Question about ViewSonic VA1703wb Monitor
Hi guys of Fixya, I have this Viewsonic VA1703wb 17" monitor. My problem is that there is no display but the power led in on - "green". I have tried to open and found 3 bulge caps. After replacing, the same problem exist. What are my other options except replacing the whole LCD?

I was having the same problem. Believe it or not I fixed it by unplugging the monitor, and when I restarted my PC I again had the 1440 × 900 option.

Blinking on and off is not always a capacitor issue, it is usually caused by faulty transistors at the high output transformers that light the backlights. Crappy board design ! But fixable in most cases.

I have two broken VP201 monitors with different symptoms. One was black screen green light - like yours. The other was purple speks flying all over the screen., purple tint.
I swapped the power supplies and display boards, both monitors had original problems. I swap the inverters and the monitor which was black screen now appeared to work okay - but slightly pink and the monitor which was purple speks is now black screen.
I would therefore assume that both my inverters gone, one being on it's way out. You probably have the black-screen case.

Same symptoms with no display and blinking green light. My monitor had been having a distorted image occasionally and a subtle whack on the side would clear it up for a week or so. I replaced both of the 1000uF 16v caps and both 250uF 25v caps on the power supply. All 4 were bulging before. Powered up and all looks good. Thanks!!
