Viewsonic VX2233WM LCD DVI issue

I just purchased a 22" Viewsonic LCD. It is an HD1080p monitor supporting a max resolution of 1920x1080. I have it connected to an ATI x600 Radeon video card via DVI. The monitor has a DVI-D input, and the video card has a DVI-I output.

The problem I am having is that when I turn off the monitor while the computer is on then turn it back on, the monitor does not detect the DVI signal. This also happens when I switch the input source on the monitor. The only way to restore video over the DVI connection is to either reset my PC or just reseat the DVI cable.

When I boot the computer, the I get my bios screens and I have video when I boot into windows XP. I can let them monitor go into sleep mode and it wakes up fine, and really the monitor works all the time. It does not shut itself off nor have I ever lost the screen while working. Only when I shut the power off or switch inputs does it lose the DVI signal and it can't seem to detect again when switched back. I don't really think it is a monitor issue but I do not understand much about the EDID and DCC connection to know if there is something kind of corruption in its plug and play file or if its pixel timing is off.

    I have a very similar problem - my monitor (same model) doesn't turn on with the computer. I have to use a different monitor to start up, and then switch. I feel this has happened before with older Viewsonic monitors, but the fixes are many and varied. Am trying to contact their support and going through the fixes to see which one works.

I had the same problem, you must call Viewsonic to change your screen. The DVI input on the screen is dead.

Then your monitor is worn out. You could take it to a repair shop to get it fixed or buy a new one. Hope this helps!?

Please rate solution - Thanks

You are having a firmware issue or the main board is bad. Since you cannot get the monitor to work from either connector, and since this is a high resolution monitor, I doubt you are having any operating system issues. You can test the monitor on a laptop or another computer if you desire, however from the symptom it looks like the main board requires some attention. Contact Viewsonic at viewsonic.com or call their 800 number for service information. You could order a main board, but it may not have the ddc data programmed (similar to firmware) so you may have to bring it or send it to a shop for service. BTW, they have three year warranties. I would recommend calling Viewsonic.

Won't display 1920x1080


I think you could have loaded the driver for a different model with 16:10 aspect ratio. Uninstall that driver.

Can you connect using the DVI port - get a DVI cable if your computer has a DVI port. If your computer has HDMI get a HDMI-DVI cable. DVI port will display max resolution - even without driver.

My ps3 wont show up on my tv screen it is a 42 inch plasma it will not show up it keeps saying invailed format what do i do?


Your 22 monitor is set up (most likely) with a max resolution on 1650x1050 and you ps3 stays set to that even when you use it on your dads 1080p TV (1920x1080) and since your 22 in monitor is a non-standard resolution (in the TV world that is ) ie 720p = 1280x720 and 1080p = 1920x1080 it has to adjust to the closest resolution (your ps3) but sometimes the auto switching of resolutions doesn't work like it should..it just doesn't work sometimes. I suggest that when you take it to your dads you adjust the resolution to 720p ahead of time (a resolution both the 22 monitor and tv should be able to handle ) and when you get to his house it should work at least enough to see everything and then when already there you can adjust up to the higher 1080p (1920x1080). Then adjust back to 720p before you go home again. Sorry for the long winded post.

Here is a link to resolutions explained in case it helps.

Does it do the same if you hook it up to the desk top PC?
Common problem in this VX series are due to bad DC filter caps which can cause a lot of starnge symptom, see pictures here:

The power supply may not be stable enough to handle higher resolution mode.

Hi gurmeet,

What I suspected from your description of problem is that there is some kind of compatibility issue or content protection when you plug in an additional HDMI to DVI converter.

I am also using an Airtel HD connection, though however, I wouldn't need any kind of converter because I am directly connecting HDMI cable to my LCD and it works like a wonder. I set up my box output resolution to 1080i and there is no display resolution mismatch. Not even at other resolutions.

Airtel is using 1920x1080 resolution in signal transmission, so the possibility of 1079 from there end is ruled out, otherwise, the same problem would have been observed when direct HDMI cable is being used. I hope you understand my point.

Now you might also ask why you weren't able to see this problem when you connect the monitor to your PC graphics card. I would like to tell you that graphic cards are very versatile and does have the capability of 1:1 pixel mapping, so there you wouldn't see any such problem.

read this link for more http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdtodvico.html , where a person is able to match resolution using a similar converter.

I believe the converter you use isn't able to do 1:1 pixel mapping and is actually downgrading the resolution which your monitor is not able to support.

You can try out other resolution type from the STB and if you still see similar problems, then you may need to get an alternative converter.
Follow these steps to change the STB resolution type;
Enter the Menu from STB remote -> scroll to 'My Settings' -> Enter 'System Setup' -> 'HD Setup'. Here you change to a lower resolution and press ok from remote.

1920x1080 resolution-entire screen not viewable


This also happens to my vga connection to my TV.
I used my tv remote "auto" button to re-size it to fit correctly.
If your monitor/TV does not have the adjustment, you may need to
supply your vga compatible device with your monitor's driver software.
This tells your computer what monitor specifications you have.

Optimal resolution problem, edge of desktop outside screen


Your screen probably wont recognise the dvi cable if the dsub is plugged in, you will have to use the buttons on the monitor to adjust the settings to dvi rather than it automatically using the dsub. also, ever tried adjusting the aspect ratio? to make it shrink abit to fit your screen.

Out of range external monitor


The max resolution supported by that LCD HDTV is 1366 x 768. If your screen resolution in XP is set higher than that, you'll run into issues. Reduce your screen resolution first, then run the nVidia multiple display setup.

Cannot get correct resolution


1. It could be limitation of your video card. Older cards would not support high resolution for LCD monitors.
2. Be sure to use DVI(digital) output from your video card. You will not get a good resolution with VGA(analog)
3. When installing driver for a monitor sometimes you will get a chose to install analog(VGA) or digital(DVI) driver. Choose the correct driver.

Good luck!
