ViewSonic VX910 19" LCD Monitor - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


I suggest either trying another monitor on the computer with this problem or plugging the monitor into another computer.

That will isolate the fault to either the computer or the monitor.

It looks like you have to replace mainboard (it doesn't take input signals)

it means your computer has caught the ati2dvag bug. This bug seems to affect ATI video cards.

The 2 most common “solutions” are:
  • Reinstall the ATI driver. You are advised to launch Windows in Safe Mode (press F8 before Windows boots), go to Windows Add/Remove programs and uninstall everything ATI. Remove the DAO/MDAC component as well. You can use the ATI removal tool utility which can be downloaded from the ATI website. The complete set of instructions on removing ATI can be found here on the ATI website.
  • Go to System Devices in My Computer > Properties > Hardware, and locate the option, PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge. This could under other names on your PC, so contact your PC vendor if you’re unsure. Right click, and select the “update driver” option. Manually search and install the PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge.

Hit the keyboard keys. It is better to just turn sleep and hibernate off and just use a screen saver or tun it off.

This model is known for having bad DC filter caps, they have bulging/leaking tops) as you can see here:

But you should check all the cable and try it with another PC first since Yellow light also indicate no video signal from PC.

There should be no liquid coming out from the cap at all. Is it the one that has 250~350vdc rating on it? The one in my pix has very small leak coming out, you can barely see it.
See pix here; http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/VIEWSONIC/Viewsonic%20VX710_910/?action=view&current=DSC00865.jpg

http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/VIEWSONIC/Viewsonic%20VX710_910/
It should have about 160vdc on this cap, be carefull, this is the HOT (LINE) side of the AC primary circuits!

It may have bad EEPROM or unstable 5vdc feeding the logic board, look inside for bad caps and check the 5vdc, similar to this: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Viewsonic%20VX710_910/

The power supply caps may have failed for the set this old as you can see in my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Viewsonic%20VX710_910/

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, 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 (they should be replaced in a set), 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 VIEWSONIC monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

AllI can think of is that a tripler or inverter could be breaking down, causing the unit to go into auto
shutdown mode. Some devise is breaking down, and causing the unit to shut down.
Not an easy problem to troubleshoot unless you've got a schematic and tech skills.
Hope this helps

The power supply is going bad and needs repalce.

ViewSonic VX910... | Answered on Mar 08, 2011 | 53 views


You don't need drivers for moniters because they are automatically installed when plugged into your pc. If you are looking for any software it may have come with, then you can download it for free from Viewsonics website/support section.

Probably failing powerboard capacitors, possibly also a "dry joint" on the powerstrip

ViewSonic VX910... | Answered on Feb 07, 2011 | 335 views


you can lcdparts.net and see if they have any. If not they could direct you to Viewsonic. If you have no luck let me know mwj71@bigpond.com and i will try my contacts for you.

Hi,
Let the unit cool down for 30 min., give proper ventilation because your processor have a heat sensor, once reached the peak temp the unit will automatically shuts off. Keep away all the obstruction from your vent.
Let me know if the symptom is still there...
Thanks for using fixya.
