Question about Sony SDM-HS73P 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Constant white screen

Monitor used to work fine. Disconnected from tower, and reconnected later to another similar working box (which had a good working monitor already) and just got blank white screen. Screen flashes from black to white at post and operating system start up then stays white. Colors never appear and the Windows logo is never seen nor anything for that matter. Screen just stays at solid white after that. Cables seem to be good, and power light is green. Help! Thanks!

Input not supported

The repair shop set the PC video resolution to higher resolution to use with their monitor and did not put it back to the same resolution for your monitor which cannot handle the higher resolution. You need to lower the PC video resolution to the native reslution of your monitor which is 1280 x 1024 @60 Hz.

Hp vs17 has white screen at boot. I have eliminated the chord from the tower and the tower works fine. I have audio, no video. Only a white blank screen. It does not blink or flicker. It just stays white....

There are three choices here...bad screen, bad connection, or bad video card, if the card is integrated onto the motherboard, then that part of the motherboard could be bad. If you have access to another monitor or a TV with a vga input, try the computer with another monitor. If you get a signal on that other monitor then you know you either had a bad connection with the other monitor or you lost the screen on the old one. Go back and reseat your video connections with the computer off. Don't ever remove or move cables to the monitor and video with the computer running...the screen can suffer permanent damage. If there is no signal on any monitor, then either you have a bad vga cord or your video graphics card had died.

Dell E151FPb 15" LCD with power LED blinking.

The problem may be a loose connection. When I turn on my monitor, the green light blinks and a flickering white screen appears for a brief second every time. There must be a loose connection on the power board which may be causing this. The easiest solution is to tap at the back of the monitor. This will reconnect the loose end and the monitor will work fine until it gets disconnected again. I will open my monitor soon to find the real problem. But it will take some time to find it.

Hi, The part where you see some color bars and blinking green led is what we call MONITOR SELF TEST. A diagnostic pattern consisting of four colors (red, green, blue and white) appears, and the LED flashes slowly. this happens when signal cable from the monitor is disconnected from the tower and leaving the power chord for the monitor plugged in. If the monitor works properly on a different computer. then its a problem with the computer's video card sending out signal. im 85% sure that its a problem with your video card.
