Screen won't stay on

This is a common problem with LCD monitors after a few years of use. The capacitors in the power supply board start to fail and this prevents the monitor from starting up correctly. Sometimes you get a picture and then it goes black. On some units you can keep pressing the power button and after several power up cycles the monitor will work until you turn if off. These symptoms are all common with capacitor failure. The monitors are well out of warranty now so Viewsonic will not cover the repair cost. But the repair is very easy to do yourself. You just have to replace the 6 power filter capacitors on the power supply board. Here is a link to additional information on this repair.http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21_34&products_id=218I hope this helps, I have repaired over 30 of this model with the same issue.
