brian bylund: Hey I have a problem with my tv/monitor its a viewsonic N3250w and I've had it for about 8 in a half years yes I know it's old but just recently like today and yesterday but now it won't turn on at all but anyways so I've tried pressing the power button several times on tv and remote I've unplugged it and plugged it in and tried other outlets to rule out a power issue but for sure inside the tv so it won't turn on at all now. And I tried connecting my PC to the tv because it can and has a long time ago been used as a monitor and I did that so if it were connected I wouldent have to turn it off and back so that it would just go in sleep mode with the PC. Because I got it to work yesterday and once I turn it on I can turn it off and back on but after like an hour it won't turn back on period so hopefully this is enough of information for someone to help me out if you can help plz do would be so much appreciated, thanks.

brian bylund: Wow YouTube just deleted my whole comment so I'm going to remake it as said again it's a viewsonic N3250w LCD tv/monitor, January 2006, and I'm having trouble with the the power button I've tried turning it on threw the power button on remote and tv but nothing it's an issue inside I'm thinking, if anyone can help plz do would be so much appreciated and this just happened today and its 8 in a half years old so yes it's old and thinking maybe somthing fried idk but plz help has been a very good TV and would be a shame to have to get rid of it, thank you

Scott Margerum: Good repair.. I got analog working again but the DVI seems to not be responding... oh well analog with a dvi adapter is fine with me....

BadMadPlay: cant believe how faulty view sonic monitors can be..>< i just had to buy one-.-

Rat Rod Argentina Jorge E. Nuviola: thanks!!!!!! i can fix my vx922, excelent tutorial!!!!! thanks again!!! george from the end fo the world (argentina)

BadMadPlay: I can't get my backing off the monitor...

brian bylund: To clarify its a LCD viewsonic N3250w, January 2006.

Bob Villa: Am doing this repair right now... I have a VX924... my 100uf 400V one is blown as well so yeah... I need to get a few more... also these are the ones I had in my unit... x2 470uf 25V | x1 330uf 25V | x1 330 35V | and the big dog... 100uf 400V ... ofcourse if this fails you can still get this entire board bit for $33 your choice if you do not have a sodder iron

cableaddict: I'm having this same problem, but it's very intermittent. Is that common with bad caps, or do they simply go completely?

Mohd Azylee: i have this problem too

getonthetubedude: Most likely the same problem. Take a close look at the capacitors (little cans) sticking up from the power supply board. If the have a hump or dome shape on the top, they are bad. Read the numbers along the side of the capacitor and do a google search to find a supplier. eBay will have them for sure. Hope this helps.

magicodo: Nicholas Cage?

garagecrap: I had similar problem, screen would go on/off repeatedly when resolution changed to higher on Wins startup. I found all 4x 470uf/25V bad so replaced them with 33V ones giving them some headroom. How ever the main problem could be coz the caps are so close to the heat sink. Could add small fan but the new caps should last couple of years enyway. Hey great vid too!

handyman6042: Please help me out here. My moms monitor was doing the blinking light thing. And I did just as you said in video. Now it comes on fine. But the picture is real white and fuzzy. What did I do wrong lol.

John Larson: Confirmed that this works for VX922. Replaced all 5 capacitors in the row shown in the video (all next to each other on one corner), and the one in the center of the board. The smallest cap on the board wasn't bulging up, so I did not replace it. I used: (4) 470uF 35V 105 degree caps (2) 1000uF 35V 105 degree caps The 1000uF caps I used were slightly larger in diameter. They were rated to take higher voltage than stock 10V caps. Thanks for this video, the fix saved my favorite monitor!

apguy13: FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS AND THIS WILL WORK WONDERS!

Josiah Tullis: I have the VX922, how do you know what capacitors to order? Where do you buy them?

getonthetubedude: @BatistaReel Glad to see you were not afraid to touch the Flux Capacitor. "10,000 Gigawatts, Ben what wa i thinking?" I am glad to see you left your comfort zone to save some bucks. This stuff can get addictive!

jdoepker: Worked like a charm... the backing was a little tough to get off, really felt like I was going to break it... and some clips did, but it's all good. That was really the most difficult part!

Zagen: Which capacitors should i buy? i mean the specs of all of them.

Jhon Conrado: hello I need the integrated reference U101 that burned this VX922 monitor. thanks

Intestified: Cool, thanks.

jhonbus: Thanks for the video, after seeing this I replaced the capacitors on my VX922, and it's now fixed!

koopa8585: I replaces 2 bulging capacitors on a viewsonic vx910 however i still have the blinking green light . should i replace the other capacitors? or could there b e another problem?

recoil404: Thanks for making this

Andrés Samboní: Muchas gracias, me gustaria una pagina en español

Germán Plastina: Man, MANY THANKS!!! You save my old ViewSonic VX922 (75hz, 2ms, my favourite for gaming) :D Yeah, i'm so happy, thank you mate!!

