If you have a power LED on, I don't think the power cords are at fault. Check the screen at an angle when you expect video to be present (PC on) to see if you can espy any video that might be there. It sounds like the backlight or its power supply (inverter) has failed. Without it, the video can be present but not visible except for some dim traces when lit by ambient lighting.

Viewsonic VG2021m monitor no longer showing a picture


Hi!
there are possible reasons why your monitor shows nothing on your screen...

First, you need to check if the power cable of your monitor is well connected to a wall socket or AVR (and that you are sure there is supply output current on the AVR or in the wall outlet)

IF found that power cable is fix and secure... my suggestion is you bring the monitor to a credible technician...Because the possible reason why only black is seen on your screen, is because the backlight inverter could be busted already.. the backlight inverter which is located on the upper and lower back edge of the monitor is the light source responsible for giving image display of your lcd monitor.. Another reason could be is a deffective high voltage ballast transformer which is responsible for generating high votlage supply for the backlight....

It is too risky for you to do the repair by yourself without proper knowledge and right tools to do this.. So don't waste time consult a technician and or possible avail of the warranty if there is any...

Hope it is clear now to you..


Much appreciated if you rate this help.. thanks..

We have the monitor hooked to a docking station for a laptop. I can not view the screen on the Viewsonic, but does display on laptop. I have been able to do an extende monitor view, but not the main view....


when you connect external monitor to a laptop u get two options in the monitor section of graphic properties tab

1.) extended
2.) clone

it is clear from ur post that u are using extended view

try using clone mode then both laptop screen and external monitor will show the main screen


other method is to disable the laptop screen and just allow external monitor to work, in this case laptop screen shows nothing but external monitor shows main screen

My monitor won't come on, the green light blinks, but nothing shows up on the screen at all. i've already changed the video card but that did not fix it. prior to changing the video card, once in a while...


try shining a light directly on the screen to see if youve got a backlight failure, if you have there will be an image on the screen but nothing lighting it from behind thus making it seem blank, if that is not the case id start with the vga cable and work from there

No Power LED and Nothing on the screen


Check your power supply to your screen cause it should at least show a amber light at the screen to show that there is power but no proper signal from the computer.

So below are step to check the power supply to your monitor. Assuming if you use a different monitor on your pc it works

1. Check your fuse both internal and external
2. check if power is receipted by the LCD

Permanent Red Line Down the left side of the screen


This can't be repaired, the LCD panel is a sealed unit. if you can't live with it then you need a new monitor
