I cant get sound on my viewsonic va520


You need to add some information - what is the source for the video that you are viewing on the VA520? The VA520 has no speakers in it. If it is a desktop computer, look on the back of the computer for a green 3.5 mm stereo audio port. This is your speaker out connection. Plug in any set of computer speakers or headphones. (Computer speakers may require a USB connection or to be plugged into an AC outlet to power the speakers.) You can find cheap speakers for under $20; good speakers will be more expensive. With a laptop or some desktops, you'll find a headphone jack on the front of the computer. (This will be labeled with a small picture of a set of headphones.) The headphone jack is also a 3.5 mm stereo port.

I hope this helps.

(laptops usually have internal speakers; most desktops do not have any internal speaker anymore. If you have headphones with RCA audio plugs, you can use a RCA F/F to 3.5 mm M audio adapter to use them with the computer. A stereo system may not work with a computer.)

I was given a ViewSonic 520 by my father, but he couldn't find the power cord or USB cable. What do I need, and where in my area can I get them? David Hart Fort Worth, Texas 76119


You don't need a USB cable to plug in the monitor. The VA520 requires a standard power cable, available at any electronics or computer store. Same one used for a computer power supply.

Upgraded OS to Windows 7. Now can only get resolution of 800/600. Viewsonic does not know what a VA520 is. Any help?


The problem is not at your monitor, it's on the VGA card; there are no drivers installed. Clarify me the brand / model of your VGA (or in case of embeded at the motherboard post the motherboard's brand / model) in order to try to locate and post you back the drivers for Windows 7.

Waiting clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

Monitor will not light up, black screen.


what is your monitor is it lcd or crt? is the power on indicator of the monitor lights up? which is usually a color green, if it lights up, try to reset the vga cable of your monitor to the video card of your pc and this time do it tightly but not too tight. But if the power on indicator does not light up, the problem lies within your monitor. Have your monitor be check by a professional technician.

What voltage is the dc adapter?


You will need at least a 4 amp rated regulated 12 Volt power supply.
These are commercialy available from most electronics parts suppliers.
They come on a circuit board. You can mount it in your own case and
use the original Viewsonic wire end. If you do a google search for 12
volt reglated power supplies you should find many of these.

However, with a second-hand Sprint AC adapter with 3A,
12v adapter, the screen blinks on and off
intermittently. Obviously there is some difference here between a class
2 adapter and a power supply box.

VA520 Resolution Message


Have you tried via the Control Panel/Display function?  The driver provides the means but Windows provides access to those settings.

Starts up looking good then in 3 minutes, all hell...


Go to the ViewSonic site and read through their knowledge base on your monitor.

Then once you familiarize yourself with electronics safety by reading through a basics manual once or five times, and once you've got it, open up the monitor cold and/or hot, and find out where they spilled Coca-cola down the back or whatever might be suggested by the ViewSonic knowledge base.  Lather, rinse, repeat; when the monitor acts right, then stop.

Help.. LCD colors


Reconnect your cables!  Somehow you don't have red and green in there, just shades of blue, right?  And it doesn't depend on whether you're running a browser or something else?

Make sure everything's tight and if you can (but only if tightening cables didn't work,) check that your computer's putting out a normal signal by testing another monitor with that computer.
