Look for bad caps in the power supply section, that will be the first place to look. 90% of LCD monitor failures are due to bad caps.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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.

Viewsonic - VA2226w - dual monitor configuration. Monitor is black / no image- all test pass showing monitor is functioning properly.


Swap this monitor with the main one.
If it works, you may simply not have the secondary output enabled in the operating system.

In Windows for example, in the video properties, there's a place where you choose which video card you're dealing with (and/or which output or monitor) and there's a checkbox that says "extend my desktop to this monitor"
If that's not enabled, monitor 2 will be blank !

If the monitor doesn't work in the same connector that the working monitor is in, you may have bad capacitors in this one.

Watch the video below on how to fix that issue.

ViewSonic VA2226w, horizontal light coloured lines through image regardless of resolution. They get worse when the monitor has been running for a while. Display otherwise working, powers up and down fine...


The lines appearing on the screen have nothing at all to do with the resolution. If the OSD display is correct (when the LCD is not connected to the PC), then the possible issue could be the RAM. Open the PC case and check if you have more than one RAM stick. Try using one RAM at a time and swaping RAM slots to see if the display is shown correctly. Make sure that the PC is turned off and power is disconnected before you remove/ install RAM. Most of the times lines appearing on the screen are due to faulty RAM. I suggest that you may also connect the LCD with some other PC to check if the issue is with the LCD or not.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!
