The power light turning orange means the monitor isn't getting a signal from the computer. Or the monitor has a problem. If the screen shows light in the corners, the inverter is working. (If the inverter stops there is no light at all.)

The first thing to try is connecting another monitor to make sure your computer is actually starting up. If that monitor also shows nothing, you have a computer issue to take care of. Otherwise the monitor needs service.

Change brightness


The second button from the left on the bottom corner by the power button is the brightness button. If you press it the brightness menu is pop up on the screen. With the menu up you just use the three buttons on the left to select the function and the increase or decrease the brightness and contrast on the monitor.

My viewsonic va702b will flicker on for less then a second then goes off. The green light stays on but has a black screan. Whats goin on.


This is a common problem with this model. The capacitors in the power supply board have failed and are preventing the unit from powering up. Here is a link to a repair kit with the correct capacitors and a pictures showing where the one are located that need to be replaced. Very easy repair.

There are two possibilities, one is bad caps in the power supply, number two is shorted out transistors (P/N c5706/5707) in the inverter circuits. Please open it up and report back what you see so we can guide you further, see example fo failed monitors due to bad caps, lamps, etc: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Monitor comes on, I can see everything perfect then goes black


"Most" newer monitors will let you know if the are no longer receiving a signal. Sounds like the backlight is burnt out. Try getting a bright (LED works best) flashlight and shining it at the screen at all angles to see if you can see any of what you were doing. If the backlight is on the fritz, either return it on warranty or buy a new one.

Monitor going black after a few seconds can be caused by a faulty power supply or inverter. Some monitors have both as one unit.
Sometimes it is basic failed capacitors, After that then I would look at transistors.
The average monitor from 17 to 20 and sometimes the 22s have usually 4 bulbs in them. One bad bulb will also cause the inverter to not fire up.
Bad bulbs usually show pinkish tint, or flickering or are dark at center top or bottom of the display.

The inverter is the most common item to fail on a LCd monitor. Capacitors usally fail the most. Are the tops of any of them popped up. If you had any shorted transistors the fuse would probably be blown. Usally labeled F1. I would replace all the capacitors first and go from there. Capacitors are cheap.

Monitor Black, Green Power Light Flashes Monitor is 4 yrs. old


Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
