    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.

When turned on screen is black but you can view menu and stored pictures

Since you can see the menus, did you try to go to the setup menu, and adjust the brightness of the screen?
It is in the setup menu, the line under Sound settings. Try to make the display brighter and don't forget to ok that one, because otherwise nothing will be changed. OK with the ok / Func button.

No picture or sound

I know this set pretty well, in fact I think I have the service manual on disc---have about 200 of these sets on disc. I can make some suggestions if you have some mechanical skill etc, I never know how much a person has who posts a question here.

I suspect this set might have a common problem---I would have to dig the disc out to be sure----some of these have a small blue High voltage cap that pops (you might not hear it go) and with it goes a pico fuse---its 2 amp and it will among some other things kill the set except for the power light.

If you have a working remote also call up Menu to see if on screen menu is working, if it shows the cap mentioned is good.

Also you can try one of the rear inputs with a vcr or DVD to see if picture that way.

Let me know if I can help.

My playstation3 will turn on looks like it is working but my tv screen is blank nothing comes up


Try to reset the video settings on the PS3 and also make sure the cables are all attached and that you have the TV on the correct input source.

Turn the PS3 off so the red light is on. Hold down the power button on the PS3 until you hear a beep. Release the power button and press it again.
That should have reset the video settings so you will be able to set the video settings again on the other TV and access the PS3 menu to set it up.

If there is anything else please post back.

Wii menu will not come on when power is turned on.

Do you hear any sound when you power the console on? I assume it used to work fine? Try disconnecting all cables from the back of the Wii, waiting about 90 seconds, reattach all cables and power on. Does the power light go to green?

Swicthed on tv and its a blank it wont switch off.

Can you see the menus on the screen?
Can you hear audio (sound)?
If you can hear sound but no menu we need to check the backlight.
Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen, look very closely at the screen.
Do you see a video image?

Let me know what happens, I can assist further.

Blue screen with sound but nothing else!

I, too, acquired a Phillips without a manual and was experiencing a similar problem. My model is PTV 916, but if your TV has a "source select" button, say a prayer and press the button. From that point, I don't know what else I did, but I do get TV programs now.

No picture on tv screen.

Had the same problem. When I turned on the console, the screen went a bit fuzzy at first and then remained blank. There was no sound either, but I could still turn it off with the controller. I checked all the connections and even plugged it into another T.V. I have now discovered the problem! The scart connector which came with the PS3 wasn't working properly. Didn't have the prob before because I wasn't using it. Hope that this helps. If not, try holding the power button down for a few seconds after turning on the system. You'll hear a beep noise and the system will try to adjust its AV output or something. Worth a try anyway.

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!
