Question about Sony HMD A400/L (Blue, Silver) 19 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

Sony hmd-a400 monitor

My Sony HMD-A400 monitor which is connected to my Sony Vaio computer has been acting weird for sometime now and I have to always leave it on. If I turn the monitor off for say 10 minutes or longer, this is when I have the problem. It turns on ok but has about 6 white lines that go from bottom left and angle up towards top right. They stay there for sometime and after it is on for say 5 minutes, everything is fine. But, if I don't wait for at least 30 minutes, when I try to get on the internet, only the monitor shuts completely off and the only way to make it come on is to unplug just the monitor for several seconds and plug back in. I may have to do this several times before it stays. It seems like it has to warm up before it will stay on.

Re: sony hmd-a400 monitor

Next time you get it running, right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look for your monitor on the 'Monitors' '+' sign and right click>delete. Also check 'Display adapter' see if the correct driver is displayed. Re- boot and let Windows re-install monitor driver(it should list it as 'Sony')

I hooked the sony hmda400 to a asus computer and cant get any sound from the monitor. Help!

This monitor doesn't have speakers. You need to use a separate audio connection - from the Line out of your Asus to the input of a separate audio amplifier.

My monitor doesn't have all the colors or the sizes

The problem is not your monitor, but most likely your video card in your tower, or possibly that you don't have the proper driver installed for your video card.
Most of the video problems are driver issues, so if you can't display all of your colors, check that first, and if you need help , re ask a question with the info from your video card!

You will need to buy a disc or download the driver itself. Then download driver and install it..
Then go to and download this program.
Now turn on phone, connect via usb cable, run program, sync phone to program and now you are ready to go.

LCD turns white.

probably failure in the LCD controller IC in the lcd controller board. that no signal was sent out to the lcd driver ic thus you could only see white display. A replacement of LCD panel is the best solution. best regards

follow the diagram, the base of the hor out should go to the secondary of the hor drive transformer, and going to the primary circuitry you should find a transistor, a small transistor, look for its collector and you should find a filter capacitor, may not be the same value but it is the filter capacitor.
