Having problems with your Acer AL1706AB LCD Monitor ?

My Acer x221w a monitor comes on for a couple of seconds and then goes blank.you can switch it off and on and it does the same,only lasts seconds. is it fixable


Answers :

Leanish, Yes, your lcd is a viable candidate for REFURBISHMENT! Only I left out the word "MAYBE". YOUR words "on for a couple seconds" is the clue that places you into the "viable" catagory! Your stated symptom is CLASSIC of many thousands of other lcd owners whose screens are now BLACK and lifeless. Now for the FIX it part. First thing to do is visit YOUTUBE! FYI to help you make a decision to do the repair yourself or contract out the work to get your x221w back ONLINE. Search and view the longer vid clips of "lcd monitor disassembly","lcd monitor repair". Learn what internal components on the "switch-mode-power-supply" and "inverter circuit" cause the CLASSIC symptom refered to as the BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH. Also research my other posts in my profile on how to do the "rude&crude" flashlight test that every lcd display owner should know how to perform and interpret when the BSOD strikes without warning. It's not hard to do and you would then have provided another 2 lines of useful information along with AGE and or approximate total "ON" hours of use the unit has seen since the purchase date. One more thing that OWNERS fail to state is if the unit "is" or "is not" under warranty by the manufacturer! Warranty work is the very first thing to check because it's FREE!!! Well, anyway, I wish you good luck in your quest to fix your unit. If you need additional info you can always do a repost to fixya, or [email protected] I'm 12fixlouie on fixya If this response was of some help then please rate it on fixya. Bye for now.
