Question about ViewSonic VP2000s 20.1" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Viewsonic VP2030b takes 5-10 minutes to start

It began gradually over the past six or so months, with the screen taking longer and longer to power up and display any signal after pressing the power button. Now it has come down to almost a 10 minute wait if powered on after being off during the night and I really can't stand it any longer.

Once it is running fine you can turn it off and on however you like, but if it stays off for a few minutes it will take longer to start again. Which components can act in this way and needs to be replaced? I'm thinking a capacitor that is sloooowly being brought to life or so. I read something about fuses but I don't think that's the case since a blown fuse would make the monitor not start at all, right?

While it is "booting" the little LED power indicator flickers very very weakly with a green/orange kind of spark deep down inside the LED almost only visible in a completely dark room. While turned on and not having a signal, the LED is orange like it's supposed to and green when it's finally on and displaying a signal.

I've had the monitor for more than three years now and apart from this problem it has been the best monitor I've ever had.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Open the monitor, examine the circuit boards. Look for small components that look like small cans, these are capacitors. If you see any that look bulged on top, then your problem can probably be solved by replacing these. Check out the following sites;

Follow the directions and good luck!

SOURCE: Viewsonic VP2030b LCD monitor - No power

There should be one fuse in the power supply inside. You can check and replace that if its dead. now if its not dead and you got power to that point you do need to rule out any capcitors at that time but if the fuse is gone it will not hurt to check the rest of the supply for the fault.

hi

try rebooting the system (i think its F8, to get to SAFEMODE) . in DESKTOP , right click and go to PROPERTIES, go to SETTINGS, go SCREEN RESOLUTION and take the arrow to the left ; set to 640x800 and and take the color setting to 256 drop down . hopefully this works after rebooting the system. if it doesnt, it may sound like the inverter card may be bad (PC bourd that connectes to the screen : this requires a service technician)

good luck !

Screen will not come on


If your screen is taking that long to turn it is a hardware issue with the screen and I would suggest contacting the manufacturer and try having them repair it at 18 months it still may be under warranty.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,
