Having problems with your Acer P221W LCD Monitor ?

ACER P221W No display and power light blinking

\015 Initial symptom was the monitor would not come on, but the computer was running. I knew this because I was running a networked printer off the system. A couple of days later, the computer seemed to die as well. Disassembled the computer and found the fan on the video driver card smoked, thus my thoughts led to the video card, nvidia 8500, so I pulled it since I also have an on board video interface. When removing the card, the computer came back up, but the monitor still seemed dead, with the blinking power light. Tried to hook the monitor up to my laptop still an no go. Wondering if it might be something simple on the monitor, or if I need to just put it six feet under and install a RIP tombstone.\015

Hello,
\015\012
\015\012You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors\015\012will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called\015\012capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are\015\012good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm\015\012You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,\015\012replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work\015\012fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -\015\012connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the\015\012same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. If the monitor does not have any bad caps then I would be that when the video card died it sent a spike to the monitor and killed the driver board. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

I have an Acer AL1912 that when you plug in the ac, the green power light will blink for about a minute and a half then go solid. The backlight will come on and you can see a faint ghost of vertical lines for about 10 seconds. The backlight then goes off and the power light turns amber. You can unplug the video cable and plug it back in and you get the 10 second ghost and it goes amber again. Any ideas?
