Question about Acer AC 713 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Flashing monitor hi all, i have an ACER AC713 (17") monitor which has been functioning satisfactorily for the last 3 years. but today when i switched on the PC, the monitor started flashing the images with time period of 1-2 s. i then removed the two speakers which were kept near it. although the flashing continued for some more time, the picture eventually stabilised after about 20 minutes or so. my ram had gone bad yesterday and had to replace it. so im woried whether the present problem is also related to some circuitry or power module. kindly advise.

The ram itself is not related to your problem, but check the VGA lead connections at both ends and see if the connection is loose and also check the power cable. Other than that it may be the monitor circuitry or CRT itself thats the problem and after warming up the problem goes away, so a repair may be needed or a replacement monitor.

Acer monitor will not start, power button flashes

hi Samuel.
this is all i could find from the internet.
You can try a power reset to see if that helps. To do a power reset, unplug the power cable and press and hold the power key for 10 seconds. Then, release the power key and plug the monitor in and attempt to use it. If you are still unable to get a proper display, We would suggest contacting technical support to inquire about warranty repair options. Many of our monitors carry a 3 year warranty, so there is a chance you may still have warranty left.

Faulty monitor after one year

Hi Shirley,

In Singapore, Acer monitor is 3 years warranty.

If the your monitor is out-of-warranty, please consider replacing. It is cheaper than repair.

Performance life is normally around 2.5 yrs ++. Normal faults is due to manufacturing defects.
