This is a sad way for computer manufacturers to get you to buy another monitor when the cord is bad. Some monitors have detachable cords that you can purchase at many big box stores for a reasonable price.

The short answer is no - the average person cannot repair this themselves UNLESS you have a familiarization of electronics and know what to buy and repair on the back of the monitors.

This takes a lot of time out of your day to replace a monitor cord thats permanently fixed to the back of the montior.

My long term solution to you is go and purchase yourself a flat panel monitor which has dropped in price, and make sure you have a detachable cord on that model so you can easily replace it in the future should it becomed damaged.

Why is my mon displays for 1 sec then turns off


Check to make sure your computer is sending a valid timing signal to the monitor. Make sure the power cord is inserted and secure. Make sure the video cable is secure (no broken/missing/bent pins) and the input source is selected correctly. Otherwise, contact ViewSonic customer support for assistance.

Soldering usually. Some connnectors were prefabricated with rubber being injection moulded. Your best bet is to purchase a 15 pin D connector and change the old one by soldering.

My monitor is making a electronic sort of distortion noise (sizziling). Anyway to rectify it?


Check the security of the power cord and look for damage to the plug and moulded plug, see the pins are in tight, vheck the plug socket on the monitor to see the reccieving pins are not bent or damaged.

After that, the issue lies in a short or developing short on the board, if you notice any smell (burning plastic ), you should stop using it and get it tested and repaired

"failure of "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp"


they can be repaired by an electronic tech but are cheaper buying a new one. The cost of new inverters range from 30-80$ USD. Viewsonics don't cost that much and now you can get 18.5 inch widw screen acer or other brand lcds for 89$.

i woudl really suggest just buying anew unit.

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.

No signal


This is more likely to be a problem with the connection between the graphics card & the monitor. The connection might be loose at one of the ends. Another possibility is that the cable connecting the graphics card & the monitor is damaged & needs to be replaced. Also, it might be because of a damaged VGA socket. Check the VGA socket for broken or bent pins.

Imy 15-pin vga port connecting to the monitor has 3


I am sorry but there is no way to replace just the three broken pins. You can replace the entire vga plug but it requires stripping down each individual wire and soildering a new one on. You can pick up a 15 inche monitor for next to nothing. Try ebay.com you can get a nice flatscreen for a good price. I am sorry.I wish you all the luck in the world.

Adapter? your monitor uses the same cord that you plug your computer in, these cords are all over the place and easy to find.
