Question about ViewSonic Pro VP2130b 21.3" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Viewsonic VP2130b monitor no post black screen

Have a Viewsonic VP2130b monitor. It does not show a post screen or windows, but the power light is on. It does this on all 3 of our pc's, so it has to be the monitor. Have taken out the DALAVPMB020 digtal board and the EADP-64BF B power board. Can see no overheated componets or burned tracks on either. Suspect cap or zener on power board, but don't have the tools to test them and don't want to get started in a hit and miss soldering job. Any history on the bad component?

Here is a suggestion:
By looking at the power board you should see the light, and where it is connected to, so diagnose the circut from that point foreward eliminating any potential of damging the board. try any cables or ribbons.

Where can I find the right driver to install a Viewsonic VE710b Flat Panel Monitor? I am running Windows 7, 64-bit **This connects to my VGA port, I already have 36" Samsung conntected via HDMI, and


Search Viewsonic.com. The Windows generic driver usually works. If you have a special video driver for your Samsung, it may be interfering. Multiple monitors have to be set up through your display driver. The viewsonic should be available through the device manager.

Won't power up


1.This could be the transformer on the power supply board that needs replacement along with a bad rectifier diode in the full bridge mode.
2.check diodes in the power supply should read .535 with the digital meter leads ( red ) on the anode and the black lead on the cathode. this indicate good is lower then the diode needs replacement.
check the internet on how to test diodes in a circuit. If you are savvy enough you will successfully repair this unit.

Viewsonic VP2130B no Video


First off, on these monitors, usually the power board is also the inverter board. If its not on this model monitor, and you know that by opening it up and seeing the backlight cables connected to a different board, than that may be the problem, but it might not be.

Secondly, Why did you replace the power supply? Were you not getting anything? power light? anything at all?

If you were getting the power light, but no picture (black screen), something else was most likely the problem.

Your problem is probably the backlight. It sounds like its out. Does the backlight come on at all? If it doesn't and you can faintly see an image if you look closely or if you press the menu buttons and see a faint change in the screen, thats the problem. Normally I would say its either the power board OR the backlight, but you say you replaced the power board. You need to replace your backlight. You can do that a couple different ways:

1) Replace the whole LCD panel. This is a costly fix, so if you are adventurous and cheap like me I would advise against it.

2) Replace the backlight panel. You need a screen like yours that is broken, but has a good backlight. That way you get it cheap, because its broken and beyond taking everything apart and putting it back together again, its relatively simply.

3) Fix the backlight you have. There are tutorials on how to do this online, but its harder and more dangerous (mercury and toxins that can cause lots of damage). I wouldn't do this, but if you want to I would suggest doing it in a place with lots of ventilation.

There could possibly be a problem with your mainboard, especially if you see no image AT ALL and you don't see a backlight. If your power board/inverter and backlight are fine, you should see the backlight on, regardless of the condition of the mainboard. If you see the backlight, then the mainboard is the problem. If your power board failed, and the power light wasn't coming on before, its possible that the board fried your mainboard and potentially your backlight (although damaging your backlight is rather unlikely).

In any case, good luck to you!

NEED TO CHECK FOR BAD CAPS IN VIEWSONIC vp2130


Hello,
To disassemble your monitor follow these steps.
1. Remove the stand, usually 2 to 4 screws
2. Now there will be screws in each corner on the back of the monitor.
3. Take a small flat blade screw driver and seperate the two halves of the case. The front and back are held together by plastic latches spaced several inches apart around all four sides.
4. After the back case is off the boards you will be looking for are under the metal shield, remove the screws that hold it on.
5. Check my web site at www.ccl-la.com , we have pictures of what the bad caps look like if you are not sure.
6. Be sure to replace any capacitors that have raised and blown tops.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.
If you need more info let me know.

Base on the information given to me.

I think your computer is on sleeping mode.

first thing check if the video cable is not loose connecting the pc.

The other thing you can do.

go to properties
go to screen saver
click on power

adjust the time you want your monitor to shut off.
