Question about ViewSonic VX922 19" Monitor Flat Panel
When I plug in my Viewsonic VX922 I get a blinking LED light. sometimes it will stay green a little bit and i might get a flicker of light on my monitor. I got it to work once before by wiggling the cord in back but not since then and I don't want to have to 'get lucky' to get it to work. When my roomies tried it on their computers they had absolutely no problem getting it to work at all. We have the same video card so that ruled that out as a possible problem. (mine is newer then theirs)
You guys......you don't have a software (driver, refresh rate, etc.) problem. When you first power up the monitor, do you get any display at all (ex, "analog input" or "No input signal")? Of course not - that's because you have a hardware problem with the monitor. Go here and watch the youtube video on how to take apart your monitor and find and replace the "domed" capacitors that have blown:
Fortunately I only had 1 ($1.76 at Radio Shack). I replaced it in less than 30 minutes and my monitor showed "no input signal" upon powerup as expected because I wasn't connected to my pc which is full of all kinds of drivers and refresh settings, etc.

It sounds like you r issues are the same as mine with the VX922. It will come on if it has not been on for a while. Then it will either go blank with the led flashing or if you reboot it it will just flash the LED and no picture. I have sent it back to Viewsonic for warranty repair (they have 3 year warranty on them). So I will see what happens when I get it back or they replace it. Sounds like the problems are just now popping up on these units. I actua;;y hope they replace it with a widescreen LCD since I now use a 24" Widescreen Dell and I love it. Widescreen is here to stay!

My vx922 has a problem running at 75 hz(1024x768) Will change ok but upon reboot will get black screen. To solve I booted in safe mode and installed refreshlock.Lock your refresh rate at 60hz and set it to load with windows.It will boot to black screen again but as soon as refrshlock has loaded your sceen will appear.

When it have this kind of error is a problem of the powerboard.
Anyway you must open it and look at the all capacitors and if are them inflated, if them are inflated must change them.
But can be a problem with inverters... control the transistors - MOSFET on the powerboard.

It's a problem with a power board or inverter inside. This can be repaired, mine was sent away today. If your monitors are no longer under warranty, you'll have to pay for it yourself. Ring Viewsonic in your area and ask for your nearest repair shop.

I also have the vx922 and the same thing at the 2 year mark all of a sudden I got the same thing. I am also unable to ever go back to 75mhz refresh rate I have to be at 60 or it will never EVER get picture. I will never buy another viewsonic in my life. I get it to work last night only by switching computers. The power plug deal works sometimes but not always. I am also unable to go into any video game at all because it will blink and it will go into a never ending loop of blinking led... Viewsonic FAILS!!!!!!!

I just started to get this problem now, the best way to fix it seems to be to just unplug it when it is flashing and plug it back in.

I had the same problem. Fixed with refreshlock for now. I am hoping viewsonic to give a explanation to this problem.

I have the same problem. I can reproduce it with 2 different PCs, one using each input on the VX922. In the manual and on the Viewsonic website there is no mention of what a flashing green light means. I've reinstalled the drivers...

Same problem with the VX922. Started suddenly after a year of use. Now I fight with it every day. The only way it works properly (and not always then) is if I turn the monitor off before shutting down the computer and when booting up let the computer get to the login screen (which I detect from the sound) before turning on the monitor.
