Question about ViewSonic VG1930WM LCD Monitor

3 Answers

Monitor problem I have a Hanns-G HN199D 19" LCD monitor, have had it for about three years now, and never had a single problem yet. I've always turned my monitor off when I sleep at night, or go out somewhere. But just recently, one morning I got up and turned my monitor on. And the green power light would flash but the monitor would never come on. It took it about 10 minutes to finally come back on. It's done it three times, and I've kept the monitor turned on now to prevent it from not coming back on. It's not in sleep mode, because sleep mode is a steady amber light. Green is power on, and my computer runs normally. I even hooked the monitor up to another computer and it did the same thing. Took it a while to come back on. I searched and can't find any fixes for this model monitor. Does anyone know why it's doing this and how to fix it short of getting a new monitor?

    Hi Max,

    I have the same monitor and it started having exactly the same problem as yours. It does seem that the problem is in the electronics, but I do not know where (yet).

    I have a Hanns-G HX191D and exactly the same - power light flashes green slowly, but screen never comes on. This happened after I turned the monitor off when I went away for a few days. Before that it had always been left on.

    I'll take it in for repair, as apart from buying another one I don't have much choice.

    Same here, after powering it down during a two week vacation, I came back and the blue and yellow flashes but it never comes on. Tried putting it on another pc, same results. Using another monitor both pcs work fine. Its the i-inc with the problem!

    As a IT Manager in a school we have 100 of the HX-191D HannsG monitors. And we've had to send quite a few back (body count is getting to 30 and climbing quickly). HannsG repairtech company are alright at switching them over but they never have enough stock to keep up with the faults. I have 15 monitors at my feet awaiting pick up.

    Just posting in here because I'm wondering if anyone knows a fix, or a way of getting hold of a technician at HannsG. Had a number of reports from within the school of people messing around with the power button and getting it to come back on.

    If anyone can be of any help please post a solution, just think of the children! Stephen Wills

I'm having same problem and can usually get it to come on after trying several things like control-alt-del followed by ESC, moving mouse, and hitting space bar and then waiting and it seems to come alive. A pain for sure!

Hey....the only way to know if the issue is with the monitor or the tower is to unplug ur so called faulty monitor from the tower and power and take to a different room and simply connect the power cord and turn it on....if it shows red, greee & blue box then that shows that your monitor is ok and the issue lies with your tower and vise-versa.....if monitor is faulty than better replace it rather than repairing it, however, repair it only if there is a fault with the connecting cable orelse throw it off....cheers

Honestly it sounds like something is going bad in the monitor (my guess would be either the main power supply or the backlight power supply) and you would either need to know electronics or know someone who knows about repairing electronics to fix the problem without replacing the monitor.

Monitor problem

Hi, I used to repair a monitor from Dell. You might have to check what wrong with your monitor when it went back by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem like broken lamps and it is very easy to replace. But the most important part is you need to know how to teardown the screen. . If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.

Hope this help you to examine your monitor. If there is anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,
