  • Monitor fell over..now it wont work ???

    The kids accidently pushed the 22 inch monitor over..it fell forward onto the

    keyboard....now it wont work....just a blank , black screen.

    Anyone know what might be wrong with it ?

    Seems a bit strange ....or are LCDs that fragile ??

        I didnt check the power on light ...will check tomorrow

        And talking about power issues...they said that the entire house blacked out when it fell over .....might it have shorted something inside with the bump ??

                That's what a smashed LCD looks like.

                so... do you have Accidental Damage insurance?

                  Not sure on that one ? ...I have contents insurance....have to have a look at the policy to see if it will cover this sort of thing.


                  Anyway, seems that there is no power to the unit that fell over...is there anything I can do to fix that problem ?, do these things have fuses in them ...or some other consumable part that I can replace, to get it going again ?

                  So what I'm saying is.....how do I troubleshoot it ?

                  Not a big deal...but would be a pitty to throw it out if it's an easy fix .

                      You could unplug it, place a multimeter (on Ohms scale) across the 240AC plug and operate the power button.
                      If it stays OC, it could be cord, switch or fuse.
                      If the resistance changes it could be more serious within the power supply.
                      Personally, I would take the back off and see if anything has fallen out, unseated, etc..

                        OK...will give that a go ...didn't even think to use the multimeter.


                        I will also look inside ...I got as far as decasing it the other night ...but didn't go any further .

                              Further investigation has found that one of the capacitor legs, on the solder side of the PS board has shorted out against the metal back of the display panel ( both are burnt )...like there was a zap of power .


                              So...should I just order another power supply board from Acer ??...or might there be other problems ??
