    Thanks Cindy for the prompt response, however unfortunately, the screen flickers for one second and goes black, nothing can be seen on the screen afterwards, as if it is a power issue, I think.

    I orderd the inverter board from shopjimmy.com and replaced it, and that did it. Thanks everyone for your support!

This could be a problem with the tv's memory. Try resetting the TV. Unplug the unit for a few seconds (10-60). Then restore the TV to the factory default settings. Viewsonic has changed it's menus at intervals so you may have to check your manual. It may be Menu > Setup > Memory Recall or Menu > Options > Restore Default (or something slightly different). From there, click enter, use the right or left arrow to select YES, hit enter. Leave the menu system (Menu twice). Then hit Menu > Channels and rescan all channels.

An alternative cause of the problem may be a weak signal - check that your antenna is pointing right at the station and is the correct type to get the signal at the distance you are from the station. (Usually a weak signal would also have the audio breaking up but weird things can happen.)

I hope this helps.

Remove the TV from the power for a few minutes, and then power on, then check the volume, effectively you have reset the set. If it still will not work, check the manual for any sleep settings etc, and work through the setup again for the channels. Now if none of that works, and it isn't a remote control issue? Then unfortunately you indeed have a problem with the set and it will need to be serviced. it will most likely be a microprocessor and ambient background noise sensor or the like, this will have to be replaced. To this end get a "Quote" from a certified repairer, and go from there?

Viewsonic N3250w. Power supply went out and I replaced the bad capacitors. TV worked for a week then now when I turn it on, the screen just turns on and off


Check to see if the 24vdc disappear when the screen black out, it is always there then you have problem in the backlight inverter board. Did you replace the caps in the 24vdc supply also? I replace the whole set.

ViewSonic N3250w has black line


Unfortunately, my experience with LCDs says that when you see something like this, it usually indicates that the LCD screen is cracked. If you press gently in the area of deformity and it goes clear then returns to black when you remove pressure, it's a tell-tale sign of a cracked screen. Go to e-bay and see if you can get a replacement screen if you're mechanically up to changing it yourself, else an electronics repair shop might be your only hope.
