Having problems with your Acer AL1716 17" LCD Monitor ?

Acer AL1716 Power problem?

\015 When plugged in, the power light will glow green for a moment then the Acer logo actually appears on the screen, then the logo disappears and the power light goes back off... Connecting and disconnecting the monitor cord does not affect it, and all computers tested with this monitor yielded the same results... Does this sound like a serious internal problem? Maybe a switch?\015

Answers :

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.
Open monitor up and check caps. If blow get high voltage but same micro ferad( like if it was 10v 1000uf go with a 25v 1000uf cap) I caps look fine check for cold solder.
