Re: power button doesn't work...

Your problem is not the switch. Probably you have faulty capacitors, deteriorated solder joints or worn out bulbs.
To open the case, remove the base (push button and lift off).
remove any screws under the base plate.
Pry the front and back cover apart, they snap together.
Good luck,
Monitor Mike

After a storm the other night my Proview PL866s amber light is blinking - however when I press the amber button (which usually turns green and then it works) nothing is happening except blank screen and...

If this happened after a storm, the monitor may have been subjected to a power surge, which unfortunately might have killed it.

If you have another monitor (or a friend who has one) try plugging that other monitor into your computer. If the second monitor works, yours will need to be replaced as the input was probably destroyed by the power surge.

If the second monitor also doesn't work, there may be a problem with your computer, most likely with the power supply (this is the part most often damaged by a power surge). You may want to have it examined by a professional computer repair person at that point.

Hope this is helpful!

The monitor will not turn on. When power button

First--was it working?
Did it suddenly stop?
When you see the LG logo, then it goes away, does the power light turn from green to amber? Sounds like that doesn't happen.
So--if you are getting a signal, you should see something.
If there is no signal, then the power light should change from green to orange.
With no lights at all, I suspect a faulty monitor.

How to remove the screen bezel from the HP L2335?

ssocko123, If you plan on replacing the switch let me suggest that you go watch some video clips of lcd monitor disassembly at YOUTUBE!!!
The longer (6-12minute) ones will be more helpful. Stay away from the usless ones where they shoot them with guns or use 10lb crow bars to open them!! Have fun guy. 12fixlouie if this was of some help please rate on fixya.....

Viewsonic vx800

I have repaired several Viewsonic VX800 monitors. The symptoms include a power light that flickers or flashed on and off or a screen that flashes on briefly or stays off. The problem is bad electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board. These bad capacitors do not look bad and do not swell but they do develop a high ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance). You need a ESR meter to check them. But if you have these problems, you should assume the capacitors are bad and just go ahead and replace them.
First you must open the monitor and gain access to the power supply board.
1. Remove the stand: It is held with 6 screws on the back. Also on the back are 2 black screws that must also be removed.
2. Remove the button bar from the front, bottom: It is pried off. This will expose the 2 screws holding the front plastic bezel.
3. Remove the silver plastic bezel from the front: First remove the 2 screws holding it, then you can pry the rest off. This will expose the 2 screws holding the screen to the plastic back.
4. Remove the screen and electronics from the plastic back: Remove the 2 screws holding it. The 2 speakers are glued to the plastic case. Cut the glue with a knife. The screen and electronics and speakers should lift out of the plastic back.
5. Remove the metal cover to expose the electronics: There are 2 screws holding the VGA connector and 2 screws holding the DMI connector. There are 9 screws holding the cover. These must all be removed. There is a black plastic sheet glued to the lower edge of the cover. It must be lifted. The cover should now come off.
6. Replace the bad capacitors. The power supply and signal processor are on the same board. It is marked VG800-2. The bad capacitors are surfaced mounted 100UF 25V. The bad capacitors are CM16, CM17, CM2 and CM165. The two most critical are CM16 and CM17, but they all read high ESR, so I just replace them all as long as I have them exposed.
Reassemble in reverse order.

Black screen flashes after initial power up

Possibly the backlights have failed. The screen part may be working normally. Get a bright light close to the front of the screen, see correct image faintly. Commonly it is failure of the high voltage inverter circuits that power the backlight fluorescent lamps. You can probably buy replacement circuit or repair the one you have. I have done this on another model. You need to search the web for experience of the same model. RDL.

Won't turn on

This is a problem with either the power supply or or logic circuit. It could also be caused by a failure in the back light circuits. One of these problems has caused the power supply to go into protection mode and will not turn on due to bad voltages sensed in the feedback circuits. Return to dealer for service. Hope this helps you .

Monitor just black

I would guess the capacitors are bulging or leaking. It can be repaired if you are handy with a soldering iron. Good Luck.

This is embarassing

Not certain for this monitor, but most LCD monitors seem to have a bezel that slides upwards to remove.

If removing the small screws allows you to lift the bottom edge of the bezel, then I'm pretty sure that's how it will work - put it face up on a desk or your lap with the screen upwards, lift the edge fo the bezel a little and push the two nearest corners away from you at the top (the left and right bottom corners as you would look at the monitor on your desk). The bezel should slide maye an inch, come off the clips and then lift right off.

Hope that helps.
