Question about ViewSonic VX2433WM 23.6" Monitor

Open Question

I'm running a ViewSonic VX2433wm monitor off my Acer laptop. Usually the monitor is great. But when I play a slide-show (through Picasa, Irfanview or Windows Picture viewer), any images with large dark areas eg. a portrait with a black background, go darker as they display. Lighter images stay perfect. With Irfanview I've discovered that if I change the background of the slideshow from black to white the problem goes away. Can this be solved by changing a setting somewhere? Many thanks for thinking about this! Vicki

SOURCE: Viewsonic VE175b Monitor Powers Up Doesn't Display Windows OS

Hi; I had the same problem. I know that sometimes devices require you to perform some type of '10-30 second' "hold" of one or some of its buttons in order to 'reset' the device, so to speak. So, having said that, try this:

1) Turn your monitor off (no green light) but leave it plugged in.
2) Leave it off for about 10 seconds.
3) Hold the [2] button on your monitor (the one to the immediate LEFT of your monitor's POWER button).
4) While holding the [2] button, now press and HOLD your POWER button.
5) Wait for your image to appear and STAY onscreen for about 5 seconds, then release both buttons.
6) Your monitor should retain its onscreen image.

Hope this helps! Good Day to all!

Go to the setup menu on the LCD panel by pressing button 1 on the front. See if there is an option to reset the lcd to factory settings. Reset it and report if it helps not.

Screen is milky white from the middle down

That is not good, the LCD screen panel will need to be replaced, however to do this would not be cost effective, cheaper to replace the whole monitor.

White screen no picture


That type of issue is usually caused by a failure of the power supply board but it is easy to repair. There are parts called capacitors that overheat on short out. Here is a link to a page showing what capacitors are and how to tell if they have failed.
When they die the power supply can't put out the correct voltages to run the monitor so you get the back lights but no display. The model uses the IPLI-107 power supply board.
Here is a link to a kit with the correct capacitors to repair that board.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

I have a Vx2433WM and am using it as a tv for my PS3 through hdmi connection. The audio stopped working. I tried muting and un-muting but nothings happening. How do I get my audio back??

I'd check in the control panel under sounds and see what the system thinks the output device is. Probably not the speakers. If not, change the output to your computer speakers.

Dead on arrival need to open back cover

emtv_satc852, First visit YOUTUBE and watch some of them being pried apart at their perimeters around the four edges. That's how most of them are opened. Some people use an old CD or DVD disk, while some use thin blade screwdrivers. Try "lcd monitor disassembly" or "lcd monitor repair" on YOUTUBE. Good luck. Hope this helped. 12fixlouie

I hooked up a vx2433wm monitor to a dell computer, and I can't get the sound to work. Any thoughts?

this monitor has a separate audio in cable that must be connected on the green audio in socket at the back of your computer to the back of your monitor. this is usually a thinner cable as compared the the thick cable which goes to the video card for video.

Have just hooked up my Viewsonic VA720 moniter as the main moniter to a new laptop that I have. The laptop is an ACER Travelmate 6293 running windows XP. When I come to start up my computer each morning...

You most likely have a capacitor that has changed value. When a capacitor goes bad it will work after it heats up. Sometimes a bad cap will have a bulging top or show signs of leakage. Sometimes can only be checked with a meter.

We have a VX2433WM monitor that now has the images in a stretched out look on the screen-how do we fix this? Thanks!

Right click on desktop, choose properties from the pop up menu, in display properties choose the settings tab and set the resolution using the slider to 1920×1080 which is your monitors optimum resolution.
