You have to remove the base at the bottom (4 screws), all the screws on the back, then use a thin flat-head screwdriver or other thin brybar and work around the back panel unlatching the snaps that are in place.

After the back cover is off, the metal cover over the board and power supply can be removed by removing the screws around the outside lip of the cover, along with the screws on the bottom and right hand lip of the raised area in the back.

Hope this helps.

    I completely recommend the household butter knife for prying open the back. It left much less damage than the flat head screwdriver.

    I completely recommend the use of kitchen butter knifes as pry bars to get the back off. They seemed to leave much less damage and give much better leverage on my 32" model after nearly four years of reliable service.



There are 4 screws and many clips all around, with a flat head screwdriver you can pry them open and just keep holding it open while you pry the clips open around the TV. Should come off with no plm.

Won't turn on

Lots of power supply issues with Viewsonics. Out of warranty? Open up the back and have a look at the power supply if you know something about electronics, otherwise, call a repair shop.

I was away for 2 days , came home and there is NO power to my Viewsonic

Check outlet, then 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.

Viewsonic N3251w 32inch LCDTV that does not have

It's most likely a capacitor. Open up your television, and look at your power circuit board. Look to see if any of the capacitors are blown.(the will be bulging look up an image of a blown capacitor to get a better image if not known already. Mine was (CS19, CS21, CS22, CS23) Also on (C672) from the Circuit Board.Can you look at the voltages of these for me? I'm missing the capacitors.

Viewsonic n3251w will no longer display Closed Captions

You can reset your viewsonic remote control by removing the batteries, and holding the power button down for 10 seconds. Just 10 minutes ago I repaired my remote, which was doing absolutely nothing, not even turning the set off and on, Called Viewsonic, they told me this, and it worked ! Yay !
