Question about ViewSonic VX2035WM LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Does anyone know what the initial DC voltage is on this, as in, where does the 120DC coming out of the rectifier go(into)?

    What I am attempting to do is to mod this display into a device, but I cant find that voltage, and my HV meter died, I am working on making a power supply that will supply the display, a 18.5v mac mini, and some 5v devices.

The DC voltage on the big cap on the AC primay side which is hooked up the output of the bridge rectifier should have about 160~170DC (120vac x 1.414 = 169vdc) on the cap, this DC voltage is fed to the switching step-down transformer which is driven by the MOSFET.
BE REAL CAREFUL ON THE PRIMARY SIDE! Do not work on it unless you are using good isolation transformer for the 120VAC source or at least use it the 120vac from the GFI outlet!.

What is it not doing?
PM me if you me to send you the service manual:

Or, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

    I am atteptting to mod this into a system where I am given a DC input at 20V, and i have regulators and other components that allow me to get a target voltage, as of now, the laptop-battery powered system can power a 18.5v Mac mini, some USB stuff @ 5v, andI have about 3A left in the batt. managment system (20V) (90W) and I need to know what voltage I can feed into the PSU, besides inverting and stepping up to 120V AC, or 120DC for after the rectifier

    Thanks in advance

Check the battery is charging correctly. the voltages at the battery should be engine off- about 12.4 volts DC . Engine running at about 1000 rpm the voltage should be about 14.4 volts DC. if these voltages are down, you have a regulator, rectifier or alternator problem.

Hi iam using bajaj avenger , i just change the battery two time ,but after each month the battry not use , can anyone tell me what may be the problem

there is a stator coil under the cover that charges the battery...usually, wires come out of the stator and then go into an electronic device called a rectifier/regulator...this device rectifies the ac voltage coming from the stator into dc to charge the battery..this device also regulates the voltage to around 13.8 volts so that the battery does not get damaged by overvoltage you get when you rev the engine...the regulator looks like a metal box with heatsink fins on it...if you can obtain a voltmeter. check the battery voltage while the bike is should get a reading of 13.8 - 14.4 volts if the stator and regulator are working..if not, then you will need to determine if the stator coil is bad or if it is just the regulator

3-phase recty fier not output voltage 230V 10V

What is the type (input, output, power) of the rectifier.
If controllable - may be the control PCB or thyristor.
If not controllable - 10 V DC instead of 230 V DC is hardly believable.
In this case the rectifier may be OK, but the input - low.
If you have a voltmeter, check the input AC and the output DC if the output has about 200 V AC you may have shortened diode.

hi this might help,normally if the alternator/generater fails you will get no charge voltage at all,if your bike is fitted with an alternator(most later honda models are)then you will have a rectifier and regulator,the rectifier converts the ac voltage from the alternator to dc voltage which is then fed through the regulator and then onto the battery,if the bike is fitted with a generator then you will still have a regulator but no rectifier,a generator develops dc voltage at its source so a rectifier is not needed,a simple way to test the system is with a simple digital volt meter,these are very cheap and reliable and can be got for around 20 bucks,with the engine running at about 1500 -2000rpm test the voltage across the battery with the meter normall voltage at charge should be between 13.8 and 14.8 volts,if you are getting more that this then the regulator is faulty,another way to test the regulator is to slowly lift the engine rpm from idle through to about 3 or 4000rpm the voltage across the battery should not rise any higher than about 14.2-14.8 and it should reach its peak at about 2-2500rpm and not fluctuate more than about 1 volt across the rev range,if the voltage exceeds about 14.8 or fluctuates excessively with engine revs then the regulator needs to be replaced.hope this helps...cheers ian

Check out the rectifier tube, there is only one DC voltage derived from the mains supply and it goes through that Rectifier tube, it is a 5AR4. The other two taps on the secondary of the input transformer are 6.3 Volts AC and 5 Volts AC. BE CAREFUL POKING AROUND ON THESE THEY CAN KILL YOU. Measure the DC output voltage if you have a meter or in most cases just look at the rectifier tube filament, 9 times out of 10 if it doesn't light up it is dead. Good luck.

Not geting a charge back 2 my batterie

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

No charge to the battery could be caused by:
  • faulty / loose / corroded / burned terminals / connectors from stator to regulator (most likely);
  • faulty rectifier / regulator combo (likely);
  • faulty stator (least likely).

To determine which, initially visually inspect the wiring and its connectors from the stator to the rectifier/regulator combo. Thereafter, a DVM/VOM is required to measure the AC voltage output of the stator (~30VAC), the DC voltage output of the regulator (~14.5VDC @ 4000RPM) and engine off battery voltage of ~12.5VDC. It maybe to your advantage to have the battery load tested as well.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Converting ac to dc voltage

You need to transform the voltage to a level that you require, then 'rectify' your voltage to DC, with a bridge rectifier. There are many different types of rectifiers for different uses. Look on the web for electronics, bridge rectifiers.

No Power

You should measure AC voltage from the output of the transformer to the bridge rectifier, and after the rectifier you should see a DC voltage (you may also read some "ripple" AC voltage on the DC side as well). Check across each battery to see how many volts DC they are receiving (as they will all be in series connection ie one after the other). Batteries are the usual problem with faulty UPS's. You may have a problem battery or multiple problem batteries and they may need replacing.
