Question about Computers & Internet
My viewsonic_rc00161p is no longer working. The monitor does not come one and stays black. The power button/light flashes on and off. I have tried holding down the power button, powering off the monitor, nothing works. What does the flashing light mean and how do I fix it?
First of all try with new monitor leads.
A usual reason why a monitor would do that is because some capacitors have blown.. To fix this you would need some knowledge of soldering etc. Best bet is take it to a repair shop.
If it is quite an old monitor it is probably not worth fixing, so get a new monitor, damn this throwaway society haha.

This is a very common problem. Theres a guy on ebay that will fix it for you for 24 bucks plus 5 bucks shipping. When you open the monitor, on the back panel there are 2 boards. One is a power supply board, the other is the interlogic board. The power supply board is where the problem is. I do not know the exact component that needs replacing as I did not test this yet. I do not have the proper test equipment. For 24 bucks, I'm just gonna let the ebay guy repair it. I will report my results here when I get the board back. I'm also gonna mark the components so I know what they replaced.

Hate to criticize and then not help out. I have this exact same problem with one of my E152 Dell Displays. I have read around and this whole line of displays seemed to have trouble. I found many issues like this and no solutions.
So, I like to tinker and tinker i did. I opened the case, removed the screen and went straight to the power supply board where I found two burned out capacitors.
Value Voltage Diameter Height
1000uF 16v 10mm 16mm
Found a great source for replacement parts and instruction to replace the caps at BadCaps.net
Let you know how it goes.

i believe your monitor signal cable is bad or twisted.try straightening the data cable that connects to your cpu, if it doesn't work, replace the signal cable.
