Question about ViewSonic VP230mb 23.1" LCD Monitor

4 Answers

Power supply problems (failures).

We have about 200 of these beasts at the Hospital. After a year or so of continuous use, the power supplies are crapping out.

I need a schematic and possibly a parts list if possible. These things have recently become a main't responsibility for me.

    The whole monitor is dead. They have been provided new p/s units by the Mfg. without charge, but that is now all changed. I guess that was about to get expensive. That's when they put them off on me.

    A schematic is all I need. Been doing this sort of stuff for about 25 years, but the work load doesn't support my reverse engineering and autocad drawings.

    Thanks, Tom

You are talking about the Veiwsonic VP230mp right!
The supply is 12 volts at 7.5 amps.
Got some here we wit bad smps.
One had a bad PFC chip and the other has an intermitting start up.
Solution is trash the inside ps and hook up an externat one. Any 12 volt-10 or 15 amp ham supply will do.
Inside you have to trace out the main dc connection and solder to these and supply it wit outside supply.
Easy fix.

If anyone knows the failure cause on the internal SMPS chime in.

Hi Guys,

We have detected one faulty chip (DIL8 box ref:13843 from ??)... The problem is that we didn't find any supplier for it.
There is another faulty chip that we found (DIL8 box ref:LM358D from Philips)... This one is easy to get on the market.
Do you have any supplier to propose for this component? Do you have spre component already?
Thanks by advance.

What inline fuse should be used for 12V power supply from vessel to EV-200 ?

First, type-1 is not an hydraulic system. It's electro-mecanic.
The EV-200 needs 2 power supplies. 1 for the calculation unit ( thru the Seatalk OR by a connection in the ACU ) AND a feed for the pilot motor/pump.
The calculator power ( NMEA ) needs only a 5 amp fuse. The 'high' power needs an eventual 25amp fuse. In fact, the power output to the motor is totally protected from overloads and/or shorts. Have those cables between power distribution and ACU thick enough to handle 20amps on his length ( twice the cable distance between battery and Acu is the lengt to calculate with )

What will happen to the hard drive in power failure?

Power failure as in whole house power failure? Or the computer's power supply failure?
Whole house failure, nothing, the computer will shut off and require rebooting, at which time you may receive a message the computer was not properly shut down, just continue as normal.
Computer power supply failure, same thing, nothing, except the computer will not reboot as the power supply has failed.

I am using AOpen 200-Watt Power Supply, suddenly, it has a problem: No power output. Maybe any diot is broken? How to dectect and replace it?

200 watt would mean it is a few years old so it could eb a few things. Power supplies can be prone to heat damage if never cleaned out. It's cooling fan gets plugged up just like your cpu fan. The ehat will kill off weak parts.

Generally what fails on these are the big power transistors (mosfets) and sometimes the power capacitors. Easy to replace if you can solder. There is also a fuse on the board that sometimes goes out.
If you can't solder then its not really worth trying to fix as a new power supply is so cheap. You can find a 350 or 400 watt for about $20 brand new.

My power supply had ashort circuit smell burnd,

This power supply is a standard power supply that will handle 200 plus watts.
It can be replaced with just about any ATX supply and really would be a waist of time trying to trouble shoot it.
Any 24 Pin ATX supply will work just fine in its place.
