Viewsonic vx2235wm display issues

Hi. I've got a vx2235wm monitor, the picture quality is great....while it's on. After hitting power, the display goes black in aproximately 1 second but the power light stays lit...I've noticed comments for other monitors having this issue and it's either a fuse or capacitor issue in the power area...but the screens that I'm seeing are different for this monitor...could it be the same issue and is there some way to get a more accurate view of what I'd be replacing?

    there aren't any home options to be able to repair this? As I said, there were some others with similar monitors that just had to replace the fuse and one maybe two capacitors but the pictures that were shown were completely different from what I've got but it did the job for them....

Just got this problem. Exactly with the symptoms described.

I swapped out 3 slightly bulged Capacitors in the power supply area.
Sorry, I was meant to write down the exact designations, but only remembered once I put it all back together again. (oops)

The Cappies in question were 3 exactly the same ones.
220uF, 25v ,about 1cm tall and black. Can't miss them.

I recently have the same issue. I've ohmed out any fuses I can see (there are many) and looked for obvious cap issues, but no luck. Will get out the scope when I find some time.

While it may be "cheaper" to replace the monitor (done that already), it gnaws at me to have an almost perfect monitor sitting next to a fully equiped wotk bench....

Will update if I find anything.

There are many areas of the LCD monitor that can cause very much the same effect that you see. Most of the time there are capacitors that go defective.

The caps can be tested with an ESR meter. This is a time consuming job. The caps are mostly surface mount types, and will require the proper tools to change them.

Normaly the service centers will change the defective boards rather than try to service them. There is no component level service support for any of these monitors.

In the end, it would be cheaper for you to replace the monitor rather than to fix it.

No power to vx2235wm. How can I fix it?


Black screens or no pictures are usually caused by a failure in the back light power supply. Many times the monitor is working but with the back lights not turning on you can't see the display. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to open the unit and what to look for and replace to rebuild the power supply and bring the unit back to life.

My viewsonic vx2235wm monitor keeps going black and then after a few seconds shows the picture again.. what the heck is wrong??!!


It could be a power-inverter board problem.
These 22s tend to have bulb issues too.
It would have to be opened up to check for possible obvious problems on the power board first.
If you can open it and get me a picture or two of the board to bammbamm@ptd.net, I might be able to see if any obvious troubles are showing.

Moniter flips out after it warms up


I repaired my VX2235WM that wouldn't turn the display on anymore (would accept a video signal for a PC, but no image would be shown) by replacing 5 stressed electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board.

Viewsonic VX2235wm Horizontal Image Problem


Tricky one. Have you tried using different dispay resolutions from your Windows Display Control Panel?
ie 1200x1014, 1600x1400, etc.

When you say you used the manual adjust, do you mean the horizontal sync option?

Did you perform a Settings Recall?

And most monitors have a way of entering into an engineering "Factory Service Menu". Usually by depressing specific buttons while the monitor is OFF, and then pressing the power button while still holding the others. Then let all button go at once. From there, hit the normal button that you use for getting into the OSD. In the OSD, there's usually a new field with all kinds of cool new settings to play with. One of them being a soft reset. You'll have to search the net for how to enter into your Factory service menu.

Oh wait! I know!
If your picture has moved to the right, move yourself accordingly.
So that now you and your picture will be aligned properly.

He he he...
Kidding!
That one was from ViewSonic customer support.
