Question about ViewSonic VA721 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor is changing colors and won't wake up

My monitor went into sleep mode after several minutes of no use, and at first, wouldn't wake up again. I tried disconnecting the power, then the connection to the computer, but it still wouldn't come out of sleep mode. After trying disconnecting again, it went into a mode where it's cycling through colors on the screen. At one point the words 'burn in' was in the middle, but that went away, now it's just changing colors.

This problem should not be only with your monitor, but also with your video card. You might have left one image sitting for long hours. There is no specific solution, but for Lcd users, you can try this. Leave the monitor off for few hours without any connection, maybe power chord or vga/dvi/hdmi cable. If this doesn't fix then the problem must be from your video card. You can try the monitor on another system to make sure, which one is the culprit. Your last choice is to reset the bios, to do this, remove the bios battery and leave it for few minutes outside (2 mins will do) and put it back. Reboot your system, this will fix your problem. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

My kobo is in sleep mode and won't wake up


Turn it off by pressing and holding the power button for 5-8 seconds. Restart it.
When it's up. Update the video driver. You can find the driver in the manufacturer's website. However, if you want to cover all possible driver-related issues like what you are currently experiencing then use RadarSync.

I hope this helps!

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

How do I wake up the monitor when it goes to sleep when not used for a short time.


slapping it around usually works. "just a joke!"

tapping a few keys on your keyboard and moving the mouse will usually wake the monitor from sleep mode.

AOC Monitor says "no signal" and won't wake up!


This monitor refuses to wake up because it cannot find the signal from the computer.

When the light is amber, force the pc to shut down by holding the power button until all lights go off. Then, after about 10 seconds, power the pc back up again.

If this does not start your monitor, unplug all the monitors connections and plug them back in again. These things should reform the connection from the pc to the monitor.

good luck
