ViewSonic 19'' VA1918wm monitor problem

I had a problem with my monitor. It would not turn on. I complained to the customer service folks, who sent a service engineer to inspect the problem. He noted that the logic board was faulty.

Now, it's been 45 days and the customer care tells me that due to parts unavailability they aren't able to send the logic board soon enough.

Does anyone know what I should do in this case? How do I get atleast a temporary replacement for my monitor.

The only advice that I have on this issue would be to call ViewSonic again and as soon as you get a Rep on the phone you need to ask for a supervisor. In the event that the supervisor is not helping you ask to speak to his supervisor. Make a point to mention the issues that you had in the past and then make them aware that you are upset while maintaining your cool because they will be more apt to work with you if you remain calm.

If all else fails you might mention that there is a burning or smoke smell coming from the monitor :-)

SOURCE: Hi there, My Viewsonic failed about a year ago and

Buy a new monitor!! Seriously, unless you're the techie type that likes to tear open electronic equipment to see how it works and/or fix it, you're better off buying a new monitor especially if this old monitor of your's is a LCD.

You need to check the fuses on the backlight inverter board, also the logic board may be damaged by the AC voltage.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I want to see my lcd monitor's waranty status from my serial no


Hi

you can call ViewSonic Customer Support: 800-688-6688 in the U.S. and 866-463-4775 in Canada, give them your product serial no and they would be able to give you the status on your product warranty.

In case you want to avail the warranty service they would also give you a RMA (Return Material Authorization number) number.

As mentioned on ViewSonic website "ViewSonic LCD computer display products carry a three (3) year limited warranty for parts, labor and LCD backlight. Optiquest products carry a limited warranty of one (1) year for parts, labor and backlight. In order to receive warranty service, proof of purchase of the ViewSonic product is required."

Hope this helps

When I turn on the display, the ViewSonic logo appears then the TV turns off and then back on.


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

WHERE CAN I FIND THE POWER ADAPTER? How much?


I did not know. I also never knew they existed. I tend to purchase Viewsonic or HP monitors as they tend to offer the best quality product and customer service. That's just my personal preference though.
