Question about ViewSonic VX924 19" LCD Monitor

Monitor flashes image for split second then goes blank but green LED flashes as well

I have had the ViewSonic VX924 for about 1.5 years. Just this morning when I moved the mouse to wake up the monitor, the screen flashed an image for a split second and then went blank. However, I noticed that the green LED flashes as well. I have plugged in other computers to the monitor and all display the same result. They work fine on a different monitor. I have read in the manual a working that too high a resolution and refresh rate can "permanently damage" the monitor. Any help appreciated.

    Same Problem. I have a dual monitor setup (one 922 the other a 924). The 922 works fine with either cable through either display card port.
    If I press the number 2 button on the monitor the display shows the expected screen for about 1 sec then goes black again.

While the monitor is still powered on, but with the LED flashing, unplug the monitor from the PC. press the power button, and the monitor should go off, now plug the pc back into the monitor. Turn the monitor back on and it should work.

Occasionally this will not work for me, but if I repeat it it normally works

Hope this helps - my problem is intermitant so it may be different to what u guys have

After the monitor has been turned off, along with my PC, if I turn on the monitor at the same time that I turn on the PC it will go black, with a slight flickering, and the power button flashes on and off. I can't even turn off the monitor when it's started to do that. I power off the PC to get the power light back on on the monitor and can then power it off.
However, if I don't turn on the monitor until XP has had time to get to the full resolution login screen, which I can tell by the hard disk activity light on the PC, then when I turn on the mon it works fine. And doesn't flicker. This means I can't get to see the pre-boot screens and it's most annoying.

Monitor Goes black, or flickers on and off

The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

ViewSonic Monitor has trouble to wake up after been shut down.?

Well with this type of fault it is invairably a problem with the Power Supply, in the PSU Electrolytic capacitors dry out and often cause this type of exact problem... It is a relitively simple fix, by replacing the caps with new ones... Any good shop should be able to fix for a modest fee.. OR if ya know anyone handy with a soldering iron maybe they could do it for you there are generally about 4 - 6 to replace... in the PS section, just do them all to be safe..

ViewSonic Monitor has trouble to wake up after been shut down?

Ok sounds to me like a power supply problem.. this a a fairly common symptom. I suggest that as a temporary fix you set the monitor to NOT turn the power off to the monitor in sleep mode if possible, in your power settings for the monitor.
