Viewsonic VX2255wm-3 monitor stuck in analogue mode. For some reason it won't switch back to digital. This reduces sharpnes, makes colours seem washed-out, and and makes some games like Dawn of War 2 unplayable. I've had this problem a lot of times since I got this monitor, and usually it just fixes itself after a while. Now It's happened again, and I don't feel like waiting it out. Any ides on how to fix this?

Does the menu controls work on front panel?If so you can try factory reset or Recall as it is called on some monitors.

If the monitor is not turning blue that means it isn't picking up on the signal that is coming to it.
Pushing the power button on the monitor should make the monitor work and give you a no signal note if it isn't getting signal.
If it won't power on with its own power button you maybe having a low voltage problem in the monitor itself which isn't giving it enough to fire up after it has been sitting.
Just a note these monitors use and make power even when they are off, unless they are unplugged.
I'm thinking along this route also because when you said you unplugged it for a while that it did turn back on.
Only way to verify it, is to double check the monitor on another computer. and if it is the same then it will have to come apart.
Power issues are very common in lcd monitors, Lots of heat in a confined space. The bigger they get the hotter they get.
You would think they would have incorporated internal fans in these by now. But then they wouldn't sell as many !!!

SOURCE: audio adjust screen pop up

I contacted ViewSonic with the same problem. They told me to turn off the monitor and unplug all the cables. Then hold the power button on the monitor for 10 seconds. Turn it back on and it should be gone.

If that doesn't work, I was told to do a memory recall on the monitor by pressing the 1 button and selecting memory recall from the list. It sets the monitor back to factory settings.

I haven't tried any of these yet but hopefully they work for someone.

My screen is saying burn in and keep switching colours all the time.(white,red,green,blue.


You may need to send in unit for service because your unit is unable to go to sleep mode when the signal cable is disconnected or the PC is turned off. Please call ViewSonic Customer Care for support.

Although this will not hurt the monitor, you just need to apply an active video signal to get a display correctly. However, it will not work as expected to go into sleep mode. You'll need to call ViewSonic Customer Care to get this taken care of.

My Viewsonic VX924 monitor is not working on the DVI input. Have checked output from graphics card output and lead on another monitor, ok. When digital input selected, screen goes blank then reverts to...


Open the monitor, examine the circuit boards. Look for small components that look like small cans, these are capacitors. If you see any that look bulged on top, then your problem can probably be solved by replacing these. Check out the following sites;

Viewsonic VX2255wm - worked this morning - dead this afternoon?


The problem you have sounds like the inverter board has failed it can be repaired by replacing the inverter board which may be a cheaper option than buying a whole new monitor, you can do a search online for lcd repairs and spares to find the part you looking just state your make and model and price one up.

But before you do do that, and you feel confident that you could take the back cover off the monitor, you could have a look for blown capacitors, they are quite a comman fault in lcd monitors, once the back cover is off check the power supply board, it will be where the power cord plugs into the monitor, The capaciters are barrel like in shape with silver tops, check for any leakage from them or on the board surrounding the capacitors, also make sure they are fully flat at the top, if they are slightly domed or pretruded they will need to changed. post back your findings if you do find any bad caps ill will try to explain how to get the right ones and what do to. cheers.

The digital input does not work


Make sure that you dont have both VGA and DVI connected at the same time. Just DVI will do. Reboot and see if you get POST. Or te dos screen that the computer dose in the beginning counting somethings.

Please do not adjust RGB unless you know what you are doing.
For critical color work, you will need to use a photospectrometer and calibration software to analyze what your monitor is spitting out.
There are a million obvious reasons you should not trust your eye making arbitrary RGB adjustments off the hip.
