Most likely the LCD panel is defective. Since this is an older product it more cost effective to purchase a newer product with more features and performance.

Have you tried another power cable? It could be a power supply problem. Too be honest, being a 15" crt monitor it would prob be cheaper to replace the whole unit than have it diagnosed and repaired

Sounds like that monitor has reached the end of the road. I would recommend purchasing another monitor, other than view sonic. Purchase a Dell..they are great!

On most lcd monitors the cost of the screen is usually close to the cost of the whole monitor, my feeling is if your monitor is under warranty then they will send you another monitor. If not then your going to need to search on Ebay, Google etc to see if you can find a damaged monitor with a good screen and have it cost less then the cost of a new one.

Viewsonic - it has horizontal line flash.. How to fix?


Open it up and look at the capacitors. The round "tin can" looking components. If the tops appear bulged, then replacing them may help. Check out the YouTube video... and web site...

Monitor with a blank screen


The monitor is about 2 years old, time to inspect the caps in the power supply first, look for caps with bulging top. The problem can also be in the inverter circuits, or bad lamps. See example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Probable source of the problem is the horizontal output (and high voltage) circuit although it can be killing the video earlier than that too. First step would be to dis- and reconnect the video cable to ensure it isn't a simple contact problem.
Second, using the brightness and contrast controls to see if anything is still visible. If you have a single horizontal line across the screen, then the problem is in the vertical deflection circuit instead.
If you have nothing, turn the monitor off, wait a few seconds and then back on. If you get a picture first then only a dot, its back to the horizontal circuit again. Try to note how it dies.
You may be able to somewhat diagnose the problem this way but that is a long way from a repair and with the cost of labor and possible unavailability of some parts, you should get an estimate before repairing it since it is possible that replacing it is cheaper. This is not really a DIY project unless you have technical background and a couple of test instruments.

Solid line completly across screen, monitor is brand new


Your comp's video card refresh rate (in Hertz, abbreviated Hz) may not be totally compatible with the monitor. Check the properties of your video card, and change the refresh rate (you may have to look around for it) to 60 Hz. This is a pretty standard refresh rate that works with just about every monitor. If it's already there, I'm afraid someone else will have to try and help!

Hope this helps, and please rate my answer, good OR bad.

Good luck!
