Question about ViewSonic VG150B 15" LCD Monitor
I have a viewsonic 15" lcd monitor (VG150b). I got vertical yellow
colored line, 2 months back. It kept changing places in the begining
but then new lines started coming and they all have found a permanent
place.There are abt 12 lines now.CAN IT BE REPAIRED ???? Please HELP.
My Warranty expired last year.
SOURCE: Short, 3/8", horizontal blurs
I posted this answer on another "white streak" question, I suspect this is right:
This issue presents itself in different ways in this monitor, in the form of smeary video, or color changing from the left to right, or as you indicate, a smear following text. I know this as I own this monitor, and have repaired this myself. There are three 1 mf capacitors, surface mounted on the control board inside the monitor that fail. They are in the RGB input lines, and when they fail they cause distortion of the RGB signals, causing what you see. They are the three caps you will find in a row, spaced maybe 14mm on the board between the VGA connector and the processor chip. I would replace all three, observing polarity markings. You can get by just fine using old-style thru-hole caps, just form and clip the leads and solder 'em down on the surface-mount pads. I highly recommend proper soldering tools for this job though, especially for the removal of the old parts, they don't want to come off unless you can heat both pads at the same time.

The maximum resolution for this moniotor is 1024 x 768 @60Hz, your PC video resolution setting is too high for the monitor to support.
