Monitor Cuts Off After 5 seconds

I have a View sonic monitor that starts up OK then it says it will shut off in 5 seconds. I can't get it to stay on long enough to change anything.. perhaps its in a "sleep" mode or E'energy saver" mode of some sort. How do I remedy this?

My monitor(view sonic e70fb ) is osd lock, n how how can get unlock

Hi Mandalavijay,

To unlock your monitor you need to hold two keys simultaneously for about 5 seconds.

In this case for your model you need to press the 1 key and the down arrow key and a message will appear which reads ' OSD Unlock'

Hope this helps...:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

ViewSonic VA1930wm Screen stays on for about 2 seconds, and then goes off. 1) If no computer is connected you get a "no signal" message which stays for about 1 seconds and then goes off; blue...

Very typical of View Sonic. Sounds like a back backlight or inverter. I would go to and open up a RMA. Most view sonic screens have a 3 year warranty. They will repair at no cost ..(if it is within that period) There is a date code on the back of the screen that will help you validate the above information.

E machine monitor turns itself off and on

The same thing happened to me today. I was just sitting in my room then i hear a click and the cpu is on it stays on for a while then cuts off. It then cuts on and off with few seconds in between. It then stays in that way cutting and off for about a minite or two and then cuts off completely. A few minutes later it starts again. Also in the time it its off it will not turn on by pressing the power button. Sometimes it completly boots up by itself and then shuts itself down. If I shut it down manually while its on it'll turn itself on immeditaly after. What's going on! Will the warranty cover it? Do I need a new computer?

Wanting to find out if my monitor is going out, or if theres

From what you are describing this is not a monitor issue. If the monitor were dying you'd see faults in the images, dead pixels, or random poweroffs. Loading windows slowly has nothing to do with your monitor. It is likely that you have picked up some sort of virus, spyware or malware that is slowing your system down. Have you installed any toolbars in your web browser lately? Those are notorious for ruining PC performance.

Possible Solution: Your Computer may have not configured the Monitor properly, to check, go to Start menu and Right click My Computer and select Manage then when Computer Manager is open go to Device Manager and find your Monitor and check if that device is working properly (right click on Monitor and go to Properties).

Viewsonic VE175b Monitor Powers Up Doesn't Display Windows OS

Hi; I had the same problem. I know that sometimes devices require you to perform some type of '10-30 second' "hold" of one or some of its buttons in order to 'reset' the device, so to speak. So, having said that, try this:

1) Turn your monitor off (no green light) but leave it plugged in.
2) Leave it off for about 10 seconds.
3) Hold the [2] button on your monitor (the one to the immediate LEFT of your monitor's POWER button).
4) While holding the [2] button, now press and HOLD your POWER button.
5) Wait for your image to appear and STAY onscreen for about 5 seconds, then release both buttons.
6) Your monitor should retain its onscreen image.

Hope this helps! Good Day to all!
