Question about ViewSonic VA720 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Have ViewSonic LCD monitor . I have had this ongoing annoying problem that comes and goes. Does anyone know how I can resolve it? I don't want to pay money for a new one or take it into a shop (too expensive). Is there something I can do to resolve it on my own? Heres the problem: The monitor goes blank (black screen), like the light dims down so bad, it looks like it is off when using the computer. It happens doing random things like surfing the internet, word processing, listening to music,etc. This happens 3 or 4 times a day when using the computer. To get the monitor screen back to normal I have to keep hitting the ON button, turning it on and off. Sometimes this fixes it right away. sometimes it takes 30 minutes to come back on. sometimes if will flicker on for a split second and then go off. What can i do about this short of throwing it out the window? Please

My monitor(Viewsonic VA912b) flashes on and then goes to a black screen. Anyone know what is causing this?


Could be a few things.

It could be the resolution settings.
It could be that your monitor isn't connecting to your computer. In this case you would have to get a card for the monitor to plug into.
It also could be that it's not supported by the OS.

ViewSonic VA912b monitor fading out during boot


It is probably the power supply, or the inverters.

Similar problem with solution, though it requires you to know something about electronics.

Monitor going black after a few seconds can be caused by a faulty power supply or inverter. Some monitors have both as one unit.
Sometimes it is basic failed capacitors, After that then I would look at transistors.
The average monitor from 17 to 20 and sometimes the 22s have usually 4 bulbs in them. One bad bulb will also cause the inverter to not fire up.
Bad bulbs usually show pinkish tint, or flickering or are dark at center top or bottom of the display.
