Having problems with your Acer Computer Monitors ?

Acer AL1711 LCD Monitor goes repeatedly black after bootup after just a few secs picture and has to be turned on & off at least 6 times thereafter with picture staying only 2 secs each time until picture stays permanently. Same thing when connected to a different computer but had to use the same monitor cable each time.


Answers :

Cpburn, It's BROKEN!!! SHUT IT OFF AND LEAVE IT OFF!!! The "switch-mode-power-supply" has DETECTED a fault and then goes into full or partial SHUTDOWN to save itself from a catastrophic, nonrecoverable failure. eg. sparks, smoke, fire. The good news is you stated "picture staying only 2secs" !!! It can be fixed! Just how you do it is the question only you can answer. If you know how to replace components on a circuit board (unsolder&solder) you might do it for less than $12 in parts. To understand exactly what is involved I suggest a visit to www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm run by another guy on fixya with nickname "buddymc"! He's GOOD! If "do it yourself" is not your thing, then here are your options: Acer refurb swapout. ??? Contract to local TV/Monitor shop.?? Contract to a distant Repair shop.??? But before doing any of the above try YOUTUBE and search out and view some of the longer (6-12min) vid clips of "LCD monitor disassembly""Lcd monitor repair". If you require further assistance I can be accessed through [removed by staff] or on fixya. I'm 12fixlouie If this response was of some help please rate on fixya. Bye fo now.
