Question about ViewSonic VX710 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor will not turn on

This Viewsonic VX710 LCD monitor will not turn on. The LED light blinks repeatly and the very slight noise the monitor makes on initial startup repeats over and over again. Nothing is displayed on the screen even without the video cable pluged in. With a previous post about this issue it may be safe to assume this is a pattern faliure. Any assistance on this would be great. Also, I have already checked for broken solder joints on the switch board and checked for loose/broken wires for the switchboard harness.

It could be bad caps on the power supply. Look for bulging caps and replace them if bad.

My viewsonic vx710 lcd monitor shuts off after @ a hour of operation then won't come on for @15 minutes


Check the power supply section first.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed VIEWSONIC monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Viewsonic VX710 17" Flat Panel Display. It turns on and after 1 or 2 Seconds shuts the backlight off L.E.D. satys on but the backlight won't comeback on. No cap seems to be blown up.


Failed cap amy not show any sign of bulging or leaking, it can still have high ESR. You can also have components failure in the inverter circuits such as shorted inverter transformer driver transistors, open or short winding (DC Ohm test will not show shorted turn, need to use ringer test), I use SENCORE LC75 for testing, bad lamps or bad soldering works on the lamps. See http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums for some guide.

You may have bad transformers, need to be checked, DC Ohms meter may not be enough, need to use inductor tester (I use Sencore LC75). You can also have bad lamps (bad solder connections). The caps may not have any sign of bulging but can have high ESR, see some pictures here for guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Will not come on. I have checked both the cables (power and computer)and they are ok. When pressing the power button the green light in it flickers slightly but monitor will not come on.


remove the cable from the back of the computer with the monitor and computer turned on. If it gives you a no signal error either the cable or your graphics card inside the computer needs to be replaced.
