Lately there have been times when it is almost sepia color. Help! Please make the answer simple because although I use my computer daily for work, I'm not at all good with maintenance, etc. Many thanks, k.

You do not degauss LCD monitor, it does not use electron beams (affected by magnetic field, if the showdow mask is magnetized, it can mees up color display) for making pictures like LCD.
You only degauss CRT type monitor.

ViewSonic VP201b with a black screen


hramirez, Retevo. com says time to retire this old monitor. Its that or you will need to do some extensive reading here on fixya on how and what to look for inside the unit that could be causing your black screen condition!!! Then you will go to YOUTUBE and view some of the many video clips that deal with "lcd monitor repair" and lcd monitor disassembly". Have you noticed any bad, swollen top, elcetrolytic filter capacitors on the units "switch-mode-power-supply/CCFL inverter printed circuit board?? How about any "cold" frosty looking solder joints around the component leads of the power transistors and ferrite inverter transformers? May need to get large magnifying glass to find those pesky little cold solder joints. 12fixlouie

Vp201b wont turn on


Checkto see if you do have 12vdc output from the power supply module as shown in my pictures: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Viewsonic%20VP201B/

Look for bad caps (leaking/bulging tops).

Display flickers than scrambles.


Most likely loose connection at PC. Check that monitor connector pins are not bent. Ensure that he monitor plug screws are screwed into the connector to prevent plug movement, at the PC and in the case of some monitors, also at the back of the monitor. If this does not correct the problem, there is probably a fracture in one of the solder joints on the VGA board at the connector.

It probably isn't worth repairing as the cost will exceed what you would spend on replacing it.

My monitor changes colors


CRT monitors can last way past 4 years if taken care of. Please give more detail of your problem since there's not much we can tell by your description. What colors? what was the progression of the problem? can you attach a screen shot? Please comment back
