Actually, the ultra high voltage 'charger' for the florecence (a.k.a. your back light)has gone Kaput...
If your lucky, someone will have a monitor like yours that has the back light come on, but no picture (should get a similar blinking light situation, but a different code. Like... blink, hold, blink blink, hold, blink). In this situation (if your comfortable doing it) you can swipe the exciter from that monitor and put it in your monitor. Obviously this is a more economical way of repairing the monitor.
Just to be on the safe side (as the repair is blindingly easy. 6 screws, pop out, pop back in) DON'T touch any of the back side components. You WILL shock the supreme **** out of yourself. Between the heavy duty capacitors and the ultra high gain transformers on those things you could jump start a bus. So don't be fooled... those little transformers pack a mean sting.
My VX924 did the same thing but now displays nothing and power switch light just blinks. According to an answer listed on previous page, it may have bad capacitors. I may have to take a look at them. Viewsonic repair facility examination of this monitor runs $70.
I don't know what might have happened, but a number of years ago I had an apple monitor and the power light on it started blinking, so I got in touch with apple and they told me that it's flashing an error code, so they told me what the blinking indicated and fixed it.
So I think the blinking of the power light on your monitor could be indicating an error code so I suggest you call apple and they will identify what the error is indicating.
Hummm. Try to unplug everything, reconnect, than restart. If not working, try to plug your monitor on a different computer to diagnose what is wrong, the computer or monitor. It could also be your graphic adapter, verify that it is firmly attached to the motherboard.
Lastly, replace the defective part.
Normally, blinking indicator lights and no display on the monitor indicating a wrong resolution or refresh rate frequency, that the monitor can not display it.
To fix, enter safe mode, and configure the display to the lowest resolution. After restart, you should be able to have the display.
This could indicate a problem with the graphics card. Take the card out and clean it, then clean the slot that it fits into. (I normally use a small dry paintbrush).
Replace the card, making sure that you push it down gently but firmly and ensure that the plastic clip has gone back correctly that hold the card in place. Rescrew the card back to the casing correctly and reboot.
Hopefully this will resolve your problem. If it does not, to determine whether or not your graphics card is faulty. Change the monitor lead over to the onboard graphics port instead of the agp/pci port and reboot. If the monitor works properly with no problems, then you have a bad graphics card.
