Very typical of View Sonic. Sounds like a back backlight or inverter. I would go to www.viewsonic.com 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.
THIS IS FOR XP SP2 IF YOU ARE USING VISTA, you may have to modify some of this.
First, ensure that RDP (remote desktop protocol) is enabled on your PC AND ALLOWED in your firewall program (probably the quickest way to check if it is a firewall issue is to temp turn off your firewall and try to connect to your pc with the airpanel)
Also, your user name on the PC you are trying to reach has to have a password for RDP (and thus the Airpanel) to work. if you do not have to type in a password to log in to your user, change that under control panel>users
if this doesnot work, try checking the ip address of the PC you want to connect to (run>cmd ipconfig /all ) and manually set up the ip and login info on the airpanel. If you had it working before and it doen not work now (or at any point in the future after getting the settings right) un plug it from the wall and pull the battery for a min or so then phug it back in and turn it on. resets most connection issues I've had (when I know the settings are right) also google 'rdp hack' to make it more useful
Either way, looks like a power supply problem to me, some Viewsonic screens are known to have a problem with their inner power supply card, If your screen is still under warranty I suggest you don't lose time analysing the problem and just make them come and fix/replace it
this problem have 2 posiibilities
1)solder lose on the vedio socket and around horizental circuit
2) the line
and mostly in viewsonic and compaq its the line wich you need to replace it if you can find it in the market
Per the first hit on Google for 'viewsonic fades white', http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html;jsessionid=A68BB7FE4AF6EC93EB730E8588C865A2?topicId=4064461903&sid=1 (which you should go on and read in another tab,) you need to contact Viewsonic about an inverter board (for the CCFL backlight) or switching your backlight to LED while spoofing the INVERTER_OK signal to keep the display from giving up as it does.
So...this should be a hint that you should respect others' time (or be moved to increase usability) better by searching for cures in similar Viewsonic monitors, and of course checking the obvious search terms. Viewsonic evidently has a nifty knowledge base available for all on the web, so that one would be a nifty surprise.
This is a common problem with LCD monitors after a few years of use. The capacitors in the power supply board start to fail and this prevents the monitor from starting up correctly. Sometimes you get a picture and then it goes black. On some units you can keep pressing the power button and after several power up cycles the monitor will work until you turn if off. These symptoms are all common with capacitor failure. The monitors are well out of warranty now so Viewsonic will not cover the repair cost. But the repair is very easy to do yourself. You just have to replace the 6 power filter capacitors on the power supply board. Here is a link to additional information on this repair.
