Question about ViewSonic VX910 19" LCD Monitor
This morning my computer was off, but it was actually my monitor. It won't come on...all it does is the power button blinks on and off button blinking and no display. Help please.
Look at the main power board. Near the black plug that goes to the audio board you will see a round metal disk with the number 100 on the top. This is a 100uf capacitor. In all likelyhood this is the problem. We recently had 12 go bad at work and we fixed 10 of them by replacing this cap with a $1.29 electrolytic cap from Radio Shack (this cap looks different but works the same). Just remkove the old one and surface solder this one in (pay attention to polarity +leg to + mark on board;)

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.

This LCD monitor is known to die because of heat. I forgot if theese were 100 UF or 1000uf. Take the monitor apart first and then check for the capacitors. They should look a bit werid and buldging out. THoose are teh bad ones. You should get teh uf value correct. Voltage can go higher but no lower. Get the 105 Degrees Celcious capacitors. Choose a good brand such as rubycon , nichon, etc... Google will help you decide. Go to small hobbist electronic stores or radio shack. In vancouver Lees Electronics on 31 and main has a good selection.

I've researched this problem quite a bit and from all I've read, it's a bad power supply. The power supply is faulty and needs to be sent back to viewsonic to be repaired under warranty... shipping for me was about $65 :(
I have a friend that is into electronics, I'll ask him about this capacitor business. Is there a specific voltage of capacitor that needs to be put in the place of the "100uf" one? Are there any other specifications I might want to pay attention to when picking out the capacitor?

I have the same problem, it seems like its overheating. Unplugging it untill it has cooled down is the only solution i can come up with. Its really strange since it calims to only use 40W but still gets so warm.

Same situation for me with VX910, light blinking as if monitor has gone to sleep. The only solution, so far, has been to unplug monitor power for a few hours, and then plug it back in. Not really a fix, but a doable workaround for now.
This has happened three times now, and each time requires the same unplugged waiting period. Did ViewSonic or Microsoft 'update' a driver recently? If so, their bad...

Try to connect your monitor to another PC, if it does the same thing, then your inverter board is bad, or backlight is blown. I can only be definte if you try to connect it to another PC. Let me know! Please!
