Question about ViewSonic VA520 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
When I connect the VA520 to a Panasonic DVD recorder via the Panasonic RGB component video out, the monitor at first reads "no signal" until a DVD is loaded, then "out of range" for a few seconds before going blank. Any suggestions about whether this is possible and/or how to do it?

Sorry about your problems with the View Sonic 19” Monitor.
1st. thing you have to decide is weather the unit is worth repair and if you have the technical background to complete the repair.!!
If the power Led stay’s on and the video blanks out, it is most likely the backlight tube.
2nd. You can tell for sure, if you use a strong flashlight and see data on the screen.
If you can see data or images, it is the backlight. If the inverter board was bad, it would shut the power circuit down and you would not have continues power from the supply.
3rd. The backlight is not an easy job to undertake. Again, if you have little or NO technical background, you may want to pass on this project.
4th. If you decide to take on this project, you will need to order the backlight and if you are replacing that, you might as well check the Caps. And other components in the power supply and inverter board.
5ft. The backlight tube is cheep and can be purchased locally for under $10.00 USD
I needed to order a 15.1/4” tube for a laptop and decided saving 2 or 3 bucks was worth the investment. However, I ordered from China and had my tubes held up for over 5 working days and could have walked to the manf. And back by the time I had recvd. them.
Decide weather you want to repair it yourself, or have it serviced. A 19” View Sonic can be purchased for under $100.00 New with High Def.
The in shop repair with have to be more than the unit is worth.
Hope this information has been of some help.
If you decide to take on the job, drop me an email and I will go into better detail on what and how to do.

yes your back lights are going out. but because they work for a while the backlights are probably good and you need to have the invertor looked ar.

The problem is not at your monitor, it's on the VGA card; there are no drivers installed. Clarify me the brand / model of your VGA (or in case of embeded at the motherboard post the motherboard's brand / model) in order to try to locate and post you back the drivers for Windows 7.
Waiting clarification, don't hesitate to post.
Thanks and regards
