Changing the language
Pocket PC's have Windows OS installed on them. As with computers, you woun't find any option to change the language of the operating system. Your computer comes with english Windows, and however you try, it woun't be an option to change the language of the whole OS. It is the same with PDA's. But even harder than that, each PDA comes with a specific Windows, altrought it is the same version to other PDA's it has some specific things to each model. You can't install a Windows made for HP Ipaq to a Dell PDA because it will simply not work. Also, the language wich is skipped with a PDA is not to be changed. The producing company will consider this ilegal in some cases. I don't know why but they simply woun't want to change the language for you.
However, there some triks to do that your self. To change a language means to change the whole operating system installed in the ROM memory. But like I said, the producers woun't simply allow that, and when you will try to install a diferent language ROM on the PDA it will give you some errors. I know of some ways to deal with this, but it works only for HP PDA's. It will be risky to try it on your own PDA. Also it is a fairly complicated process, involving hexazecimal editing and decompiling a ROM image. The simplest thing you can do is to go to a service center (other that viewsonic's one or major service facilities) and ask them to do that for you.
Need to replace the screen on my Viewsonic V35
If you have cracked the screen the only way to get that fixed is to send it back to whoever the manufacturer is, I have never seen anywhere that will just replace the screen in any phone shop, but you know what, they do have small repair shops in most cell phone companies, maybe give them a call, worse case scenerio they can at least give you the number to contact someone who can fix it...
My monitor viewsonic VA1932 wm gets electric shock if I touch the VGA,DVI ports and the metal placed in the base
This is a hazard that you need to figure out. First thing is to check the power cables, Some of those monitors use a separate power brick and some dont. IF yours has a power brick, make sure it is made by viewsonic. It maybe a polarization issue with the wrong power unit. If the monitor plugs straight into the power cord and then into the outlet, check the cord ends to see if they are polarized ( one is bigger than the other spade) If they are different sizes where they plug into the wall, there is something more serious wrong inside the unit. You should use an electric meter to see how high the voltage is. IF it is more than 50 Volts you should stop using the unit. That model number is not listed on Viewsonics website. There is one that is close but they are not making it any longer.

Viewsonic VX2835wm monitor that powers up with a good screen for a couple of seconds and then goes blank. I replaced the power board and it still does the same thing. Could it be the on/off switch?
FIRST WE DO NORMAL AND LATER TRUE CAUSE.
gee that is normal on all monitors and by Energy Star laws too.
the monitor if the PC is dead or in speed mode, shuts of in 15 to 90 seconds, all do, every one. the monitor has self sleep, all do. everyone ever made did. even back to CRT days.
and the OSD button goes dead after. that. too. fooling the untrained.
here is the first tests, NO PC connected at all
power on see power light glow correct color
then see Viewsonic splash screen push the menu button now. quickly, if button dead hold it for 10 to 15 second to reverse the button lock now, see OSD works.
if you test the monitor on a good PC not in sleep mode the but working PC, your monitor is ok.
this monitor is very very old, 2004?
it has CCFL back lamps not LED<
and all fully used CCFL lamps are now no good, used 8yrs a day at 5years are no good. that is why we use LED back lamps now.
this is what they do: all do , used fully.
1: goEs dead forever, (vast did)
2: INTERMITTANT . (BINGO YOU ) OR INVERTER DEAD.
3: DIM BULBS (like me. lol)
4 TURN YELLOW FOR WHITE screens.
5: STROBEs. (FLASHes)
AND A VERY EXPENSIVE SURE, THAT. AND LABOR.

