Question about ViewSonic VX924 19" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Big Problem Monitor started blinking off and on every few moments, and when it blinked back on it said ANALOG in the bottom corner as if the sensor was just picking up again or something. Also, the screen went blank white for awhile, and I could see the desktop if I looked from above, but not straight on. This just started happening last night. Do I need to replace the monitor?

    Haha, a year later.

    Well I sent the monitor back to Viewsonic as it was under warranty and they fixed it. Looks like it was the inverter board after all.

    Thanks for the help!

    A year later? Well, okay! I sent it back to Viewsonic and they shipped me out a new one as it was under warranty, or they fixed it. As it turns out it was in fact the inverter board.

Hi Nvidiot, Sounds like the backlight inverter board. It's a very common problem. LCD's use four small Cold Compact Fluorescent bulbs to back light the display. (thats what gives the LCD it's brightness allowing you to see it) The inverter board runs these lights and when they go bad they will typically show symptoms like you have or the monitor power light comes on and you have either no display or a very dim display. If you ever have one that has no display but the power light is on you can check by shining a flashlight directly into the LCD from the front (right into the screen) if you can see an image then it's either the inverter board (most likely) or the CCFL bulbs have gone bad. The inverter board and CCFL's are replaceable. Good Luck, El Duderino

How do I turn off the Samsung sync-master p2050 monitor?


If it doesn't turn off by holding the power button down for 10 seconds, then it cannot be turned off by the power button alone, like most modern lcd monitors. Most modern monitors goes into standby mode. To completely cut power, you must unplug the power cable.
I've enclosed a link to the install manual for reference.

Why does the power light keep blinking


The blinking light is wrongfully indicating that there is not enough water in the tank. The sensor is a small magnet that is floating in a compartment at the bottom of the water tank. (The black square in the corner) You shold be able to see it. Check if it is stuck at the bottom and if it is floating in its chamber. If that is OK, the sensor inside the coffee maker that is reading the magnet might either have come faulty or dispaced (due to a shock?). That would need a disasembly of the coffee maker.

Sounds as though you have a backlight issue. How old is the monitor?
The keyhole with the lock sign is for a security lock to lock the monitor to a desk so it cannot be stolen.

Our Flat screen monitor comes on for a few moments and turns right back off any idea why it can be doing that?


it turns on as a "self-check" but if it doesn't get a correct input signal it goes to sleep.
Or you might have it going to sleep in settings.

Check to see if the power light stays on or blinks when it goes off. blinking means sleep mode

Moniter keeps blinking analog and digital at the


This happens when your monitor cannot detect a VGA or Digital port, either on the monitor it self or at the video card. If you don't hook it up to anything at all and turn it on it will do this.

Step #1
First make sure that you have the cables properly connected to the monitor and to the video card using either a VGA port (blue one) or the Digital port (grey or white one). If this doesn't fix it move on to step #2.

Step #2
Try troubleshooting your video card by hooking up another monitor (if available) and see if it too is inactive. If you test with a proven functional monitor and it wont activate then you are most likely looking at a faulty video card. If your test monitor works, you may be looking at either a faulty cable or a faulty brand new monitor (it happens).

**Note: craigslist.org in the "free stuff" section is a great place to find free CRT monitors for free if you don't have one to use yourself.**

Also try to hook up your Samsung monitor to another PC (if available) to see if you get different results. If you do that and it works, that is a sign that you have a faulty video card in the first PC.

**Note: Depending on how you are trying to use your monitor (PC's only monitor, or as a secondary monitor for a PC or laptop) you may need to make sure that in your display settings you have the box checked that says "extend my windows desktop to this monitor" (Windows XP). If you are intending to use it as a secondary you will need to have this box checked or it wont be recognized.**

If you determine that the most likely cause is that your monitor or cable supplied are faulty, Samsung or your retailer should help you get a replacement. Both will ask you to verify the results of steps 1 and 2 before honoring a warranty.

I hope that this information helps. If it doesn't, post back with more information and I will try to help you find a viable solution

Good Luck!

Flashing green power light - Black screen


I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard
