Question about ViewSonic VA1930WM LCD Monitor

1 Answer

ViewSonic VA1930wm Screen stays on for about 2 seconds, and then goes off. 1) If no computer is connected you get a "no signal" message which stays for about 1 seconds and then goes off; blue power light switches to amber. 2) If a computer is connected the full Windows screen flashes on for about 1 to 2 seconds and then it flashes off (what appears on the display depends on where in Windows the system happens to be at that particular time). The monitor goes through this cycle about every 5 to 10 seconds, or so!

Very typical of View Sonic. Sounds like a back backlight or inverter. I would go to www.viewsonic.com and open up a RMA. Most view sonic screens have a 3 year warranty. They will repair at no cost ..(if it is within that period) There is a date code on the back of the screen that will help you validate the above information.

My viewsonic monitor goes black after booting up


Does it do the same with other PC?
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 VIEWSONIC 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.

Screen turns on briefly then off, a few seconds later on again, then off. It is mostly dark, but turns on for about a second, then off.


Open it up and look for bad caps with bulging tops, also check for 12v for the backlight inverter circuits. See some example of failed Viewsonic monitors here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

You need to isolate the problem to see if there's a problem with the monitor or with the sound card of the computer.

To isolate this problem, please try the steps below:

1. Make sure that the monitor is properly connected to the computer.
2. Check the volume of the monitor and the volume properties of the computer.
3. Try to connect your monitor into a known working computer.

Screen goes to sleep after "no signal" message


If you do not move the mouse or press any key on the keyboard it could be just going into video power save. Confirm it by moving the mouse or pressing a key on the keyboard. If the monitor comes back on, adjust the power settings in control panel and change the time for the "turn off display" to a more suitable setting.
