Question about ViewSonic N1800TV 18 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

How do I replace the backlight in a ViewSonic N1800TV?

If I look at the monitor from a certain angle, I can see that the menu still pops up. So I think the screen is fine. The screen is just VERY dark. Is changing the backlight something I can do on my own without spending a fortune on taking it to the dealer?

Hi Jake.
You most likely have a bad backlight inverter, there is a small chance it could be a power supply issue but I doubt it.
Replacing the inverter should be straight forward and easy but working with high voltage electronics can be very dangerous, I must tell you that it should be repaired be a trained professional but if you decide to do it yourself I will walk you through it.
You can buy the inverter at www.shopjimmy.com. When the part comes in get back with me and we can proceed in a chat from there.
In the meantime please rate me a FixYa.

The short answer is no, becuase by time you pay the $50 for the backlight, and $75/hour for the tech to fix it, you can buy another 22inch for the same price and have a 5 year warrinty.

Sorry,

If it's too dark to see the menu to adjust the brightness, it's a bad backlight - send it back!

Viewsonic vp2000s LCD computer monitor - no image displayed; possible backlight outage.


It is possible that the backlight has quit working. Use a flashlight, held at an angle to the display, to see if there is a faint image visible. If so, then have backlight repaired. Otherwise, try a different input / cable.

Extremely Dim/Dark ViewSonic Monitor


There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

My viewsonic monitor is fluxuating pinkish to white to pinkish


Hello,

When LCD monitors start turning pink that is an indication that the backlight tubes are failing. Check the date on your monitor most Viewsonic LCD monitors have a 3 year warranty and yours is probably still covered. If it is not then you may want to look for a replacement unit. You can replace the backlight tubes but if you are not a tech it is probably not going to be easy for you to do. If you have questions email me and I will try to help.
