Question about ViewSonic VP230mb 23.1" LCD Monitor With Speakers, Black
SOURCE: Monitor Blinking
This is a Common problem MOST if NOT ALL, problems like this with this type of fault it is invairably a problem with the Power Supply, in the PSU Electrolytic capacitors dry out and often cause this type of exact problem... It is a relitively simple fix, by replacing the caps with new ones... Any good shop should be able to fix for a modest fee.. OR if ya know anyone handy with a soldering iron maybe they could do it for you there are generally about 4 - 6 to replace... in the PS section, just do them all to be safe

Sounds your monitor has either blown a backlight or the inverter board is bad. Either way they can both be replaced, but tracking down the parts will be a bit difficult. But your LCD Monitor is in trouble! Sorry!

Blinking on and off is not always a capacitor issue, it is usually caused by faulty transistors at the high output transformers that light the backlights. Crappy board design ! But fixable in most cases.

I RMA'd this probablem as well. They asked the usual questions -- try it alone, check the connections, are you using VGA or DVI... blah blah. Eventually they could give me an RMA.
They have customer support via phone on Sundays in the US, which is nice. Total time from calling to RMA was about 20 minutes.

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.)

One of 2 possibilities come to mind.
1, The vga chord is loose on the back of the monitor.
2, Your resolution is set too high or low to be displayed.
The blinking light means that the monitor is either not getting or understanding a signal.
Hope this helps.
