Your PC video resolution is too high for this monitor to display, you need to set it to the native resolution of the monitor, 1024 x 768 @60Hz

Shuts off to a dark grey, turn VS power off>baon to display image


You may have failing DC filter caps in the power supply just like Viewsonic monitors you can see in my albums, you is about the same as 2235.
If you are not going to DIY you will be better off putting the money toward new monitor, estimate repair up to $100.

Out of range message seen after installed new software and reboot


Native resolution of this VIEWSONIC is1280x 1024 @60Hz.

You will get that message because the PC is putting out higher resolution than it can display.

Out of range message seen after installed new software and reboot


The monitor will display out of range message because the PC video resolution is too high for the monitor to display, the new software may have changed or corrupt the video seting, try booting up in safe mode (hit f8 while computer booting up) and set the video resolution to 640 x 480, then reboot in regular mode, then reset the resolution to the native resolution of this monitor which is 1280x1024@60Hz.

Attention out of range monitor H:95.1KHZ V:59.8HZ


You can solve this by choosing "Last known good configuration that worked" instead of going into safe mode. This will take your old display settings that worked.

Monitor displays then shuts off


Have you verified the video card in the computer with a different monitor? Does the going to sleep message come up prior th the monitor going dark? The bulbs are ok since you do see a picture for a short time. The voltage swing you see on the power supply is too large. It should always be 12 v + or- 10%.

My ViewSonic computer monitor keeps displaying a Vga Not Support Message upon booting then the message Out Of Range comes up on a completely dark screen. Need Help


It sounds like the computer is trying to use a resolution that the monitor cannot handle. Boot into safe mode by pressing the f8 key during boot up and select safe mode. Once booted, right click on the desktop and select properties. In settings lower the resolution by moving the bar to the left and reboot.

I would move it all the way down, you can then move it up a step at a time once you are in normal mode again.

Hope this helps

About a problem in my viewsonic monitor


Hi

Actually the common problem of viewsonic LCD monitor is bad electrolytic capacitor at primary, secondary & inverter area, if your lcd using power adaptor test the voltage out, use analog or digital tester range 50v dc, if the voltage out is accurate dont be sure to your adaptor working good, open it and find bad electrolytic capacitor inside. That is common problem of viewsonic LCD monitor could cause of display flashing then back to black after few seconds. Suspect inverter area lastly mainboard.

Gud Luck!
