    I have a View Sonic VA720, and the power light stays green all the time, and the screen is black. When you try to turn the power button off you get a picture for about 5 seconds and then it goes black again. with the power light staying green.

It is likely that the backlight inverter is failing. This is a very common problem. The inverter is one of the two ciruit boards inside the monitor. If you can still see a very, very faint image on the monitor, then the backlights are not coming on. The inverter is easily replaced by removing the monitor's back cover, then removing the RF shield over the inverter board (on the left side of the monitor's back), and then finally removing the inverter. A replacement part will cost about $60 as of the time of this writing. The new board will plug right into the 3 cables and is mounted with two screws.

One of the backlight converters might be failing. Check the fuses on the converter, or ask a technician to do it for you. Good luck

You did not mention the model but it sounds like you have a DLP unit. If so you need to replace the optical engine. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4251975-replace_dlp_light_engine which explains the process and where to get manuals and parts. Let me know if you need more help.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

You have the television on sleep mode. You'll have to disengage the sleep function! Most tv have this option so that you can go ahead and snooze for a while and the tv will turn itself off!

Screen comes up for about 10 seconds, then goes blank


Hello Robert,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Lose picture 10-25 sec., keeps soud


I had the same problem with my set. the problem was with the lamp bulb. They don't teel you this, but when a bulb start to go, this can happen. Iuld turn my set on and it would work. After about 45 seconds, the picture would "turn off" (still have the sound). This would last for about 45 - 60 seconds and then the picture woudl come back, but then the cycle would stsart all over again. I took a chance and purchased a new bulb (I bought just the bulb, not the bulb and housing). I took out the current bulb and housing, replaced the bulb in the current housing, and put the bulb/house back in. Problem solved! (have not had the issue since). Hope this is helpful!
