Question about ViewSonic VA1912WB 19" WideScreen Monitor
I have built in speakers in my view sonic va1912wb monitor. i currently do not use them, in favor of a better option for sound.
on occasion it would seem like.. bright, or certain color combination on my screen causes them to BUZZ. usually while playing a game, i don't see(hear?) a problem. mostly happens while browsing the web. however, im playing WoW and the zone i am in has a LOT of white snow. and the only way to get the buzzing to stop is to look up at the dark gray sky. the sound resembles high powered speakers that are turned up all the way (to 11 hehe) with no signal being sent to them, just the power it would need in case some signal were to come... i hope that makes sense... because it is terribly annoying. the only thing i havent tried is actually opening up the damn thing and cutting the wires or taking the built in speakers out. the speakrs are muted at the moment, and i have tried running signal to them to maybe..."give them something to do" but to no avail.
SOURCE: memory recall
From the Users Manual for this monitor: "Memory Recall returns the adjustments back to factory settings if the display is operating in a factory Preset Timing Mode listed in the Specifications of this manual. - Exception: This control does not affect changes made with the User Color control, Language Select or Power Lock setting." When the monitor is asking "Memory Recall OK?" it either wants to initiate a settings Recall, or it's asking if the Recall was successful. In either case, the "Memory Recall OK?" message is supposed to go away when you push either button 1 or button 2. If it does this when you are adjusting settings then it's likely just doing what you told it to, even if you don't realize you told it to do that. It's also possible for one of the settings buttons to be stuck down and this is causing it to try and change the Recall settings. Push each of the buttons on the monitor and pay attention to what each one feels like as you push on it. If one of them feels different from the others, it's likely stuck. Tapping lightly on the settings buttons or on the panel beside them will usually free up a stuck button. If a button is stuck and won't loosen up by tapping beside it, you might need to pry up on the edges of the button VERY gently with the sharp tip of a pointy kitchen knife. If it's doing this when you did not touch any of the settings buttons at all, then this is likely being caused by a dendrite whisker or faulty circuit trace inside the monitor and you'll need to take the monitor to a service technician for repair. But remember to contact Viewsonic first and go to whatever Service Center that they advise, since a repair of this type may be covered under warranty. One other thing you could try before spending money on it is simply to change the Timing mode in the Windows display settings. Go to "Control Panel > Display", then select the "Settings" tab and click the "Advanced" button. Select the "Monitor" tab and change the screen timing to a different Hertz value in the "Screen refresh rate" menu box. Don't forget to save these settings by clicking "Apply" and "OK" to close all of the Windows settings windows. Hope that helps solve your problem...

Problem seemed to be a short in the power cable to the monitor. Replaced the power cable and for the time, the monitor is working correctly.

The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

It may have backlights inverter board problem, check the two surface mounted fuses, also can be bad lamps. Also verify that the AC adapter is putting out correct voltage with load.
