Question about ViewSonic VX910 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor Blinks when PC powers up, wont let me turn it off

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. :(

    Thanks JULIANFIX for getting back rapidly! I dont know that much about the insides but it doesnt sound difficult. im handy with a soldering iron.


    I really didnt want to have to get a new one and its weird how i can get it to work sometimes. just takes a few reboots but ill open it up.

    ill try it after the holidays and get back here to say if it worked.

This is usually a sign that there is no signal going to your monitor, check all your cables and then reboot.

Syncmaster 932Gw stays in standby

Its possible that the cable from the laptop to the monitor is damaged. I would #1 make sure that the connection into the pc and into the monitor are both snug, if they are just slightly off it will keep the monitor from powering on. If they are snug, try another cable (if you have one) or hook the monitor to another pc (possibly your laptop, if it has a video out). Let me know if that solves the problem.

It could be the Monitor, the VGA adapter, or the PC itself. If you power on the monitor without anything connected to it, do you ever see anything on the display?

If not, it is probably the Monitor. If yes, it is likely the vga adapter and/or PC.
