Question about ViewSonic VX924 19" LCD Monitor

6 Answers

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

Could you please helm me? We had the ViewSonic flat monitor for about 2 years. We shut the computer+ monitor at night by shutting off the computer via shut down on the screen and then turn off the surge protector, that shuts monitor and all. We don't shut the monitor itself because it is difficult for my husband who can't fully use his hands. When I turn on the computer in the morning, the monitor screen flashes an image for a split second and then goes blank. I noticed that the green LED power button on the monitor keeps flashing as the monitor is black. I saw someone else posted exactly the same issue on another message board !!!! So, I am not alone!! But, unfortunately there were no answer!! I press the keys, I move my mouse and eventually the monitor wakes up and stays awake, but it takes me 10 min!!! to wake it up... and I don't really know yet what keys I press and how long do I press them to wake the monitor up and I am tired to do that every morning!!! HELP!!!

    I am having the same problem with the ViewSonic VX924 monitor which I've had for about 2 years now. It consistently keeps flashing along with the green LED power button, and it keeps getting worse. I thought it mite of been my computer but my brother has the same monitor as i do, so I try out my monitor on his computer and it still continues to keep flashing.

    I also have the same problem with my Viewsonic VX924 monitor. I purchased it new almost two years ago, and last week I started having problems with it. Specifically, I noticed that sometimes when I turned on the computer, or if I have to reboot the computer, the monitor will not turn on. Instead, the screen will remain black, while I see a "flickering" of light just around the screen perimeter. At the same time, the green power light which is normally constantly on when the power is on, blinks. The only way I can get the monitor to work when this happens, is to turn the power off and wait between 15 to 30 minutes before turning it on again. This problem is becoming more frequent. I called Viewsonic and they claim that they have never heard of this problem before. Has anybody else spoken with representatives of Viewsonic about this?

    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.

I have the same problem, my viewsonic lcd is also 2 years old, hmmm...then maybe "the" 2 years do something to them since everyone else exp the same prob after 2 yrs.

but, i find a "not so smart" solution, my lcd will turn back on whenever i unplug the power cable and then plug it back in, (won't turn on if u only press the power button)

so what i did was bought an electric switch (on-off) in the edge of my lcd's power cable, so whenever it goes blank, i can easily and quickly cut the electricity without having to bother unplugging and plug back the power cable.

hope it works for u guys

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..

Have a VX924, same problems. Opened it up. A few of the electrolytic caps where puffed up (like Jiffy Pop almost done) As a precaution, I replaced all 6 of electrolytics (with top quality Panasonic caps). No luck. The Bridge Rectifier was O.K. And the diodes D110 & D320 checked out OK (had to de-solder one side of diode & lift from PCB to do test) For a SWAG, I'm ordering a replacement power MOSFET (Q320), and equivalents to the Siemens BCX42 for Q6, Q7, Q8, and Q9. If it works you'll hear from me.

I have this problem with my monitor VX924. I have found it best to push the power on button on the monitor just as the pc boots up but if I miss-time this I am left with a blank screen as windows boots up normally. My monitor is just over two years old but I have had the problem for about three months now. As the problem has got worse, I have contacted Viewsonic as it has a three year guarantee. The representive also sounded surprised at this fault and asked me to try it on another pc . This confirmed the fault and also the cheap lcd monitor from the other pc worked ok on my pc. Viewsonic have agreed to collect and exchange with a replacement which I am pleased about. I think really there may be a cause for a re-call anyway, I do not think people should be taking them to bits themselves this early on.

Whe you refer to the Power Supply, do you mean the power supply for the monitor or the PC? Just want to be sure I understand the resolution. What type of shop would i use for this repair?

My monitor is getting off

I have a similar issue. A search at Tomshardware web site suggests that faulty capacitors are the issue and that this is a widespread problem certainly with the VX922. Several guys on the Tomshardware post claimed that replacing the capacitors solved the problem (their units were out of warranty anyway).

ViewSonic 19" flat screen monitor goes black - intermittently

There could be a problem with your display card settings or the display card itself. If you are using Windows operating system, make sure that you have the monitor driver installed for that specific monitor. This is to ensure that Windows only allows settings for which your particular monitor was designed.
Let me know if I can assist you any further regarding this.

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.
