Question about ViewSonic VX1935wm LCD Monitor
My ViewSonic Monitor (VX1935wmM-3) was shut off for roughly 2 years, I tried turning it on yesterday and I plugged 2 out of the possible 4 things in(Vga cable and Power cable) and then the power button started to flash blue but the screen wouldn't turn on, it stayed back. My laptop (Toshiba running windows 7) registered it and acted like it was perfectly fine and there was no problem with it
The absolute worst thing you can do with a piece of electronic equipment is to let it set. If as you stated the laptop registered it OK then it could be that it has lost it's memory and needs the drivers updated. The laptop will only tell you that it is connected it does not run a diagnosis on it. If you have the disc for the drivers try running it while hooked to the monitor. Other than that you may have internal problems with the monitor. It could be the inverters. logic controls and numerous other things that just seem to die of neglect I guess you could say. I have found about every kind of problem with TV's and Computers that have been mothballed for a length of time. I would think it is the drivers though. If you do not have the disc go on line to the Mfg. of the monitor and enter the model # etc. and try to find a download for the drivers. Most Mfg. have free downloads of the drivers for their equipment. Hope this gets it going and if I can be of any other assistance please feel free to contact me.

I had to replace a fuse(F1) on the inverterboard of my VX900 to get it back to life as fuzzytek sugested.
It was replaced by a normal "flat" fuse (for cars). Had no clue about the value, so I tried with 0,5A first. It blew right away. Next value I had was 2A, and it worked! (It might be too small, and it might be too big, but I think it is better to usa a "large" fuse rather than no fuse at all. :)

PLEASE read Carefully so here is a fix for the green blinking light ...the monitor is going into shutdown....protect mode......THIS is ...Only for the seasoned electronic service tech ......YOU NEED TO BE into Electronics ..or have electronic background and know how to solder to do this........I been doing repairs for 30 years now ..............After extencive troubleshooting and replaceing a lot of electrolitic caps on the inverter board and spending about 10 hours doing so ....i decided to eather go for broke and blow this up more or trash the unit......................Well my blinking light deal went away...my monitor you could see it trying to start and just shut down............first of all make sure you have no broken solder work on the inverter board or swelled up caps ...Thay use lead free solder so the solder work sucks also...........I did pull the main buss line from the inverter pc board that runs the transformers to test to see where the trouble is.....found its at the high voltage end of the inverter board and The viewsonic 922 uses a protection ic on the inverter board and it tells the controll ic whats the High voltage status of the inverters.....I soldered a 47uf @ 25 volt cap on pins 7&8 of ic-u2 [ bi3101a ] Pin 7 is posivtive pin 8 negative of the cap.... and then soldered pins 10 and 11 togeather on the other side of the ic.......ITs fooling that ic telling the main controll / protect line thats all is well........I would guess the whole deal is LOW inverter voltage or maybe a surface mount device thats going to go........could be low resistor tolerence also............The monitor been working for a week now.........Always on.....anyways........YOUR problem may just be bad solder or bad caps...........if you Have a electronic background or have a friend that works on electronics have him look at the caps.see if any or swelled or rounded on the top of the caps..Also chect the main plug that goes to the LCD backplane to make sure its in correctley................if all that checks then the problem is ON THE INVERTER BOARD ONLY ......befor doing what i have done......I also have a Viewsonic VA-800 that had some of the same problems also ,but it had a lot of lines on the video.......I replaced the,,,,, 2.2 mic @ 50 volt cap in the middle of the main board on it and its still running.....but has about 3/8 of white traces following all the words on the desktop...[[[ anyone that knows this fix i would like to hear from ]]] ..........NOTE if you dont know about electronics...dont attemp any of this......their is a lot of voltage on the inverter board........my answer is that these monitors are JUNK...poorley built units.....

I understand the vg2021m has a 3 year warranty. Phone number for Product Support is (800) 688-6688. Give 'em a call and see if they won't fix it for free or some nominal charge. (OK! So this is the cowards way out.)

The monitor should come when the power button is pressed once - period. If not, and it continues to happen when connected to another PC, then the hardware is having trouble powering up the panel / ccds and it should be replaced/serviced according to the terms of the warranty. I suggest to bring it to an authorized service center for proper diagnosis & fix the problem. regards

There could be a problem with your display card settings or the display card itself. If you are using Windows operating system, make sure that you have the monitor driver installed for that specific monitor. This is to ensure that Windows only allows settings for which your particular monitor was designed.
Let me know if I can assist you any further regarding this.
