    I am having the same damn problrm

  • comicstars Nov 04, 2008

    I purchased a new Viewsonic LCD TV model N4060W 40inch in July 2007. In May 2008 the TV would not turn on, when you pressed the power button the green power light would blink once, then nothing. I contacted Viewsonic, who originally claim that the TV was already out of warranty and I had to prove by reciept when I purchased the TV before they would cover fixing it..

    Well here it is less than 6 months later and less that a year and a half old and it's doing the same thing. I contacted Viewsonic again explaining that there's obvoiusly something defective with the TV since this is the 2nd time already with the exact same issue. They pretty much said too bad ,it's out of warranty and would not do anything to fix the TV.

    Since this is only 6 months from the last time they repaired the TV, this could translate into a costly repair bill every 6 months, if the same thing keeps recurring.

    I would recommend not purchasing any viewsonic products and pass the word along of how they treat a customer who now has a 40inch LCD paperweight.

This thing needs to go to a state attorney general if Viewsonic isn't even will to provide parts for these pathetic LCD TVs.

Power problem for viewsonic n4060w lcdtv. red light comes on for half a second then goes off but no picture appears. also, may work if you turn it on or off 20 times....it just wont "catch".


I had the exact same problem with my set 6 months ago. Had the repairman look at it and it ended up being a faulty/weak power source. He told me that he could either work on the power source himself or just buy a new one. New ones are very expensive and hard to come by, but he was able to fix the existing one. Got the whole thing fixed for something around $350 to $400. Pretty steep and made me consider buying a new one, but I didn't. And now its on the blink again, so you might consider that.

Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

Please post back what you find. If the tech installed a used power supply, it may be bad also. 3 years are typical for capacitors to go bad.

TV wont turn on with remote or the power button


ONE: The protection circuit has taken over the power managment of the set. When you unplug it for a couple of hours or so and plug it back in it will start up because the circuits have all been reset (unplugging the power cord is a reset operation.)

TWO: The protection circuit goes into action whenever it detects an excessive amount of current being drawn from one of the 10 sections of the tv circuitry.

THREE: When it won't turn on it is because the protection circuit has captured the ON function and holds the power relay OFF until it is reset.

FOUR: So, the problem area could be any one of the 10 or so sections of the tv. The most common of which is the high voltage section because it uses the greatest amount of power. If so, this could be very expensive.

FIVE: On the other hand, it could be one of the other sections and a small part such as a resistor or capacitor shorting down. In which case the cost of repair may be only a few dollars.

SIX: However, you will need a tv tech to come to the home and diagnose the set because we cannot tell where the failure is without a hands-on diagnosis by one who knows how to test the circuit sections.

SEVEN: Usually a shop will send out a tech who will do a quick check and tell you what is wrong with the set and how much the repair cost is going to be. A house call such as this will cost from $40 to $80 depending on the distance and the price they set. I suggest you call a few shops and get their best response before deciding which one to employ.

Let me know if you will need further assistance

Viewsonic N4060w will not come on.


replace the c21 and c22 capacitors on the power supply. they are both 1500uf, 16 v. When you pull the back of the set, youll notice that they will be slightly bulging. be sure to order quality ones (105 degree, and reputable brand). Radio shack won't have them, so you'll need to probably go online. The caps are around $1 each. order a couple extra just in case. Digikey.com sells them. I recommend you use a low watt soldering iron (15 watt), desoldering braid and take your time.

LCD TV N4060w can not power on


I had the same problem...first it would take two or more power button presses to get the tv to turn on. Finally it would not turn on. It was the power supply and was easy to replace.

ViewSonic NextVision N4060w 40 in. LCD TV, will not turn on.


While this isnt an exact fix at work, you will at least be able to view your tv. We have one at work that would do nothing when you hit the power on button, just the usual geen led flashing. We pulled the cover off and found the bulging caps, more than likely from brown outs. But we also found that none were holding a charge. So we held the power button on for at least five min, after the led would stay on for about 30 sec and then turn off. We kept hitting the power button and the screen would try to come on. It finally did. After it did come one we can power on and power off aslong as we dont turn it off for more than 10 min. After 10 min of it being off we have hold down power button again and start the whole process again. So the main problem i believe is the caps arent holding a charge, to be able to kick the high voltage circuit on. We did not replace any caps but if we do end up changing parts will post what was changed and cost. Hope this helps

Viewsonic n4060w I was changing my chanel from the console, then the screen went blank. I can hear sound. I try to view the menu or sources but nothing. I can turn the tv on and it lights up a little but still cannot see anything. First, I had trouble with turning the TV on/off -- I could turn it on from the unit, but had to turn it off on the remote. Then, the on-screen menus started going haywire in that, as soon as you pressed the menu button, the TV would automatically quickly go through all menus on its own -- so fast, that you couldn't stop it. I had a local TV repairman come and he said that it was either the board for the TV's control buttons, and/or the main board -- which I guess is the inverter board(?). He ordered both from Viewsonic (apparently, anyway), and voila! TV started working again... but only for a week. The new problem was that it wouldn't turn on at all now. So they ordered a replacement for the two boards AND a new power supply. Lo-and-behold, he got a garbled mess to display with the new boards before he put in a new power supply, and deduced that the power supply was not the problem (and returned it). So, he said the new main board that was sent was defective, and ordered another. Today they came and attempted to put in the newly arrived main board, and it was missing capacitors (and, obviously, the TV is not working still). So, they are ordering another. I just sent him a link to an on-line store www.discount-merchant.com who had some parts available, one of which it claims is video board for an N4060W. Holding my breath now, I guess. Viewsonic is a nightmare!
