Question about ViewSonic VG920 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

No Power From the first day I rec'd this monitor, it would power off during use, stay off for a few seconds, and then come back on. Over time (about 1 yr.) the time it would remain off got longer and longer. Now it won't power on at all. I assume there is a problem with the power supply and have no problem attempting to fix it myself. All I need is a confirmation that this is, indeed, the problem and some advice on how I go about fixing it.

Re: No Power

The main things to look for are bulging or leaking electrolytic capacitors, bad connections, shorted output transistors, and defective output transformers.

After a while LCD monitors develop problems that are usually caused by faults in the internal circuitry. This could be an issue with the power capacitors failing. If you feel confident enough, you can remove the back cover and check to see if any capacitors are bulging or leaking. (Give it at least 24 hours unplugged to allow the capacitors to discharge before doing so). I found THAT little bit of knowledge out the hard way
