Question about View and View Technologies VNV AquaView 15HPB (Black) 15 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

PS/2 power supply connection

I was given a 15HPB monitor withoput the power supply. I was told that it didn't work. I do not know if it was the power supply or the monitor itself that is bad. I don't see an easy way to open it up. Does anyone know the power connection on the PS/2 connector (+12V, +5V, grounds). I picked up a similar power supply (+5V, +12V, at the required 2A) for $5 at a hamfest. However this one has a regular keyboard connector. What are the odds that a old style keyboard connector to a PS/2 connector would match the power supply pins. I don't want to spend $35 on ebay for the correct supply, if the monitor could be bad.

Re: PS/2 power supply connection

You seem to have an oddball monitor if what you describe is correct. The power supply to a monitor[Display Screen is that what you mean?] is either direct to main power- in which case the power cord is either built in with a power plug for wall socket, or has a socket on the back for a separate main power cord. Or is powered from a low voltage converter that delivers low volts usually via a coaxial plug like this illustration PS2 connection does dot come into the equation as far as I know unless you have got hold of something unusual. Tell you what take a shot of the back of the monitor and lets have a look see mean while here's is a shot of a typical low voltage power supply available anywhere.

it sounds like the power supply
if you open the monitor follow the power cord and you should see the on/off switch then it will lead to a transformer and the power supply circuit maybe its a loose connection you need to find a technician who fix electronics

Sylvania CL772B LCD monitor has no power

The board with 200-100-SH700 on it may be the problem. I came up empty trying to find anything with that number, there should be some other number either ink-stamped on the board or on a paper sticker.
Google can be your friend if you find the right number.
Somewhere there may be someone with one of the same with a broken screen. Ebay?

The USB hub/connections cannot be used for driving the monitor... It is only an extra feature so that you can connect USB devices (such as a mouse & keyboard or flash drive) at the monitor instead of the computer ports.

You must use the RGB/VGA connection to use the monitor.

When you turn ON the monitor, it should "announce" itself with a logo...

When you were given the monitor, were you told that it works?

Please connect the monitor and comment back...

Monitor screen looks dark but if you look close you can see image

husslin, Yes, you too can join the crowd of people whoose LCD/FPD power supply and or Cold-Cathode-Fluorescent-Tube power supply(called an INVERTER circuit) which supplys hi voltage to light up the backlight tubes so you can see all the pretty colors on the front of your screen has failed.
If Samsung won't do a swapout, you send them your's plus some cash and they send you a same model refurbished unit in exchange, then most likely you will need to effect a repair on your own. The fact that you are able to see the image ( Windows Desktop or IE) is a good sign. It means that the MAIN POWER SUPPLY board is at least supplying voltage to the logic/video processor board inside the monitor. LCD/FPD displays have 2 or 3 printed circuit boards, not counting the tiny board that has the on/off and adjustment switches on it. The large board that is connected to the AC line will be the Switch-Mode-Power-Supply which may or may not include an on-board Inverter circuit. These SMPS/INVERTERs have 2 causes for failing. Either one or a combination of the two. Failed ELECTROLYTIC FILTER CAPACITORS from thermal stress, and or other heavy components whoose leads are soldered on the bottom of the board have developed circular stress cracks in their solder joints. Well, I've probably told you enough to get both of us in trouble, but if you surf over to youtube, do search for vids on lcd monitor repair and or bad capacitors or swollen caps in lcd monitors. Got to run now, but you can get back to me at louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@
PS look for vids on lcd dissaembly or such. I have seen some about 10min long.

Monitor Problem

First check the power switch with a multimeter,if its correct then check the power supply part of the monitor circuit. If you are having any problem with that part change the FET with another.
