Hi, I have a ViewSonic VX2235mw LCD Monitor it was working fine then all of a sudden the screen turned off and now it wont turn back on. The power light is on and is Blue but no sign of life in the screen...


This is a very common problem with this model after a few years of use. This problem is caused by a failure of the capacitors in the power supply board hat powers up the back lights in the monitor. When the back lights don't power up you get no display on the screen. Here is a link to a repair guide for that model that shows how to open the unit and what to look for and replace to repair the monitor.

Here is part one of the three part video repair guide posted at the above link:

My ViewSonic VX2235wm will come on for about 3 seconds and then go off (black screen). Power remains on according to the front LED (amber LED), but you have to turn the monitor back on (purple LED) to get...

Look for bad caps as shown in my pictures here:
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

Viewsonic monitor -- VX2235wm LCD

avintagedish, Possible problem w/unit power supply. Go trade it in on new a new wide screen so the electronics technician in the repair area of the store can (with a little luck) put less than $10 in parts into your unit and maybe have a nice VX2235WM to give to his 10 year old kid to play games on. I sure hope you have a valid warranty!! You should verify that VX2235WM does same at KNOWN GOOD pc!!! Swap-in a KNOWN GOOD monitor to prove pc is OK!!! Read my FIXYA profile and learn "flashlight test" for "rude an crude" test of "switch-mode-power-supply" status. Follow the links you find there to other web sites for more info. Check to see if ViewSonic has a cash+old swapout for factory refurbished unit for premature failed units! I'm lmistyrel over on aim. and 12fixlouie on FIXYA good luck in your quest to fix unit. It can be fixed. Just do your research FIRST! So you don't get ROOKED if you contract out the work. Read, read, and read some more!! Visit YOUTUBE for video clips of LCD monitor repair and disassembly. FYI.
Bye for now.

Don't let the computer turn the monitor off. Go into control panel and click on power option. don't let the computer turn anything off and disable hibernation if on. go to screen saver and have it come on in about 30 mins.

ViewSonic VX2235wm monitor looses power ...

I've not seen this problem on a ViewSonic but have on a Dell flat screen. The fix was the obvious one: the power connection on the back of the monitor was loose -- have you checked this. Also if the power cord is too tight it could be the problem. Other then this, it sounds like a short inside the monitor.

Hope this helps
