    Whenever I try to use the inbuilt camera in my viewsonic vx 2255 monitor, the message 'please turn on the camera' appears. May I know how to turn the camera on, please?

    Same problem here!
    Installed CD driver before installing USB cable - no work!
    Installed CD driver after installing USB cable - no work!
    Download driver from Website - no work!
    When trying to re-install driver in Device Manager, the Wizard cannot find the driver in automatic, ViewSonic Webcam CD, or selected path to the same CD.
    Device manager has a yellow "?" with an indented "? ViewSonic 1.3M, USB2.0 Webcam. So XP find the new device but the driver cannot be found.
    ViewSonic online support told me to contact the computer manufacturer.

    I have the same problem with my viewsonic VX2255. Camera will not work. Keep receiving message to turn it on. Spoke with viewsonic tech support. Followed their instructions to re-install the driver from their website. Did that. Still does not work.. Also, the speakers sound REALLY tinny. Is that the way they are supposed to sound ?

    Do you have the USB cable which came with the monitor? You HAVE to use that cable. It looks exactly the same as a printer USB cable, but the camera will not work if you switched that cable for a printer USB cable.(don't ask me why...)

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.

Probably you have forgotten to install the USB-cable into the monitor. The camera signal uses USB and not DVI.

Good luck.

Webcam camera not on, how do I turn it on?

I think for this model, you need to load the device driver for the webcam. The program should be included with the CD ROM that came with the unit.

Onscreen menu is blue

Check the User Guide, here...

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 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.

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"

Click on the link below. This will display all the drivers for your VX2255. Install this driver on the new computer and the monitor will work properly.

I hope that you find this information helpful. If you do, please leave that feedback for me.

Thank You,

DVI connection fault

I had the same problem, you must call Viewsonic to change your screen. The DVI input on the screen is dead.
