Having problems with your Acer Computer Monitors ?

The monitor keeps turning on and then turning off I cannot get into the monitor menu nor will it show the operating system. It just keeps cycling on and off. Sometimes it is difficult to get it to shut off completely. Even when pushing the on swith it still keeps cycling on and off. It shows the ACER logo and then starts again.

Mlawson557, If you connect old monitor to your pc and it works fine, then most likely there is a problem with the "switch-mode-power-supply" in your lcd monitor. I assume that your unit is a CCFL "backlit" lcd unit???? You should always state model and type in the body of your text message. You probably won't be able to fix this with software. Sounds like a SMPS that is cycling "in and out" of SHUTDOWN MODE due to it's detection of a fault with another circuit.. Disconnect it from pc and see if it still acts same way. Get back here with some prior history of your unit such as How old it is? Did it have a nice display of web pages, bright, crisp, text and graphics just before the "on/off cycling" occured??? If no warranty, then you will need to decide to fix or trade for new. Before you do anything you should do a lot of reading in my FIXYA profile. Your unit isn't any different than ANY OTHER BRAND OF LCD MONITOR. If your handy with a soldering pencil, solder, and some basic electronics tools you might be able to repair unit for $8 or less if DIY is your thing. If not, then trade it in and let the technician in the back room fix it and sell it for $40. Also check with ACER to see if they have a swapout program (cash+old unit) for a refurbed same model. Let us know what option you will do. You can do additional comment as long as you don't RATE this response. I'm 12fixlouie Bye for now.
