I've been having the same problems with my Viewsonic.I plug it in and the blue light blinks but there's no picture it's just a black screen.I do know if Viewsonic doesn't repair my monitor I'll never buy anything from them again.I have the LCD Viewsonic 22' Vx2235wm monitor.
Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong with mine?I've bought a new video cable & video card but the monitor still does the same thing?Thanks
In order to isolate whether its the monitor or the compurter tower you can do a self test to check if the monitor is fine .Turn the computer off and then disconnect the cable for the monitor from the back panel of the computer tower.It will be a blue connector with screws on it .Undo the screws and then disconnect it then turn the computer on ,if the monitor is fine you should get a message that would say check input signal or you will have some kind of message on the screen that tells you that the data cable to the monitor is not connected.If u dont get any message that simply means that the monitor has gone bad and needs to be replaced...
Disconnect the display from the Computer and remove its power plug. While the display is turned off, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. After two minutes connect the power cord and the display cord to the Computer and the power source and turn it ON.
If the power indicator on the display keeps blinking, then it's required to open it up to repair it.
I just had the same problem as well - mine happened during a windows update, related? Also, for me the monitor doesn't come one even after disconnecting from computer, nothing, just blinking green light.
The part where you see some color bars and blinking green led is what we call MONITOR SELF TEST. A diagnostic pattern consisting of four colors (red, green, blue and white) appears, and the LED flashes slowly. this happens when signal cable from the monitor is disconnected from the tower and leaving the power chord for the monitor plugged in. If the monitor works properly on a different computer. then its a problem with the computer's video card sending out signal. im 85% sure that its a problem with your video card.
