Mrtyler7, With monitor connected to a KNOWN GOOD pc that is displaying the WIN-desktop, then and only then turn-on the Viewsonic VX900. Note what happens. After LCD screen BLACKS out tell me if the desktop can still be seen if you point a bright flashlight 1 inch form screen??? You may or may not see the desktop depending on how far the "switch-mode-power-supply" has gone into SHUTDOWN mode to try and save it's self from a catastrophic faliure. Get back to me with result of test on fixya or by email. Also check out YOUTUBE for short video clips on "lcd monitor disassembly" or "lcd repair" or search web for stuff like "swollen caps" or "badcaps.net" or "bad electrolytic capacitors" !!! You may fall into this type of failure catagory. Let me know what plan of action you will be interested in. I will also let you know what other options you have. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@aol.com

It's getting power, it's just not getting signal from the data cable. The cord that connects to the monitor, (not the power) is typically the reason it is going into standby mode. This can also happen if your graphics card driver is missing on your operating system, but you said you tried the monitor on another machine, so I narrowing it down to most likely be the data cable. Try another cable.

The monitor does not power up. no power light comes on, there is nothing that shows up on the screen. All cables are well connected and yes the power switch is on.


check by changing the power cord if this does not solve the problem the fault is in the power of the monitor better call technician or take it to the service centre

It won't turn on -


hi there, it sounds like your monitor isn't receiving power, check the power cable in your monitor is connected and not partially unplugged. Second, if that doesn't work, try looking at your plug and make sure that is plugged in. If that doesn't work, you may have to buy a new monitor or give it to a friend that can repair it.

Monitor Display Problem.


The first Polyview has a power supply problem (a short) and locks out the power until it is unplugged. You need to check the voltages inside the Monitor to determine which component/s are faulty. I hope you know electronics if not leave it to the repair shop because you have neither the skills or equipment to repair it. By the way I am not a monitor repair man but I do have 30 plus years in the electronics field.
The second monitor may have a broken wire in the cord that goes to your computer. Other internal components can cause the same simptoms your seeing. Good luck!

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Sounds like either there is a bad connection from the computer to the monitor, or the monitor has a faulty power regulator, causing the monitor to overheat prematurely, and shut off.
