Question about ViewSonic NextVision N1700w (Black, Metallic) 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

ViewSonic N1700w with Black stripe on right side of display

The LCD monitor after warming up has a Vertical White 2" wide bar (stripe) on the far right side of screen. The 2" stripe then will flicker from white to black. Then the 2" stripe will go to all black and stay that way.
If I tap the top of the screen or pinch the palstic together sometimes the display will return to normal, but then starts to flicker again a few moments later. Please Help !

Sounds to me that you have a bad connection/wire to the CCFL bulb on that side of the display. Should be an easy fix, do it your selfer thing.

Any advice on what board I should replace if the left half of the screen is no good, just showing white and black vertical bars? Right half is fine. Is the panel kaput?

ViewSonic VA1926w monitor dims darker when there's dark content on the screen. I have 2 of these monitor connected to a Pro Mac. Only the right side monitor does this.

Its the dynamic contrast ratio (DCR) that dims the display when dark images are displayed.
For my VA1926w, pressing the right most button (up arrow), enables or disables DCR. Keep this disabled.

It may sound strange but be absolutely sure the cable is plugged into the monitor. Adapter on the computer. The serial adapter on the back looks just like video. Video actually has a faintly noticeable monitor icon rigtht next to it. Plugging into a serial can eventually blow out your monitor. Also, a.badcable can do the same thing. And if you have messed up the monitor's settings you will see the same

Monitor displays wide vertical stripes/bands

That is the symptom of failed T-CON board (part of the LCD panel assembly, new panel will be needed), you can try reseating the ribbon connector on the LCD panel first.

It probably isn't worth repairing as the cost will exceed what you would spend on replacing it.
