Question about ViewSonic VX910 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

VX924 - powers on steady green with display illuminated but lasting only 2 seconds then black. I have changed all the electrolytic caps even the large one on board type FSP035-1p101 P/N3BS006431 but problem persists. When I shine a torch onto the screen I can see the display albeit faintly so I presume the logic board itself is OK (no sign of suspect caps) so what else could I change on the power/inverter board? I assume the backlights themselves are OK as the display does illuminate albeit for 2 seconds.

    Thanks for the prompt response - I'll give it a go, but do you think there would be such a heat build up in the two seconds from power on from cold to black display to give this problem? i was wondering if there was a problem with one or more of the ceramic capacitors, diodes, resistors or transistors on the board? Is a spec available for the various components on the board so that if needed and where possible I can test first and then replace? as i would rather solder once rather than keep removing the board.

    Thanks. Can you say what ics stands for? - is that the integrated circuits on the PCB board itself? I am happy with the power supply as all of my other IT kit is OK.

Since you have already changed all the electrolytic capacitors, the next step is to fix the connections that the metallic surfaces used for heatsinks have to do. Locate one by one these metallic heatsinks, turn the board upside - down and use a simple isolated cable to join the copper points that the heatsink connects using a soldering tool. At many cases these connections are very unstable since the heatsinks are getting hot. Use pieces of cables to make these connections secure.

    Since you have already replaced all the el. capacitors, the posible problems could be: heatsinks - shortcircuits, ics and transistors. At most of the cases that came to my lab the problem was at the capacitors, or cold contacts on the board; never at the ceramic caps, never at the resistors (by the way check in case there are some power resistors). Another one possibility is the power supply itself, if it's an external one, but this is easily to be measured, on load.
    I'll try to lacate a schematic at my data in order to post you back, but I don't think you'll need this.

Klv32s310A sony bravia gets start on with green light and after a second turns to stand by mode blinking the red light 6 times after each 2 second interval

Hello Sagar,
green led means tv powered on and status ok.
Red blinking light almost always means defect, overcurrent or overload.
6 blinks for Sony lcd flat tv means trouble in backlight circuit, or backlight inverter (backlight illumination or lighting makes your tv screen visible).
common problems in the inverter circuit, which drives the backlight, or shorted drivers, or short-circuit transformers or open circuits.
You should find the problem in the inverter circuit, or in the power supply board or in the main board.
Also look for bad capacitors (electrolytic caps) which are bulged and swollen on top.
Decoupling plugs from printed circuit boards can help you in finding the problem board by elimination method.
If you power up the set after unplugging certain plugs on f.e. the inverter board , this could result in getting a green power led and concluding that this board is faulty.

2001fp the screen is black the power light is green. It will flash when first turned on but wont light up. I have it apart and I don't see any obvious bad caps

The problem can be in the inverter board:

You can try replacing the inverter and hope that the problem is not in the backlight assemblies. You need the test lamps to verify the function of the inverter board. Do you get steady 20vdc feeding the inverter. You can also try heating up the two black electrolytic caps on the inverter board to see if the inverter will fire up using hair dryer, when bad caps with high ESR are heat up the ESR will go down.

My sony wega keeps cutting off then coming back .

a couple of years old can be a long time:

has the TV been on 24\7

It's the amount of hours that matters..

electrolytic capacitors typically last 3000 to 5000 hours....

Special "long life" caps last close to 7000
but the caps in most consumer electronics, even broadcast equipment 3-5K hours.

Blinking On/Off.. seems to be a common problem.

I just replaced ALL of the Electrolytic Capacitors (6 in all) on my bad VX924 P/S, and it did not help. Several of the old caps were puffed-up/burst. I am ordering a new power MOSFET, Q320, if successful I'll be back in touch.

ViewSonic Monitor has trouble to wake up after been shut down.?

Well with this type of fault it is invairably a problem with the Power Supply, in the PSU Electrolytic capacitors dry out and often cause this type of exact problem... It is a relitively simple fix, by replacing the caps with new ones... Any good shop should be able to fix for a modest fee.. OR if ya know anyone handy with a soldering iron maybe they could do it for you there are generally about 4 - 6 to replace... in the PS section, just do them all to be safe..
