Question about ViewSonic VX2255 Monitor

DVI connection fault

Hi
I have a viewsonic vw 2255wmb, and its been working fine. I have it connected to my pc (asusen8800gt graphics card) via a DVI connection. The monitor sits in standby mode and when i turn on the PC up it comes (little blue light turns red and I get a picture). However when I turned it on yesterday the pc powered up but the monitor did not, displaying the message"no digital input" or words to that effect. Idid the usual turn it of check the cables etc but no joy. I then got an old lcd monitor and plugged that into the PC via the same socket but using a DVI-Dsub adapter and an old Dsub cable and it worked fine. i then then disconnected and plugged in the viewsonic in the same way, using its optional d-sub input on the viewsonic and it worked fine also, but obviously not in "digital" mode so the screen is noticably less crisp. I'm going to buy a new cable this afternoon as it's the cheapest place to start failing that i'm lost

    Exactly the same problem. When the computer pwers up the blue light comes on longer enough to see a message about no digital input. then the scree returns to standby mode with not picture. I have tried removing driver and reinstalling but no success. Another monitor works fine with the same power cable and digital visdeo cable. Any ideas? Thanks.

I had the same problem, you must call Viewsonic to change your screen. The DVI input on the screen is dead.

No signal ???????


I have the same problem in setting up two displays, a Dell as primary and a VA2223wm Viewsonic as secondary, both connected to an Nvidia geforce 9500 GT. I think it might be the cable, but it's baffling. I have one DVI cable that seems to work on either monitor, and either plug on the graphics card. The second DVI cable doesn't seem to work, but when it's connected to the Viewsonic, the Nvidia control panel detects the monitor as secondary, so I can change settings, etc., but the monitor still says no signal. Each monitor works separately when connected with one cable, but not with the other.

Thoughts?

So what exactly is wrong? It seems like you have dual screen enabled. Try mousing beyond the edge of you PC screen, the cursor may move onto the TV. If you don't want dual screen, there's an option for clone display instead.

First thing I would try will beusing this monitor with another PC using the same the same setup to see if it works OK. We need to narrow down the cause of the problem first since you have three parts that can be bad; Monitor, DVI cable, PC Video card/PC. It is just a process of elimination to locate the problem.

Make sure your monitor is set up to recieve what ever signal you are wanting via the monitor's menu. There should be an input button on the monitor to select the signal type. The connection really doesn't matter as long as you are able to use the monitor. There could be something wrong with the connector on the video card. Also make sure you are using the card and are not using the onboard graphics connection by mistake. If the problem persists it is more than likely the card.

VGA connection works, DVI does not


Everything seems perfectly normal...

When you connect the computer to the monitor via an analog VGA cable, you get signal on the analog input.
When you connect them via a DVI cable, you feed the monitor's DIGITAL input, so the monitor doesn't get any signal on it's analog input, and informs you about it.
You have to select the digital input from the monitor's On Screen Menu, and then start the computer up - you should see the picture OK.
Also remember to set the display resolution on your computer to match the optimum (native) resolution of your monitor - this will give you optimum picture quality. In case of VA712B it will be 1280x1024.
Good luck and please come back with a testimonial if helped.

these cards do require that additional power be given to them from the power supply. Have you connected the card to your PC power supply via the 3 pin connector and power connector.

Also uninstall the driver via safe mode and let it redetect in normal mode then install the latest drivers for your card. Download from ati.com

what you have the ATI card hooked up can you see the boot screen? If you can see that you might want to try going into safe mode and making sure your graphics settings aren't set beyond the capability of your monitor. If you can't see the boot screen then your card might be dead.
