LCD Monitor TV Combo displays only white, has audio but no video

When ever I turn on my Viewsonic lcd display all that appears is a white screen. no logo. no menu. just white. It started doing this only 5 months after i got it.

I can tell that it still works through the menu because i was able to switch it from the D-sub imput to the composite impute. When I hooked up my N64 I heard audio playing so only the video is messed up.

I though it might be a loose wire or a bad compacitor, but i can't even get it open. I think there is a lock on it because on the back there is a symbole of a lock with a k in the middle.

I've searched for the problem everywhere and only found one person who had the same problem and no one was able to solve it. Viewsonic wants me to drive 600 miles or so to bring it in for repair. and my worrentech extended warrenty people don't have anyone in my area who can come in and repair it (apparently they don't do repairs in CA).

any ideas would be great.

Yep I Have the SAME problem. Except the menu function for switching source to TV has disappeared, and sometimes the AV option disappears too. I heard it was the power supply...I'm gonna hope mine is still under warranty. What a piece of junk!

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

In my View sonic CRT monitor E71f 17",there is a curve appearing on the upper side of the screen and there is some space between the display and the screen, please help. thanks


It's time to responsibly recycle your old CRT monitor, and spend about $100 to buy a new 17" or 19" LCD screen, rather than spending any money at a qualified TV/video technician, trying to trouble-shoot the problem.

My screen turned black and began flashing.


Kim, The LCD display requires WHITE light so you can see all the colors on the screen. Most BLACK screen problems will be a power supply problem internal to the monitor. I monitor is still under warranty, have Viewsonic repair it. Here are a few more options that could be available if unit is out of warranty. 1. Trade in for new widescreen display. Please note that the electronics technician at the store will evaluate your monitor and try to repair it for less than $10 in parts! He or she will keep it as a spare unit or sell your monitor for $40 - $60 to a buddy that needs a spare or second monitor. 2. Check to see if Viewsonic has a CASH+old unit swap-out program. They ship you a REFURBISHED same model unit w/ 30day warranty. Yes! They will REFURBISH your old monitor and ship it to another customer. But that's only if a swap program is in effect! 3. Check with a local TV/LCD monitor repair shop, to see if they refurbish LCD monitors with new or rebuilt "switch-mode-power-supply" / "inverter supply" / "cold-cathode-fluoiescent-lamps" . 4. Most costly option. Buy new display AND have your VX910 repaired and kept as spare unit! Before you do any of the above mentioned options visit (FYI) YOUTUBE and search for and view the longer (8-12 minute) video clips of "LCD monitor repair" and "LCD monitor disassembly" to learn what the most common causes of LCD BLACK SCREEN failure are and what parts are used to fix them. Also visit www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and www.lcdparts.com , www.badcaps.net for more information. If your VX910 falls into the FAILED CCFL backlight catagory get back here to fixya and let us know what option you will persue. If this was helpful to you or someone else, rate this response on fixya. 12fixlouie by for now.

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video cable. senerio: My son hook it up using HDMI Cable to my bedroom sony flat screen tv to watch a blue ray movie and play some games. which...


I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!
