    Yep me too

  • Dazd Nov 25, 2007

    Same here...took it apart to see what might be amiss and could not diagnose, it makes a buzzing sound as it cycles on and off. ANY help is appreciated.

    One day the screen went black and the little green led on the power switch started to blink at the rate of about one second off and one fourth second on. I don't know how to make it go away. At first the problem was intermittent, or anomylous but now it seems more persistent, like a systematic or engineering design or parts problem. ViewSonic denies the problem even exists. Mine is a VX924. It sounds like the same problem. It is a bad problem since it turns the unit into very expensive garbage.

    Green light powers on and beeps, no display on screen, no response from Viewsonic on troubleshoot. Had to buy a new monitor as our business is dependent on our computers working.



    Is this thing repairable, and is Viewsonic still in business? I waited on the phone for 45 minutes today without anyone picking up. They advertised 24/7 lifetime support when I bought it.



    Not impressed with Viewsonic. Seems like a common problem on the internet and is not addressed on their useless troubleshooting menu.



    They have an online system that pretends to have live support behind it.



    A fraud.

    PLUGGED AND SOMETIMES IT COMES ON

  • Neubian Sep 09, 2008

    Was working on it an it just went black. Now the power light blinks when you turn it on, though it's a long, slow blink.

    I looked inside for broken capacitors. I found some that were bulging quite a bit on the power transformer board. Everything on the LV side seemed fine.

    Any advice?

    I am having this problem too with my VX924. Flickers on and off for like 30 minutes until it settles to on. Now is actually even longer. Now trying to test the components, BUT... I am stuck to opening it. Could anyone please either reply here or post a link to a bit of info on how to physically open this LCD display. Many Thanks

This is the same problem with my 4 VG800 Monitors, you should be able to find the correct capacitor on your monitors by following the same procedure, I'm sure the boards are similar. Just get the correct value capacitor and try it in parallel with the initial filter capacitors right after the DC power in.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Alright, I had 4 VG800 monitors with the exact same problem. The front led is blinky OR constant reddish/orangish OR picture is white with colored vertical lines OR no picture with whistling from the back of the monitor and backlights illuminated. All problems have the same solution. You need to disassemble the monitor (2 screws on the back, remove lower front button panel, remove 2 screws holding panel in and remove speakers, then remove panel and unplug speakers. Now remove lots of tape and screws from the cover in the center of the monitor). Now that you've exposed the amplifier board and the VGA to LVDS board, you want to look for the pair of 25V 100microfarad capacitors that are nearby the DC power in (they are right next to the black "100" inductor). Desolder the capacitor farthest from the DC jack and replace with an electrolytic with the same specifications. If you want to check that this is the correct solution please put the new capacitor (WATCH THE POLARITY) in parallel with the capacitor there want watch the front panel indicator go green and the monitor work properly.

I'll be posting and Instructable entry in the next few days on the process, watch for the username Waterppk on the website www.instructables.com

Don't know if I'm allowed to advertise here but I ended up sending mine to Monitor Depot in Houston Texas, $110 including shipping and its back working...Wish I could have fixed it myself but there is nothing out there to help...Still a good monitor so I decided it was worth it.

Having the same exact problem...it started with the green led power light flickering and it would take a long time to come up and then it got progressively worse...now the led light flickers red, yellow, green and the screen displays white lines randomly as the led light flickers...seriously doubt that the monitor is repairable....paid $500+ bucks for this sucker and have only had it for 1.5 years...have 3 CRT monitors that only cost $100 bucks from the mid 90's that are all still running strong (none are ViewSonic monitors), so needless to say we are very very disappointed in the QUALITY of ViewSonic Products. Our Company Will Avoid ViewSonic Porducts at all Costs in the Future!

Viewsonic/Proview monitors are all notorious for this! I have to go into various sites to troubleshoot these monitors. These monitors have two major components that allow you to visibly see what is being display! These two parts are critical the Inverter & Backlight. I have found that whe the flickering begins, distorted lines, grey screen, multi-colors, lines in meshed in the LCD, blinking power light, solid blue screen, solid green screen. These are all major causes of bad inverter, or blown backlight! Now if this monitor has a power supply that connects directly into the serial connector that connects to the PC, then it could definetly be the power supply. Power supply is important as well because sometimes they do not put out enough power to display the image so if these monitors all have a power brick connected to a power cord. Then the power brick is the problem! I see this all of the time with these monitors! Let me know!

Sanyo dp42849 completely black screen, green light blinks every minute.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy.

No power output or display.green standby light flashes.


Sounds like either a blown mainpower fuse or the thermal fuse for the power transformer. If the protect circuit was kicking in, the display would light up, but then turn off with a red blinking light. the green light with no display means the transformer is not getting power.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525 HDTV that suddenly wont turn on. Just has a green blinking light when you hit the power button. Any ideas?


I found this on another website, most likely it is your power supply capacitors.
  1. Press the "reset" button and hold for 10 seconds .... Does TV turn on and blinking green light turn to solid green.

  2. Unplug the TV from it's power source for various times, ranging between 5 minutes and 24 hours..... Does blinking green light continue upon plugging in the TV.

  3. Disconnect ALL devices from the TV; DVD, Tuner, Cable Box, unplug the TV for various duration times .... Does blinking green light continues upon plugging in the TV.

  4. Press Power and Menu buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  5. Press Power and Display buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  6. Insure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.

Diagnosis: If none of the above test resolve the issue, then the failure lies in one of the following:

  1. DM Module Capacitors have FAILED.
  2. DM Module is defective.
  3. EEPROM Board failure
  4. Power Supply failure.
