Question about Microsoft ChiMei CMV938D 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor

1 Answer

LCD SCREEN STAYS BLACK

This screen is a Viewsonic vx922. I had problems for a number of months where the computer would boot, but the screen stayed black. At first, if I left the computer off for a day or so without trying to boot, it would start up ok, the screen would show as normal. I thought it was the fault of the desktop, tested & replaced EVERYTHING, HD, RAM, Power Supply, CPU, Battery, Cables... none of these things made any difference. It was after this that I realised it was actually the screen, because it was the only component that had not been replaced. The problem at first was intermittent, and would eventually work fine, so it did not occur to me that it was the screen. Now it just stays black when I boot up. I have purchased another screen and all works well. The question I would like to ask is .. Is it worth getting it (the screen) fixed? Purely from a cost point of view.

Green light flashing on and off and computer screen will turn on when feels like it


The flashing green power button is a well known electronic problem with this (and other) Viewsonic LCD monitors. There is YouTube video (do a search) showing how to disassemble the VX924 (very similar to the VX922) and find out whether the problem is related to blown capacitors. When I took my VX922 apart I discovered 6 bad capacitors out of a total of 7 on the power supply circuit board.

No image on monitor


Looks like the Video card, or Video chip has bought the farm
Try hooking up to another monitor to confirm where the problem is.

Two problems vx922 Black screen of Death and vx910 no power


You may want to tey another computer or another cable or update your video card drivers. Otherwise look very closely and see if you are able to see a very faint image of your background picture or icons if you have any.

Really im not kidding it might be a backlight issue.

Viewsonic VX922 - black screen of death and the blinking (mocking!) green led


Really if this happens then you may want to contact viewsonic to see if it still in warrant. Reminder that most of their monitors have a 3 year warrany from the date of purchase. So make sure that you have your proof of sales/receipt/POP/invoice or what ever you want to call it ready. This model is old so they will ask for it if its a first time repair.

Viewsonic VX922 19" Green Light Blinks when booted, no picture


I have the same problem with my VX922 as do MANY others. The problem seems to be caused by leaking/bulging capacitors on the circuit board. The only solution is to replace the faulty capacitors either on your own (which is fairly easy if you're good with a soldering iron) or send it to Viewsonic and have them fix it.

Viewsonic Monitor problem, blinking LED light, no picture.


you guys......you don't have a software (driver, refresh rate, etc.) problem. When you first power up the monitor, do you get any display at all (ex, "analog input" or "No input signal")? Of course not - that's because you have a hardware problem with the monitor. Go here and watch the youtube video on how to take apart your monitor and find and replace the "domed" capacitors that have blown:

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/247964-33-viewsonic-vx922-monitor-black-screen-green-power-light-flashes

Fortunately I only had 1 ($1.76 at Radio Shack). I replaced it in less than 30 minutes and my monitor showed "no input signal" upon powerup as expected because I wasn't connected to my pc which is full of all kinds of drivers and refresh settings, etc.
