Having problems with your ViewSonic VG900b 19" LCD Monitor ?

Monitor displays then shuts off

\015 Viewsonic VG 900B Monitor displays desktop then the colors of image on desktop begin to waver and then monitor goes black after +/-5 seconds. The monitor is a hand-me-down that was broken when i got it. I have the same problem as the original owner so it is not CPU related. Power light remains on. Volt meter shows variance in DC of 9.8 - 12 V at power supply. Is this a normal range for the viewsonic transformer? No boards show burn marks, no capacators are popped. About half show retained voltage, the others show zero. Are there any other tests i can perform on the boards? How can i test the bulb? I am a residential electrician not an electronics tech so i am at the limit of my knowledge.\015
