Question about Acer Televison & Video

Open Question

I have an Acer LCD TV AT 2246.

Today, when I turned it on, the Acer logo appeared and then the screen went all black with the exception of the name of a channel in the right upper corner which doesn't go away. Then I tried the menu key on the remote control (thinking that, as usual, it had lost all the channels) but nothing happened: no key on the remote control or on the side of the screen works, neither the one to turn it off! (I had to unplugged it to turn it off!) Any idea of what could it be?

You should try and download the users manual if you do not have one...I remeber seeing in it that after hooking every thing up, you have to do the channel search twice before the unit will work properly..This is highlited in the manual with correct hookup diagrahm..

SOURCE: iLO LCD Color HDTV does not change channels / volumn...just turns on/off

I recently bought an ILO 32 HDTV with the same problem. I searched every site I could find for a solution. I finally found someone that gave me the direction to replace the Main Board for the TV. This is the board that you can plug your exteranl devices into, computer, dvd, HDMI etc.

The phone # to Digital Age is 909-974-2859. These are the people who can send you the part you need. Also the remote that I have is RC-500, which is the newest remote control for the new Main Board. I would suggest getting this remote.

The price of the board was $123.89 with $10.00 shipping. It only took 4 days to get the board from Ontario California, and yes they do speak english.

I removed the backpanel myself and then removed the metal cover over the Main Board. Remember to mark all of your wires and screws so you can put them back in the same location. The connections are all quick disconnects and the board is one piece. I had the board replaced and the back panel back on within an hour. All buttons working on the TV and the remote control, and the TV is working great with sound.

But I do not have the Manual......does anyone have the manual? I am willing to help anyone with a fix for their TV for a copy of the TV Manual.

I hope the information I have given helps in anyway possible,

Johnny

SOURCE: (Built in) TV GUIDE Screen is black except for small channel preview window on top-left.

After purchasing a "service remote" and then buying a new "Main Board-Analog" which didn't fix the problem, I spoke with tech support who then emailed me an "EPK" file. Basically the computer board inside the television needed to be updated since this whole digital conversion is happening.. However this incident has given me tremendous knowledge of what to do and how to troubleshoot and how to reset my own TV with all the hidden menus that you never knew you had. Don't be tricked into buying a mainboard or even paying a diagnostic fee. If your TV GUIDE screen goes blank and all you see is a small channel preview screen in the top left corner, chances are all you need is the EPK file update. I received the update file in my email, I downloaded it to an SD card, inserted the SD card into my 32LX1D LG LCD TV and it did the rest. It was too easy. Most newer LG TV's are coming with a "SERVICE USB" so you can attach a "jumpdrive" or some other storage to it. These so called "Authorized Service Centers" are a hoax. WHen you bring your TV into them they charge you a "diagnostic fee" ranging from $50-$150 just to diagnose it, then they tell you that that can also be applied to the cost of the repair. All the service center does is call a special priviledged tech support 800# for LG to find out what to do. I've replaced and removed my own Main board. You gotta learn the game people, its all a big game to keep the revenue coming long after the sale of the TV. Which is why nowadays automobiles are manufactured with parts that were made to break intentionally to keep bringing you back.

Follow up on No DTV tuner after unplugging it a month for vacation. After I let it set plugged in for about 2-3 days it started working normally again and has been fine ever since. I hope this may help someone else. Genez 6-7-09

Vizio VO47L FHDTV10A black screen no light


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
?
?Check the cables, connectors and connections.

Take it to a repair shop.

Acer Aspire 5610. LCD very dim all of a sudden.


That sounds just like an inverter problems. There is a slim chance the bulb could be a problem, but I would replace the inverter. It is not too hard to do, no soldering involved.

You have to remove the screw covers on the frame of the LCD frame, and then carefully pop off the frame. The inverter should be on the bottom center of the screen.

Be careful, there is a high voltage in that little baby. Just get the full numbers, and do a search on the internet and buy yourself a new inverter to replace the old one.

Green, I spent some time today with a sony tech rep on line. We went thru the motions of battery, memory card and still no help. So I'm sending my camera back to sony for repair. Mine is still under warranty. Hopefully yours is too. Good Luck. Mike aka m1stones1
