Question about ViewSonic VX924 19" LCD Monitor
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 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.

I also I an issue with a Viewsonic VA720 monitor. Boot up computer and get a brief view of windows then off again. 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? Thank you Martin - Mass
