Question about ViewSonic VP171b 17 in. LCD Television
The monitor(VP171b viewsonic) was working fine. Res: 1280X1024 60Hz. suddenly the screen became white. after repeated power on. the screen display came back and faded away. Looking from tilted angle the screen appears to show graphics when turned on but slowly fades to white screen in few seconds. What could be the source of problem? is this fixable? thanks
the problem is not the mian board but the DC to DC inverters that drive the lamps behind the panels some manufactures make them available seperate from the panel but most are a part of the panel. so the whole panel may have to be replaced.

this is my problem too. i called viewsonic and explained my problem. They had me send it in. after waiting over a month for them to fix it, i recieve it in the mail. Out of the box i plug it in and turn the tv on and THE SAME EXCACT PROBLEM IT HAD WHEN I SENT IT IN HAPPENS AGAIN. It started doing this again. My solution would be not to buy viewsonic monitors/TVs. They never reply their emails and overall their service kinda sucks. sorry. There may be an easy fix to this but apparently the numerous people i talk to on customer service don't know how to fix the problem... BAD SERVICE

I had the exact problem with an Acer P191w monitor. After only 2 months of light usage, it would power up and show a beautiful picture (my desktop from my pc) for about 2 seconds and then only a black screen. I was about to send it back to Acer when I tried resetting it. That solved the problem. I know how to reset an Acer, but I'm not sure how to reset a viewsonic or even if that would work. I think the viewsonic reset procedure is, monitor plugged in but power off, press the front panel "channel up" and then the "power" button. As the monitor powers, keep holding both buttons in until "All Reset" appears? If that is not correct, perhaps someone with more experience with viewsonics can offer more help. The power supply capacitors are definitely a big issue. But this may work for you. If so, it's an easy fix.

SOURCE: ViewSonic VT2230 turns on, shows
This kind of problem related to bad firmware saved in ROM that is part of main board so main board will be rpelaced to solve this issue.
It has nothing to do with power supply board that was replaced.
I'm not sure if main board is available some where as I could not locate it.
