Monitor comes up then goes black - Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor


Answers :

Dauber58, Can you tell us more about this acer that goes BLACK! How old is the unit? When you say "comes up" did you really mean that it displays the image for 10.5 minutes or only 1--2 seconds, before the BLACK SCREEN of DEATH sets in??!!!!! If you were using the unit 1 or 2 days before, and it had a nice bright, crisp, full color image displayed on it, it might be a possible candidate for refurbishment. Your symptom is the CLASSIC LCD monitor failure mode. Check out youtube to view the longer vid clips of "lcd monitor disassembly", lcd monitor repair" to learn what BAD capacitors(electrolytic filter capacitors) are and how to replace them with new to fix up your monitor. Here is a clue as to why you should try to do this. You stated that the "monitor comes up"!!! With $10 in new electrolytic filter capacitors and a little luck you may end up with a good working display that will work for 1-3 more years. Get back here with any comments or further ?s u might have. Also visit www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm run by another fixya guy (buddymc) and www.lcdparts.net , www.badcaps.net so that you will be able to make a decision on what to do. Bye for now.
