VX2255 Microphone I have just bought this screen and the inbuilt camera works but the microphone does not work. Is it a driver fault, just simply broken or I haven't done the right thing yet. How would I know

What I thought was a microphone problem turned out to be a design turd and a cable issue.
One would think that the USB connection doubles as webcam and microphone input, and the line in connection is for the speakers -- amplified or otherwise. The brainiacs at Viewsonic have designed a "line in" jack which acts as BOTH the input for the audio signal as well as feeding the microphone signal out. So you need the special cable that came with the monitor. The black jack goes into the "line in" socket behind the monitor, and the lime green one on the other end into the PC side speaker jack, and the pink one into the PC side mic-in jack.
I looked in my grab-bag of wires and things and fortunately was able to find the weird cable despite the fact I purchased the monitor more than a year ago. I never tried to use the webcam/mic feature until now.
Fortunately the tech I talked to was smart enough to realize that I was the one who should be laughing (mad) at them and not the other way around.

Solution #2 posted on Dec 15, 2009 fixed the problem. THANK YOU kbfixer !! I had to open a few moving boxes and found the cable in the original package, unopened. The other problem was getting the webcam on the monitor to pick up sound. I had to set the mic configuration WHILE running the movie application on the webcam. Otherwise, it kept resetting the mic level. Also set the DC noice cancelation on which made for a much better sound.

My monitor shows nothing but a white screen

This is typically a sign of a video card that is not working right. The other possibility with ViewSonic is that the monitor went bad. MNy best advice is find someone with a known working computer and hook the monitor up and see if it works or not. That way, you can determine if it is the monitor or the computer. Also, the VX2255 may be under warranty. A visit to will help you determine if they can repair/replace (if your test finds the screen to be bad.) Be sure to un plug the monitor from the wall; wait a moment, and plug back in to determine if a power blip may have caused an issue too.

Best of luck.

People are unable to hear me on Skype. The built webcam on monitor is working properly, but the mic is not.

You monitor with built-in web camera may only process the video signal through the USB only, not audio from the microphone, look for analog microphone output jack to hook it up to your PC microphone input.

Turning on Microphone of Viewsonic VX2255 LCD Display

The microphone setup should be with the communication software that you will be using such as SKYPE or OoVoo set up panel. It will not be at the monitor. I use OOVOO because I can do video call with six people at once.

In monitor camera doesn't work

Same problem here. This has nothing to do with USB able. Ofcourse I put that in the monitor!
We need a driver. It is not on the CD, there is only the LCD driver. Not the webcam driver. It is supposed to come with Windows.
