There are two reasons why capacitor blow up is higher voltage than it can take or higher temperature than the mark on the capacitor.When I repair psu I always change ALL capacitors,primary and secondary section.Bad capacitor in primary section is usually reason for overvoltage in secondary.Fuse is in power line of 820mF.As I remember they are paralel connected so follow +line back to the diode.There is a small green component looks like resistor betwen diode and capacitors.
Same thing is with other two monitors princip is the same.

Check the DC filter caps first.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I have one view sonic va1912w-4 monitor. No power from 2 days. So i can checked power cable but problem is not rectifide.What can i do check next step.


Its either going to be the power board or the main board, My assumption would be the power board since those are the more lilely culprits to go out on those monitors.

Since neither one is readly available, check the fuses on the power board and then also see if there are puffy caps. If there is then replace them with ones that are the same UF rating and same or highter voltage.

I have three blown capacitors. they say 820uf 25v. they all solder to the same part on the board. is it necessary to have three of the caps at 820uf 25v. or can they be added up like 820+820+820=2460uf 25v


Hello,

You need to have the 3 capacitors. There is not a 2460uf capacitor, If one of the 3 fail then the other two will still work, if you have just one capacitor and it fails then you have a dead power supply with the first failure.

My viewsonic va1912wb just flat-out died. Won't turn on, no lights, no response. Is there a likely cause, and is there anything user-repairable?


Hello,

You have monitor with a very common problem, a dead power supply. After 2-3 years many LCD monitor power supplies will fail just like you have described. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the tight space of the monitor case. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. We will have a repair guide posted 12/29 after about 5:00 central time that should get you back going again. The repair guide will be on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com If you have any questions please let me know at the address below.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

desolder the caps remove them and replace them with exact parts. why do you want to change the value of the cap? you can increase the voltage value. the fuse value will be on the metal or plastic. use green stick or tweezers to remove fuse body. i hope i answered your question. reply if u need something else. bama46
