Having problems with your ViewSonic VA721 17" LCD Monitor ?

My monitor isn't showing a picture properly. It is on and working because I can see the picture very dimly and the green power light is on. The frame around the screen was recently damaged - the screen worked fine before this. Could an impact on the screen (although not seeming to damage the screen itself) have stopped it from displaying properly? Is there anything I can do to fix it?


Answers :

I'm assuming you already tried the brightness adjustment.

From your description, the LCD screen itself seems to be intact. The problem seems to be backlighting which could very well have been damaged by a perimeter impact.

If it's still under warranty, contact the manufacturer. Tell them it just stopped working. Don't elaborate on the details.

If not, find an accredited computer repair shop. It's not a big deal to fix as long as the fix is performed by a trained professional.

Sorry, I wish there was a magic button to push.

Best regards,
Mike

My screen in my dell 1525 laptop died. I bought another one from dell. After installation the screen seemed to work great. After 4 or 5 min the screen goes blank. I use vista home. Could it be a driver? Would the vista install disk have that driver on it? An external monitor worked fine. That's a different port though. I ordered the following: XU 106 Liquid Crystal Display 15.4WXGA,Video Elec. Stds. Assoc.,Samsung Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

My toshiba Satellite P35-S609 started not charging. The charge connector seemed not working.
