Question about ViewSonic VP201b 20.1" LCD Monitor
Turn monitor on but no display. Screen is black, no backlighting. Green light is on. What could the problem be?
I have two broken VP201 monitors with different symptoms. One was black screen green light - like yours. The other was purple speks flying all over the screen., purple tint.
I swapped the power supplies and display boards, both monitors had original problems. I swap the inverters and the monitor which was black screen now appeared to work okay - but slightly pink and the monitor which was purple speks is now black screen.
I would therefore assume that both my inverters gone, one being on it's way out. You probably have the black-screen case.
