Swap this monitor with the main one.
If it works, you may simply not have the secondary output enabled in the operating system.

In Windows for example, in the video properties, there's a place where you choose which video card you're dealing with (and/or which output or monitor) and there's a checkbox that says "extend my desktop to this monitor"
If that's not enabled, monitor 2 will be blank !

If the monitor doesn't work in the same connector that the working monitor is in, you may have bad capacitors in this one.

Watch the video below on how to fix that issue.

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!
