Question about ViewSonic VX924 19" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

The monitor is turning off by itself and the power light keeps blinking

As I said on the subject, the monitor is doing this more frequently now, when I turn off the computer or putting it on stand by, the monitor is not saying "no signal", instead is going blank and the power light is blinking, and after that it's impossible to turn it on again, the only way is leaving it like that and try later or shut down the computer and turn it on again, but either way I have to wait, It seems like it's a heating problem, I don't know. A little help would be appreciated.

The power supply or video card is probaby bad. Since they usually die when the backlight inverter goes out you can pickup one cheap on ebay to use for parts and it's likely to have the part you need.

Screen loses power frequently. Comes back on by itself

If it does comes back on by itself, make sure that the vga cable is properly connected on the vga port on your computer. Does the led light on the monitor turns from green to amber? if yes, check for connection cables and the power cable.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

My monitors7540 sow menu and blinks frequently


I think the problem with your monitor is that, the picture board on the monitor is malfunctioning that is why it keeps going blank after a minute.

What you need to do is to replace the picture board on your LCD monitor, replacing the picture board will solve the problem, because the picture board on the monitor at the moment is bad and will need to be replace.

Replace the picture board and you will see that the problem will not repeat itself again.

Take care.

My monitor plugs in blue power button blinks why ?

There is probably a failure of part of the power supply pcb. If the light blinks and the screen is totally dark, this is the likely cause. The usual culprit is decective capacitors on the pcb. See other posts on this subject here. This failure may be intermittant; in other words, it may not always occur.

Monitor goes blank after about 30 minutes. Then you can shut it off and turn it back on and it will work for another 30 minutes or so. What could cause this?

check your power settings (run>control>power options>change plan settings>advanced options>display)
you will see the setting for your monitor to power off
it should be set to 2 hrs or more if you plan on watching a movie or keeping the monitor on without having to frequently touch the keyboard or mouse.
turning adaptive display on may affect your situation as well. try switching it on.

This should do the trick for you. If not you may have an issue with either your video card or your monitors power supply.
(if the light stays on on the monitor when it goes blank but it doesnt repsond to the mouse or the keyboard, its a setting on your system or the hardware itself)
Good Luck!!

Moniter won't turn on/power light blinks green

Yeah, I called Dell yesterday, and they said it was a problem that I could not fix myself. Whether that's true or not, I don't know, but my monitor was still under warranty, so they shipped me a replacement right away. I already got it this morning. 

FYI: Their monitors carry a three year warranty.

E machine monitor

Check the settings control panel, power options to make sure the setting is not engage to power saving after "minutes" if it is change to the require time or disable, then apply the settings and exit. if this is not the problem, the other most common problem with these emachines and random and frequent unplanned shutdowns is a the motherboard itself.

Check some of the other posts as it is probably just a bad capacitor or two and very easy to fix if you can do that sort of thing. I did and mine is back up and running.
