Question about Acer AL1714 17" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Acer Al 1714. LED light is blinking (orange not green).Monitor black.

Hi there.Before I subscribe my problem, sorry for my bad english, but I'll give my best.

I have an Acer AL 1714 for about 2 years now. Last days something strange happened. I just switched on my powerbar and my computer started already. But the screen of my LCD didn't. It still was black and the LED light blinked fast in an orange colour.. the big thing, between the cable from the computer, and the cable to the monitor, i think it is called transistor? its' LED light is blinking too in green. When I take off the cable from the monitor, the transistor stops blinking and it lights without a break. But when i connect the cable again to the monitor, it starts blinking again.. cant help myself :(

Thanks and I'm looking forward to reading some answers maybe..

You need a new power adapter, most likely.

ACER AL 1717 monitor.The on/off button is flashing green and orange, but the monitor is not turning on. I have checked all the connections.It blinks even if the connection from CPU is not given to it.


It sounds like you have a bad capacitor on your power circuit board located inside the monitor.If you take the cover off the monitor,you will see a circuit board where the power cord plugs in.On the board,look for 1 or 2 capacitors that are swollen or opening at their tops.They will usually be black in color with silver on top and round in shape.If you see any bad ones and have a solder iron and solder removal hardware,you can easily replace the capacitor(s) yourself,which you will find replacements at Radio shack or your nearest electronics repair shop.......good luck :)

When I plug in the Acer monitor, it does not turn on. The LED light (that indicate whether the monitor is on (green) of off(orange)) just blinks. There is also a very faint 'clicking' sound.


in most cases the fault is not the monitor its the computer in some cases its due to dirty ram slots (clean them reinsert ram) in the worst case its your cpu

check your computer with another monitor then confirm its the pc have it looked at

I have an Acer AL 1914 Monitor. Green light


Check power supply section for bad caps first.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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/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.

My dell monitor turns on for 2 seconds then goes black and the green light blinks orange


I assume that you already try this monitor on another PC to verify that the problem is in the monitor, in this case you need to open it up and inspect the fuse, transitors, solder connections on the power/inverter board, see failed Dell monitors here for guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

AOC color monitor model 5En...during power on all led lights blinks then stops blinking without display action. all led lights on no more action observed.


actually if u repair an aoc monitor alone without getting connected to cpu once u switch on the monitor all led's will lit on ( green light ) it will remain on situation until u connect the vga connector to cpu that's the time led's will lit off and only the power led will remain in green condition.some aoc 5en once u power on power led is in green condition and if not connected to cpu it will be in orange condition.hope u get some idea but i am not sure if it will work with ur monitor. but as long as LEDs lit on i think no problem with ur monitor.

Monitor Acer Al 1914, no signal


Check your connections to the PC. Make sure that they are nice and secure. If there is a resolution problem setting it should display the boot process and then go blank after starting the operating system.

Try booting the pc in safe mode (press f8 at startup). It may be possible that the pc is trying to send too high a resolution to the monitor...unlikely though. The symptom you describe usually indicates that the power board or the inverter board in the monitor are defective. If it does the same thing in safe mode, you have 2 options.

1. Replace the power board and inverter board (do the inverter board first.......it's the cheaper one (10-20 dollars).
2. Send the monitor back to the seller for a refund, or get a new monitor.

Sorry I couldn't give you more positive feedback. Hope this helps.

My acer monitor's power light is blinking green then orange and will not work, what is the problem


Hi,
This could indicate that there is a problem with your display card and not your monitor. Try plugging you monitor into another pc and check for the same problem.
Best wishes,
