Having problems with your ViewSonic VP2030b 20.1" LCD Monitor ?

Black screen. Won't power up.

\015 I have a Viewsonic VP2030b LCD display that flickered on an off a for a few minutes and then finally died. Now, the power light won't even turn on. Any advise would be appreciated.\015

Answers :

This is a common problem on these monitors. There are three or four capacitors in the power supply, three on the inverter board and anywhere from 2 to 6 on the main board that go bad.

The number on the main board depends on how long the monitor has been having problems before it was serviced. The longer the wait, the more capacitors will have gone bad.

The power and inverter boards are easy to repair, the main board is not. As mentioned, it is a multi layer board so removing the old capacitors and the old solder can be troublesome. I would suggest you have someone experienced at soldering repair the main board.

Btw, our shop would charge $60 labour plus $2 for each capacitor.

If unit still not turning on after replacing caps in the power supply board... you must check and replace "bulged" capacitors on the Main
board also. The min board is a multi-layer board... be very careful not to destroy any solder eyelets.
