Question about Acer AL2017 20" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Shutting off After 2-3 hours functioning, screen becomes black, the front panel led remaining green and after a few couples of ON/OFF from the power switch, the monitor SHUTS DOWN AND REMAINS SO. I have to pull the power cable and it will start again only after 15-30 minutes. It is not related to room temperature.

    I agree, the problem is that I have to wait at least 2 weeks and to pay the transport of the package Montreal-Toronto-Montreal (Acer closest repair center), though is under the warranty. It should cost me ~25 USD AND i'm not happy with that...

It may not be related to room temp, but it sure sounds like there is an internal problem relating to temp. Meaning, there is a component (probably a capacitor) getting over heated or leaking. If this is still covered under the mfg warranty, I would contact them to get it fixed. If not, then taking it to a repair facility that can repair it is probably a good idea.

    I had the same issue with BenQ. But it beat spending $100+ on a new monitor and I had my laptop as a backup. I feel your pain.

TRYING TO HOOK UP MU POWER BUTTON NEED TO KNOW


Hi there
The front panel connectors are mainly,
  • harddisk activity connector
  • power switch connector
  • reset switch connector
  • power LED connector
  • speakers connector
  • USB connector
Harddisk activity connector
This normally comes red in colour and is labeled as HDD-LED
Power switch connector
This comes green in colour and is labeled as POWER-SW
Reset switch connector
This usually comes grey in colour and is labeled as RST-SW
Power LED connector
This is usually green in colour and is labled as PWR-LED
Speakers connector
This speaker will give different beep sounds during boot to tell the user if there is any errors. It occupies 4 pins, however only 2 is important for the function. Be sure to connect the red coloured cable to the positive polarity and the black to the negative.

TV goes black, won't power off


If the power indicator remains on (or LED remains green) when the unit goes dead, you will need to replace the main board to resolve.

Flat Panel Monitor: 1907FPt


Your monitor provides a self-test feature that allows you to check whether your monitor is functioning properly. If your monitor and computer are properly connected but the monitor screen remains dark, run the monitor self-test by performing the following steps:
  1. Turn off both your computer and monitor.
  2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer. To ensure proper Self-Test operation, remove both Digital (white connector) and the Analog(blue connector) cables from the back of computer.
  3. Turn on the monitor.
    The floating 'Dell Self-test Feature Check' dialog box should appear on-screen on a black background if the monitor cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains green. Also, depending upon the selected input, one of the dialogs shown below will continuously scroll through the screen.
    1. This box also appears during normal system operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
    2. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable, then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
    If your monitor screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.
