Question about ViewSonic VA721 17" LCD Monitor

3 Answers

My monitor seem's to be fine but i am having eye problem's.

I had catarac surgery on my right eye back on 06/23/08 and it turned out just fine. I had the same surgery on my left eye on07/14/08. I have had problem's with tearing in that eye ever since. The eye Dr. is still treating me and has used every kind of drop's you can imagine. My eye seem's to be okay untill i have been on the computer for about 15 minutes. I thought that if i could turn down the brightness it might help. The only other course is go on check my email's and get off. You see what is happening is the Dr. is trying to get a true reading for my glasses but twice i have had to take them back because they were to strong. Maby if i could dim the screen a little my eye would stop tearing. That's my story and i'm sticking to it. Hope you can help. Thank's

Its better if you could take some weeks off from your monitor . Consult with an eye surgery specialist. He will give you advice on how vulnerable your eye is.

You should take a few months off from your computer between those doctors visits...You see the small print on your monitor makes you the bloodvessels in your eye to work harder. You dont know's automatic. Another option is to make the print on ur monitor much bigger.

i will state the obvious first...u have subbed out the power and vga cables make sure that is not the issue? Then of course the power plug internally - those contacts can go if you have been plugging unplugging lots... If apart, you will need to check continuity with a multimeter against the plug holes to the board. Likely requires a spot solder - 400deg silver solder. Also make sure it is not your PC or video card that is loose. Good luck!

Hey there! Sorry about that.
Seems you've got a problem that you can't fix yourself, and I could help however, I need to self diagnose the monitor. But since I'm not there in person, you'll have to contact the service centre and have them fix it up.
Monitors can damage your eyes if its not in the right version of hertz. Please try fixing it ASAP

Monitor comes on for a second then goes off. Power light stays on

You say you can still see the screen if you look close enough. The only thing that gives it more light is the backlight. It is either shorting itself out right after it comes on or the device that powers it (usually the inverter) is the culprit.

Benq screen resolution auto adjust seems to auto adjust wrongly

I would recommend you to bring it back and get a new one, if its till under warranty. You cannot fix the problem on the panel buttons it looks something to do with the components in the circuit bord.
