Question about ViewSonic VX924 19" LCD Monitor

Monitor flashes image for split second then goes blank but green LED flashes as well

I have had the ViewSonic VX924 for about 1.5 years. Just this morning when I moved the mouse to wake up the monitor, the screen flashed an image for a split second and then went blank. However, I noticed that the green LED flashes as well. I have plugged in other computers to the monitor and all display the same result. They work fine on a different monitor. I have read in the manual a working that too high a resolution and refresh rate can "permanently damage" the monitor. Any help appreciated.

    Same Problem. I have a dual monitor setup (one 922 the other a 924). The 922 works fine with either cable through either display card port.
    If I press the number 2 button on the monitor the display shows the expected screen for about 1 sec then goes black again.

While the monitor is still powered on, but with the LED flashing, unplug the monitor from the PC. press the power button, and the monitor should go off, now plug the pc back into the monitor. Turn the monitor back on and it should work.

Occasionally this will not work for me, but if I repeat it it normally works

Hope this helps - my problem is intermitant so it may be different to what u guys have

After the monitor has been turned off, along with my PC, if I turn on the monitor at the same time that I turn on the PC it will go black, with a slight flickering, and the power button flashes on and off. I can't even turn off the monitor when it's started to do that. I power off the PC to get the power light back on on the monitor and can then power it off.
However, if I don't turn on the monitor until XP has had time to get to the full resolution login screen, which I can tell by the hard disk activity light on the PC, then when I turn on the mon it works fine. And doesn't flicker. This means I can't get to see the pre-boot screens and it's most annoying.

Viewsonic VG2021m Image Vanishes on Start Up


It is the picture picture board on your monitor that is malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on, but the display screen goes blank after a few seconds, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Lg flatron blank screen

t certainly seems like the monitor is not getting a signal. Did this happen after you changed something, or just on normal boot up?
It could be the video card that has failed.
Also, check the pins on the connector; sometimes they can get pushed in.
If you can, try swapping out the video card or use the monitor on another computer.
Good luck,

Unplug the cable from your PC, if the monitor shows a test image, the monitor is fine and the problem is with your graphic card. If you dont see nothing on-screen after unpluging the cable from the PC, then the monitor in damaged. Send it to repair.
