New Power Supply

Where could I by a new, and better, power supply for Viewsonic N3260w ? if exchanging the two 1000 uF 35 V elconds donĀ“t solve my problem ? The average lifetime for these power supplies seems to be 18 months (safe margin to 1 year varranty) from what I have browsed on Internet, lousy performance, close to criminal!

In my line of business I have purchased over 20 of these units. The power supply is listed on the Viewsonic Store web-site. Part# is B00005305 cost is about $65.00. Being a Tech myself I went the route of replacing individual parts but had no luck. Take into consideration time to repair its cheaper to by the replacement board. You can always fix the damaged board later as a back up.

Good Luck, OTBMAN

    OK, here is the inside secret for getting a new power supply for the N3260 or N3250 although different both are manufactured by the same company. Here is the link for the distibutor

    they deal in replacement power supplies.

    If this fails contact the manufacture of the board itself FSP Group, Inc. they can be reached via link or phone at (909) 606-0960

    The part number is located on the parts side of the board, beginning with FSP---

    You can ship your board in for repair or order a new one if in stock.

    This should do it,

ViewSonic Mod# N3260W VS11436 1M

I do not know the exact value but if you trace out the copper trace from the rectifier output, it should go to the first filter cap and then there will be an inductor and filter cap after that, you can figure out the voltage rating from there. You can get the parts here:
Look here about caps:
