Question about ViewSonic VA520 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Starts up looking good then in 3 minutes, all hell...

I just got this Usd on Ebay, was told it works. After 3 or so minutes it starts getting full of jumping, flashing black lines, blurs out, flickers on and off, colors mess up etc..I tried leaving it on to "warm up", and turning it on and off a few times, It always starts and holds a great picture, then.....probably broken and a pain to send back, but Ive never had one so maybe theres a solution. Thanks anyone!

Go to the ViewSonic site and read through their knowledge base on your monitor.

Then once you familiarize yourself with electronics safety by reading through a basics manual once or five times, and once you've got it, open up the monitor cold and/or hot, and find out where they spilled Coca-cola down the back or whatever might be suggested by the ViewSonic knowledge base.  Lather, rinse, repeat; when the monitor acts right, then stop.

I want to change my password to avoid hacking as noted recently.

1) Login to your eBay account.
2) select "Contact us".
3) select "call" eBay.
4) Get a call reference number and dial them.

Let the third-world nation CSRs explain why a simple task like "change password" is buried many-levels-deep in their incredibly inane user interface. Good luck dealing with these types... it's a living hell.

The jackaroo will idle only, if you touch accelerator pedal at all, it over fuels real bad and misses, least it starts but it won't run past an idle, it then misses and backfires real

  • 1999 Olympic Jackaroo V6 3.5L. This vehicle has now travelled some 366,000 kms. Ok so it is now 14 years old and few bits are wearing out. First the EGR and now MAF sensor and the MAP Sensor (?) - replaced both as a P0101 code is a little non specific. Now these parts are amazingly expensive locally - quote from Holden for the MAF was $350 and other sources anything from $150 up 2nd hand. The MAP was more reasonable at around $100+.
    Do yourself a favour and check out sourcing parts from the USA. The Jackaroo was sold in the USA under various brands including Isuzu Trooper. Also get yourself a copy of the workshop manual and Scangauge to help with diagnosing problems and improve your fuel economy by retraining your LEADfoot.
    A couple of sources in the USA that you may find helpful: [MAF sensor - MF8302]
    and [MAP sensor - AS60]
    Both companies will answer questions and confirm compatibility of parts by email - 24 hour turnaround in my experience.
    You can use the vehicle compatibility function on their web sites to check whether the part is compatible - Use "1999" "Isuzu" "Trooper"
    Now the good news and the bad news, the good news is that the parts cost in USD$54 for the MAF and USD$9.95 for the MAP postage was $44.10 and USD$19.99 respectively. The bad news is it will take a week or two for the parts to arrive. If desperate you can pay extra postage for expedited shipping.
    In any event you will be much better off in your hip pocket.
    Fitting the parts will take you about 10 minutes to swap over and that will save you at least $120 with current mechanic rates. You will need a large phillips head and straight edge screwdriver for the MAF and a 10mm socket for the MAP - most of us have those!
    So you can spend around $600 locally or you can spend less than $150 for the parts including postage (and $99 for the Scanguage on off) and fit them yourself.
    I hope the above is useful for another Jackaroo Owner - they really are an incredibly well built vehicle and if you look after 'Jacky' she will look after you.

    I want to know how much the price at market

    It depends on the model, make and pixels etc. It can vary from USD 100.00 to USD 1000.00. Choice is yours. You can get outdated models or used cameras for less than USD 100.00. Go to amazon .com, ebay and look for cameras which can fit your budget and requirements.

    I have whirlpool gas water heater sg1j5040t3nov. It is blinking 6 times which says upper sensor failure. Is this something we can fix. Please advise.

    Called whirlpool and explained the problem. They said I need to replace that upper sensor and so they sent me a part in the mail which cost roughly $25. (usd) not including the overnight shipping which is around another $25 or so. This picture is what I received in the mail. Comes with directions of installment. _273.jpg

    I have a Sanyo DP42746 and it is about 3 years old. Yesterday the picture went out, but the sound still worked. It went off for a minute and then came back on. It is starting to get worse in that it is...

    For what it's worth, you can download the official Sanyo repair manual for this TV (DP42746) at I uploaded it here when I had the same issue with my TV last year.
    The solution is almost always to replace the Power Board (Y-Main) and the Upper and Lower Y Buffers. The parts and costs (from Sanyo in July 2009) are listed below (NOTE: Sanyo will not ship these parts to anyone but a repair shop):
    1. V4 Y-Main (Y-Sustain) Circuit Board (Part # LJ92-01200A, Alt Part # LJ41-02759A) - USD $139.00
    2. Upper Y-Buffer Circuit Board (Part # LJ92-01202A, Alt Part # LJ41-02760) - USD $64.00
    3. Lower Y-Buffer Circuit Board (Part # LJ92-01203A, Alt Part # LJ41-02761A) - USD $64.00

    Sanyo charges USD $10.50 for shipping, which brings the total cost for parts to USD $277.50. From my research, a shop would probably charge between USD $500 and $700 to do this repair.
    FYI - there is a class action lawsuit pending against Sanyo for this issue. The V4 Y-Main (Y-Sustain) Circuit Boards fail VERY frequently in this TV due to overheating. Hope this helps.
