Having problems with your Acer AL1714 17" LCD Monitor ?

LCD monitor display is not appearing

\015 Hello hows it going.\015\012Coolguy008 told me to seek you out for assistance. My question is in\015\012regards to my LCD monitor. I have the Acer AL1714 17" model. When i\015\012turn my monitor on the green light appears and everything boots up\015\012fine. once i am at the log in screen it is so dark, very dim to see\015\012anything but if i you were to look an inch away from the screen, you\015\012could vaguely see what is being displayed. The image is only a little\015\012bit noticeable in a right degree of light. I would like to know what\015\012could be the problem to a very dim screen. It works fine, but can the problem be the inverter, lamps or back light? In advance thank you very much.\015

Hi,

It would seem that you are on the right track. If the desktop could be seen (albeit very dark background) then it could either be the CCF Lamps (cold cathode florescent) or the inverter that powers the lamps. One way to verify is to shine a flashlight at an oblique angle to the screen, semblance of part of the desktop could be seen.

Often, the larger the screen, the more the number of CCF lamps. Being a 17incher, I wouldn't be surprised if your Acer AL1714 would have two. Having said that and I am assuming that both lamps are not working, then the common denominator would be the inverter. It is relatively easy to replace the inverted. It is sometimes more difficult and challenging cracking open the casing of the monitor than replacing the inverter. Additionally, inverters are readily available online. It is also not surprising that inverters for other brands/models would also be used in your Acer.

This would be a good place to start for inverter boards. This is a nice tutorial if you are considering a DIY.

Hope this be of additional help/idea to Coolguy's assistance. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
