Question about ViewSonic VX910 19" LCD Monitor
Just started doing this: When the PC is turned on after being off for more than a reboot the VP930b begins blinking about every 5 seconds.
I get about a 1/4 second to see the desktop image that I should see all the time. So i think windows is running ok.
I THINK my video card is ok. Its a geforce and the program Smart Doctor says its ok.
I changed the digital cable and tried both Dsub ports and it did the same thing. I have unplugged all power cords and video cables on all ends and replaced them. no change
The wierder part is that when it is blinking, it will NOT allow me to shut if off via the power button on the monitor. The only way is to unplug it.
While it is blinking, the green power light blinks to amber and back to green continually and the on off button does not function.
At first it would do this for about a minute and of course i was wiggling cords to see and it came back on. Now it doesnt matter what I do.
So i just rebooted and it came on like nothing is wrong. The entire computer is new except for the monitor.
My brother does mess with it continually adding HD and whatever else, do you think something could have been messed up during one of his tamperintgs?
Id leave it on if it didnt run up the power bill $200.00
SO...... is it going bad?
Is it an easy fix that costs less than a new/used one? I really like it and would like to keep it if its not shot. im used to the old dinosaurs that take up half the table and give you half the view. :(
Heres what youre goin to do if youre handy with tools. open the Monitor and look where the transformer is , check around for any burnt or cold solder and re solder again , that will take care of that problem , hope this helps AJ
