Since the issue occurs seperately with 2 monitors, I'd be inclined to check out the video card. It may be overheating and shutting down. If you have someone you can have check the monitors on their system that would be best. It is rare for 2 monitors to display the same symptom, more often it is the video card itself.

    If the issue occurs on more than one system, then the fault appears to be with the monitors. If under warranty, contact viewsonic and see if you can RMA them if not under warranty, then you may check with a local TV repair (Many now repair monitors) and see if there is a cost effective fix

Blank screen

You probably got yourself a bad backlight or better yet a bad inverter board inside. A lot of experts found if you open this thing up and See any puffed up capacitors replace them as that could also cause this issue. But viewsonics had a issue with a bad capacitor on the power supply board.

ViewSonic VA720 Screen displays briefly then goes blank.

it looks like the Inverter's gone in your screen, it works like a starter in a florescent tube, it 'kick starts' your screen to come on. Turning it on/off many times eventually 'kick starts' your screen and makes it come on eventually.
