17" veiwsonic power blinking green

If i plug this unit in . it just blinks green. If i unplug it , it blinks green 3 to four times for 1 sec at a time. the four or 5th blink is a little longer, if i catch it just right by pluging it back to the lcd on the 4th time it will stay on for good, till i shut it off. other than that you can shut it off with the power button, but it will start blinking again. ps it has like a plusing sound or clicking when i had it apart, thanks dave

    I have the same issue.



    Whenever I would switch resolutions, it would cause my display to go
    out and not come back on. Meanwhile the green power led would be
    blinking at me.



    I decided to do some research online and found out that this issue is
    incredibly widespread with this particular model. So, I decided to call
    up Viewsonic Technicial Support and told them about my problem with
    this model and how widespread the problem actually was. They suggested
    that it could be related to the "backlight inverter" and that through
    it's course of operation (which was roughly about 11 months after I
    purchased it) could have "burned out" or "got defective".



    So apparently the blinking green light means that the "backlight
    inverter" is defective and should be replaced. This is probably useful
    information for those who bought this monitor but don't have the luxury
    of a manufacturers warranty anymore.

    view sonic swapped it as it was still under guarantee so I'm back to a new monitor thing is initially view sonic where blaming other things until they saw it themselves, it is now a recognised problem with the TFT so they should swap it, otherwise go buy another TFT not view sonic if you are out of warranty. since the swap can change resolutions in frequency everything

    When i start Code of Honor2, black screen appear

  • juicemanj024 May 22, 2009

    Same thing here except mine doesnt seem to work when it is cool. If i just plain start up pc from a cold boot the display will go out after the windows xp load screen. My workaround is i start it up, and go into BIOS and let it sit for 2-4 mins. Then restart and it fires up everytime. Kind of annoying though.

The flashing green power button is a well known electronic problem with this (and other) Viewsonic LCD monitors. There is a YouTube video (do a search) showing how to disassemble the VX924 and find out whether the problem is related to blown capacitors. When I took my VX922 apart I discovered 6 bad capacitors out of a total of 7 on the power supply circuit board.Only recommended for those handy with a soldering iron.

Fellas, I have this issue as well, and have tested the monitor on 4 pcs and 1 mac, it is most likely a capacitor (or multiple) in the power supply or another component therein.
Mine survived almost 3 years...

If it is a Viewsonig VX924 or 922 a power supply replacement is in order and it can be ordered through the Viewsonic store for about 32 dollars if the monitor is out of warranty Part Number B-00003993 PSU. You must log-in to search for a part, but it is easy to find. If it is still under warranty and it costs less than $40 to ship it to them then I would suggest an RMA. Be advised that some of the "Equivalent" monitors are no longer available and it is their discretion to replace it with what "they" consider to be a worthy replacement. a VX922 for me was hard to replace even with the new models that they had released at the time of my service call. I finally decided to repair it myself since I could guarantee I wasn't going to screw it up after reading reports of some of the warranty repaired monitors that came back damaged.

Posted on Aug 18, 2009

I have the same problem as all above. Plus my power on switch is very loose. It's 2 yo, screw it. I'll call later today for an RMA number.

I have the same problem. It occurs on every fullscreen game (from Quake to Crysis).

I was trying to find a solution to this problem earlier but didn't come across this topic. That's why I created a new one here:

ViewSonic VX922 monitor - black screen - green power light flashes

But I just searched a bit more and I came across this current topic.

I'm not going to repeat what I said in my topic above, but all I'm saying is that I'm experiencing the same problem as everyone else has described above.

I've noticed that a coupld of people have mentioned Call Of Duty 4 and NVidia drivers. I think I first began experiencing this problem while playing Call of Duty 4 as well. During the game, the screen used to go black and freeze for a couple of seconds as certain stages in the game when there was a lot of activity going on in the game. But it used to go black only for a couple of seconds. I also tried installing recent NVidia drivers a couple of times to fix this problem.

So I don't know if CoD4 or the nvidia drivers had anything to do with it but that's all I remember doing when I first noticed this problem. CoD4 is a very resource demanding game. Maybe it brought the display to its knees. Or maybe it was the nvidia drivers... who knows.

Anyway, can't do anything about it now. The temporary solution of unplugging and plugging the monitor works, but it's a pain in the butt.

Looks like I'll be RMAing it too like everyone else. Now, where did I put that receipt. I hope what people say about needing only the serial number is true. :)

Posted on Jan 18, 2008

I first saw it on cod 4 too. Now it's common when changing resolutions. I have found that it's power related and specifically only occurs when the monitor has been used for gaming then goes back to desktop res.

I'm liking the 3 yr warranty and looking to RMA it, but I really think that they should not be offering refurbs to replace these.

Mine is in pristine condition and I am betting that I'd get one that was a little more beat up.

I too have the Blinking light issue.
Started on Call of Duty 4 then went on to affecting my startup etc.
Doing the pulsing while it was blinking occurred quite often.
I have a 7950GT and a ViewSonic VX922 monitor.
I am going to call today and get it fixed under warranty or whatever, since it is covered for 3 years :D.
Luckily all you need is a S/N for the thing and not your receipt :D:D:D.
And I have found a temporary solution. Use the VGA cables instead of the DVI. Should work for like, an extra few days haha.
Oh well. I feel everyones pain lol, it sucks.. Luckily I have a spare monitor =).

