It sounds like a bad power board inside the monitor. Or Inverter board. Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do. (Aside from sending it back under warranty) if it is still valid for that.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the feedback. Sadly the monitor is a few years old and the warranty is up, so looks like new monitor time."

The computer was in use when the display cut out. The monitor is fine and the computer turns on but has no display on the monitor


I presume that you tried the monitor on another system to verify function. Try restart after 2 min power down and disconnect and try again, then take another "known good" monitor and try that. If both monitors give no image, video output is suspect. Many motherboards have the video output as part of the board itself, cost prohibitive to replace motherboard.
Sometimes you can plug in a PCI video card and bypass system video.

Whyisscreen jumpy and jerky


mcdevito75 here, You can try, shut down your computer useing START SHUT OFF COMPUTER, when computer is shut down double check all connections at the computer and Monitor, also check wall socket. Now! restart your computer, check the controls on the monitor, if you have a button auto press it, this will automatically set your monitor. If all this fails, contact Dell, you may have a faukty monitor. Computer does not control monitor screen except for brightness and volume, problem most likely with the monitor itself.

1.Right click on desktop
2.Select properties.
3.Select "ScreenSaver".
4.Select "Power" under Monitor power option.
5.There select "never" from Turn off monitor (drop down menu).

Now your monitor will not turn off automatically.

Hp flat panel monitor comes on shows logon and then blank screen


Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on?
If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps.
If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

Screen is on, but does not appear to be on


The monitor was broken. I returned it to the vendor for replacement. Your tech did not seem to feel it was a monitor problem and only focused on the video card - although I asked him directly regarding his confidence of it being a videio card problem versus being a monitor problem.

I will not use your service again.

Monitor randomly shuts off and computer restarts


After you turned it on and the screen shut off, check the image on the screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If the computer shut down immediately after the monitor shut off, it might be because of fault operating system. Check with another monitor.
Thank you,

Turns off and on by itself


Ok so its connected to your pc?
check settings on the monitor itself [if you'restill able to do that]
disconnect all your usb devices restart your computer and try again.

Is it in a cold room ? that might be the problem.

Is it in the same powerbar as your computer ?
I'm not sure but if your power outlet where you connect it is simply looped to the rest that are in use [lazy electrician] then it might turn off because a power shortage.

Good luck

ViewSonic Monitor has trouble to wake up after been shut down?


Ok sounds to me like a power supply problem.. this a a fairly common symptom. I suggest that as a temporary fix you set the monitor to NOT turn the power off to the monitor in sleep mode if possible, in your power settings for the monitor.

Nothing on the screen after power on


Turn on the computer and complete the following steps: Step 1: Check cable connections (If you can see the initial HP or Compaq logo screen but later lose the picture, you can skip to Step 2.) check the video cable connection on the back of the computer and on the monitor. Make sure that it is connected properly and the connecting screws are tight. Turn the monitor off and then back on again (while the computer is on) to see if an image appears. Some Flat Panel monitors have two similar power input connections placed side-by-side on the back of the monitor, which sometimes allows them to get confused for one another. One connector is used to supply power to the speakers with a separate power cord, while the other connector is used for the monitor's power adapter. Ensure that you have the monitor's power adapter cord plugged into the power connector and not the speaker connector. After you have reconnected the power cord, turn on the monitor (while the computer is on) to see if an image appears. If there is still no image, continue to the next Step. Step 2: Resetting the monitor At first setup, or under certain signal conditions, the monitor may not be able to switch to a new display resolution. Do NOT shut down or restart the computer. Instead, perform the following steps: Turn off the monitor using the Power button on the front. If the Power button does not respond, unplug the power cord from the back of monitor and wait five seconds. Plug the power cord back in. You should see the image from the computer on the screen.
