Question about ViewSonic VA1912wb 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

No display on Viewsonic VA1912wb

My 3 year old VA1912, suddenly stopped working. I don't even see the OSD. Whenever I connect the monitor to my PC, it flashes few blurry lines for few seconds and then goes dark. If I refresh the resolution or any other settings, it behaves the same way. Meaning by, the moment it sees a new signal, it will flash few lines and goes dark.

I have tried changing the cable, drivers, plower cord etc, but no luck.

Your monitor sounds like it has gone bad. Cost for a repair is not worth it, a new one would be cheaper. Prices have gone down a lot in three years

I have 2 yrs old va1912 view sonic lcd monitor... when i open it the led light still green & it wont open

Hi, You probably have a fault on your inverter board which will prevent the backlights from turning on and illuminating the screen. If you are lucky it may only be 1 or 2 blown capacitors which are easy to replace.

Viewsonic VA1912 replacement lamp

Apparently there's a 3 year warranty on the back light of these monitors so you may be able to send it off to viewsonic.

Replacing the back light yourself is certainly possible, depending on how confident you are with taking electronic equipment apart. Sourcing such a replacement may not be easy and might also cost more than the monitor's worth.

If you do proceed, care should certainly be taken so as to not to expose yourself to a dangerous shock; if you're not sure what you're doing then probably best leaving it alone, maybe find a friendly local nerd. Leaving the unit unplugged for 24 hours would be an essential precaution.

A line of Dead Pixels.

You are right it is a stuck or dead pixel, usually if it is a colred line but not grey it is a stuck pixel at the beginning of the line you can try a utility designed to flash bright colors repetedly over time to see if this will "unstick" it. Also you could have a dry joint on your TCP which would require opening it up to diagnose.