I have a Viewsonic VE710b monitor. When I connect it to my computer and turn both on, the monitor shows a "No Signal" message. I've checked the connections and all are good. Is my monitor damaged?
First, I'm not a Viewsonic representative.
* Check your warranty. call for support.
*** Following for information only.***
* No signal means no usable signal for a specific input on the TV or monitor.
* If it's just a monitor and not a multi-function TV that also has a Computer to video input then you need to check the device that's hooked up to the monitor as single function monitor's usually only have one input.
* If this is a TV then you need to go to the TV menu and check the "Input Source" to make sure it's on the input plug your using. (I'm using HDMi-2 on my laptop to TV)
* If it's not on the correct input then there will be a different signal (DVD, VCR, etc.) or none at all (No Signal) if those units are turned off.
* Unplug all devices (to reset) and count to 10. Power up and perform set up to your existing configuration.
* Note; as of Jan 2018 most cable TV are not broadcasting in analog (chan 3) and must use a digital tuner to get signal. Some cable Co. provide converters (for a fee?)
* Check with your service provider for more information.
PS, If you do have a damaged input (or feed) then check your video device for alternative outputs; IE: RCA Vid-Right-Left audio, HDMI, Split video (Y-G-B), VGA, S-plug, etc.

My Viewsonic T-46 is stuck in scanning and repairing C drive on start. Can I stop or work around this?
no PC stated. no OS stated, so... weak answers... next.actually only old windows did that! once it needs to do that, that means the HDD shows errors. they are not ever supposed to show errorsand in fact self repair them selves (2001 to now HDD)what I do is shut the PC off.them test the hDD as remote disk and run smart testsor boot the same PC with say linux demo disk (or usb stick)and RUN SMART test.if the fail the HDD is no good. hopeless cases.the next actions is backup data.the PC you have running silly old chkdskwill actually damage more data doing that,that is why w10 does not do that, it just tells you smart fails on HDD0 or the like.Just 2 steps of you have the linux media pre made.as all techs do.no PC stated and viewsonic is not a PC.boot to linux, click try me, then run disktestif it fails smart tests the hdd is bad.http://pcdied.com/linux.html

Va1928 opening case - ViewSonic VA1928wm Monitor
so you want to open the va1928 case.did you take off the stand and full remove the stand mount first.and see screws hidden there, did you remove all screws on the back first? the mount is steel and has 4 screws , off those first.the book is free to read, users guidepage 10, says wall mountthis 1 page shows,1: remove the snap off lastic panel first. that normally hide cables on rear, or just hides the steel mount.and the magic 4 screws on it. then pry it.steps 1 to 4, page 10https://www.manualslib.com/manual/266493/Viewsonic-Va1926w.html?page=10#manual
then remove all other screws you see and it comes apart.this is close, nice clear english too. refreshing.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJuMdIUQ_k8
the pr ytools are; in order of best to worst are.1: using std, cell phone pry tools.2: using a Guitar pick,3: wreck your CC , us an old useless credit card.4: now use screwdriver an mangle the edges for "art"5: claw hammer it? or a finely sharpened crow bar?

My Viewsonic VW2439WM dual display monitor now has a green tint.
VW? what is this VW? prefix? VX or VG is common,Im guessing VXthe manual has no word "dual" in it,so that is perplexing.are you attempting dual displays on 1 PC, (unstated PC)yes, /nothe VX has 3 inputs ports, dvi, vga and HDMIi guess the VGA port fails.why not use VGA to DVI adapter, even as a test. dirt cheap too.why not test any monitor on 2 PC'S Not just 1.then you learn if the monitor is good or bad, in one simple step.?why ask this? you told me HDMI works so why not use HDMI.or does the VGA port must work for other computers, we dont know how any one uses monitors, the possibles are endless.even as service monitor, ok?if the VGA fails on 2 PCs, (it spec resolution) the port is bad.RGB, did you reset the monitor first, do the OSD reset stated in the manual. sure worth a shot that....called RECALL in the manual please read the manual. page 15.page 12Color Adjust provides several color adjustment modes, including preset colortemperatures and a User Color mode which allows independent adjustment ofred (R), green (G), and blue (B). The factory setting for this product is 6500K(6500 Kelvin). make sure not fiddled wrong?
