Faulty Acer Monitor


Recommended Posts

Recently my Acer monitor model ED323QUR monitor stopped working. It happened while I was using it, the display just faded to black over a couple of seconds. The back light still works, and the monitor powers on, but no display, not even anything from the OSD/power up display (usually get the Acer logo for a second or two).

 

I managed to source a second hand control board from Ebay, which apparently came from a working monitor with a cracked LCD. Same results.

 

The power board is supplying 12v as expected. I have a second monitor plugged into the graphics card and that working just fine, so because of that and not getting any OSD I don't think it's an input problem.

 

It's a nice monitor, and wasn't that cheap. It failed just a couple of months outside warranty unfortunately. I'd like to be able to fix it as I'm not in a place to be able to buy an equivalent replacement at the moment.

 

Anyone got any ideas?

Might be your backlight that went out. Happens. When you have your monitor on, shine a flashlight on it. If you can see something, that's your issue.

 

Can you RMA it, or is it out of warranty? I think you tried everything else. Sorry, but you might need a new monitor...

 

Edit: Oh, might have read over that. Did you contact Acer? Even though it is out of warranty, companies can still fix/replace it.

As stated, back light is working, and it's out of warranty.

 

I haven't contacted Acer. From what I've seen however they'll charge a something llike £70 just to look at it (plus my shipping costs which won't be insignificant on a 32inch monitor). That's before any replacements parts.
