    We run our N4060W 24 hrs a day! The original one lasted about 6 mos, and now this refurbished one that was replaced under warranty, has done the very same thing! A very faint blue screen, no menu, no video, but good sound. The buttons on the right side don't always work now, either

    I have the same issue. Did you find a fix for this?

  • I found 3 1000µ power supply caps that were bulging and measured less than 250µ each. I thought that I found the problem, but no change. I have no idea what the various power supply outputs are. The back light is on, but there is no video at all. The channels will change and there is audio. I can't find a schematic or a service manual. Viewsonic has some parts on their site, but the service manual isn't for sale???

    We bought a Viewsonic N4060W LCD set eighteen months ago and last night the very same thing happened to us.
    No video at all, NOT EVEN a menu screen or any other images at all.
    You CAN tell that the set is turned on because there is audio and pilot light, AND you can tell that the screen is showing video "black" because it does NOT look like the set is OFF.
    But it does not show any picture at all.
    To pay this kind of money for a set and to get burned like this is unbelievable.
    Naturally it's out of warranty at 18 months.

    I have had one of my 4 N4060Ws fail a few months back and now two more dropped within 2 weeks of each other the latest was yesterday. Can you say class action suit?

    Yes I'm almost a year beyond default 1yr (bogus) warranty.

    I have the same problem - N4060w responds to buttons & remote. I can change inputs and hear corresponding sound. There is no video display, however, the the backlight is on. I had this TV for about 2 years with no problems, until this....

  • comicstars Nov 05, 2008

    I notice that there's two main defects with this TV, 1st one is yours, the picture will go out but you still hear the sound. The TV still turns on though.

    The 2nd is the other type of problem that i'm having, the TV will not turn on, when you press the power button on either the Remote or from TV all that happens is the green light will blink once.

    I am having the sam eproblem in Maryland with my Viewsonic....I cannot stand their customer service dept...they are clueless.

  • Anonymous Mar 17, 2009

    JAYWARDLTS I looked at but all they had was the owner manual for the n4060w.
    If you can find where to buy the inverter board for that set and you are in North Texas I'll bring the darn set to you and pay you to fix it.

Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find. If the tech installed a used power supply, it may be bad also. 3 years are typical for capacitors to go bad.

ViewSonic LCD (VA1912w) Went Blank

I am using this great LCD for about an year. But few times in the past my LCD didnt show up the display though the Green light was still ON, turning off the LCD and opening it again always solved the problem.

I am just seeing a blank screen with green light ON. and ya theres a very low hissing sound coming from the LCD.

Viewsonic n4060w power but no menu or source selection....

hello, you will need to locate a service manual for it.
cd or downloaded it costs a few dollars but it is worth it.
if your going to open it might as well know what to check for.
you need it to service your set.
not processing signal, menu not displaying,
sound like internal board issues.

good luck hope this helps

Cracked lcd on viewsonic n4060w

Ultimately repairing the screen is up to you, LCD's are not cheap.

If you decide not to repair it, I'd be interested in the boards off yours.
You can by mine, (LCD) is in good shape.

ViewSonic NextVision N4060w 40 in. LCD TV, will not turn on.

While this isnt an exact fix at work, you will at least be able to view your tv. We have one at work that would do nothing when you hit the power on button, just the usual geen led flashing. We pulled the cover off and found the bulging caps, more than likely from brown outs. But we also found that none were holding a charge. So we held the power button on for at least five min, after the led would stay on for about 30 sec and then turn off. We kept hitting the power button and the screen would try to come on. It finally did. After it did come one we can power on and power off aslong as we dont turn it off for more than 10 min. After 10 min of it being off we have hold down power button again and start the whole process again. So the main problem i believe is the caps arent holding a charge, to be able to kick the high voltage circuit on. We did not replace any caps but if we do end up changing parts will post what was changed and cost. Hope this helps

Viewsonic n4060w I was changing my chanel from the console, then the screen went blank. I can hear sound. I try to view the menu or sources but nothing. I can turn the tv on and it lights up a little but still cannot see anything. First, I had trouble with turning the TV on/off -- I could turn it on from the unit, but had to turn it off on the remote. Then, the on-screen menus started going haywire in that, as soon as you pressed the menu button, the TV would automatically quickly go through all menus on its own -- so fast, that you couldn't stop it. I had a local TV repairman come and he said that it was either the board for the TV's control buttons, and/or the main board -- which I guess is the inverter board(?). He ordered both from Viewsonic (apparently, anyway), and voila! TV started working again... but only for a week. The new problem was that it wouldn't turn on at all now. So they ordered a replacement for the two boards AND a new power supply. Lo-and-behold, he got a garbled mess to display with the new boards before he put in a new power supply, and deduced that the power supply was not the problem (and returned it). So, he said the new main board that was sent was defective, and ordered another. Today they came and attempted to put in the newly arrived main board, and it was missing capacitors (and, obviously, the TV is not working still). So, they are ordering another. I just sent him a link to an on-line store who had some parts available, one of which it claims is video board for an N4060W. Holding my breath now, I guess. Viewsonic is a nightmare!
