My ViewsonicVP930b Monitor Suddenly Turns Off

Okay so my computer turns on fine and starts up good. But after 20-40 minutes my monitor suddenly goes black, and the green light on the monitor turns yellow. Afterwards you can turn it on and off and when you turn it back on its still yellow. Rebooting the computer makes everything work right again, but after 20-40 minutes the monitor turns black and the light turns yellow again.

    If you coud possibally borrow another monitor to use so that you could narrow it down between  the monitoerr and the video card. Since it comes back on immidately upon rebuting the computer I woud suspect the video card first.

This is a classic VP930 problem.

It is caused by bad capacitors in the power supply circuit.

Open the monitor, and look at the power board. There are six capacitors. Replace the 220uF @ 25V and the 1000uF @ 16V capacitors. I would recommend replacing them with 35V and 25V capacitors respectively.

If the serial number on your monitor starts with Q8H you could also have a bad IC on the main board. Q8 on the main board is an FET in an IC package. If this problem persists solder a wire from the right side to the left side. There is one pin that turns the IC on and off. All the other pins (per side) are soldered together. Do not solder the pin on the left side that is by itself. Just leave it. Solder ALL the other pins on the left to ALL the other pins on the right.

Remember, do this ONLY if the problem persists after replacing the capacitors AND if your serial number starts with Q8H.

Either you have a "sleep mode timer on the monitor".....or you just need to adjust your power options in windows.

*Start > Control Panel > Power Options.

That should fix your problem.

Check ALL settings in the Power Options
enable wake up by keyboard (press enter or spacebar, usually) from standby/sleep modes, or just enable a screensaver and disable all hibernation, sleep, and standby modes.

Vaio LCD problem


Periods.......Nice little items because they denote the End of a sentence.
See how this works?

"I have a vgn cs36gj, I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black, I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture, sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

Now you try it.........

"I have a vgn cs36gj. I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black.
I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture."

Okay, I got that part.........

"sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

WHICH LCD?
Laptop LCD?
External monitor LCD?
Man on the moon LCD?

1) If the external monitor LCD goes 'pale black', the problem is the graphics chipset.
This I do not believe

2) If the laptop LCD goes pale black, this I believe.

My computer works normally but my monitor suddenly turns dark. I try to turn off the power (monitor) and when I turn it on back, it turns to normal. but few minutes later, the problem goes back. This...


Sir,
Does this happen when you leave your computer idle for few minutes? If so,then the Pc is
simply turning off your monitor to save power when you don't use it.And you can turn it back
on simple by hitting keys on your keyboard or moving the mouse to and fro.However if you
would like to disable/change this option the please do the following.

If you are using Win XP,then

1.Click the windows Start button,then click Control Panel,click Performance And Maintanance
and then click Power Options.

From the window that opens,choose the time period after which you would like your monitor to
get into power saving mode (the default is 5 mins) or choose 'Never' from the drop down box
next to where it says 'Turn off monitor'.Then click the apply button and finally the ok button.

If you are using Win 7 or Vitsa,the please follow the following link to learn how to disable this option.

Monitor turns off


Since the green light is going out the monitor's power supply could be the culprit. That popping sound is not good. I would replace the monitor all together.
