Monitor shows on receiving signal, will not display image.

I have a Viewsonic VX2235WM Monitor. Had a power outage overnight that outlasted battery backup. Monitor went off. Have unplugged and re-plugged everything, rebooted computer and monitor shows blue light indicating it's getting a signal. But it does not display any image. Tested computer with another monitor and its working fine. Appreciate any suggestions.

Hi, I have a ViewSonic VX2235mw LCD Monitor it was working fine then all of a sudden the screen turned off and now it wont turn back on. The power light is on and is Blue but no sign of life in the screen...


Hello,

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 am currently on my laptop because when I turn on my desktop, the monitor (ViewSonic VX2235wm) powers on with a message that says No Signal Digital and then turns off. Any suggestions?


hi; your monitor has no problem, its your cpu. Try to hook your monitor to your laptop,and change the display setting to your LCD monitor. If LCD has displaying no signal mean signal coming form the Video card of your CPU try to visualize if you hearing some beeps into from CPU, some motherboard has beep codes if there's an error or failure to your CPU, 1 beep means its good system test. if you don't hear any beeps, try to check first your Video Card marmeto12_21.jpg if you have Spare try to replace it, try to reset all the connectors even Memory card to its slot. reset means pull the connectors and place it back again, also check the power supply of cpu if still functioning good.but you can test it by multi volt meter. if nothing happens check your motherboard most common failure is bloating capacitor, and overheating chipset. thanks....................hope this helps...................

ViewSonic VX2235wm have to power on and off several times before image obtained. Used to be once or twice now it is more. Is there a fix??


The power supply finally died due to bad caps. See my pictures here:
http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Viewsonic%20VX2235W/
Make sure to replace them in a set.

Capacitors kit: http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/ he can make you a set of caps for you.

Or www.digikey.com just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

"Lines" or irregularities through the monitor image display


Check power supply section for bad caps with bulging top first, may be a sign of failing power supply: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Viewsonic%20VX2235W/

Moniter flips out after it warms up


I repaired my VX2235WM that wouldn't turn the display on anymore (would accept a video signal for a PC, but no image would be shown) by replacing 5 stressed electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board.

Viewsonic VX2235wm Horizontal Image Problem


Tricky one. Have you tried using different dispay resolutions from your Windows Display Control Panel?
ie 1200x1014, 1600x1400, etc.

When you say you used the manual adjust, do you mean the horizontal sync option?

Did you perform a Settings Recall?

And most monitors have a way of entering into an engineering "Factory Service Menu". Usually by depressing specific buttons while the monitor is OFF, and then pressing the power button while still holding the others. Then let all button go at once. From there, hit the normal button that you use for getting into the OSD. In the OSD, there's usually a new field with all kinds of cool new settings to play with. One of them being a soft reset. You'll have to search the net for how to enter into your Factory service menu.

Oh wait! I know!
If your picture has moved to the right, move yourself accordingly.
So that now you and your picture will be aligned properly.

He he he...
Kidding!
That one was from ViewSonic customer support.
