Question about ViewSonic VX910 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

LCD Monitor has no video

Hi, My Viewsonic LCD monitor has quit working. The screen is blank, and I have tried it on other computers, and the power button flashes on and off at about a 1 second interval. Can you tell me what it is wrong and perhaps where to get the part to fix it?

Re: LCD Monitor has no video

Sounds your monitor has either blown a backlight or the inverter board is bad. Either way they can both be replaced, but tracking down the parts will be a bit difficult. But your LCD Monitor is in trouble! Sorry!

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.

I replaced the video board on viewsonic vx2235wm-5 now video turns on then off

That is a power supply problem not a video board problem. You will need to either rebuild or replace the power supply to fix that problem.

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 (they should be replaced in a set), 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:

Monitor with a blank screen

The monitor is about 2 years old, time to inspect the caps in the power supply first, look for caps with bulging top. The problem can also be in the inverter circuits, or bad lamps. See example of failed monitors due to bad caps:
