Having problems with your ViewSonic VA1912w 19" LCD Monitor ?

Viewsonic VA1912 replacement lamp

\015 Hi! \015\012I have a viewsonic VA1912 PC monitor/screen, I`m sure the lamp is not working, I can just see a website showing on the screen but it is very dark, can I take the back off easily and replace the lamp? Many Thanks\015

Answers :

Apparently there's a 3 year warranty on the back light of these monitors so you may be able to send it off to viewsonic.

Replacing the back light yourself is certainly possible, depending on how confident you are with taking electronic equipment apart. Sourcing such a replacement may not be easy and might also cost more than the monitor's worth.

If you do proceed, care should certainly be taken so as to not to expose yourself to a dangerous shock; if you're not sure what you're doing then probably best leaving it alone, maybe find a friendly local nerd. Leaving the unit unplugged for 24 hours would be an essential precaution.

I have a Samsung 19" model 923NW monitor. This is my 2nd of this model that has gone bad on me. I decided to pull the second one appart and noticed that the back light lamps are burned. One side is burned so bad that the ends of the lamps are completely burned off and cracked. The other side, both the lamps are intact, but shows blackened on the ends as well. I need to know what lamps I will need to replace these? Diameter and lenth. Thanks T
