Question about ViewSonic N3251w 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Viewsonic n3251w went bezerk!

I was playing with my ps3 when out of nowhere the sound started to go up until it reached max. Then i tried lowering it with the remote and still went up. I took the batteries out of the remote to check if it was a bad contact in the remote and it would still do the same thing. I turned it off and would not come back on. I unplugged it and replugged it. it came back on but started that volume frenzy again. Where should I start looking?

The button board or the IR board in the TV. A stuck button can cause some strange behavior. Typically, the TV has 3 control lines: POWER BUTTON, FUNCTION BUTTONS, IR (Remote). Try disconnecting the button board, it should have a connector right on the board. If that fixes it, you can leave it that way or try to find a replacement board (not sure where you should look). If it's the IR board and the button board is daisy-chained through it, you will need to either replace it or repair it. Most often the little receiver is bad when there is a problem with this type of board. You may be able to find a Receiver IC, but just know that it has to match the TV. I hope this was helpful and points you toward your destination. Best wishes.

Sound issues when connected to PS3 with HDMI


I don't think you can hook a PS3 to 350W projector. You are maxing out the PS3 output. Good luck with it

Volume at max and won't go down


This sounds like a common problem on these TVs. Try a factory reset:

1. Press and hold "Menu" and "Channel+" on the TV. (do not use the remote)
2. Using the other hand, press the Power button.
3. A small screen should appear in the top left part of the screen.
4. Using the remote, select "Memory Recall" and Enter.
5. Power off and reboot the TV and Computer.
6. Run channel auto-scan to regain the picture.

My PS3 was playing great the other night (playing Modern Warfare) and out of nowhere it turned off on me with the red light blinking. I tried to turn it on and the red light went solid like it normally...


It sounds like you have the dreaded Ylod its a common issue, Try resetting the system which works once in every systems,

If that does not work then you will most likely need to replace the Power supply, if your uncomfortable opening it,

Look on craigslist to see if there are any local repair shops in your area, that is uaually a 60 dollar fix on average but depends where you live.

Try this : When you put your ps3 on, hold the power button on the front of the console until it beeps 2 times, then the screen should start flashin and after that u'll get the chance to choose what resolution u want and so on.

When you hold down the power button like this, the screen goes back to default. Should fix your problem!

Play station 3 dvd remote pairing instructions.


OK I FIGURED IT OUT!!! First turn off the system(ps3) make sure that you take the batteries out of the remote. Then when you turn it back on go straight to system setting, setting accessories, setting blue tooth device. AND THEN IT WILL TELL YOU TO HOLD DOWN THE START AND ENTER BUTTON DOWN!. Don't forget to put the batteries back into the remote. It took like 3 seconds.
