It was working perfect then in the middle of a game it just failed. No LED lights. No power. We checked the power cables and it works.

Re: Monitor just stopped working

Ok I got the same problem. And this is the way how to examine where the problem is. You have to check that you can see the image on screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons (Power on both cpu and monitor), there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. If you cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.

Display not working, power button LED turns on blue for 1 second and won't turn on again

Have you tried checking with another monitor. Meaning that if the second monitor does not come on then the problem is with your computers mother board. But if the monitor other monitor you check it with comes on then of course it is your monitor.

Monitor wont turn on help

Hello there, first thing you should do is to check the power cable.You can do that by changing it with PC power supply cable .It is the same. If it turns to be OK then disconnect the VGA cable from monitor and then try to power monitor on.There should be an activity on front power LED. If the power LED is not showing any light at all, then do not go further the unit is not working .Else the power led should blink a couple of times then a window pop up scrolling on the lcd saying :" no video signal" so the unit is OK ..Hope this helps. Cheers.

Power on power led blinking


The LED blinking light usually means that the attached PC is not powered on or the VGA connector (end of cable connected from the monitor to the PC) on the monitor, the cable or the VGA port on the PC is faulty.

Try your monitor on another computer. If it works, there is a problem with your PC. If it doesn't work, the VGA connector, the monitor's VGA cable or the monitor itself, is faulty.

Hope this helps.

I have a gateway FDP2275W desktop monitor. the monitor will power up and display the Gateway logo in the middle of the screen, then goes black. The monitor is still getting a signal from the computer as...

This is a common problem with many LCD monitors. The
printed circuit board that provides a stable voltage for the monitor to operate
from starts to fail. The PCB can be replaced, when/if they are available, or repaired
in most cases at a much lower cost. for more information on this email me at

ViewSonc VX924 LCD Monitor

Check the information at Viewsonic's website regarding their warranty:

If you have your proof-of-purchase and it shows the monitor is less than a year old, it would be covered. You would need to follow the procedure on their website to have the unit repaired or replaced, but it would not be your job to try to fix it.

Can't find video signal

If screen says "Signal cable not connected " all the time till power led switches to Amber chances are monitor is ok and problem is with graphic card or cpu.Connect to Known working CPU and confirm that monitor is the problem.
If same problem persists on another working cpu after changing signal cable,the interface board in the monitor could be defective.

PLease rate solution and provide feedback.
