Question about ViewSonic VX924 19" LCD Monitor

3 Answers

Blinking On/Off.. seems to be a common problem.

I've had this monitor for about a year and a half, and haven't had any problems with it up until yesterday. All of a sudden the monitor turns off, turns back on, and continues to do this. The green power button light turns off and on with the monitor. I only get a split-second flash of the screen before it turns back off, making it completely unusable.

This seems to be a huge problem with this model. A few solutions I read mentioned replacing capacitors inside the monitor. Has this worked for anybody at all? Would I have any luck taking it to a computer repair store, or should I just buy a new monitor?

    Same problem here and it's getting worse..(lost counting at 600 "blinks")
    My Viewsonic is bought in january 2006 so unfortunately the warrant for
    vx series is out of date.(purchased before the 1st of April 2008 = 2 years)
    Someone mentioned that the inverter board (whatever this is) could be the problem. I've e-mailed Viewsonic Europe (where I live) but haven't got an answer. I wonder: is it worth take the monitor to a repair shop or
    is there a market for this kind of spare parts and is it possible to fix?

    Same problems here. There seem to be more and more blinks until my monitor stabilizes as time goes on....

    Any solutions yet?

    I have a VS10162 and it seems to be showing the same behavior. I am using an older analog video card. The problem is getting slowly and progressively worse. A newer card (presumably with higher output voltage) seemed to help, but I still get the issue when adjusting display resolution settings (when the display goes off it does not always come back on). I figured out that by holding the power button down when lighted, I can coerce the monitor back on.

    Yeah I posted the similar problem about my monitor.

    I wish I had someone repair that for me for free LOL since mine isn't covered by warrenty. I am afraid to open up my monitor to make it "worse"

    So I have no idea or why the monitor stops showing the normal colors!

I replaced the two 470 uF capacitors on the power supply inside the monitor. They were puffed up / burst. Now it works great.

Just replaced the large cap (100uF @ 400V) and problem has disappeared ! It was in fact open circuit. Nice to have it stop flashing ! :-) Stu

I just replaced ALL of the Electrolytic Capacitors (6 in all) on my bad VX924 P/S, and it did not help. Several of the old caps were puffed-up/burst. I am ordering a new power MOSFET, Q320, if successful I'll be back in touch.

I've been having multiple problems with my 1998 dodge caravan, and was wondering if the cause of all of them would be from the moisture that's getting into the brain box?

I suggest you get another unit as the water or moisture in the box will not be helping at all. In all your fault codes if it is the box you would have had a fault code that includes the cpu as a source of the fault.

Canon SD1300 memory card locked

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. But, if you've checked the slide switch, the internal switch in the card slot may be jammed by a grain of sand or gunk. Here are troubleshooting steps for this problem. Recommend the toothpick fix for your particular problem.

My monitor MAG lcd 16inch turn black i change all the capacitor 6 pcs 470uF 25 volt same problem again help me Thank you

In case you haven't done it already, please connect the monitor to the computer and turn everything on and let it boot up. While the screen is black, take a flashlight and carefully hold it against the screen. If you can see that the LCD portion of the screen is working, then continue reading. This model seems to have a number of complaints against it. That being said, many people seem to believe that caps become swollen just because that's what they do. In my experience, for multiple caps to swell or need replacing, it takes a long duration over-current event or a short duration death event. The most common long duration over-current event in a monitor is burned bulbs and/or burned transformer. The most common short duration death event being a power surge (blackouts, lightning, or connected to the same breaker as an air conditioner or microwave) If you have successfully replaced the caps, then you already show some technical prowess. Search your main board model number for some more info. If you can read the tiny part numbers on the transformer, search for a datasheet to find a way to test it with a meter. Bulbs are a bit harder to do. I've done it, but it is almost impossible to keep even a single speck of dust from entering the insides. If you get to the bulbs, and they are blackened on the ends, you can be fairly certain that they are burned and creating an over-amp condition in the driver circuits. Best of luck to you.

I'm with you on this. You have every right to be concerned and I understand your concern. I've been working/repairing Hyundai Vehicles for over 7 years now, and I can assure you that whenever Hyundai Motor America/Manufacturing detects a 'COMMON' problem, they will NOT STOP until they have a PERMANENT fix for the issue/problem AND WILL NOT STOP until they have VERIFIED that fix. I have been repairing vehicles for more than 40 years now, I am confident the problem you have has been communicated to everyone at Hyundai at all levels and if they haven't already found the problem and corrected it, they are working diligently to find the cause of the problem and are correcting it.

Blinking power LED


It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. If your problem is not the capacitors then it would be the backlights and that is much more difficult to replace.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Moniter won't turn on/power light blinks green

Yeah, I called Dell yesterday, and they said it was a problem that I could not fix myself. Whether that's true or not, I don't know, but my monitor was still under warranty, so they shipped me a replacement right away. I already got it this morning. 

FYI: Their monitors carry a three year warranty.
