Having problems with your Acer X221WSD Monitor ?

Blank ACer X221W Monitor

\015 I have an Acer X221W monitor connected to an HP Pavilion a320n desktop. It has been working fine for the last 6 months until yesterday when the screen went dim and then blank. If I switch the monitor off then on the screen shows "ACER" briefly for about two seconds then flickers dimly and then goes blank.\015\012Is the power supply faulty or is it something else?\015

Answers :

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD\015\012monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After it went dim and blank, you have to\015\012check if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the\015\012screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very\015\012closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem.\015\012Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some\015\012of them were broken and it is easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on\015\012the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have\015\012soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may\015\012cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board\015\012because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a\015\012technician to do so.
Common problem with that monitor (backlight works for 2-3 seconds) is transormer SPI 8TC00332

Blank screen my acer x221w started making a high-pitched noise. I power-cycled the computer and monitor. When the monitor came back on, the screen remains black.
