then the LCD has gone bad... If it doest work on that as well there might be more parts that have gone bad.. Contact the computer manufacture to get it fixed...

Acerx193hq monitor keeps turning off only just started doing it purchased march 2009 have to press menu on monitor comes on then goes off again


Hi

Capacitors going bad are causing this problem. Call Acer and let them know. It may still be in warranty, if not it should certainly qualify. Parts age in everything electronic but LCD monitors should have at least 2 years of use before parts begin to change value.

Thanks

My new Acer P191W LCD Monitor has a high pitched whine that is extra loud on pages with rich and dark colors.


The PSU "power supply unit is taken on a lot of noise from the outlet. Can you tell us if you have it streight plugged into to a 120V AC outlet or is it plugged into a strip? The Solution for both is NEW strip i recommend APC or plug it into a strip and check the outlet and make sure its properly grounded this should shore up this problem or the unit itself is going out.

Acer AL1714 17" LCD Monitor Good Power supply no power on monitor


Hello, I have to same problem. I returned my monitor to Acer but got it back unrepaired, they could not see the malfunction. But I kept on sending it back, until I got a new model. Now after 2 years I get the same thing with this monitor. But there's no warranty anymore, so I looked into the problem myself. I found out that inside the powercircuit board is connected to the mainboard through a 10pin connector. The 5 pins that are on the lowest row, show a trace of white powder, I suppose occidation. I sprayed a little of contactspray in it. I must say the problem is not gone, but much better. The problem shows not so frequent anymore and lasts not so long. At first the screen switched of for 3 to 5 minutes and came back on. Now the screen is gone for perhaps 1 second and returns. So I'm almost convinced the problem has something to do with the connection of the powercircuitboard inside and the mainboard inside, when the monitor heats up a bad connection occurs due to occidation of the 10 pin connector. If you find a solution that fixes the problem 100% let me know, please. Mario.

Monitor will not power up


Hi tafkab, Sounds like it's probably the backlight inverter board. Try the test I have at the bottom to see. It's a very common problem. LCD's use four small Cold Compact Fluorescent bulbs to back light the display. (thats what gives the LCD it's brightness allowing you to see it) The inverter board runs these lights and when they go bad they will typically show symptoms like you have or the monitor power light comes on and you have either no display or a very dim display. If you ever have one that has no display but the power light is on you can check by shining a flashlight directly into the LCD from the front (right into the screen) if you can see an image then it's either the inverter board (most likely) or the CCFL bulbs have gone bad. The inverter board and CCFL's are replaceable. Good Luck, Dude
