I am not sure if my Acer a22 16w is bottoms up. It only comes on briefly when I turn my computer on. How can I trouble shoot it?

I saw it but nothing comes up on Google with that code, is it a monitor?

Not sure, maybe about 8-10 years
Expert:  Martin replied 11 months ago.

Fairly old, is it connected to a PC or laptop?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
PC and it just suddenly stopped working. Is there a self test I can do?
Expert:  Martin replied 11 months ago.

Not really, you could try pushing the power button for 30 seconds as well as leaving it unplugged for 30 minutes but it should work without doing that.

Can you do something else, press the power button on the actual computer for 6 seconds while you think it's on (not while it's off) so it shuts down completely, then power it back on and tell me exactly what the screen does, if it shows any logos and what the lights do (flicker and color).

Thanks

Did that already. The BIOS display comes up then disappears. If I the turn the monitor off then on, it shows me where the coputer is in the boot process, then immediately goes blank again. The power light turns from green to amber

Sounds like you have a bad capacitor, you could send it in for repair and it would work well again

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
That's what I was trying to find out. Probably cheaper just to get another one.
Expert:  Martin replied 11 months ago.

It's probably cheaper to get another monitor than getting it fixed but if you're confident with a soldering iron you could fix it for a few bucks

I am not. Thanks. I am satisfied with your service. Bye
