Hey everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on my issue.

I have a viewsonic VX922 LCD (19"). It wont work properly.

The yellow power light is flashing on and off, slowly. At the same time the monitor screen or backlight (nothing visable except a slight bit of light, no colour) seems to flash on/off very briefly(split second - can only see this up close).

It only does the above when it is plugged into a source, its like its set to the wrong resolution.

If i unplug/deactivate the source it displays "no signal" so the screen works fine. Also the backlight lights up the "no signal" fine.


Its like when you change resolution on your display it turns off then on, except on this it isnt coming back on.


I have tried this on a different computer and during boot. I ask this because it is out of warrenty and the screen seems to be functioning fine apart from this issue.

Previously it rarely had this issue, it just became more and more regular and now it will not turn on properly.


Any help would be greatly apreactiated =)

Sounds like you might have some faulty capacitors on the board... http://www.aplusperfect.com/articles/lcd_capacitor_repair might help if you're not afraid of a soldering iron? I've had a few LCDs at the office do the same sort of thing.
