Question about ViewSonic VA720 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
This is a very common problem. Theres a guy on ebay that will fix it for you for 24 bucks plus 5 bucks shipping. When you open the monitor, on the back panel there are 2 boards. One is a power supply board, the other is the interlogic board. The power supply board is where the problem is. I do not know the exact component that needs replacing as I did not test this yet. I do not have the proper test equipment. For 24 bucks, I'm just gonna let the ebay guy repair it. I will report my results here when I get the board back. I'm also gonna mark the components so I know what they replaced.

Hello, First time poster, I have the same problem with my Acer AL 1916. It works fine on my second computer but when I plug it in to the Acer tower that came with the Monitor, Acer logo comes on then it goes into a standby mode with the green power button flashing. All the cables r ok and it runs a crt monitor i have as a spare, any tips would be helpful

Hi, It's either the LCD monitor is not receiving video signal from the PC or something is wrong with the input circuitry of the monitor. 1. If it is the PC, it could be anything from the video card, memory or something else; 2. If it is the monitor, you have to open it up and diagnose the problem. This would probably require component level repair. You have to be familiar with the use of a soldering iron, a VOM and circuit analysis to be able to do a DIY. If you can borrow or have access to a known good 2nd monitor you can confirm which one is the issue, PC or monitor. Hope this works out for you. Pls post again how things turn up that we can further resolve the problem. Good luck and kind regards.
