Having problems with your Acer X193W LCD Monitor ?

My Acer x193w monitor is powered ON but goes blank

\015 My monitor is powered ON but goes blank on its own. I run Windows Vista OS.\015\012\015\012I tried connecting the monitor to a laptop and confirmed the same behaviour. This means that the video card on my computers is not the problem.\015\012\015\012Sometimes the monitor functions normally.\015

Answers :

Is the display going dark, but if you shine a light on the display you can still faintly see an image? If that's the case, the monitor's backilight is going off. That's frequently because of capacitors that fail. You can open the monitor and check them, replacing any that are visibly bad or below their marked value.

If the display is going blank meaning there's no image but the backlight is still on, capacitors might still be to blame, but the might be other electronic parts at fault. The problem might also be in the cable. A bad wire or bent pin making a poor contact can cause the monitor to go blank. Examine the cable carefully or try another one if it plugs in at the monitor.

If the trouble's not something obvious and relatively simple, like the bad capacitors or a faulty cable, it's usually more economical to replace the monitor than to try fixing it. It's often hard to find service information for troubleshooting, and monitors are quite inexpensive now.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Acer AL2216W's green light goes off completely when the computer is turned on. When I turn on the computer and monitor, there is green light on on/off button while an irritating Acer logo is showing up. Suddenly green light goes off and screen becomes blank. I do not even see an orange light. I have already tested my computer system and cables. They both work fine when plugged into another monitor (HP 2009m). Please tell me what the problem is and how it can be fixed.


You may have failure in the power supply due to bad caps, bad inverter circuits such as shorted transistors, transformers, bad lamps. You need to open it up and make some measurement, see example of failed ACER monitors: ... Acer AL2216W LCD Monitor

ACER Al1916W goes blank in 3 seconds. It shows ACER splash screen for a sec., the desk top for .5 sec, then goes black. There is a very high pitch squeel each time there is any display. Power switch turns form green to orange after this 2-3 second display cycle. I suspect a bad inverter and the monitor is going into High Voltage protection mode interrupt.
