Hi, I have an old Viewsonic ViewPanel VE150

jafaba8, Your VE150 could be 7 -8 years old!! Time to get a new wide screen unit and maybe do research into a DIY refurbishment of the VE150 to keep as a spare unit? Check the date of manufacture on rear of unit??? Let us technicians know what you will do. Bye for now.

ViewSonic VX2450WM - sound disappeared.

great post a Viewsonic with sound , none of mine have it.2007 monitor old, most are dead now.I hate those dinky shrill speakers inside.NO PC told (a nebular Laptop)no OS toldbut windows has a sound mixer that allows me to pick 4 or more sound output devices, 1 at a time not all at once.well when you connect the external speakers to any PC 3.5mm phone jack outputs, that switch in that jack cuts the sound inside the laptop dead BY DESIGN.why would you want trash shrill speakers inside the laptop with super find sounding external speakers at the same time.trash + great sound = trash. why want this??? no body does.nor if you plug in head phones to same jack the same thing happens speakers go dead, for privacy, (you and the others around)lets seeexternal speakers not told, usb or 3.5mm phone plugs.headphones USB or 3.5mm or both>?and the View sonic has speakers? let me look now.the manual shows(stereo mini jack, for VX2450wm-LED only<<< got this?the manual shows 3.5mm mini audio in jackthis means this opted monitor as amplified speakers insideand when connected to phones on any laptop the laptop for sure has its internal speakers muted,NO textual speakers told. besides monitorsall external speakers must have and amp , audio power ampor the speaker are dead.the phone jacks NOT drive any raw wired speakers ever.same with desktop green rear jack is line out or phones.not raw spearksif you do have AMP speaker it needs to have power to run..AC or DC power packs.the amp must be good, some old ones are must amplified the sound to the actual speakers.the switch in the 3.5mm phones jack is hardwareand disables the internal LAP speakers by Design.make sure the sound mixer is set to the correct output;.\seen here

NO PC told no OS told no what app shows wrong colors what does wrong mean? we can not see it. what are you doing, with the PC, and application of some kind or just windows screens wrong. is this a artist point of view , for Publishing in perfect tints? does VA2026w fail on 2nd PC? old monitors (trashy) have CCFL back lamps and go yellow tinged for white, and yellow added to other colors are trash. too. let me C 14 carbon date this MON. 2007 made and is CCFL lamps and all are bad now or yellow dog tinged or changes hot../cold or random. time to get a real monitor called LED 2010 or newer. 2007 are junk, the CCFL will go dead next. all do. here is what mine looks like, then,.... long ago. just like this. pure trash monitors, all brands that year or older 2010 is the cusp year CCFL > LED starting with big screens to small. so 2011 is best year up;. 2010 some are some not. 2007 is junk,

Ac power cord for HP vf51 flat panel monitor

Good Day Tricia,

I had to pull up you owner's manual to get the spec's on your cord, so if you need the manual follow this link:

Anyway after reading the spec's you need an AC-DC power supply that outputs 12volts at 3.3amps. What makes this difficult to find is the 3.3amps, most aftermarket power supply only go up to 2amps. So what's next? Well you can order directly through HP at this link:
If you do this make sure get part 8121-0740 if you live in the states, or part 8121-0731 if you live in europe.

The only other suggestion I can give is to bring the monitor into a radioshack and see if they have a 12VDC 3.3AMP (you can get a universal with higher amperage if needed, the monitor will only draw the 3.3 it needs even if it is supplied more) and the reason I say bring it in is so they can match the size of the plug that goes into the monitor, as there are about 20 diffrent diameters's. Again the problem you may have is finding one with a high enouge amperage.

I hope this helps

Good Luck

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.

· The OSD Lock Out Message

Power your computer completely off and then remove the monitor cable from the port on the back side of the computer case. Reattach the cable and make sure the pins are correctly screwed in all of the way. Power the computer back on and check to see if the OSD lock out message is still being displayed.

· 2

Check the manual that came with your computer or monitor and locate the troubleshooting section if you are still receiving the OSD lock out message. Find the OSD lock out heading and read the method that your particular model of monitor uses to remove the lock out. Follow the instructions to remove the lock out.

· 3

Attempt generic lock out removal procedures if you no longer have the manual that came with your monitor. Press and hold the "Menu" button located at the bottom end of your monitor for 15 seconds and wait to see if the OSD lock out message disappears.

· 4

Press the "Menu" button again if the lock out message remains on the screen. Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the main menu options. Highlight the "Settings" or "OSD Menu" option and then hit the Menu key again to access the new list of settings.

· 5

The OSD Settings Menu Scroll down to the "OSD Lock" heading. Use the arrow keys to change the setting to "No." Hit the Menu key again to return to the main menu. Scroll over to the "Exit" setting and then hit the Menu key a final time to exit the menu setting and remove the OSD lock out

The problem can be bad power supply feeding the backlight inverter circuits due to bad caps, or in the inverter circuits, or worst case will be bad lamps, you need to open it up and tell us what you see inside first, good pictures will help, see example of failed VIEWSONIC due to bad caps:

How do you connect a viewsonic vg15ob mo niter

Chances are you laptop has a vga input (looks like a blue trapazoid with lots of holes). Most monitor come with a vga cable. If this is the case you are good to go. If you dont have a cable for the monitor, you need to look on the back to identify the type of input(s) you have (DVI,VGA, or RCA). Then go to your local electronics store and tell the guy/girl you need a blank (monitor input TO blank (Laptop output) and you should be in business.
Let me know if this helps.
