Answers :

I have the same model monitor that I think had the same problem. What may have happened here is a part inside the monitor is broken. If so, you need to send the monitor in for warrantee service, or failing that buy a new monitor or replace the LCD inverter module on the monitor.

Technically what happened to me when I had the issue was this: a set of powerful lights behind the LCD shine through it, allowing you to see the image. These must be driven by several inverters (called ballasts on your typical fluorescent-type light fixture). If the inverters fail (which is what happened in my case), no image. You can call acer and have one of their suppliers send you out a new inverter circuit for $80. The install is quick enough and it'll solve your problem. Or just buy a new monitor.
