Question about ViewSonic Graphic VG2021m LCD Monitor

Viewsonic monitor VG2021m won't awaken

I've had this monitor and laptop computer for a year or so and it's been fine. Starting last week, I notice that, first thing in the morning, the screen is black and shaking the mouse for at least one minute does not help it. I've tried turning the monitor off, but the button stays blue and it doesn't seem to shut off - perhaps I need to hold it in longer.

Unplugging the power cord and replugging temporaily solves the problem, but I'd rather solve it permanently.

Any ideas?

    I was referrring to the power cord of the monitor, not the computer, by the way.

    However, I cannot get mine to turn on at all. The power is on, based on the blue light. I did some further investigating, and I can vaguely see some activity when I hold my flashlight right up to the screen. So, I am assuming the the lamp in the monitor is burned out or not functioning correctly. Is there a way to replace it? If so, is it economical, or should I "file 13" this monitor and buy a new one?

    I have almost the same problem with the same VG2021m LCD monitor - the blue light was staying lit & monitor won't turn off for about 2 months (monitor is 1 year old). Yesterday, after turning it off & on because of aforementioned problem, a one-off menu came on top right of the screen & while trying to exit from it, v... something got increased & now the monitor shows extra sharp (washed out images) on the screen. I have tried both Analog & Digital inputs, but the problem is the same. Now what shall I do? Is there any Settings Reset Utility or BIOS Update to resolve the issue? Please! please! someone help me on this..............

I understand the vg2021m has a 3 year warranty. Phone number for Product Support is (800) 688-6688. Give 'em a call and see if they won't fix it for free or some nominal charge. (OK! So this is the cowards way out.)

This is 2006 model year, more likely to have bad caps problem in the power supply, look for caps with leaking/bulging tops first, also look to see if you do have 12~18vdc feeding the inverter circuits.

Viewsonic VG2021m Image Vanishes on Start Up


It is the picture picture board on your monitor that is malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on, but the display screen goes blank after a few seconds, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

My ViewSonic VG2021M LCD computer screen has died on me. For the past two weeks it took 2 or 3 minutes to "warm up" before it would start working, and not it has completely stopped. Some have said that it...

I can easily see 4 bad caps (black case) with bulging tops, the other two caps (green case) should also be replaced at the same time, use only good caps, PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY, higher value and voltage are OK to use. Learn more about what bad caps look like:

ViewSonic VG2021m - hard to wake up from sleep mode for a few weeks. Now screen flashes on for a second and goes back to black. Anyone else have this problem?

Check your connections first. Make sure your video card is not loose. See if you can ge to your setup screen. Pressing del or F1 during startup. If you can get to your startup screen with no problem, then it may be your video driver. If it still does the same thing try the monitor in another computer. If it works, it's your video card, if not it's your monitor.

Resolution problem of viewsonic VG2021m as the second monitor of thinkpad t61p

Go into the NVidia control panel, create a custom resolution (for the ViewSonic VG2021m, you want 1400x1050, 60Hz), and test it.  When the test asks you if it looks ok and you click "yes", it *still* is not activated-- it is simply added as one of the resolutions available for the monitor, and goes back to the same setting you had before... so it looks like it didn't work.  But then, if you go under "Change resolution", you'll see your new setting is available there.  Choose it, and you are good.

It's working for me, on my T61.
