Having problems with your Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor ?

Monitor turns on but after a while goes dark. Green power light is still on but no image. turn off and back on and image flashes then dark again


Answers :

Nyecop, Sorry to hear that your LCD panel has been struck down with the BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH that is running rampant on the planet. YES, it can be repaired(refurbished). The cheapest method is that a lot of owners are doing it themselves if they are skilled in the use of a "fine tipped 40watt soldering pencil or iron"! They get off cheap, buying only $3 - $8 in parts. And some of them after fixing their own, got real smart and now go looking for $2 to $10 "BSOD" monitors at GoodWill, Salvation Army, and second-hand, resale shops to repair them and turn them into good working units that will work for 2 or more years.They then turn around and sell them for 4 times what they put into them. By the way, nyecop, do you know how to do the FLASHLIGHT TEST and evaluate what the monitor's "switch-mode-power-supply" is doing? You WILL if you read some of my older responses in my profile and follow some of the many leads. You might pay a visit to www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm , www.lcdparts.net , and check out the stuff on YOUTUBE. Well, anyway, from you're description above, It' my best guess that the SMPS inside the unit will require some work to repair it. You will also learn about HOW a lcd monitor works. Hope to read a comment added by you after you do some reasearch and make a decision or your course of action. Bye for now, 12fixlouie aka louie12fix
There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
