ViewSonic VX2235WM Monitor - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


All the caps with the white paste or dots in the middle or swollen tops (convex) need to be replaced and jointly could be responsible for your hassle. Don't confuse a leaking ca with one that has some real hard epoxy like material or glue (usually white) holding it in place.

The driver is available via a CD-ROM disc that came with the monitor. Please check the website for the driver. Otherwise contact ViewSonic technical support for assistance.

It will be cheaper to replace it than to pay $60 to $100 per hour to a qualified technician to _attempt_ to repair it.

2-This step is very important. The collar has two parts snapped in together, with 3 snap in each side. Carefully use small flat screw driver to take off the back side of collar

I repaired my VX2235WM that wouldn't turn the display on anymore (would accept a video signal for a PC, but no image would be shown) by replacing 5 stressed electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board.

Hello,

A monitor that is slow to show a picture is a good indication of a power supply that is in the first stages of failure. The filter capacitors are not holding a charge correctly and it takes a bit to get up to full change and the power supply can start up. Here is a link to a repair guide that show how to open the unit and what to look for and replace to rebuilt the power supply board. The repair guide has pictures and videos to help you get it back running again.

Black screens or no pictures are usually caused by a failure in the back light power supply. Many times the monitor is working but with the back lights not turning on you can't see the display. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to open the unit and what to look for and replace to rebuild the power supply and bring the unit back to life.

Viewsonic uses cheap caps in their monitors, so look for bad caps with bulging top, replace them in a set.

The short answer is no, becuase by time you pay the $50 for the backlight, and $75/hour for the tech to fix it, you can buy another 22inch for the same price and have a 5 year warrinty.

Sorry,
Have a nice day

The VX series are cheaply made with cheap caps and they failed due to bad caps, see my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/VIEWSONIC/Viewsonic%20VX2235W/
VX2235 came out years (2006) ago so I cannot see that it will be only 8 months old. I fixed many of these VX series.

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 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.

This VE155 uses wallwart 12vdc 3.5A power supply, you need to check first to see if it is putting out 12vdc.

Hello and Welcome to Fixya.

Few of the top reasons for causing these "lines" running across the screen are :
  1. Corrupted video driver
  2. Changes in hardware configuration (display)
  3. Monitor issue (hardware)
In order to determine if it's hardware/software issue, all you need to do is to boot to BIOS and check if the problem replicates. Depending on system, you can go to the BIOS screen by tapping "F2" or "DEL" key repeatedly as soon as you turn on the computer until you see a different screen.

If the problem is present while in BIOS, then definitely the monitor needs to be repaired by an authorized repair center. Otherwise, video driver update or Operating system re-install can resolve this problem.

Thanks for using Fixya
