Viewsonic VA1930WM - Dead

This monitor fell off a desk and now it is dead as a doornail. Not even power.

Is there some kind of "shock" shutdown that am I not aware of? The thing only fell 3 ft and it was on thick carpet and I cant believe this could have killed it and I cant find my manual..... Thanks!

    Would that prevent it from powering up? The power light does not even come on.

Inside the monitor there are two backlight tubes about 8inches long and the thickness of a pencil. A fall could easily have broken the backlights. Probably should take it in for repair.

    Well I really can't answer that because I do not know the extent of the damage. But any fall could have easily disconnected the small wires inside also. There is a very small wire that goes from the power button to the board inside the monitor that starts the whole process. If that wire came loose then yes it would not power up. The inside of monitors carry electricity even when turned off, I would only allow a certified repair shop to look at it. Keep in mind you can get a new 19" refurbished monitor from websites like TigerDirect for a little over $100, so don't spend to much on the repair.

You need to isolate the problem to see if there's a problem with the monitor or with the sound card of the computer.

To isolate this problem, please try the steps below:

1. Make sure that the monitor is properly connected to the computer.
2. Check the volume of the monitor and the volume properties of the computer.
3. Try to connect your monitor into a known working computer.

My ViewSonic va1930wm monitor has black spots.


How long have you owned it? Mine did the same thing. It was a dead spot which got worse. It was just past warranty (of course) but I took it back to Home Depot & they worked with me to get it replaced. Unfortunately, I think this is your only hope. The monitor dept. told me that once they get dead spots there is nothing you can do for them. Wish the news was better.

Two problems vx922 Black screen of Death and vx910 no power


You may want to tey another computer or another cable or update your video card drivers. Otherwise look very closely and see if you are able to see a very faint image of your background picture or icons if you have any.

Really im not kidding it might be a backlight issue.

Dead monitor,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,lcd viewsonic


If the power supply is not wqrking then it is the invertor unit that has dies.
Replace the monitor is the best advice- If it that recent out of warranty may be worth contacting 'viewsonic to see if they will discount you one.

shine a flashlight into the monitor, if you can then see what is usually on your desktop, then your backlight has a problem.
