    I have the exact same problem as teddysmom. No power, nothing, completely dead. Unfortunately the only solution was to buy a Dell!

    Same problem here....No power LED and no power to monitor. I have swapped out with another monitor so cables are not a problem. Nor is the power source....

New Monitor time I guess?Tried different cord different plug etc...

No power to acer al1716 the power light wont turn on at all no acer flashscreen


You have a common problem for monitors 2-3 years old. The internal power supply has died. If you can solder you should be able to do the repair yourself. Go to our web site at: and look at the pictures. Open your monitor up and look for parts that look like the pictures on our site, replace any you see. The values to use are located on the sides of the bad caps. Be sure to use high temp (105c) replacements, not ones from Radio Shack, they will blow out in no time because of the high in the monitors. We carry them in stock or you can order them from several places on the internet. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we can do it for you. We charge $35 + return shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Acer al1716 dont work

When the LCD monitor display flickers and or has a black screen then the fault is usually a faulty inverter or the CCFL lamp. When you look at the screen at a sharp angle and you see a dim image then it is a backlight problem and it is caused by a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp.

No power after monitor is plugged and turned on

seen this problem many times, do as above stated. Return the moniter to where you bought it, if just purchased. Contact Acer if it is still under warranty.

1. Unplug the AC power cord to make sure the power is off.
turn the monitor upside down, you need 2 people for this.
2. Pull the 4 hooks on bottom side of the base and hold.
3. Separate the monitor and base.

Acer AL1716 Power problem?

i have experienced the same problem (power cycles on and off and on and off... nothing but Acer logo and black screen) on 2 Acer model 1706 A version 1706 Ab monitors both built in July 2006. Before the customer reported the 2nd monitor with the same problem, i sent the 1st one into Acer for warranty service (after testing in on 4 machines w/4 different video cards). They shipped it back with a paper saying the monitor was repaired. I returned the monitor to the customer and it exhibited the same symptoms (aka, not repaired). Could there have been a bad batch in July 2006? When I plug a new Acer AL1716 monitor into the same computers, I have no problems at all.
