Viewsonic crt monitor support

My viewsonic monitor stopped functioning and started to emit a burning smell. I checked with their online support and was instructed to email them about the problem. I did this THREE times, and at one week later, still have not heard from them! I tried several times to contact them by phone and was put on hold for an interminably long time.
I called CompUSA, the store that sold it to me, but they just told me to call Viewsonic.
The monitor is still under warranty, but what good is that if I cannot contact them! Could you suggest a more productive way to do this?

Take it to the store and request an exchange. If they refuse tell them you will contact the BBB or Atty's General and file a complaint. If it was sold with a warranty and is still valid with proof of purchase they should honor regardless. These guys are just doing there jobs at the store level and I'm sure you can get it rectified.

MIcrowave emits an electrical smell while cooking. It still cooks, but has started emitting an odor recently when in use.


Is the smell ionized (the outside smell of a cold winter morning air) or more of an electronic component burning??? if it's more of an ionized smell it could be normal, (if the smell is strong) it could be a leaking high voltage cable (electric arching) bad insulator, if it's more of an electronic component burning smell, it could be a overheating component, in both cases you should have it checked by a professional technician...

Cheers!

My monitor is making a electronic sort of distortion noise (sizziling). Anyway to rectify it?


Check the security of the power cord and look for damage to the plug and moulded plug, see the pins are in tight, vheck the plug socket on the monitor to see the reccieving pins are not bent or damaged.

After that, the issue lies in a short or developing short on the board, if you notice any smell (burning plastic ), you should stop using it and get it tested and repaired

After using the monitor for more than 20 minutes eyes become watery and burning sensation starts. I am afraid if it causes heavy radiation. ...


CRT screens emit low levels of electromagnetic radiation, mainly from the back of the monitor. LCD a lot less emit less electromagnetic radiation. The backlight from a LCD screen is provided by a CCFL lamp, this is a very small fluro tube about 2mm in diameter compared with a 20-25mm normal fluro tube.
I do not think the LCD is the cause of your problem, I suggest you consult with an EYE specialist about your problem.
