Petervzt, Gee wiz, I wonder how long they think these monitors will last?? Till 2019 I guess!!! Pete, if you don't have any expertise using a soldering pencil/iron , DVM, DMM, LCR meter and /or 30mhz oscilloscope then you will not be able to even attempt to repair this unit. The most likely failure will be in the "switch-mode-power-supply" and/or "inverter-supply" circuit. Check with Viewsonic for information on doing a SWAPOUT For cash+your old unit. you get a refurbished model with new CCFT's inverter board/SMPS. But that's only if they have a swapout prog. If you snoop around on fixya you should be able to find a place to get it fixed for less than a C note. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel

Takes awhile for the monitor to turn on

This is common with this model. The switch mode power supply is not starting up when it is switched on. This supply creates 12VDC to operate the monitor. It could be the IC, a resistor or a capacitor in the start up circuit.

I am getting a blue halo around text and objects on screen, wheb text is at the bottom the blue halo is curved over the original text.

A common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Or - your TV may have a convergence problem....

Monitor (viewsonic VP191b)is completely Dead. Is there a fuse?

There may be one, but it wont look like a normal fuse. It could be a surface mount type or one that looks like a resistor.

If I had your monitor on my bench, I would first replace all of the electrolytic caps on the circuit boards. These are typical fail points.

ViewSonic VP171b resolution problem

If you went from a standard screen to a wide-screen, you have to upgrade the video card.
Also, try going into the menu option on screen and have it automatically detect settings.
First thing you should do is update your drivers.
Should have said that first.

Seeing the word "analog" on your screen means the monitor has recognized video input on the vga "analog" input connection.
Most computers output "analog" vga (15 pin) which must be converted to digital for a flat panel monitor to display the image.
Many LCDs now have both analog and digital inputs.

Screen flickers

The problem is that it is on the verge of going out my mother had a monitor go out and it did the same thing. Also if you have any high frequeny things around your monitor thatr also migh be the thing. Try a magnet or demagnitze the screen if you have one on it.
