So the dvi side of the lcd screen would be faulty then. Is the screen still under warranty? its generally year or more in these, I have 3 years in my Asus displays.

Check your warranty if you still have warranty that should cover the repair or replacement.

1. It could be limitation of your video card. Older cards would not support high resolution for LCD monitors.
2. Be sure to use DVI(digital) output from your video card. You will not get a good resolution with VGA(analog)
3. When installing driver for a monitor sometimes you will get a chose to install analog(VGA) or digital(DVI) driver. Choose the correct driver.

Good luck!

Did you check your video card settings to see if its enabled,

To do thsi you need a monitor so you can actually see what you are doing

1.) right click on the desktop and you should see you graphics card in the select menu. Click on your card. Browse the settings to see its digital enabled or something to that effect, or the monitor type (differecnt cards have different settings)
or
Right click the desktop and choose properties.

That should work actuall that can be the only problem, the monitor is fine its just the display settings thats not. Your friend's computer has the correct settings but yours and the 3 others does not.

    Look at the refresh rate, hardware accelleration and Resolution any of these can also affect the the display

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jul 15, 2008

    Lower your resolution and your refresh rate as well as the hardare accelleration to as lowest it it would go.. and find out what graphics card your friend is using and please specify what card u got.

That can be a problem with your video card, So if you have a spare video card try it on that monitor.

Hope that helps...........

No power to vx2235wm. How can I fix it?


Black screens or no pictures are usually caused by a failure in the back light power supply. Many times the monitor is working but with the back lights not turning on you can't see the display. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to open the unit and what to look for and replace to rebuild the power supply and bring the unit back to life.

We have a Viewsonic VX2235wm Black 22" Widescreen We have been experiencing a Grey shadow to the right - damn annoying. Can you please help.


There are "on-screen controls" (electronic) on the monitor and can adjust the screen "position" up-down, left-right, wider-narrower and perhaps twist; clockwise-counter clockwise).
Try that and see if it removes the grey (empty?) area.

Screen is black


Please look for bad caps as shown in my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Viewsonic%20VX2235W/

Common problem with all LCD monitors.
Make sure to use good caps such as PANASONIC FM or FC series from Digikey.

Few steps to take the stand and base off the 22" ViewSonic VX2235WM
1- Squeeze the bottom of the base to take the base off from the collar

2-This step is very important. The collar has two parts snapped in together, with 3 snap in each side. Carefully use small flat screw driver to take off the back side of collar

Viewsonic monitor -- VX2235wm LCD


avintagedish, Possible problem w/unit power supply. Go trade it in on new a new wide screen so the electronics technician in the repair area of the store can (with a little luck) put less than $10 in parts into your unit and maybe have a nice VX2235WM to give to his 10 year old kid to play games on. I sure hope you have a valid warranty!! You should verify that VX2235WM does same at KNOWN GOOD pc!!! Swap-in a KNOWN GOOD monitor to prove pc is OK!!! Read my FIXYA profile and learn "flashlight test" for "rude an crude" test of "switch-mode-power-supply" status. Follow the links you find there to other web sites for more info. Check to see if ViewSonic has a cash+old swapout for factory refurbished unit for premature failed units! I'm lmistyrel over on aim. and 12fixlouie on FIXYA good luck in your quest to fix unit. It can be fixed. Just do your research FIRST! So you don't get ROOKED if you contract out the work. Read, read, and read some more!! Visit YOUTUBE for video clips of LCD monitor repair and disassembly. FYI.
Bye for now.

I have a viewsonic 22'' (I think) model VX2235wm. It has both digital and analog connections in back. Can I use both -- one going to one PC, the other to a 2nd PC -- and switch between them?


yes you can. If you need further assistance on how to do it please let me know though its as simple as switching inputs with the buttons on the monitor.
Thank you,
