You may have caps leaking in the power supply or arcing from the lamp assemblies, you need to open it up.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed VIEWSONIC monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

    When power supply is bad, it can cause a lot of strange problem since the circuits are not getting steady DC voltages feeding them.

1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

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 viewsonic.com 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.

Speakers on monitor are not making any sounds... how do i check


VX2255 does not have built-in speaker, see spec here: http://www.viewsonic.com/products/desktop-monitors/lcd/x-series/vx2255wmb.htm
It has built-in webcam and microphone.
Please verify the model.

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.

Moved the monitor from one computer to another. Now it says "no signal analog"

Viewsonic VG 900 displays briefly, then goes blank


What Usually causes these to go on and off quickly is one af a couple things.

Usually it is the powerboard not putting out enough power to run the video board and the inverter.

Sometimes it is the actual inverter board. I have seen a plain small fuse stop these cold.

Rarely, but it could be a bad bulb in the screen. Bad bulbs usually start dark in the middle, or they start off pink. They can also flicker while they are on.

If you can take it apart and have a dc tester, the problem may be able to be found.
I repair some viewsonics , mostly VXs series, but I have done a couple of these.

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.