atcair33: @getonthetubedude I have a VX922 that had the same exact issue. This video is awesome!. The monitor opened a little different and I had to hunt around for 105 degree C caps. I had 2 470 and 1 330 with crowns. I have never done anything like this before. Caps must have + and - sides and MUST go in the way they came out. My F#$%ing monitor works again!!! F#$k Viewsonic!!!!!

fleetwoodsucks: i have an old crt that has this problem of the power light flashing, Do you think it would be a similar fix? Should i open it up and look for domed capacitors? near where the power comes in?

reanimax87: thank you, i just fixed my monitor, even though i have no idea of electronics, your tutorial is very easy to follow i only changed some transistors i got from a local electronics store thanks!

getonthetubedude: Glad it worked!! $2 < $145 for new monitor right?

lindamist: ty so much for your help!!!!!! i repaired my samsung moniter using capcitors from an emachine monitor. your video was great.god bless you

1Zerotonine: To bad my Father passed a way Electronics was his trade! never learned much at the time but I must have picked up some, now I know I cant run to Dad lol. OK not much people would show honest info like this, I got a LCD monitor I guess they all work on a same principle and if one cant find same cap then I recall that u can use not lover but higher cap in its place, I am learning and will give my monitor the same thing here it is doing the same jcards thnks u Good Man!

allzaa: than you this video brought my dead lcd to life

Lite Finocchiaro: @lite1979 Just as a follow-up: I borrowed a soldering iron from a friend, bought some solder and some copper braided wick just in case (to soak up extra solder). I was able to remove all of the bad capacitors by heating them up - got a little messy and got kind of close to some other solder points, but didn't melt them. I'm posting this from the fixed monitor right now. I used a nail clipper to clip the long ends off the new capacitors. Ebay is a good place to find the capacitors. $13 total

ar3582: @getonthetubedude Hi can I ask you where one can buy a tool that opens thin monitor cases? I have a monitor that does NOT have any screws. It would need to be pried off. I don't want to mar it (butter knife) in any way if I can buy a tool to do it right.

Petit Lweno: hello thanks for this instructional video i have a viewsonic vx922 i have followed all the steps now am on the step that you have to identify the bad capacitors but it seems like all my capacitors are domed up apart from the tiny one that is next to the cylinder like battery thing i dont know what its called haha. so i dont know if i have to change most of them ? please help thank :)

Methuselah: Just did this and have saved my two vx922's. You are my savior.

Josiah Tullis: I have the same question.

Prinny God: Awesome tutorial. But I have a question. Is it possible to take capacitors from let's say, a mother board and put them into a monitor? Or how about a spare Imac capacitors for it's monitor and place them into my monitor that I'm planning to repair?

OriginalSegaMan: thanks for the video. glad to see its not hard to fix. : )

mwm1962: This worked perfectly! I was going to go buy a new one, but took a minute to look it up on the internet and boom there was your vid. Took me about an hour, this was my first capacitor replacement and now I want to fix everything. I had no problems and was stoked when it fired up on the first attempt. Thank you!

yambo59: @garagecrap you are partially right, theres two reason these fail, first is low grade caps, second is too close to a heat source as you mentioned. the heat sink bakes the electrolyte and shortens the life. I used hi temp caps for this reason - I just did this repair, and noticed there was plenty of room on the board to put these caps elsewhere, but they want us to buy more monitors and you can guess the rest-lol crooks --

MrKarbo51: Hello there. Thanks for that video. It helped me fix a ViewSonic VX724 which was almost the same as the one on your video. There was no image and a friend of mine was to throw it to garbage. Cost me around 5 dollars of capacitors and tada... and about an hour work. The only thing is that once in a while, it blinks. There is like a camera flash in the center of the screen, but it keeps on working well. What would you think is the problem? Thanks for answering.

Daniel Princ: Thanks for the video, helped me fix mine ViewSonic as well, easy solution...

JonskyGBR: You sir, are an absolute legend! My VX912 started doing the blinking thing. Whipped it open, took the two bulging capacitors out, popped round to Maplins(UK) but they only had one 470μf25v in store. So I bought two 1000μf25v ones at the hugely satisfying cost of £0.84 ($1.29), popped them in and switched it on, no more blinking! And all in less than an hour, Fantabulous!!!

Brian Tucker: AWESOME I have a viewsonic VA1703wb came on for 2 sec then nothing.Keep in mind I have never done anything with eletronics in my life beside hit power button I watched a few vids on here borrowed a soldering gun 4 dollars in caps and 3 hours later[anyone who knows what they are doing prob half hour 45 min]like BRAND NEW.The first thing I have ever done correct woohoo

randybunny: Hey, I want to thank you for the video post. I have a VX922 and was having the green blinking light of death. I popped the case and all but the 400v cap were showing signs of bad bloating. I replaced just the 470 caps as they were the only ones available and my 5 yr old monitor is no longer dead. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Not only have you given my monitor a new lease on life, but now I have purchased the gear for a home business. THANK YOU! :)

Den10D: Thanks it works! I change all capacitors with new ones and working fine! My monitor is VX922!
