Flashing blue and black on the screen

Hi there , if you can activate menu on screen , then try to change the video input source to something like VGA , and be sure that You've connected some video source with VGA cable prior to this. Sometime when there is no input signal (especially digital like HDMI) it flashes like that. Hope this helps .Cheers.

Screen is blak, has power

That either means it is not getting the signal from the PC or there is a problem in the monitor. You should try this monitor on another PC first, also check or try another VGA cable. Just need to narrow down the problem to either PC or the Monitor.

My ADC monitor will not come on but the power light flashes yellow. Does this mean my monitor is shot? Is there a way to check it? The power adapter is still putting out 12 V. Thanks, Bob

Flashing yellow light usually means it is not getting the video signal from the PC, try it on other PC first to narrow it down the problem, bad VGA cable can also be the cause, last will be problem in the monitor itself which you will need to open up to inspect the inside. Post back what you find so we can helpou more. More likely to be bad backlights inverter board.

1905FP Monitor Powers up, briefly shows logo, blacks out.

Look inside for bad caps with bulgng tops, worst case will be shorted out transistors in the backlight inverter circuits or bad lamps. Check to see if you do have he 12vdc for the inveter circuits. See example of failed monitors with bad caps here:

When I switch my 22'' lcd monitor on it displays a message '' disconnected '', I have just bought it secondhand.

The message "disconnected" shows that the LCD not receiving signals from the input source.
Verify that the source is working properly.
If you are using this LCD as a PC monitor, connect it to the PC's VGA out via a VGA cable. Make sure that your PC's display output is working (are you able to use another monitor?).
Also try using another VGA cable to check if your old one is faulty.
After making appropriate connections, turn your LCD off and then back on after 10 seconds.
If your problem is still unsolved, it may be a sign of a faulty component inside the LCD but the chances are rare.

My on and off light is just flashing with the screan black

On most LCD monitors the power indicator will flash on and off slowly when there is no video source present and the power is on.
Usually this can be corrected by enabling the video source in the display properties menu of the PC.
If that is not the problem the 2nd most likely cause would be a faulty VGA cable (try a different one)
And the 3rd possibility could be the monitor video input board has failed and that usually means it's totaled considering how inexpensive the monitors are to replace these days.

I hope this helps you.

DVI input on monitor not working

Contacted viewsonic about this issue- they suggested- have both dvi and vga hooked up to same machine. start with poweroff on both. power on monitor, then power on computer. when you see display coming from the vga, power off pc, then disconnect vga cable, turn off power to monitor, disconnect power cord from monitor for 5 + seconds, reconnect power cord, power on monitor, then power on pc.
If this doesn't work to get the dvi working, (as happened to us) we returned our monitor for a replacement, since it was still under warranty.

Power light flashes with no display

That usually means that the connection between the PC and the monitor has been interupted- check that the cable (probably has blue ends) between the two is firmly connected, and power it back up. If that doesn't work, you have one of three problems; a broken VGA cable, a broken monitor, or a broken video card. Finding out which- you'll actually need someone tech-savvy there to help you figure that out. Try plugging the monitor into a different computer. If that fails, use a different VGA cable (cables are pretty cheap at, and if that fails, it's your video card.
