Question about ViewSonic VE710b 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Blinks On and Off

The problem with the monitor only seems to have occured in the past 3 days. It blinks on and off every second. I've checked the wiring - from monitor to computer/mains - and there appears to be no problems there. I try using the monitor on another computer and it does the same thing. Using another monitor on my computer works fine. I've tried changing the refresh rate to 100 hertz and lower. Still no change. Thanks if you can get it working again!

Re: Blinks On and Off

Hi Wickdamam, It sounds like the viewsonic power supply inside your monitor is Clamping due to a heavy load or a short circuit. The best method for getting your monitor back to normal, is to carefully disassemble the unit and clean the dust and lint from everything inside. I use a paint brush to sweep the circuit boards off. Evidently you have something shorting out inside. You will want to look for anything that does not belong inside like jelly or anything crazy like that. If you have further problems contact me at

Hp w2408h monitor flashing red green black blue white

These blinks (flashes) are fault indication. By the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Count the blinks occur at one time switch ON, carefully. Do it once again, and make sure about the number of blinks. If the flashes are continious, non-stop, the main system control IC should be suspected. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has blinking codes detail to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy.

SyncMaster 932B blinks, then screen goes black

Check all the connections and if they are all right and tight then the monitor is probably shot. The good news is that it can be repaired. It's usually around $50.00 to $80.00 to fix. Good luck!

Monitor blinks out for 2 seconds

What do you do to make it come back on? Sounds like it might be getting too hot and/or going bad. Try it on another machine and see what it does. Also try another video card because the video card could be going bad.
