Question about ViewSonic NextVision N3200w 32 in. HDTV-Ready LCD Television
My TV seems to be looking for a signal and the screen is blank. The green power light is on and the unit makes a chirping sound. I have tried using all ports with different sources and nothing changes. Any way to reset the TV?
That chirp indicates a feedback on the secondary transformer in the switch mode power supply and needs to be either repaired or replaced. A good shop can have this one back up in an hour or so - assuming they have the parts on-hand... If they have to replace the SMPS you'll naturally have to wait a few days. Most shops don't have such specific parts on-hand and will have to order it.. Replaced an entire SMPS for an Akai recently with the same symptom, chirping. Turned-out to be the regulators and two MOSFET's. A MOSFET is a metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor.. In laymen's terms a switching gate. But below the two MOSFET's, when they went thermal they burned the board and several small traces which could not be bridged. The SMPS was $70.00 plus shipping, and you're probably going to be somewhere in that ballpark on this too if the whole SMPS has to be replaced. Good Luck Bill
