The problem is in the power supply inverter board, caused by bad capacitors. To have it repaired by a professional will be costly and consideration should be given replacing the monitor, "average life span 3 to 5 years" in most cases.

What do I try to get 17" dell 1908pf monitor to stay on? Just goes to black screen after a couple seconds.


If it is a 1908pf, it is classed as a 19 inch monitor, not a 17 inch. Notwithstanding, the device is approximately 8 model years old, which makes it a senior citizen for computer monitors. Most likely candidate is the ballast (inverter) for the backlight system going bad, or the florescent backlight bulb itself is failing. These CAN be repaired, but as old as this unit is, you are better served buying a new one. Modern TVs/monitors can only be expected to last a little over five years anymore. The backlighting circuits are their weak points. Manufacturers are not interested in improving this, since they want you to buy a new unit every 4-5 years, rather than every 10 years as was the case in the CRT days. "Planned obsolescence", as we like to call it, is not unique to TVs either. Newer appliances (fridges/ranges/dishwashers) are all being made "better", meaning all kinds of bells and whistles, but engineered to last half as long as their predecessors. Apparently we can't have it both ways.

My Acer AL1917WAbd 19" LCD powers off ~2 second after power on.


The monitor this old I will not be surprise if you will find a lot of bad caps inside, see what goes wrong with LCD monitors here:

If you have it repaired, you will more likely to be charged $80~90, I would put that money toward a new monitor, just do not expect them to last more than 3 years on the new monitors.

Yes you can get this fixed and it is still worth it. It may cost $200 but it should last a long time.
