Question about ViewSonic N1930W 19 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

I have a n1930w-2m tv and the screen is really dark, I've tried adjusting the picture settings in the menu but they don't help, anyone have any ideas?

I'm at a total loss here, it only seems like the brightness is doing something, but even then its just making the black brighter, not actually the picture. again its a viewsonic N1930-2m. any help is appreciated.

Backlighting bulbs are out. They may need replacing, but check to see if they are getting power first.

SOURCE: I have 2 ViewSonic N2750w and and they both have black screens

i have repaired several n3750w viewsonics .. that may be similar to the 2750 .. in my case all the failures were caused by the same faulty part in the power supply .. the power supply has a 48 volt supply at about 7 amps .. the design uses a syncronous rectifier .. these are normally not used in supplies with that high a voltage out .. syncronous rectifiers make sense when the output voltage is low .. like 3 or 5 volts .. the parts are designed for that range .. but in this supply an IC is over stressed and fails frequently .. you might hear a chirping sound as the supply cycles thru an overload condition .. i modified the power supply to eliminate the syncronous rectifier and replaced it with a single shottky diode .. dissapation goes up slightly but reliability goes up a lot .. i have written an article on this. if anyone needs it i will try to find it . ..

SOURCE: I cannot find hdtv channels on my viewsonic n1930w

Are you trying to get the HD signal from the roof antenna or from cable? when you set the tuner to scan for channels make sure it is set for 'CABLE' if you are on cable, or 'AIR' if using roof antenna.

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

Sounds like your power supply electrolytic caps are going bad.....or you have a small board break in one of the circuit connections that doesnt break until the unit warms up.

First, you can use a can of cold blast to check for that heat break. You need to be able to shoot the cold blast at small areas of the board to see when the unit comes back on..indicating the break was shrunk closed by the coldness of the spray. If the unit fails to come on....you can remove the power supply and replace the caps as a group *(recommended since when one is bad...the others are sure to follow)

Good luck and be careful. These power supplys produce high voltage for the backlight and have `110V AC running into them. Be very sure you are adept at handling live circuits or find someone with electronics skills who will work on the cheap!

SOURCE: viewsonic N1930W input menu missing

According to this image, the input you are looking for is marked 'G'.

You would then use the Input button on your remote control to select that option. The OSD does not support selection of the input.

Color settings for an older panasonic tv trying to adjust the color setting for this older panasonic tv, it seems the dark colors are really dark and there faces are really red. Model# CT-32g19j


This is not a projection set; but a picture tube set or CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) technology. If the set is working correctly you should be able to go into the menu and set the color, brilliance and contrast to get the right color and picture intensity. If the controls don't give you what is correct viewing it may be over age and need an adjustment of the internal chroma circuits - which may cost more than the set is worth since it is quite old. Hope this helsp.

My sharp 32c540 picture is dark since i bought it brand new 6 years ago.


You may just have to make a different kind of adjustment.

This is what is called a direct view or crt type TV.

Inside on the main board (see attached photo) is the "flyback" transformer.

Note the two little controls embedded in it----top one is focus--leave it alone.

Lower one is SCREEN and a very slight upwards or right adjustment will bring the overall brightness up.

You want to adjust it just till with brightness on set all the way up you have a normal picture.

Too much and you get excessive brightness and trace lines and or further too much shuts set off.

Some sets have two holes in back of cabinet and small tool can get in and adjust the LOWER or screen control and others the back has to be removed.

Lay set face down on padded surface, remove back screws and set upright---do not touch anything inside with set on when you make the adjustment--control is plastic and a plastic tool a good idea--I have used regular screwdriver but know what not to do.

Let me know if you have questions 98% chance just need the Master Screen bumped up a little bit.

Adjusting color/ user mode??


The TV will not let you set brightness, contrast, color or tint in the preset modes like Vivid, Movie, Standard etc. Look for a mode that says custom, user etc..

No picture


you may have turned down the screen control
It is the lower one on the flyback transformer
Just advance it enough to get the pix back. If you advance it too much it may get retrace lines in the pix or shut down.
turn very slowly.
Thanks Guy

Most PS2 games are dark and auto brightness controls will casue your LCD tv to brighten up automatically in response the dark video coming from PS2 games. I suggest you get into the menu settings of your TV and find a setting that will shut off the auto picture controls.

Dark picture (HELP)


Open up the back of the set but be very carefull. Notice a large black block with a large red wire that runs up to the picture tube. on one side of that large block where the thick red wire is comming out of are two controls, one should be marked focus or F and one should be marked screen or S. With the set operating normally and not touching anything else, slowly turn the control marked screen or S clockwish till the picture gets bright enough. If you go too bright the set will shut down or you see small thin white lines so back down on the control. then touch up the focus and your good to go. good Luck.

i dont know this exact model, but i can advice you based on a slightly diffrent model. i hope the solution will be valid for your model as well: TV is digital controlled and have to be adjusted via service menu except the external focus and screen on back of (flyback) high voltage transformer. This is one you can try: Need plastic allen or plastic small flat blade screwdriver to fit these. Focus is top, bottom is the screen that set the overall brightness. Before adjusting, go in menu: press menu once, select picture quality, I think number 4, press 2 for "preset..", press 2 again to select normal. Back out by pressing zero repeatedly. It may ask you to save new settings, select yes. If screen is adjusted too bright, picture look lousy (washed out) the blacks will light up (becomes grey, or visible lines) this means you have actual fault that prevents you to get decent pix, that when it is time to take it in for repair.
