Question about Sony SDM-HS95 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor is Pink

Not sure what happened, but my 13 year old said the monitor wouldn't come on (appeared black) and she kept pressing the power button. When it finally came on, all the colors on the monitor appear "pinkish." I suspect that she wasn't pressing the power button, but may have been hitting the "menu" button instead. I checked out all the settings and don't see anything out of the ordinary that would make the colors appear pink. (We have two monitors and I compared the settings with the monitor that is working just fine and they are the same). Any idea why everything is pink?

SOURCE: Pop up menu won't go away.

If you can do the factory reset in the pop up menu, try it. You might have to try with another power supply, cord, or computer and check where the problem is.

SOURCE: Menu pop ups

It will only be one of 2 things, neither easy to correct I am affraid.

  1. The contacts behind the buttons have become faulty and are contacting as if they were being pressed by the buttons on the control panel. To check this is simple (well for me). You will need to open up the monitor and disconnect the front control panels cable. If the pop ups stop, theres your answer. It would then need to have another panel installed.
  2. The internal eeprom has an issue and is detecting that you are pressing the menu buttons and so displaying the menu. This could be a simple case of residue or even lint in the circuit that is giving an incorrect reading that is then translated incorrectly by the eeprom.

SOURCE: Blank Screen, Flashing orange power light...

1st Idea - Let's take a look under the cover. I'm not sure how tech savvy you are, but I'm sure you're pretty good if you have a soldering iron. Once inside locate the power supply section. See if you see any blown capacitors on it or any other boards. One obvious way is to see if they are bad is if they have bulging up tops. There could be some weak or bad ones that aren't popped up, but let's start from there. If there are any bad caps, they are dirt cheap price wise at an electronics shop. Keep me posted and let em know what you find. - Scotty

SOURCE: My monitor turns on but then goes black after

It could also just be the button is faulty... but a 6 year monitor is going to start throwing more and more problems at you.

Go to and treat yourself to a nice new monitor - they are very cheap these days.

Gateway FPD 1730 (mfg June 2004) On start-up, monitor flashes bios screen for less than half a second, then flashes the Windows XP logo for less than half a second and then stays black, no image. No...

All support is finished for XP years ago. The system is 13 years old and well past it expected life. Average is 8 to 10 years on a shop bought unit like Gateway, 12 years on a custom build.

I am thinking you probably have a dry joint on the board behind the switch as holding the switch makes the monitor work.

My advice though is a new computer running Windows 10, technology moves on in hardware and software.

You need your monitor repaired or replaced.
Unlike a computer, there is not much troubleshooting beyond making sure it is plugged into a live outlet and turned on which you did already.
Good luck!

Hi! I believe that the monitor has come to its end. 6 years is quite long for a monitor. You may have it repaired for there may be blown capacitors that needs replacement but a new monitor will be a great idea. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

No picture on monitor 997M

One reason that this is happening could be that it is on Power saving mode. This happens when the LCD monitor detecs an incorrect timing then thats the time that the LCD goes blank and the power botton starts to blink.

what you need to do is to turn the computer off. Unplug cables attach to the LCD make sure it is also off, once done press the power botton for a couple of 30secs to a minute and then release. After doing so re-connect all the cables and make sure that both ends is tight and secure once everything is ok turn the computer on same with the monitor to check if it solves the problem.
