Re: SDM-P234/B Won't turn on

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot the monitor. NOTE: Since each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the display function after completing each step. 1. Download and install the latest video drivers for the video card. 2. Disconnect the computer and monitor from any surge protector or power strip and plug it directly into a known working wall outlet. NOTE: If the display returns after completing this step, the problem is isolated to the surge protector or power strip. 3. Ensure the monitor cables are connected correctly. 4. Perform a monitor self-test. 5. Adjust the monitor brightness and contrast levels. NOTE: Refer to the monitor manual or user guide for specific instructions on how to adjust the monitor brightness and contrast levels. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site. 6. If possible, connect and use the monitor with a different computer. NOTE: If the monitor functions properly, then the problem is isolated to the computer to which the monitor was originally connected. 7. Ensure that the keyboard and mouse are connected correctly. 8. Troubleshoot the computer display configurations in Safe Mode. 9. Remove any hardware that has been added to the computer. This includes any added memory, internal or external drives, and any type of adapter card (network, sound, video, USB, etc.) . Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Sony SDM HS73 ''turns off''

One thing I know for sure on this model HS73/HS93 is that the backlight assemblies failed due to poor soldering works. This may the problem with your monitor.

It is very time consuming repair works that I doubt very much if repair shop will do the work.

Monitor powers briefly then goes blank

Sounds like a Control board issue or a Power board issue... Might be blown Capacitors, in which case there is not enough power being supplied. Check to see if there are cheap parts on Ebay as replacements. If you don't want to go through the trouble sell the LCD itself for $150-250.

A big white vertical static band appears as soon a i turn on the power

Some of the transistors or the connection to the panel inside the monitor are damaged. There is no absolute fix for this problem.

You can try pushing on the bezel (NOT ON THE SCREEN) of the monitor at the edge of the screen directly at the lines and you may be able to push the connection back together well enough that the line goes away, but usually in desktop monitors the bezel is too rigid to allow you to put any pressure on the connections at the back of the LCD panel.
