Having problems with your ViewSonic VP201s 20.1" LCD Monitor ?

Viewsonic VP201b, power light but no menu or picture

\015 I believe the fuse on the backlight blew out, but one recommendation was to replace the fuse, I only see one fuse and it's on the main power board, is there another one just for the backlight? If so, I don't see it, can someone provide me with more specifics on where this fuse is located?\015

Answers :

Hello,

The fuse on the inverter is very small usually small that a grain of rice. It will be labeled F something such as F101 F205 etc. The other thing to look for is blown capacitors, they are anywhere from 1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter and 1/2 to 1 inch in height. When they blown the top that is normally fat will either have a domed top or the top will be fully popped open. If you see anything that looks like that then they will need to be replaced before you replace the fuse or it will just blow again. The values on the capacitors are marked on the plastic sleeve that is around them. You may be able get them from Radio Shack but most likely you will have to order them to get the right values. If you have additional questions just email me. I am in the process of posting some pictures of bad capacitors on my web site at www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.html

My only question here is: what is the voltage for that 4A fuse? 24V, 32V, 50V ?
I've "shorted" the fuse with one strand of 30 gage wire (rated for 1A - just wanted to see if it worked - it did). I'll replace that with the real deal if I can find the right voltage. I wouldn't give this monitor to anyone without a real fuse.
