Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and best wishes from all of us (two-legged and four-legged) to you and your family for a wonderful holiday season. I have to be honest, I am not a big fan of the holiday season and its emphasis on gift-giving, Santa Claus, and gigantic lighting displays. No matter what your religious beliefs may be, these holidays should be more about the message of peace and love, perseverance and miracles than retail sales and gaudy displays. With so much conflict and suffering from wars, famine, earthquakes, tsunamis, and hurricanes it is especially important this year to keep that message in mind and work to achieve that world of peace and love. My youngest granddaughter, Gracie (we call her lil'G to distinguish her from her granny), had her first sleep-over away from mom last night. Her biggest pal is Hammerhead. He doesn't stray more than a few feet from her when she visits. When I came home from work, Gracie squealed with delight at seeing her friend and Hammer was a total wiggle worm. Bulldogs love kids and it doesn't matter how much abuse lil'G heaps on him, he just responds with a lick on her face, eliciting another squeal. We are a retail establishment and notwithstanding my sentiments above we have enjoyed a big boost in sales for the holidays. We've been jammed in the retail store and the guys in the warehouse have been loading UPS trucks to the brim with iPods, Macs, digital cameras, and all kinds of accessories. We expect next week to be almost as busy as people buy the gifts they didn't get, spend year-end money for tax purposes, and spend gift certificates. We'll be open all week, including Monday. Our retail store will be open tomorrow, Christmas Eve, from 10 to 4 for all those hardcore procrastinators. Without any doubt, the iPod was the gift of the season. We were fortunate to have a good selection of iPods both of the current versions and discontinued and used iPods to satisfy just about everyone. It was fun to answer the phones this week and surprise people when they asked if we had iPods left. I talked to a lot of Kibbles & Bytes readers who recognized me. I particularly enjoy talking to those that say they read Kibbles every week, never agree with any of my soapboxes and yet take pains to tell me how much they like the newsletter and Small Dog. We have a white Christmas here in Vermont, with a winter storm warning for today and Christmas day. The valley is full of skiers and we'll surely see a bunch of those SUVs from the city off the roads, making for krills and plugged krills. What's a krill? It's a **** Mountain word that we invented to describe the mark that a car makes when it gets stuck in the snow on the side of the road. A plugged krill is where the car is still there. There are a lot of rumors and guesses leading up to Macworld in a couple of weeks and the excitement is building. I'm heading out to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas before I go to Macworld. I got a call from a public radio station looking for a "reporter" on the newest technology at these shows, so I'll be giving a one-hour segment on WILL when I get back. I guess I'd better grab brochures for some of the non-Apple stuff. This time I seem to have as many meetings with vendors at CES as I do at Macworld, which is a very unscientific way of saying that Apple is having cross-platform appeal

SOURCE: How do I reset a Viewsonic N2759w to Factory

On most Viewsonic TVs, hit menu (on the TV or your remote) go to Options (or Setup). The icon will look like a hammer with a double ended wrench across it (at least on my TV - a different model). Hit the down arrow and select Restore Default or Memory Recall. Select Yes and Enter when you see the prompt. Then exit the menu system (by hitting menu). The action is saved when you exit.

I hope this helps.

(the two different commands results from a change in Viewsonic's menu system - my print manual differs from the current on-line manual at Viewsonic's site. I'm not sure which set of commands will apply. If your TV menus are different, the names should still be similar.)

Hi I have a ViewSonic VE710S flat screen monitor model VS10047. the left side of the monitor is darker than the right side. Do you know what I will have to do to fic it?

My recommendation is to reset your monitor settings to original factory state. Here's the download link for your monitor user guide manual. there's an instruction how to reset your monitor to original state.

note: if nothing happen after resetting it, you need to contact your manufacturer. the lcd monitor is broken.

Good luck,

My screen suddenly developed horizontal lines in it. I tried everything, but the only thing that worked with "Memory Recall", which as I understand it, changes the settings back to the original...

It sounds like you have an issue with the monitor's power. Make sure all connections with the power cord and audio cables are secure. If this does not resolve the issue and the monitor is under warranty you may want to RMA it.

Is there a reset procedure for the VA712b?

Only resetting to factory default not resetting he EPROM. What is the problem with the monitor?
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed VIEWSONIC monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

Viewsonic VX2235wm Horizontal Image Problem

Tricky one. Have you tried using different dispay resolutions from your Windows Display Control Panel?
ie 1200x1014, 1600x1400, etc.

When you say you used the manual adjust, do you mean the horizontal sync option?

Did you perform a Settings Recall?

And most monitors have a way of entering into an engineering "Factory Service Menu". Usually by depressing specific buttons while the monitor is OFF, and then pressing the power button while still holding the others. Then let all button go at once. From there, hit the normal button that you use for getting into the OSD. In the OSD, there's usually a new field with all kinds of cool new settings to play with. One of them being a soft reset. You'll have to search the net for how to enter into your Factory service menu.

Oh wait! I know!
If your picture has moved to the right, move yourself accordingly.
So that now you and your picture will be aligned properly.

I have viewsonic 2230wm screen and it has gone white Put another screen onto PC it is ok , so fault with monitor

Check video cable to ensure all pins are straight. If the cable is detachable, try a different video cable.

Check the OSD menu settings (contrast, brightness, color adjustments). use the reset option to reset the monitor back to factory settings.

Check the user's guide to see if any special conversion connector or adapter is required for proper signal continuity between your specific video card and your model of LCD.

If that doesn't work, you have pretty much exhausted the things a user can do with it. here is the support contact form for Viewsonic:
