Question about ViewSonic VPW425 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Viewsonic 425 shuts itself off.

I was recently given a Viewsonic 425 that use to be in a dealership.  Well, I'm an electrician and traded some labor for it.  It works perfectly for about an hour or so then shuts itself down.  If I reset it in the back it runs for about 15 minutes then continues to turn off.  Any ideas?  I have basic electronic knowledge.

My viewsonic cine1000 shuts itself off after about 15 -20 min of playing. The bulb has about 500 hours on it. Why does it keep shutting itself down? It doesn't turn itself to standby either, the...


Make sure the PC itself is not going into a power saving or screen saver mode...this is the most common issue when playing completely automated presentations or movies.
Normally, I suggest turning off all power saving functions in the PC or Laptop, and disabling the screen saver all together.

Hi.

To start test the problem on a different main outlet, if the socket or the network in the house is not well earthed you may get this problem.


The problem is given by an internal faulty component, probably a faulty capacitor.

When you unplug and plug back, the electrostatic charges in internal circuit will get drained, and this will compensate the fault.

The monitor must be tested at component level to find the fault.

Hi, I missplaced the plug wires frm the distributor on my 1966 oldsmobile delta 88 425 4brl, help


Just go to any auto parts store and ask for a universal kit for a V8 425 Engine, while you are at it if the old cap looks boad get a brass contact cap lasts longer. If they dont have one keep checking around someone will stock it , also If you are handy with a crimp tool, they make a kit for mechanics that sells the wire on a spool, and sell the crip connectors as well the boots. If the guy gives you a dumb look as to duh , or says no such thing I would say Thank You and Walk away after several years of working on cars myself for basic repairs short of going to the dealership to have it done right. Live in a small rural town ? try a big city or do a web search, order on line IF the site has a SSL padlock and the beggining https:// if not I would not trade with some site that does not use even a eTrust or BBB logo My fav is NAPA and they have a AAA discount and next to OEM on part quality.

Have parts for Viewsonic VPW-425 42"


If these are used parts or from a scrapped set, buying used parts would be a very risky investment.

Broken plasma tv screen.....nec model


SoCalRugger,
The plasma usually has 2 sheets of glass, the outer one sounds ok which is not good news as these can be replaced.
The inner panel is the actual plasma layer and if it is craked or broken it usually requires a swapout for a new panel.

Monitor (viewsonic e70fb) keeps shutting itself off


the screen has begun vibrating and is very hard to read.


it sounds me that there is some sparking in power supply or high voltage section (FLYBACK) due to loose contact,

 

your problem of  shut off, I would turn it back on and it would stay on

.might be also due to that only.

please call tech if you are not a tech person.

it is not a major one & simple to fix.

good luck.
