Having problems with your Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor ?

Acer AL1916W has black screen

\015 My monitor has been working fine and i shut my computer down and when it rebooted the power light would come on but the screen is black. I changed both cords out and it still isnt working. If you tilt the screen and put a glare on it then you can see a picture in the background. I took it apart looking for a bulb or fuse and was scared to go to deep. Is there a bulb or fuse that could have went bad? And if so, how do i get to it. lol\015

Answers :

The backlight in your monitor isn't coming on, so all you have is that faint image you see.

This trouble is\015\012frequently because of capacitors in the monitor which fail. Often these\015\012parts (cylinder shaped, usually a couple of inches tall and an inch or\015\012so in diameter) have visible problems such as tops that have bulged or\015\012split, or brown leakage at the bottom on the circuit board. If you're\015\012adventurous, you can take the back off the monitor and check.

If\015\012you find any capacitors that look questionable, you can get\015\012replacements at Radio Shack or from online parts sellers. Capacitors\015\012have markings on them for their value in microfarads (abbreviated as mF\015\012or uF), a voltage rating, and a polarity. Some caps have the positive\015\012terminal marked and some the negative. Just note which goes where on\015\012the circuit board. Get replacements that have the same capacitance\015\012value, but a slightly higher voltage rating. They will be a little\015\012larger physically but should still fit, and under-rating is what\015\012usually causes the failure in the first place. Observe the polarity\015\012when installing the new parts.

This all sounds a little scary\015\012perhaps, but it's really not a difficult repair. If you're not\015\012comfortable with the idea of trying it yourself and you don't know any\015\012technically-inclined types who are willing, a TV or stereo service shop\015\012could do it. But with labor and their markup on parts, you might spend\015\012over half the cost of a new monitor.
