Monitor failing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Acer 22 inch monitor. Powers on but I get a black screen with back light. If i change the native refresh rate of 60 hz to 30 hz then apply it, follow by changing it to its native resolution it starts to work for a couple of days.

This is the only way I can get this monitor to work.

Anyone have come across this issue?

thanks.

Never have seen that.

I'm guessing you've verified it is the monitor and not gpu/pc?
Have you tried switching power cords/dvi cables/tried a different outlet?
I wonder if you can flash the firmware?

You could crack her open and see if there are any obvious blown capacitors to replace or see if you can buy a cheap copy of the same monitor and swap out parts but at that point I usually just buy new.

Not too sure what else to try! Hopefully you get it sorted.
