Hi, I purchased an Acer 15" flat screen monitor last September for my daughter's pc. She was very ill at the time and we just now got it out of the box and the power supply isn't working (my guy checked out it's conductivity). The modle is SAA-0601L-12.. I've been failing to find a replacement, is there any hope?

I suspect the power supply problem, that will be the first place to look. Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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/albums/yy352/budm/ Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
This display uses a capacitive touchscreen. It relies on the conductivity of your finder work. It may be that it has lost sensitivity and only works when there is a path to ground through your body. If this is the case then the touchscreen will need replacing.
sbra454016, Monitor has internal problem on "switch-mode-power-supply/ccfl inverter supply" printed circuit board. Check smps/ccfl supply board. Read my fixya profile to understand problem or skip the reading and trade-in for new wide screen unit. Reading is free. 12fixlouie
It sounds like there's a problem with the monitor itself. It may be that the lamp in the computer is dying, which would explain why it keeps going out. Other possibility is that the monitor isn't receiving power properly either through the cable or inside the monitor itself.
If your're not the kind of person who wouldn't mind opening the monitor up and hopping in there, then I recommend you take it somewhere it can be diagnosed like Best Buy.
YOU HAVE TO LOOK INSIDE , check the PC BOARD , look for some kind of burn in the solder points around where a small transformer is , re solder anything that looks suspicious , try again , hope this helps AJ
Sorry not a solution - but I have started experiencing the exact same problem over the last month although sometimes, on switching on again, it will run for 10-15 minutes before the problem re-emerges. Initially I put it down to the v. hot weather in July but it still continues.
So I would also appreciate any solutions!
