Question about ViewSonic VA721 17" LCD Monitor
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.
