I have an acer AL1702 LCD monitor that will come on and display the acer logo, then it will display the input (computer of course) for only a sec or two, then it will black out, but the power light stays on. If you turn it back off and then on again, it will come back on and repeat.. Sometimes it will stay on for 1 sec, sometimes 6-7 sec. Everything i've looked up so far only applied to some HP monitors having this problem and they were all because of a bad solder joint. So i got out the soldering iron, and looked for any that looked bad, didn't find any but i went threw and touched up EVERY single joint on the board, took forever. And guess what, it still doesn't work right. But i guess on the plus side i didn't screw it up any worse
If anyone could give me any clue as to what could be wrong with it i would appreciate it. I guess i should mention that when it goes off it is the backlights going out, not the lcd itself. Thx in advance.
