Question about ViewSonic VA712B 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I've got both a mac and pc with digital connectors to test the connection, tried switching dvi cables, and fiddled with every setting, but for some reason can't get a digital signal to appear. Only analog. When there's nothing but a dvi connection then I get a "No Signal" Message on the screen. When both analog and digital are connected, the display switches to analog after I try selecting digital. The digital connection worked fine until about a week ago.
Seems like this was already answered? But once you've checked against the owner's manual and ruled out the PC, I would suspect the signal / video board inside the monitor. May have gotten a surge or static, etc.