Phone Viewsonic, should be under a 3year warranty, they have offered to replace it for me swapping with the same model but a refurbbed unit.

guy on the phone said "green flashing light" means it has a faulty power supply, all your methods work but is a temp fix.

Seems once the montor has cooled down (leave it off for 10mins) it will work again. But at the end of the day it isnt drivers or anything to do with your pc, its finally knackered and hopefully they will replace it for you too free of charge.

No need for receipt or anything, they just ask for serial number and your address and thats it, monitor fixed

Damn it! Seems I have the same problem as all you guys. I have a VX922 as well and a 7900GT card, WinXP.

I first noticed this problem when I tried to ALT+TAB to desktop out of a game I was in a few weeks ago. When I did this the screen went blank with the flashing green button as all of you describe. Even though I rebooted the PC, the monitor was kind of "stuck" on the blank screen. Disconnecting the power/waiting a few minutes etc. eventually got the screen back again.

Since then it keeps happening under similar circumstances and now it is severely irritating me. Sometimes once it happens, a reboot definitely won't fix it. As you guys have described, unplugging the monitor power cable, waiting a few minutes then plugging it back in combined with disconencting and reconnecting the DVI cable eventually shakes the problem but it is still kind of hit an miss and a huge annoyance.

I too can see the monitor "pulsing" ("display was SLIGHTLY illuminated each time the button blinked") as if it is trying to change mode.

I am wondering oif this has anything to do with any of the recent releases of Nvidia drivers? I don't know when you guys first discovered this problem but to me, judging from the posts, this issue has become "popular" recently as opposed to something that has alays been (unless someone can show me otherwise). If that is the case, maybe the Nvidia drivers have done something to the monitor (stressed some hardware component) that is now preventing it from functioning normally as it did before.

As this problem can persist even if you totatly shutdown or reboot the PC even before the WinXP welcome screen should appear, it makes me believe it is a hardware problem and not a software/driver problem.

My solution has worked most of the time, unplug both vga and dvi connectors, reboot the pc, wait until the hard disc illuminator stops blinking to indicate booting is complete, then plug in the video cable.

After days of trouble shooting this type of issues - black screen with a blinking green power light. I found out that the problem was with the monitors DVI - if i disconnect the DVI from the video card and only leave the VGA attached, the monitor works. Viewsonic this has been an issue in the past.

Good Luck -

RMA it! I have the same problem with my VX922. You can still use the display by switching it off before anticipated res change (ie. boot with lcd off and switch on after system finishes loading, switch off before clicking game icon - turn on when game loading completed)

Guys, check you BIOS settings and make sure your your Init Display First setting is correct. My Viewsonic VX922 was doing the same thing after I did a BIOS upgrade. The BIOS reset that setting to PCI. After putting it back to PEG (the first PCI Express slot which the card is in), it's been ok. Hope that helps.

I have the same issue. No mention of the problem or even what a blinking green light means on the Viewsonic website. I can reproduce the problem on 2 different PCs using both inputs on the VX922. I have reinstalled the drivers. I got it to start working again last week (not sure what made it start working again), but when I rebooted it was back and I am stuck now.

I'm experiencing the same green blinking on my VX922. should I RMA it? the power button blinks green (as opposed to ambar when there's no more signal), with nothing displayed on the monitor itself. Odd tho, the display was SLIGHTLY illuminated each time the button blinked.

Posted on Sep 05, 2007

I have the same problem on my VX922. A temporary fix to this problem is to unplug the powercord when the monitor is on, dont turn it off using the button, wait for about 10 minutes then plug it in again and you get it started. Dont change resolution, start a game, or power off for at least an hour or yoou will have to do this again.

DaveT, When you say it blinks green are you referring to the power LED or the screen itself? If it?s the LED are you getting anything displayed on the monitor?

How do I fix my Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U TV?


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Our Mitsubishi projection tv went out one day. When we went to turn it back on all it does is blink the green light for a few seconds and then shuts off. What could it be? Where can we look to see where...


MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:

UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ONFOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD "device"(input) and "menu"buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protectthe Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergenceIC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES ANDTHEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOUHAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and twoblinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

FAST BLINKING GREEN & WON'T POWER ON


I had exactly this problem. After plugging and unplugging it multiple times over several weeks (even plugging it in quickly after it was unplugged but with the green light still flashing as suggested here) all to no avail, it just started working on its own one day. It worked for a few weeks and then the problem re-appeared.

InFocus tech support recommended:
1. Check whether the lamp door is securely closed.
2. Check the color of the LED and the number of time it blinks. (For me, a very fast almost flickering flash)
3. Does the fan operate? (My fan would go on when plugged in)
4. Remove the lamp module, shake it gently and reseat the lamp module.

For me, these steps did not work. InFocus then recommended that I send it to ProjectorDoctor http://online.projectordoctor.com/, and it was diagnosed with a bad power supply. $395, but it is fully functional again. Good luck.........
