    My 19" viewsonic monitor has died as well.  Same symptoms as above.  Press the power 'on' button and nothing (absolutely nothing) happens.  Is it worth trying to get fixed or better to buy a new monitor (not viewsonic).

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.

My monitor dont come on, and green light flashng, viewsonic vp930b.


If your ViewSonic LCD monitor has stopped working with a blinking green power button, It typically means that there is one or more failed capacitors in the monitor. It would be best to send the monitor in to Viewsonic for service or to purchase a new monitor.

I was using my computer one day. I shut down for the day,everything was fine. The next day I attempted to turn it on and the green light did not come on and I had no screen. Everything was dead.


More likely the power supply had died, look for bad caps with leaking/bulging top, fuse, etc.
See failed VIEWSONIC in my albums.

Monitor went black and will not turn back on


Contact Viewsonic technical support. They offer a 1 year warranty. This device is probably dead.

No power - suddenly went dead, no green or orange power light.There is mains power at the monitor's power input socket.


Check all caps in power supply. Look for the tops of the caps to bulge. Replace any that looks or smell bad, like a sulfur smell. Make sure you put them in the right way. I usually increase a cap that blows. If its a 16v I go to a 25v or a 25v to 35v. keeping the same ufd. Because of the surge, off and on, It helps.

The screen is black even though the green light is on


Your inverter or backlight need to be replaced those are the main components that light up the display.

Screen Keeps turning off after about 1 second. I turn it on and can see the desktop for about a second then the screen shuts itself off.


Have you tried booting into safe mode? This will also provide a safe video mode. During bootup, press the F8 key. Arrow down to "Safe Mode" and press the enter key. If the monitor still does it after this, chances are it is bad.

ViewSonic LCD (VA1912w) Went Blank


ViewSonic LCD (VA1912w) Went Blank

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.

Check the information at Viewsonic's website regarding their warranty:

http://www.viewsonic.com/support/warranties/limited-warranty/

If you have your proof-of-purchase and it shows the monitor is less than a year old, it would be covered. You would need to follow the procedure on their website to have the unit repaired or replaced, but it would not be your job to try to fix it.
