Having problems with your Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor ?

How long should my Acer AL1916W last, I bought it a little over a year ago and It's dead?


Answers :

In my mind everything should last forever but cause most everything is manufactured overseas in bulk, there is bound to be problems cause of lack of quality checks and recalls.

In your case cause there is no power then its either going to be bad caps on the power board or a bad lcd that is shorting out the monitor.

Either way it would be more cost effective to buy a new monitor unless you have good soldering skills to where you can look for puffy caps and replace them with caps of the same value.

Motherboard failure Hi I have been told that my motherboard in my Compaq Presario , which is 2 .5 yrs old and has not been used for 1 year , has failed. Can someone please tell me how a motherboard can fail. I bought a new monitor and plugged it into the PC and I got "No Signal" on the screen for a few seconds before it went blank. The monitor is OK on my other PC. I have been quoted 400 AUD / 600 USD for a new motherboard. Is this a reasonable cost? Thanks

GT5028 I bought one thinking it would be an easy fix, well not so far. took out everything and tried to get a beep error, but nothing. So it isn't memory, video card, or monitor.
