This is most likely a power supply failure.

SOURCE: monitor goes black 1 second after coming to full screen

I have 2 systems with the FPD1500 monitor. They worked fine until I applied

SP2. After SP2, they will not start. They come on OK, display the Windows

XP splash screen and then go into sleep mode when the system starts the

proper display mode before the Windows XP login screen is displayed. If I go

into safe mode and uninstall the video adaptor and restart the system, it

will start properly. After it comes up, it finds the video adaptor and

installs it and the session proceeds OK. I can reset the resolution and

number of colors to 1024x768 and Highest (32 colors) and things look fine.

However, when I restart the system, it hangs up after the Windows splash

screen and the monitor goes to sleep.



If I put it into VGA mode, it will come up OK. But once I change any

resolution or number of colors, it imediately goes to sleep.

I would appreciate any help you could offer.

My monitor won't stay on


WOW another all in one problem. Looks like you are just about ready to be without a computer for a while. If you at least had things separate instead of being an all in one you could just plug another monitor and keep on rolling.

It sounds like either the LCD Inverter or the LCD Screen has issues.

Since the monitor is working normally other than turn off, I suggest plugging it into a power bar with switch. The pad switch is probably defective in the monitor.

There is probably a conflicting setting in your power management options. My recommendation is that you check the monitor setting in Windows and see how you have it set up. In Windows it is under CONTROL PANEL>POWER OPTIONS. There are a few differences between WINDOWS 7 and XP from here on out, but in general, do not select a scheme and do not select any hibernate, standby, or sleep modes. If you stick with a simple power saving option, like "TURN OFF MONITOR: After 15 mins." you should not have any further problems.

Many of the Windows "green schemes" will not work right with different combinations of BIOS, Hard drive, motherboard, and monitor. It is best to avoid them, unless you are very patient and willing to go the trial and error route. Good Luck!

the monitor is not getting any video information from your computer .. check the connection at the computer to make sure it is fully plugged in .. make sure the video card (if it has one) is securely in place ... make sure the monitor is actually plugged into the right connector .. you may have a bad video card or a damaged cable to your monitor .. you can plug the monitor into another computer to make sure its ok ..

Screen stays either black or white


Replace the entire DAC board (board with power suplly going into it) for easiest solution.

Viewsonic VG700b bug


The light turning to orange means the monitor is not getting a signal from the computer. Check your monitor cable at both ends and make sure it is in very tight and secure at the computer end as well. Also check to see if the computer stays on when the light goes to orange on the monitor. The power cord for the computer might be loose.
