If the TV will not turn on and you do not have a "red" power indicator light you will need to replace or fix the power module. This is easy to replace, approx 125 USD, but also can be fixed. I fixed mine for about 1.97 USD with parts from Radio Shack.

The TV won't turn on anymore. It gets power but the button isn't lighting up and no picture or sound. It is difficult to change out the power button board?

First check the voltages on the power supply. That is the most common problem with ViewSonic in this case. If all the voltages are there and capacitor and diodes all look good, then it would be the main board.

I have a n3251 viewsonic and only the sound is working,

With the tv on some channel (and sound working), take a strong flashlight or other light and bring it up to the screen. Do you see a faint picture? Sounds like the backlight has failed. Could be the power supply for it or the inverter board or one of the lamps. Are you qualified to open the unit and look around? Do you have a voltmeter?

I have a Viewsonic flat-screen tv, it displays "menu locked" ??

Try holding the VOL + and VOL - buttons on the TV (not on the remote) down together. You should see a "unlocking buttons" message on screen. This might work. However, I tried it repeatedly, as told to by the Viewsonic "service" rep, and it didn't work for me. Viewsonic is ****, and so is its "service"!
