Question about ViewSonic VX715 17" LCD Monitor

Viewsonic vx715 monitor - last button to the right has stuck/won't bring monitor on

The last button to the right on the bottom panel - that allows you to turn the monitor off or on when not using it - stuck, for lack of a better word when it was "off." I can press it/fool with it and the image comes on a few seconds so I know it is there, but can't make it do more than that. My perception is something happened to that switch that allows you to go back and forth - can I fix this?

See image for few seconds? Check capacitors on board and check for "dry/cold" solder joints. If u can see image if only for 2 secs then it is not your backlights.

I used to repair LCD monitor from Dell. It works for me. You might be using these following steps to examine what is the problem of your LCD monitor. After you turned PC on and monitor stopped working or went black, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not 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 or any image (Start menu), there will be a minor problem. This is because of CCFL lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. You don't need to do anything with the inverter board in this case. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

Monitor shuts off


Is the monitor light turning off, indicating the monitor is turning off? Or is the monitor/computer going to sleep?
How do you get the monitor to turn back on?
Verify the power cord is securely plugged into both the monitor and the outlet.
Try a different outlet.

Have just upgraded to windows 7 and my Viewsonic vx715 is only recognised as a generic PnP monitor and I can't load drivers from disc supplied. monitor is approx 6yrs old and still going fine!


In most cases you don't need the drivers for a monitor to work completely fine. In order to obtain your drivers you can always check the manufacturers website and they should have drivers listed, in your case they do. Although I couldn't locate VX715 i found many VX models in the driver search. There should be one that works fine, just make sure you download the right right IE: windows 7 x32/86 if your running a 32-bit operating system, or windows 7 x64 if you are running a 64 bit operating system. Here is the website I located http://www.viewsonic.com/support/downloads/drivers/

It's a Viewsonic VX715 Monitor. When it's turned ON, It goes black in 3 seconds.


It can be one of thses: bad caps (bulging top or bottom seal) in the power supply, bad backlight inverter circuits, bad lamps. You need to open it up and lool for bad caps first, then measure the voltages across the filter caps, you should have 5vdc and 12~18vdc (there are two power supplies: 5vdc for logic, 12~18vdc for backlights citcuits) Post back what you find so we can guide you further, see example of failed VIEWSONIC monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
