Question about Mag Innovision 19" LCD Flat-Panel Monitor LT916S
I have a viewsonic lcd 19 in monitor that just went out of warranty and died 4 days ago.
the green light does not come on, it is dead, is it the power supply? we have tried plugging into different power supplies and nothing, can it be replaced or is it worth it?
It is most likely that the filter capacitors on the poower supply board have failed. I took mine apart and found seven swollen capacitors on the power supply board, they fail prematurely and seem to be the only thing wrong with the unit. I replaced them and now it is working just fine.
six 470uf 25v electrolytic capacitors and one 220uf 25v Capacitor.
you should not attempt to repair this yourself unless you have some electronics training since there is a shock hazzard involved and also these capacitors will blow apart if they are installed incorrectly (very messy experience).

I'm starting to think these are made with a self-destruct mechanism.... if you give up on it, send it to me and I'll try to fix it, k?
You could always open it up and check the power board for swollen or burst capacitors. It could save you hundreds.

If the power supply is not wqrking then it is the invertor unit that has dies.
Replace the monitor is the best advice- If it that recent out of warranty may be worth contacting 'viewsonic to see if they will discount you one.

I am using this great LCD for about an year. But few times in the past my LCD didnt show up the display though the Green light was still ON, turning off the LCD and opening it again always solved the problem. But now My LCD completely went blank. Turning off/on didnt work at all now. I've tried couple of other tweaks mentioned on this site but they didnt work. I am just seeing a blank screen with green light ON. and ya theres a very low hissing sound coming from the LCD.
