Question about ViewSonic VA705b Monitor
A ViewSonic VA705b monitor looks fine while displaying 1024x768x16 or greater resolution screens, but the backlight dims excessively when you switch to "text" mode, such as displaying BIOS boot messages or operating in pure text mode under Linux. It appears that the electronics in the monitor automatically adjust the backlight brightness in certain cases, and I'd like to find a way to disable that behavior if possible. I have 12 more days to return it for a refund at Amazon if the problem can't be resolved. Thanks in advance -- Rick Slater

Sounds definitely like a failed backlight. Here's a link that tells step-by-step how to replace one: http://www.fonerbooks.com/laptop_5.htm

If you are running DVI-D(the white connector) then it isn't getting a digital handshake. If you have inspected the connection between the 2 and make sure there is no bent pins inside the connector that it mates with. If you have another computer, try to connect to that one.
Open windows start menu, right click on my computer, then choose properties. Next choose Hardware, then Device manager. Once there, double click on display adapters to see if installed correctly. If good, click Monitors. If good, then your video card driver must need reinstall or update as usual. Also do you have the correct driver for you monitor? How does it react when you uninstall the monitor driver(can you select 32bit and higher resolution in default drivers?
If none of this works, I would suspect that the replaced component failed due to static or faulty components within the electronics.
Is there any other changes to the PC (new video card, updated Directx9.0?)
Hope this helps and let me know if I can be of anymore assistance?

I have two broken VP201 monitors with different symptoms. One was black screen green light - like yours. The other was purple speks flying all over the screen., purple tint.
I swapped the power supplies and display boards, both monitors had original problems. I swap the inverters and the monitor which was black screen now appeared to work okay - but slightly pink and the monitor which was purple speks is now black screen.
I would therefore assume that both my inverters gone, one being on it's way out. You probably have the black-screen case.

I RMA'd this probablem as well. They asked the usual questions -- try it alone, check the connections, are you using VGA or DVI... blah blah. Eventually they could give me an RMA.
They have customer support via phone on Sundays in the US, which is nice. Total time from calling to RMA was about 20 minutes.
