SOURCE: ViewSonic VA912b (Back light with blank dark screen)!

I have the same problem. If the computer goes into power save mode for the monitor the VA912b won't come back on. The LED blinks and it makes a repeating "bloop" noise.

I have no solution other then what was stated. Turn it off for several minutes and turn it back on. Sometimes you have to try this repeatedly before it works. (I have two VA912b monitors that I bought at the same time and both are connected to the same pc - this only happens to one of them)

My bet is that your monitor is on it's way out. If this is true, it will get worse until it gets to a point where it no longer works at all. Connecting the monitor to another computer should confirm my suspicion. The monitor has probably developed a problem with some capacitors inside. The parts are not expensive, but finding a shop to do the work at all may be a challenge. If you're handy with a soldering iron you might want to have a try at it.

SOURCE: Monitor goes black immediately after waking from

Common problem in this model is bad DC filter caps, that will be the first place to look.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

The monitor screen lights up, then goes dark.

I assume that you get the same symptom when you hook this up to another PC. You will need to open it up and check the fuse, solder connections, etc. Please see pictures here for guide:

Try booting the pc in safe mode (press f8 at startup). It may be possible that the pc is trying to send too high a resolution to the monitor...unlikely though. The symptom you describe usually indicates that the power board or the inverter board in the monitor are defective. If it does the same thing in safe mode, you have 2 options.

1. Replace the power board and inverter board (do the inverter board's the cheaper one (10-20 dollars).
2. Send the monitor back to the seller for a refund, or get a new monitor.

Sorry I couldn't give you more positive feedback. Hope this helps.

Viewsonic 21", P817 won't stay on.

Try hooking up a known good working monitor to the computer and see if the monitor turns on and stays on with video.

If it does then you know there is a definite problem with the Sony monitor. Next step would be to open up the monitor and see if you can find any burnt components or any puffy capacitors, instead of a flat top they will have a top that is puffy like its expanded, that means those capacitors are bad. If you run into that, then that means you need to replace those, just make sure you get capacitors with the same UF rating and the voltage can be the same or higher.

You'll need some soldering skills to remove the bad caps and put in the right ones, they can only go in one way cause the dark strip has to match up to the dark strip on the capacitor.

The power button should be on the FRONT BOTTOM RIGHT. and there should be a little led/light next to it. make sure everything is plugged in correctly and press the power button, the led should light up, and then boot your computer.

Let me know --

Monitor flashes on and off!

Sounds like you have a bad connection from your monitor to your computer. First check and make sure the connection between them is tight. Does your computer boot up and run though? If your computer is not booting up the monitor will default back to the flashing green power light

No display

if your monitor is not connected to a pc, then it cannot find a vga signal input and therefore go into power saving mode, which is indicated by the orange light, but as soon as you connect to the pc and power on the light will go green and the monitor will power up.
