Question about Acer X241Wsd Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor comes up shows "acer" then says no signal and goes black

When the monitor is turned on it appears to work - the "acer" name comes up and then the words "no signal". As soon as no signal comes on the sceen it goes to black and the light turns orange. The pc has a new video card installed and tests okay on other monitors, a new cable between pc and monitor has been installed also - still no success I have had my x241w monitor for 16 months. About every week I get the 'no signal' display and need to unplug it. One day, there was no display at all. I sent it to Acer under warranty at my expense. They sent it back and said it was fine. Its still dead. I tried different cables as they suggested - still dead. It appears they never tried turning it on.

This Problem is Acer(s) Monitors. Though it is a nuisance one fix That has work for many is the Unplugging after it goes back to Good (viewable) screen.
I have hooked mine up to an inexpensive Power strip to make it easier for me and just turn off at time indicated above and Viola Simple is as Simple does :)

My acer monitor p191w will turn on acer logo comes on goes black then a screen comes out saying no signal then turns of light turns yellow ...tried restarting monitor nothing

Connect the monitor to a different computer, to see if the monitor works at all.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if your computer really is "sending" a video-signal through the "data" cable. If not, then either the data-cable or the video-card inside the computer is faulty.

When turning on my monitor the Acer name appears then disappears and a box that reads "no signal" appears. Then the screen goes blank and the blue power button turns yellow.

This means that your monitor is not receiving a signal from your computer. The easiest way to fix this is to plug the monitor into the computer. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

Acer al1922 monitor no signal:

If it does the same with other PC then you need to open it up and first thing to look for are bad caps in the power supply, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps, transistors, transformers, lamps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside, and always replace with good quality caps such as PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY.

they all come with two cables. blue being vga, white being dvi cable. you only need to plug the blue into both ends (computer and into the monitor) and turn on.
