Ever since a couple of days ago my Acer AL2423W monitor has this issue where, upon turning it on, it usually only displays the Acer logo faintly and then just all black, versus that previously it would display the Acer logo until it becomes more bright and then the display comes in correctly. These days I have to turn the monitor on and off until it feels ready to take the Acer logo all the way from faint to bright and show the display correctly. Most times for about 10-30min it refuses to take it all the way, leaving me turning it on and off until it feels ready to complete the process.
I took great care of my monitor over the past 5 years or so. It's a beautiful 24" that cost me ~$500. Why can't Legacy models be scheduled for repair? Are Acer monitors meant to last only ~5 years?
Could you help me?
