Look for bad caps as shown in my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Viewsonic%20VA721/

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.

Princeton VF723 monitor is getting very dark. Brightness control is up full. Do I need a new monitor or maybe just a new driver?


i would start looking for a nice 22" LCD monitor.
Your monitor was manufactured by phillips and this symptom is very common. The crt gun gets week and has low emissions. The vid card driver has very lillte to do with the brightness control. However if your card is one of the newer nvidia or ati cards there are control ls in the software for brightness. color temp. contrast ect. Doesn't hurt to check but my guess is monitor.
Check out a LG or view-sonic for new ones.

My view sonic monitor gat very dark. can still see but very dark. do I need a new monitor ? was fine last night and this morning had problem. I didn't shut down over night.


It sounds as though either the backlights or the inverter(which supplies power to the backlights) has gone. If you can still see the desktop but only if you look closely and it is very dark, then the monitor will need repairing or replacing. If it is the invertor it can be done at a resonable cost - if it is the backlight it would probably not be worth repairing. Also it will cost just for an engineer to check it out.

Sound on the View Sonic Monitor


Yes, they are on the front of the screen. There should be a volume up and down button right on the front (usually to the left of the power). If there isn't a separate up and down, try the Menu or 1 and 2 buttons.
