How do you connect a viewsonic vg15ob mo niter
Chances are you laptop has a vga input (looks like a blue trapazoid with lots of holes). Most monitor come with a vga cable. If this is the case you are good to go. If you dont have a cable for the monitor, you need to look on the back to identify the type of input(s) you have (DVI,VGA, or RCA). Then go to your local electronics store and tell the guy/girl you need a blank (monitor input TO blank (Laptop output) and you should be in business.
Let me know if this helps.
My monitor viewsonic VA1932 wm gets electric shock if I touch the VGA,DVI ports and the metal placed in the base
This is a hazard that you need to figure out. First thing is to check the power cables, Some of those monitors use a separate power brick and some dont. IF yours has a power brick, make sure it is made by viewsonic. It maybe a polarization issue with the wrong power unit. If the monitor plugs straight into the power cord and then into the outlet, check the cord ends to see if they are polarized ( one is bigger than the other spade) If they are different sizes where they plug into the wall, there is something more serious wrong inside the unit. You should use an electric meter to see how high the voltage is. IF it is more than 50 Volts you should stop using the unit. That model number is not listed on Viewsonics website. There is one that is close but they are not making it any longer.

Viewsonic VX2835wm monitor that powers up with a good screen for a couple of seconds and then goes blank. I replaced the power board and it still does the same thing. Could it be the on/off switch?
FIRST WE DO NORMAL AND LATER TRUE CAUSE.
gee that is normal on all monitors and by Energy Star laws too.
the monitor if the PC is dead or in speed mode, shuts of in 15 to 90 seconds, all do, every one. the monitor has self sleep, all do. everyone ever made did. even back to CRT days.
and the OSD button goes dead after. that. too. fooling the untrained.
here is the first tests, NO PC connected at all
power on see power light glow correct color
then see Viewsonic splash screen push the menu button now. quickly, if button dead hold it for 10 to 15 second to reverse the button lock now, see OSD works.
if you test the monitor on a good PC not in sleep mode the but working PC, your monitor is ok.
this monitor is very very old, 2004?
it has CCFL back lamps not LED<
and all fully used CCFL lamps are now no good, used 8yrs a day at 5years are no good. that is why we use LED back lamps now.
this is what they do: all do , used fully.
1: goEs dead forever, (vast did)
2: INTERMITTANT . (BINGO YOU ) OR INVERTER DEAD.
3: DIM BULBS (like me. lol)
4 TURN YELLOW FOR WHITE screens.
5: STROBEs. (FLASHes)
AND A VERY EXPENSIVE SURE, THAT. AND LABOR.

How to remove back panel of viewsonic va2046
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
Greetings Franco Dosil

I have a Viewsonic VE710b monitor. When I connect it to my computer and turn both on, the monitor shows a "No Signal" message. I've checked the connections and all are good. Is my monitor damaged?
First, I'm not a Viewsonic representative.
* Check your warranty. call for support.
*** Following for information only.***
* No signal means no usable signal for a specific input on the TV or monitor.
* If it's just a monitor and not a multi-function TV that also has a Computer to video input then you need to check the device that's hooked up to the monitor as single function monitor's usually only have one input.
* If this is a TV then you need to go to the TV menu and check the "Input Source" to make sure it's on the input plug your using. (I'm using HDMi-2 on my laptop to TV)
* If it's not on the correct input then there will be a different signal (DVD, VCR, etc.) or none at all (No Signal) if those units are turned off.
* Unplug all devices (to reset) and count to 10. Power up and perform set up to your existing configuration.
* Note; as of Jan 2018 most cable TV are not broadcasting in analog (chan 3) and must use a digital tuner to get signal. Some cable Co. provide converters (for a fee?)
* Check with your service provider for more information.
PS, If you do have a damaged input (or feed) then check your video device for alternative outputs; IE: RCA Vid-Right-Left audio, HDMI, Split video (Y-G-B), VGA, S-plug, etc.

My Viewsonic T-46 is stuck in scanning and repairing C drive on start. Can I stop or work around this?
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 errorsand 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 testsor 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 chkdskwill 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 disktestif it fails smart tests the hdd is bad.http://pcdied.com/linux.html
