Most likely the LCD panel is defective. Since this is an older product it more cost effective to purchase a newer product with more features and performance.

Test the switch for continuity in the open and closed position. Sometimes defective switches function mechanically but not electrically.

Hello Edelberto, this monitor does not disarm by the back to disarm the monitor, you have to remove, with great care, the front frame and there you will see the obstacles you have to remove the panel assembly and the platelets
I hope you can disarm it, comment the results

The problem is seems to be in power supply section. it may be need to repair by electronic technician, after using any monitor 5 to10 years there may be power section or lcd panel may be damage.

It is more likely to be a problem with your video card or on-board video. The only way to check is to connect the monitor to a laptop or another computer known to work.

no PC stated. no OS stated, so... weak answers... next.
actually only old windows did that!
once it needs to do that, that means the HDD shows errors.
they are not ever supposed to show errors
and in fact self repair them selves (2001 to now HDD)

what I do is shut the PC off.
them test the hDD as remote disk and run smart tests
boot the same PC with say linux demo disk (or usb stick)
and RUN SMART test.
if the fail the HDD is no good. hopeless cases.
the next actions is backup data.
the PC you have running silly old chkdsk
will actually damage more data doing that,
that is why w10 does not do that, it just tells you
smart fails on HDD0 or the like.

Just 2 steps of you have the linux media pre made.
as all techs do.
no PC stated and viewsonic is not a PC.
boot to linux, click try me, then run disktest
if it fails smart tests the hdd is bad.

so you want to open the va1928 case.
did you take off the stand and full remove the stand mount first.
and see screws hidden there, did you remove all screws on the back first?
the mount is steel and has 4 screws , off those first.
the book is free to read, users guide
page 10, says wall mount
this 1 page shows,
1: remove the snap off lastic panel first. that normally hide cables on rear, or just hides the steel mount.
and the magic 4 screws on it. then pry it.
steps 1 to 4, page 10


then remove all other screws you see and it comes apart.
this is close, nice clear english too. refreshing.


the pr ytools are; in order of best to worst are.
1: using std, cell phone pry tools.
2: using a Guitar pick,
3: wreck your CC , us an old useless credit card.
4: now use screwdriver an mangle the edges for "art"
5: claw hammer it? or a finely sharpened crow bar?

VW? what is this VW? prefix? VX or VG is common,
Im guessing VX
the manual has no word "dual" in it,so that is perplexing.
are you attempting dual displays on 1 PC, (unstated PC)
yes, /no
the VX has 3 inputs ports, dvi, vga and HDMI
i guess the VGA port fails.
why not use VGA to DVI adapter, even as a test. dirt cheap too.

why not test any monitor on 2 PC'S Not just 1.
then you learn if the monitor is good or bad, in one simple step.?
why ask this? you told me HDMI works so why not use HDMI.
or does the VGA port must work for other computers, we dont know how any one uses monitors, the possibles are endless.
even as service monitor, ok?

if the VGA fails on 2 PCs, (it spec resolution) the port is bad.
did you reset the monitor first, do the OSD reset stated in the manual. sure worth a shot that....
called RECALL in the manual please read the manual. page 15.

page 12
Color Adjust provides several color adjustment modes, including preset color
temperatures and a User Color mode which allows independent adjustment of
red (R), green (G), and blue (B). The factory setting for this product is 6500K
(6500 Kelvin). make sure not fiddled wrong?
