Question about ViewSonic N2750w 27 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

LCDTV turns itself on and off

My tv is less than 2 yrs old. One day it just turned itself on. While i was looking for the remote it shut itself off. It kept turning itself on and off. I took the batteries out of the remote and called Viewsonic. They told me to leave unplugged and off for 8 hrs to restore factory defaults. No change. I called a tv repair shop for estimates. They said it would be $350 and was a problem with the power supply. Seems expensive for a $650 tv. Does this sound accurate and is it something I can fix myself?

You could order a power supply yourself and install it, but if the tech on the phone was wrong it would cost you a lot. Better to at least inspect it yourself.
If you are not familiar with electronics it could be tough to pin down the fault. Over-the-phone diagnoses are really only 50"50.

It COULD be any of the following:

Power Board
Main Board
Control Board
Control Board Wiring Harness
IR Receiver Board and or harness.

Visually inspect the power board for any capacitors that are vented or have shrunk cases on them. Check it for brown spots on the board itself. If there are brown spots you may have an overheating component. If it's s discrete component like a resistoror diode you can replace it. If it's an IC, you may have trouble finding it and might end up replacing the whole supply.

On the main board you can check all the connectors to make sure they are plugged in all the way. Make sure there are no overheating components.

On either of these boards, if you find dark brown spots you might want to consider replacing that board.

You can replace any bad capacitors you find easy enough.

Our shop would charge $75 labour and the cost of the part for a repair like this. A few hundred dollars for a circuit board is not unusual.

If you leave the tv unplugged for 2 days (atleast) then plug it back in and try to turn it on and if it comes on its the power supply board. If it comes back on it will probably shut off between 30min to 4hrs and you would have to unplug it for 2 days again. All the power needs to drain out of the tv. If thats the case take the back pannel off and check the part number out on the internet. Not hard to do becarefull touching things the power supply does store a little bit or shock in it. Good Luck.

Turns off by itself after i've turned it on

I have this same TV and had a similar problem. This may or may not be the same case with yours. The button panel on the front of your TV may be having connection problems. Mine would come on and off by itself. I took the front panel off and cleaned the connection on the button board with a q-tip and a little dab of alcohol. This cleared up the problem of it turning itself on and off.

TV Turning on and off by its self

You have problems with a condenser that allow the power supply to maintan an acceptable level of voltage in order to keep the TV on. take to a tech to be fixed. unfortunatelly, this problem needs a tech to take measures in the circuitry to find the component that causes the problem.

There are other places you can take monitors to get worked on. I believe just about any TV repair facility will also be able to repair LCD TV's as well. You may want to first try something else first however. Go buy yourself a UPS Battery Backup that has AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation) built-in. I'd try doing that before paying someone to try and fix it. Besides, if that doesn't do the trick, then you can always take it back for a full refund.
