Question about Sony SDM-HS95 19" LCD Monitor

Open Question

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.

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.

Hi, I turned my computer and monitor off as I normally do last night and when I came downstairs this morning to turn my computer and monitor on, my monitor didn't turn on. I pressed the power button on...

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!

Make sure that your computer isn't going into Standby or Hibernate mode. You can test this by briefly pressing the power button and wait to see if the screen comes back on.

Monitor remains black when on

The monitor should come when the power button is pressed once - period. If not, and it continues to happen when connected to another PC, then the hardware (internal electronic part/s) is having trouble powering up the panel/ccds and it should be replaced/serviced according to the terms of the warranty. I suggest to bring the unit to an authorized service center to properly diagnose & fix it. regards

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.

Screen goes blank also.

I too have an LCD Xerox - it worked fine for a while, then kept going blank and going onto standby. Unplugging and reconnecting from both pc and power seems to reset it. It hadn't happened for months but started again the other night when it occurred to me that I had just downloaded MS security updates - I've removed the ones that I downloaded just before it started happening again and the problem seems to be solved. Hope this helps someone.
