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

1 Answer

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.

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!
