Having problems with your Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor ?

Acer AL1715 power issues

\015 I have an Acer AL1715 monitor. Here's my issue.\015\012When I turn on the monitor the green power light comes on and stays on, but nothing shows up on the monitor. I heard a lot of LCD monitors get blown capcitors, so I opened it up. I did not see any "pregnant" capacitors. If it is a blown capacitor, any sugestions on which one(s) it is.\015

Answers :

The problem could be a bad inverter or back light. The inverter powers the back lights. So a failure of either will keep the screen dark.
\012To test this, shine a flash light into the screen. If you can make out a dark image, then the monitor is basically working, but there is a back lighting failure. Sometimes in these cases, the back lights will go on for about a second and then go off.
\012The other common failure is bad capacitors. They typically swell when they fail, but you wrote that you did not see any swollen capacitors.
