Question about ViewSonic VA720 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

I have two Viewsonic VA720 monitors that need ten minutes to warm up before the win/xp pro screen appears. According to a quick look on the internet, this problem seems to be common with this monitor. Is there a fix besides never turning the monitor off?

LCD monitor (viewsonic va720) "No signal"


You will need to disconnect the VGA cord that is connecting the monitor to the hard drive. Once you have that disconnected, try attaching another cord to determine if the cord is the issue. If you dont have another cord to test, then you will have to purchase another one from your local computer parts store and attach to determine if that is the issue you are having.

If the cord does not work, then you will have to take your monitor into a repair shop as there maybe an issue with the receiving port on the monitor.

I hope this was helpful and thanks for asking the experts.

What voltage do i need for my ViewSonic VA720


Monitors and PCs (amongst other things) use a fairly standard power cable. You should not need to worry about the specifics as there is generally no transformer needed for a monitor.

Have just hooked up my Viewsonic VA720 moniter as the main moniter to a new laptop that I have. The laptop is an ACER Travelmate 6293 running windows XP. When I come to start up my computer each morning...


You most likely have a capacitor that has changed value. When a capacitor goes bad it will work after it heats up. Sometimes a bad cap will have a bulging top or show signs of leakage. Sometimes can only be checked with a meter.

Problem with 17" ViewSonic Monitor


The same problem w/ my viewsonic E70 17" monitor.The viewmeter or viewmatch color on screen do not appear when power ON, although the green led power is ON.

But if you rest your monitor for about 10 hrs or more the viewmeter will appear when you power ON the monitor.

You can now start your CPU.

Remember : No viewmeter screen on monitor when power ON, means no supply coming out the picture tube or high voltage.

But if there is Viewmeter on screen , this normal and OK>
