I found one reference to symptoms like this, but not for an Acer monitor. That reference suggested the monitor had gone into SAFE mode (for the monitor, not what it’s connected to). That particular monitor could be reset by disconnecting the power cord, holding down a certain combination of the front panel buttons, and reconnecting the power.

With the V223, possibly holding down one or more of the buttons while connecting the power might reset things to the factory default settings.

On replacing the capacitors, I did find a uTube video showing how to do that. Seemed very simple, but it would only be for someone that was comfortable with working on printed circuit boards and wielding a very small soldering iron. Probably getting the monitor apart is as big a deal as the capacitor replacement (if you know which ones are bad).
