Customer Question

I have a view sonic monitor VA2431wm. Was using it yesterday when we suddenly lost power due to a power pole falling over. Now, all it does is blink the blue light and flash view sonic off and on. I've unplugged it from the power,and the computer multiple times. My computer is fine (used my other monitor) do I fix my view sonic monitor?

Hi there,It is likely that the monitor's backlight has been damaged by a voltage surge, so it works briefly when turned on and then cuts out.If you have some electronic testing and repair equipment available, you could attempt to diagnose and repair the monitor yourself. Otherwise, it is usually more economical to replace rather than to repair these monitors.One other option to consider is if your insurance covers against this type of damage.
