My VX924 Green Led Blinks until fully booted to windows
I'm Mexican I'm having this failure common on most users here, but i would try it to explain it better
I have a ABIT AN7 mobo, AMD ATHLONXP 3000, AGP GEFORCE MX4000 card
Sometimes it started to give me troubles when i try it to turn it on, it started to give me troubles and i see no signal to windows fully booted (then i try it to describe fully my problem)
When i turn on the pc i only see a image of the agp bios, but i dont see the ABIT logo of the Motherboard, it only gets signal until Windows XP screen when it boots, then i loss image and untill it is on windows
When i try to run for example (hirens boot cd i get not signal)
I've used other monitor on same pc, same vga card and the monitor is giving signal fine on every screen
When i use this VX924 on this same pc and config is giving me troubles
Now the VX924 is working on windows at 1278 x 1024 @60 but the problem is on motherboard menu and some msdos stuff
Not same happened on other pc that it has onboard gpu, so i dont want to have my monitor back paying a repair fee for checking the monitor
I'm Mexican i've brought this monitor on april 2006 so it is on warranty still (3 year warranty)
Thanx a lot any suggestion to send it to warranty?
Would be a great idea to all people here report this failure, or make a webpage or testimonial giving serial number to pressure viewsonic

Re: My VX924 Green Led Blinks until fully booted to...
Ok if what im understanding is you tried on another computer and it worked great
the monitor is not your problem the problem lies with your video card
the video card could be outdated
the video card could need updated software
the video is haveing a conflict with another IrQ on *********** board this is common in computers haveing conflicts
now if your not use to computers i would suggest to take it down to nears computer tech. store and have them set your IrQ for you this can get confusing
ask them if they can show you a walk threw on how to set the IrQ incase this happens again say if you do a restore on your comp i know you dont want to pay for it again to have them fix it
or you can call "GeekSquad" they can come to your home and fix it for you and show you a walk threw this might be better for u
i hope this helped you alot

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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 LG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague http://www.badcaps.net
My VX924 did the same thing but now displays nothing and power switch light just blinks. According to an answer listed on previous page, it may have bad capacitors. I may have to take a look at them. Viewsonic repair facility examination of this monitor runs $70.
I sure sounds like you have backlight problem, since when the VGA cable is connected the power LED turns GREEN and blinks when VGA cable is disconnected, it means the video signal is getting to the monitor OK, so more likely the problem will be in the monitor, but just to be sure, you should also try this monitor with another PC first.

I will assume that you have already try this monitor with another PC and new VGA cable and get the same result.

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages. Good Luck!
This is a generic symptom that could happen to any LCD
The following is a generic answer applicable to most.
The most possible causes are bad capacitors or a bad
Open the unit and check to see if any of the capacitors in the power supply or
other boards look domed or vented on the top.
Replace any capacitors accordingly. Use the same value capacitors. Most often,
1000uF 16V or 25V, 470uF at 16 or 25V, 220uF at 16V or 25V.
If this doesn’t solve the problem, try checking the surface-mount transistors
on the inverter board that run the lights. Some times these transistors go bad
and can cause the power to cycle up and down. Check the area for any cracked or
overheated ceramic or mylar capacitors.
Don’t forget to check for caps on the main board. Some times these boards are
overly simple and only have a couple of caps, but other times they are teaming
while the monitor is still powered on, but with the LED flashing, unplug the monitor from the PC. press the power button, and the monitor should go off, now plug the pc back into the monitor. Turn the monitor back on and it should work.
Occasionally this will not work for me, but if I repeat it it normally works
Hope this helps - my problem is intermitant so it may be different to what u guys have
