Question about ViewSonic Computers & Internet
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), 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 monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

This is most likely a power supply failure, many many places offer a fixed repair price, for instance i have just seen a local PC shop offer monitor fixes for a flat $50.00. So look about for deals like that.
But usually when they break i recommend that a NEW unit be purchased as these days they are very very cheap 2nd hand and even new, and a new unit has a warranty too.
I get monitors all the time in my shop, and usually they are NOT economically repairable, often due to the fact that one cannot obtain parts for units much over a year or so old.
Also usually again, with experience and practical experience and according to the figures, a unit that faults, has 70% chance of faulting again after repaired within the next 6 months, as usually it has been stressed and something else will fail.
So my advice is to get a "Quote" for the repair from a good service center and go from there.
