It's an issue with the power supply, most likely the Capacitors (one or more) may be shot. Open it up if it is out of warrenty, look at the capacitors (they look like cans), if they are bulging at the top or even sides they are bad. This is a common problem with this monitor. Crappy Caps used in manufacturing. Replace all the caps with same rated caps and you should be good. Do your research on how to desolder the old ones off and proper installation of the new ones.
Per the first hit on Google for 'viewsonic fades white', http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html;jsessionid=A68BB7FE4AF6EC93EB730E8588C865A2?topicId=4064461903&sid=1 (which you should go on and read in another tab,) you need to contact Viewsonic about an inverter board (for the CCFL backlight) or switching your backlight to LED while spoofing the INVERTER_OK signal to keep the display from giving up as it does.
So...this should be a hint that you should respect others' time (or be moved to increase usability) better by searching for cures in similar Viewsonic monitors, and of course checking the obvious search terms. Viewsonic evidently has a nifty knowledge base available for all on the web, so that one would be a nifty surprise.
I had a Gateway 19" TFT that did the same thing.
Does the power light stay on? If so, you more than likely have "dry" solder joints at the inverters. Take it apart & shoot a little solder on the inverter solder joints. Good as new now. The solder joints dry out because of the high heat generated. This is a very common problem.
Hi check the sound cable hasn't fallen out or come loose from the back of the monitor. After this reinstall the drivers for the monitor you will be able to download them from viewsonic if still not working then the speaker jack or speakers are faulty.
