Having problems with your Acer Computer Monitors ?

Acer 22W monitor goes blank after a couple of seconds. Please help.

Answers :

Tjpartners, Have you determined if your display is BLANK, or just BLACK!!! Yes, it can be both! But sometimes if you shine a brite flashlight about 1" from the screen you will be able to see if the screen is only BLACK, but not BLANK because you can still see a very faint image of the Win-Desktop if you look closely. If you see the image then that means the "switch-mode-power-supply" is only in partial shutdown mode and trying to save itself from a catastrophic, nonrecoverable failure! Do the flashlight trick and do a repost to your original message if possible. 12fixlouie
