My ACER AL1916W LCD monitor shows a Black Screen. The "No Signal" message does not appear and the LED blinks green and orange.
I have been using the monitor since December 2007 without any problems. I checked it with another PC. gives the same problem.
Generally if no input is connected and if i switch it ON, it used to display "No Signal" and LED turns orange.
Right Now when i switch it on in the morning, the light goes "green, orange, off, green, orange, off....so on".
After is try switching it on and off all possible ways, after a minute I see a my desktop wallpaper. I can use it all day long unless i switch it off again and leave it for few hours.
Matter of fact i cant leave the monitor on all the time.
Is there any way to solve this other than saying, dude, your monitor needs to be repaired by experienced personnel or your monitor has a hardware issue. Because once I manage to get it switched on, it works perfectly normal, no heating up, no visual defects, no sort of problem then.
Thanks is advance.
My acer monitor is doing something similar. Today it started just going to a black screen as if it was preparing to activate the screen saver, but then nothing. Moving the mouse would not bring back options to input password to unlock the computer. I have to turn off the monitor and turn it back on and then the picture comes back. So far, its been random lengths of time that it holds picture before going black, but each time it goes black I have to power it off and back on. I disconnected it from the cpu and reattached it a couple of times and that worked too. Again, some times it holds picture for a long time, and then others it blacks out within moments of being turned back on, or plugged back in.
Can anyone tell me what this could possibly be? ( four times... five times in the last sentence alone it has gone black and needed to be poiwered on and off. I am typing this right now without the monitor. Frustrated. Angry. On the market for a new monitor now.)
