Having problems with your Acer AL1913W 19" LCD Monitor ?

Monitor won't turn on normally. Possible Inverter problem?

\015 I have had an Acer AL1913W for a few years and when I first got it, I had\015\012to send it to get the inverter fixed. It's worked fine since then.A\015\012few days ago I cleaned the monitor through the vents with a really\015\012powerful jet of air (don't know it's the cause or a coincidence) and\015\012now if I leave the monitor off for a few hours, it won't go back on. It\015\012sort of stutters to go on and then goes black but I can still see the\015\012image with a flash light. If I turn it off and on a few times, it will\015\012eventually light up and will stay working. It seems it needs to warm up first. If I leave it on (with the black screen) for a minute or two and then turn it off and back on, it turns on immediately.Could I have knocked\015\012something loose inside with the air? Any ideas what to check inside to\015\012see if something needs to be replaced or fixed?\015

Answers :

Not likely that you knocked anything loose.
\015\012Keeping it clean is a good thing and helps stop overheating of parts.
\015\012Power should be unplugged when doing this. There is a slim chance if\015\012using canned air that at times liquid (usually freon) will come out and\015\012could cause a temporary short.
\015\012Ironic thing is: Overheating is what yours seems to be doing.
\015\012The capacitors on the powerboard or inverter are more than likely\015\012starting to fail from heat and age and should be replaced before it\015\012gets worse and eventually burns out a part that is harder to get and\015\012harder to diagnose.

I have a 3 yr Dell UltraSharp 1905FP LCD monitor.
