Well, it rather sounds to me like it is going bad.

I had a lovely 2 year old Viewsonic CRT that just wouldn't display at all one day.

From reports elsewhere, it sounds like Viewsonic just isn't producing the quality of equipment it once did.

Just to check, have you tried a different power cord or outlet?

Does it have twin switchable inputs? ...

Y'know - like a DVI input and an HDMI input. The sort of arrangement where you might have a PC connected to one input and a Console connected to the other?

If it does I'll bet the monitor input switch has gone - the little button on the monitor fascia where you select the input. If you've got the second input, try that one instead.
