    I have 2 of these same model Viewsonic LCD monitors that exhibit the same behaviour. One of them would do this for about 5 minutes and then (eventually !) stay running. The other one had been set aside because of this issue, and I don't have any other info from the users.

    My suspicion is that is a failing power supply or transformer/regulator. These monitors have full mains power direct to the monitor, so there must be some voltage regulation or step-down for their operation.

    I am looking for a service technician to look at these and see if they are viable to be repaired. I'll report back when I know more.

Actually the common problem of viewsonic LCD monitor is bad electrolytic capacitor at primary, secondary & inverter area, if your lcd using power adaptor test the voltage out, use analog or digital tester range 50v dc, if the voltage out is accurate dont be sure to your adaptor working good, open it and find bad electrolytic capacitor inside. That is common problem of viewsonic LCD monitor could cause of display flashing then back to black after few seconds. Suspect inverter area lastly mainboard.

Gud Luck!

    If the LCD automatic off after few seconds, voltage test the secondary of power supply for normal output.Check inverter area

    the two FET IC N and P Channel, the two IC's were used to drive each high voltage transformer. Check these for shorted Pico fuse or turned high ohm, shorted or leaky push pull transistor, ballast capacitor, burnt pins or loose connections in the backlights connector, check inverter IC use this site for searching part number. Lastly suspect the mainboard.

Flicking on and off

If the LCD screen flicks on and off and you can see a dim image on the screen when you view at a sharp angle, then most likely you have a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Monitor is black. Press power on monitor/screen shows for 1 sec

You will need a new monitor screen. I have had two screens go on me recently and what you describes normally happens
