OSD Lock Settings
You have the option of using the OSD Lock feature to prevent current image
adjustments from being changed.
• OSD Lock: Press and hold  and [J]
for 10 seconds. If any buttons are
pressed the message OSD Locked will display for 5 seconds.
• OSD Unlock: Press and hold  and [J]
again for 10 seconds.

If all the buttons on the front don't work I would beleive it was a cable that is not connected correctly. I've seen things like this happen on otherwise perfectly good equipment. It's probably an easy fix however, monitors have enough power to KILL YOU (dead not a little bit very dead) if your not sure what your doing find someone who is most things I encourage you to open up and play with but not monitors. (did I mention you could die)

If there is a flashing led on front of the monitor, that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.
1 The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours, sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faults that can occurr suddenly are a blown capacitor on power board, the inverter board powering up backlight lamp has blown, or a fault on main lcd controller board.
check also the video cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.
Check connectors, try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.
If under warranty contact Viewsonic to find out a Viewsonic service point.

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Go into the NVidia control panel, create a custom resolution (for the ViewSonic VG2021m, you want 1400x1050, 60Hz), and test it. When the test asks you if it looks ok and you click "yes", it *still* is not activated-- it is simply added as one of the resolutions available for the monitor, and goes back to the same setting you had before... so it looks like it didn't work. But then, if you go under "Change resolution", you'll see your new setting is available there. Choose it, and you are good.
It's working for me, on my T61.

there are possible reasons why your monitor shows nothing on your screen...
First, you need to check if the power cable of your monitor is well connected to a wall socket or AVR (and that you are sure there is supply output current on the AVR or in the wall outlet)
IF found that power cable is fix and secure... my suggestion is you bring the monitor to a credible technician...Because the possible reason why only black is seen on your screen, is because the backlight inverter could be busted already.. the backlight inverter which is located on the upper and lower back edge of the monitor is the light source responsible for giving image display of your lcd monitor.. Another reason could be is a deffective high voltage ballast transformer which is responsible for generating high votlage supply for the backlight....
It is too risky for you to do the repair by yourself without proper knowledge and right tools to do this.. So don't waste time consult a technician and or possible avail of the warranty if there is any...
Hope it is clear now to you..
Much appreciated if you rate this help.. thanks..
