VX922 19" Monitor -Terrible customer service by ViewSonic

I purchased my VX922 19" Monitor in 6/06 and from the start we had problems with "NO SIGNAL" and blinking green light as previously posted. It would work intermittedly until 10/08 and then it was completely broken. I've tried it on two different computers with two different video cards. Same result. I called Viewsonic because it was under warranty. I had to pay for shipping back to Viewsonic ($50.00) and they 'misplaced' the monitor for 12 days before they even started to look at it. They kept telling me they have a 10-14 day turn around time once they start workining on it (+7 days shipping =21 days total). They kept giving me the run around until they decided to send me a 'replacement' monitor that took 7 days to receive (you think they would want to please their customers and send it express) and of course it was just a refurbished VX922 that wobbled and had a stand problem and also DID NOT WORK! It was a total of a month before I received the other broken monitor.So now I am stuck with a refurbished VX922 that doesn't even stand correctly and Viewsonic has not returned my e-mails since 12/22. I wrote The Chicago Sun-times (my home town paper) and plan on reporting them to the Better Business Bureau for faulty product and terrible customer service. I suggest you do the same as you will get nowhere with this company! This monitor is not cheap, I refuse to spend another $50.00 to ship a broken monitor back and I am sure they are just waiting for the warranty to expire. My son had no monitor for college finals. I could not do my Christmas shopping and I run a small mailorder business which all have suffered due to this company's incompetancy...tell everyone you know NOT TO BUY VIEWSONIC product...they will only end up unhappy, without a monitor and broke!

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 :-)

My screen is saying burn in and keep switching colours all the time.(white,red,green,blue.


You may need to send in unit for service because your unit is unable to go to sleep mode when the signal cable is disconnected or the PC is turned off. Please call ViewSonic Customer Care for support.

Although this will not hurt the monitor, you just need to apply an active video signal to get a display correctly. However, it will not work as expected to go into sleep mode. You'll need to call ViewSonic Customer Care to get this taken care of.

Want schematic for viewsonic monitor va1930wm


Hi Marcel, thanks for using FixYa.

While I could not find the precise schematics you were looking for, here are some helpful tips you can use to find them before you go to a repairman to fix your TV.

Do you still have your original box and manual? Some companies include the schematics here or provide you a phone number to call to find them.
Utilize Viewsonic's support page found here.
Email vsparts@viewsonic.com for schematic information. You will likely have to purchase them however.
Some big stores like Best Buy are able to order the schematics from the manufacturer if the customer service representative is unable or unwilling to give you the correct information.

Unless you can find someone who has the schematics (either online or on here), it is likely that you will have to purchase them yourself.

Emailing vsparts@viewsonic.com is probably your best bet to find them.

Hope that helps!

My monitor dont come on, and green light flashng, viewsonic vp930b.


If your ViewSonic LCD monitor has stopped working with a blinking green power button, It typically means that there is one or more failed capacitors in the monitor. It would be best to send the monitor in to Viewsonic for service or to purchase a new monitor.

Hi FixYa A query about my Viewsonic VA1932WMA screen. The screen works ok when the computer is on. However when I switch the computer off the screen starts displaying different colours - blue, red,...


If you have an older graphics card the signal will still be searching for a monitor. Contact Viewsonic and they will get you a non DDC adapter.

Viewsonic vx2835wm monitor, in DVI mode connection, altough getting signal from the PC(Other monitor connected and tested for graphic card problem-No graphics card problem!!) , Prompts "No input-signal"...


You will need to change the resolution of the screen on the computer to 800-600 and the bit to 24bits or 16bits, to do this right click on the windows screen, and click properties, goto settings.
You should see a slider at the bottem left of the screen to adjust the resolution, and a drop down bar on the other side for the bit rate. This should solve the problem, also you could open the scond screen also in the display properties, and drag what you need to see on the screen to that screen, you will know what i mean when you open screen 2 it just expands the desktop. hope this helps.

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
