Question about ViewSonic VP171s 17" LCD Monitor

Open Question

Strange colours on VP171s monitor, plus flickering

We have replaced two fuses in our monitor in the last two months.

Today, when we turned on the PC, our screen saver (which was a largely grey picture), is now displaying in lurid pinks, purples and blues, and the screen is flickering. On Windows programmes, our screen bars (title, scroll, etc)have become bright lime green (and the title bar has vertical lines of other colours, some flickering running across it), and when we go on the web, some images and text are unreadable as the backgrounds colours are flickering and too dark, and other images are flickering.

Is it dead?

SOURCE: 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.

Samsung HLP5085W DLP - lamp replaced about 7 months ago. I powered up TV and got strange colors with flickering picture. Turned unit off and triangle symbol appears with lamp showing - needs replacement....


Strange colors and flickering picture symptom shows problem with color wheel and/or dmd board.
Lamp is only light source in dlp tv and it has nothing with colors or picture flicker.
TV goes to protection mode because of some internal problem as mentioned above.
If you wish to repair tv by yourself then you should have service manual copy in hand and that can be downloaded from HERE for small fee.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Viewsonic vp171s lcd flickers on start up then goes black.


This is typical of a back-light problem, especially when you view the LCD screen at a sharp angle and you see a dim Windows image. This fault is caused by either a faulty inverter board or a faulty CCFL lamp.
The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. the CCFL lamp is a mini fluro lamp which fails with age and use.
This LCD screen can be repaired, the cost of an inverter board and CCFL lamp is a lot cheaper than a new LCD screen, but this is an opportunity/excuse to buy a larger size LCD screen as these monitors have dropped in price.

Monitor won't start when I boot up - without a lot of fiddling!


First try to do monitor self test.Disconnected the blue cable VGA or white colour connector from monitor to the computer. Turn on the monitor and check if you are able to see colours or line on the monitor.Indicating self test monitor is working fine. If you are using Video card on computer connect monitor directly to onboard video and check. Good Luck.

Sounds like you have a video card problem. If it works on someone elses PC and not yours. Replacing this video card on your PC should fix it..

Computer monitor flickers


Sounds like the lcd ribbon might have come loose. Or the lcd screen itself needs to be replaced. I have included a link here. The website shows detailed pictures about how to access the parts needed to fix this problem.

The ribbon i'm speaking of is just like the vga cable you use on a normal monitor. Since there is a limited amount of space in notebooks they turned this thick cable into a small flat ribbon.

Try to look and make sure all the connections are tight and as they should be. If nothing changes you will have to change the LCD display.
