Question about ViewSonic VX910 19" LCD Monitor

No power to monitor despite being plugged in

I turned off my monitor one night. The next morning, I couldn't get the monitor to power up. The power button blinks very faintly, but no power to the monitor screen. Is it dead? It is nearly 3 years old. Thanks for any help.

    Yup we have the same problem with ours' however i changed the monitor out with another one.



    the one i changed it with does not have the dvi cable on it. just the standard monitor plug, and sound. picture is back with the change..



    My monitor is only 3 years old as well and is a 19" model #VA712B



    when we shut the computer down, it will not desplay a picture and when you turn the power on and off all it does is flicker quikly and thats it..



    Not shure if the power supply to the monitor would have anything to do with it???



    Any sug on this??



    Thanks

Looks like I have a ViewSonic lemon as well. 3 yrs and 4 mo old. Displays briefly then goes dark. Seems like they would have a more reliable product. No more ViewSonic for me. I'm going with a different vendor..

I have the same exact problem. It is just over 3 years old so the warranty is expired. Did a live chat with a ViewSonic rep and was told that I have to take it to a local shop for repairs because it appears to be a hardware issue. I happen to have another computer next to mine, so I connected the monitor to it. No change. I checked cables, turned it off and on, etc., and nothing. There are plenty of other forums on the internet addressing this issue. Some folks say it's the back light or power supply. In either case, no more ViewSonic for me.

Check your video card. Is your computer booting up?

    Is your computer coming on, but the monitor is not?
    Did you check your video card?. You can put another video card in it and see if it solves the problem. You did not even let me know if you tried anything before you rated the question.

Flashing green power light - Black screen


I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard

Monitor gone black


Hi there, You do have a Hardware Problem, a Electronic Parts. If the scree is fine for about a minite and then goes black again then you may have a cold solder on the board of the monitor or a defective parts on Horrizontal Section for your screen. You may need to repalce some electronic parts. TY

DCLCD 19" flatscreen won't turn on correctly


Same problem here, but after using the plugging/unplugging method it eventually stopped all together. So, I took it to a local monitor repair shop (AM Stereo, Seattle). The problem is a power supply issue where the capasitors go bad. They fixed the monitor by replacing the capacitors for $70. In there experience, all monitors, regardless of brand, tend to use the same cheap capacitors which fail. He replaced them with better quality capacitors which may make this monitor better than it ever was. I'm back in business with a great monitor!
