Question about ViewSonic VA550 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Not powering on

Hello guys and girls,

A friend of my just finished moving to the new apartment, but since he was not able to move everything to the new apartment, I was given this Viewsonic monitor.

However, upon trying to power on the monitor, I only found out that the monitor would not power on, I know the external power brick to the LCD panel works, because when I plug in the plug into the power strip, there was a spark, and the green led light is also lit when plugged in, but the monitor would not power on, no matter how many times I press the power button, any insights on what could be the problem with the monitor??

P.S I wouldn't mind opening up the panel, although it would definitely be better to at least get an idea of where to start once I get the monitor opened up....

Any helps are welcome

Thanks

-Joe

Hi

This is a problem with a high magnetic field hence you need to de-goz the screen. Or leave it un-used for some time and it will be alright by itself.

Maybe when you were shifting you have kept a speaker with big magnet around the monitor thats why this has happened.

Dont worry it will go bad to normal by itself.

Monitor wont power up


It is possible especially if it has a loose or slightly faulty component and moving the monitor has caused it to fail especially if you bump it in the move.
Does the power LED light up when you switch on the monitor?

I just moved and my monitor is saying it has no signal. Everything is hooked up the way it was. Whats wrong?


Go inside and move the card to another slot. If that doesn't work, take the monitor to a friends house and confirm the monitor is still good.

Monitor has no picture


Yes! :)

Your monitor is not the problem. Check all the connections from the back of the monitor, to the computer.

"No Signal Analog" means your monitor is working perfectly, however is not receiving signal from the computer.

Didnt find any loose cables?
Try unplugging everything. Leave it unplugged for at least 5 minutes. You need to give the system time to drain all the excess power.

Again your monitor is fine, blue light > No signal > orange light is totally normal for your montior.

Need Help With Speaker Problems


Have you tried the speakers on something else it could be the plug clapped out Thats a bold question when one says "I know the speaker is not defective,".....it sounds simple...but I think a little more common sense HERE!!! You might want to try some headphones if the sound comes out of the computer than the problem clearly lies with the speakers sometimes they may like they were going good but when on the move some strange things happen to the speakers that one cant quite fathom. I think your speakers have clapped out why Im positive they have.......goodluck
