Question about ViewSonic VA721 17" LCD Monitor
Look for bad caps, shorted transistors, etc. See my pictures here: Basic LCD monitor troubleshooting guide:
Please read my guide and learn about bad caps and look at the pictures of failed VIEWSONIC and all other brands of monitors.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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 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.
