Viewsonic PL2230WDB 2200W Shuts off after 5 seconds

\015 I have a Viewsonic 2200W 22'' wide-format LCD computer monitor that has recently starting shutting itself off after 5 seconds or so. If you hit the power button again it will turn on but, for only about 5 seconds and goes black again. I'm not a technician in the least but, i opened it up anyway and did not see anything out of the ordinary. Nothing looked burnt, no loose wires. not sure if it's hardware or software. Can anyone help out?\015

Answers :
