Tip & How-To about ViewSonic Computers & Internet

Viewsonic Monitor VA1912w

I just got a Viewsonic monitor with a flickering interference moving from top to bottom.  On examining the internal power board the capacitors CE101 and C200 were seen to be 'blowing'.  Replacing these 220uF capacitors restored correct operation.  I uprated the 2 capacitors to 105C 50V.

just started flicker today, I've had this monitor for at least 2yrs and no issues ever. VX2235wm and used ALL the time.


The problem is in the power supply / inverter board, commonly caused by bulging capacitors at the top, "indicating they are open" the capacitors will need to be replaced to correct the issue.

My Viewsonic VP201s monitor is hooked up as a second monitor off my laptop. I can no longer view anything on it. It appears to be flickering at a high speed. However the laptop screen is fine. It seemed to happen when my screen saver didn't kick in and i came back in the room to discover this a couple hours later.


Open the monitor, examine the circuit boards. Look for small components that look like small cans, these are capacitors. If you see any that look bulged on top, then your problem can probably be solved by replacing these. Check out the following sites;

flickers continuously


From what I have heard the isn't a great monitor and most say stay away. Sorry for the advice. There is one thing I would try, to increase the Hertz from 60 to at least 70...here is how: right click in an open area on your desktop...a box opens...->PROPERTIES->SETTINGS TAB->ADVANCE->MONITOR TAB-MONITOR SETTINGS there you'll see a drop down arrow->click on it a select 70HERTz ->APPLY-> OK...just for good measure, reboot...that may help..if not try the link below for more help Good luck...
