The backlight is located inside the monitor behind the LCD screen, it looks like a thin florescent bulb. I would recommend not replacing it and just replacing the monitor. The bulb is cheap probably between 10 to 30 dollars, but you also may need the EMI kit, and with your labor involved you may not be saving any money. Also if you don't get the correct bulb you may have a green or hue effect.

Va1703 wb blinking problem


That is a sure indication of a failure in the power supply board. The problem is that Viewsonic used two different power supply boards in the va1703wb model. If you want to do the repair yourself you should be able to. If you can open the unit and send a picture of the power supply board to us at we would be glad to show you what parts need to be replaced to rebuild the board and get it back up and running.

My viewsonic monitor VA1703wb image doesn't fill the screen

There are a couple of reasons for this problem.
1. The screen resolution was set too low. Try 1024 X 768 or higher.
2. If you cannot change the screen resolution then the video driver was not installed or the wrong video driver was installed.
