ViewSonic G90f power-on confusion

I don't have much experience with desktop monitors (since I was younger), and I recently plugged in a ViewSonic G90f CRT into a computer I recently built. Whenever I turn on the computer and then press the power button on the monitor, it turns on, says OFF MODE IN 5 SECONDS, and turns off. I don't really know what to do to make the monitor do its job. It's probably obvious, but as I said before, I don't have much experience with these. Thanks in advance to whoever finds a solution!

SOURCE: Switching to "off mode"

Sounds like your video adapter settings have been wedged. If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can use the following steps. 1) Boot the laptop into safe mode. Boot into safe mode with networking support if possible. This can be done by tapping the F8 key as the computer first turns on. 2) Once you are at the Desktop, right click on My Computer and select Manage. 3) In the window that appears, select Device Manager from the menu on the left. 4) Find Display Adapters on the right and click the plus sign. This will list the video adapter that you have. NOTE: WRITE this down EXACTLY. You may need to go and get drivers for this. Seeing this is an older model, I doubt you'll need it, but better to be safe then sorry. 5) Go to your manufacturers support web site and download these drivers. You may not need them, but better to be safe then sorry. NOTE: Skip step 5 if you did not boot with network support or cannot get to the Internet. This can be done from normal mode. 6) Right click on the display adpater and choose un-install. Hit OK on the window that appears and reboot the machine when the process is done. 7) The machine will take longer than usual to boot, as Windows XP is re-discovering the video adapter and resetting everything to the defaults. When it is done booting, the screen may look weird since the settings are now the defaults. You can the set them to what you want by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties. Then go to the settings tab. 8) IF it did not re-discover the video adapter (this can be confirmed through the device manager), then go ahead and install the drivers. Windows Update will most likely also have the drivers.

SOURCE: ViewSonic Monitor has trouble to wake up after been shut down?

Ok sounds to me like a power supply problem.. this a a fairly common symptom. I suggest that as a temporary fix you set the monitor to NOT turn the power off to the monitor in sleep mode if possible, in your power settings for the monitor.

SOURCE: Analog Power Saving Mode

Firstly check the connecting cable from the screen to the computer at both ends. Ensure that the thumbscrews that keep the connector in place are tight. Has the PC been moved recently? Any chance the cable could have been put in the wrong place? You can get the installation manual on the following link to see where that cables should go: http://us.lge.com/filedown.do?filepath=1000000757&fileName=L1750B-BF.pdf Try resetting the monitor by pressing the "Auto/SET" button on the front panel for a few seconds with the PC on. If that fails you can do a full factory reset on the monitor by using the on screen menu and navigation to the "reset" function on the setings (gearwheel) page. This is described in the manual page A12. If all this fails then disconnect the cable to the monitor, the monitor should display "no input signal" if it does suspect the PC graphics card is faulty.

It is possible that you can adjust your refresh rate. You may need another monitor to set the rate.

You may also be able to boot into safe mode. Try pressing F8 as soon as the system completes the POST (if you can see it). From safe mode, you can adjust the rate.

Can you get anything from the monitor without connecting to a computer? You should try to reset the monitor to its default settings.

ViewSonic VX2235wm monitor looses power ...


I've not seen this problem on a ViewSonic but have on a Dell flat screen. The fix was the obvious one: the power connection on the back of the monitor was loose -- have you checked this. Also if the power cord is too tight it could be the problem. Other then this, it sounds like a short inside the monitor.

Hope this helps

Check the information at Viewsonic's website regarding their warranty:

http://www.viewsonic.com/support/warranties/limited-warranty/

If you have your proof-of-purchase and it shows the monitor is less than a year old, it would be covered. You would need to follow the procedure on their website to have the unit repaired or replaced, but it would not be your job to try to fix it.

Dead monitor,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,lcd viewsonic


If the power supply is not wqrking then it is the invertor unit that has dies.
Replace the monitor is the best advice- If it that recent out of warranty may be worth contacting 'viewsonic to see if they will discount you one.
