A monitor does not normally save any states such as sleep. If unplugging the monitor from the power source for ten to twenty minutes and re-plugging it in does not fix the problem check and see if the monitor's menu comes up. Even in sleep mode, the menu for the monitor should show. If it does, try resetting the monitor to factory default settings. If the menu does not show up, then there is an issue with the monitor.
I can tell I have repaired a lot of monitors in my time what you have to do is tear it down, see if any of the capacitors are puffy, if they are replace them. You can buy repair kits for LCD tv;s most folks throw them out. I get them out of the garbage all the time and just fix the capacitors on the boards and they work fine after this. However if you are not good at doing this sort of thing your investment will warrant a throw away product. By the time it is said and done, The cost of repair you can get companies that do this online for under $50.00, for the parts and repair. It is worth it or just go and buy another monitor or get the repair kits for your model. LCD repair accessories and parts that is what I use to do the repairs.
Your screen might be going bad. Try plugging an another monitor and see if it works or has the same problem. If the other monitor works, it's definitely your screen is bad. If the other monitor fails and does the same thing, then the video card in the computer is bad.
hi do you mean you are asking for the blinking codes on your viewsonic pc monitor?. usually lcd monitor for pc has no blinking codes, if your monitor just only a blinking indicator and won't turn on, you must check first the source from your pc if their is a signal to turn on the monitor. if just blinking only then won't turn on you must check the power supply of the monitor usually the main cause is bulging capacitor. just replace it with the same value and rating thanks for consulting the fixya good luck.
First double check to make sure no cords came loose - you may even want to unplug and replug the power cable both out of the computer and the wall.
If you do not have a loose cord, listen closely when you attempt to turn the computer on - is it making any noise? Do any lights come on? If not, you likely have a bad power supply.
If the computer does come to life, just no reaction on the screen, make sure your monitor is plugged in and turned on, and try unplugging and replugging the cord connecting the computer and the monitor.
If this still does not get it, you may be dealing with either a graphics card or monitor problem. If you have an alternate plug for the monitor to go - try that, or if you have a different monitor to use, try that.
This should either greatly narrow down or fix the problem for you.
Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the Power button until you get a message saying "OSD Unlocked". If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait 20 seconds and try again. Fix Two:
Turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD. Fix Three:
Turn off the monitor, press down the Menu button and then turn on the monitor. Wait 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD. Fix Four:
The Menu button may be stuck in a pressed in position. To get it "unstuck" you'll usually need to open up the monitor. This could be tricky unless you know what you're doing. Unfortunately there are too many models of monitor for me to provide detailed instructions. If you have warranty this is where you want to contact the manufacturer.

Ensure the video cable is connected (and connected to the correct video port).
Turn off the monitor using the monitor's power button and then restart the monitor.
Cycle the power on the monitor as follows:
Turn off the monitor. The power light on the monitor should be off. Leave the computer turned on.
Unplug the power cord.
Wait 5 seconds.
Plug in the power cord.
Press the power button on the monitor to turn on the monitor.
One of two things happens:
The image from the computer displays on the monitor and you can use the computer again. This indicates that the monitor was unable to detect that the computer had awakened from suspend mode. Turn the monitor off when it is not being used or disable suspend mode. For some computers, updating the BIOS corrects these types of suspend problems.
The power light on the monitor comes on but the screen displays one of the messages again. The monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer that it can detect and use. Continue using these steps to adjust the Windows display resolution to the Monitor's native (default) resolution
Connect the monitor to another computer that you know is working to determine if the monitor should be serviced or replaced:
If the monitor displays an image from another computer, you know that the monitor works. Troubleshoot the video connection and graphics adapter on the computer.
If the monitor remain blank when connected to another computer, the monitor signal processing hardware may be bad. The monitor should be repaired or replaced.
