Having problems with your ViewSonic VA720 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor ?

Have just hooked up my Viewsonic VA720 moniter as the main moniter to a new laptop that I have. The laptop is an ACER Travelmate 6293 running windows XP. When I come to start up my computer each morning the Viewsonic screen only flashes on for a few seconds and then goes blank....I have to turn the screen off and on about 40 to 50 times until eventually it stays on....It is almost like it has to warm up......Any Ideas..??


Answers :

You most likely have a capacitor that has changed value. When a capacitor goes bad it will work after it heats up. Sometimes a bad cap will have a bulging top or show signs of leakage. Sometimes can only be checked with a meter.
