Having problems with your Acer AL1715 (Black, Silver) 17" LCD Monitor ?

Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor

\015 Recently, with my LCD monitor (Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor), I've noticed that sometimes, my monitor would go orange in places, and I can see the lines that form the images on the screen. They flash and glow orange in some parts, but they don't in others. It also changes with the background, eg. on my desktop, the middle top part is orange, while on Mozilla Firefox, the entire panel on the top (the one with the address bar, the 'File, Edit, View' etc.) is orange and some parts flash. It started about 3 weeks ago, but back then, I could just turn off the monitor for about 5-10 secs and it would return to normal. Now, however, it won't return to normal even after closing for 1 hour, and shutting down and restarting. The monitor is fairly new, about 3-5 months old. I've also unplugged and replugged the cables (there is only two: one for power and the other to connect to the computer.) The monitor is a Plug and Play, so it didn't come with any drivers. Any help would be appreciated.\015

Answers :

Certain versions of the Acer AL1715 monitor had a problem with the VGA socket. Specifically, the plastic case around the socket was not wide enough. The plastic interfered with the plug and so the plug did not seat properly. I fixed several of these monitors by shaving off some of the plastic with a dremel mototool. A hand file would probably work as well. You have to remove the plastic back to do the job.

Hi. My LCD has the same problem(in my case i have toxic green glowing areas). It starts about 2 years after i bought it, and as the time went by it was getting worse. First it appears after 3 or 4 hours of work, now it can be about 30 min. I thought that LCD is damaged by heat(after some cool-down time it got OK, but these times are longer and longer). Now I find that "reseting" from OSD menu solve this problem, but I don't know for how long :( Some drivers are there: http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/monitor/al1715.html
