Question about Sony SDM S81 18 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor powers briefly then goes blank

I have had the monitor for several years with no problems then all of a sudden when I turn the screen on, I see whatever is the input for a flash of a second then... blank. Its almost as if it just has power for a second. The little green light for the button stays green. I'm not sure if its something serious.

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.

VX37L Screen Suddenly Went Blank, Now No Image, Sound Only on Cable Input, VIZIO Logo Lights Up


Hello,
turn on the set, grab a bright flash light and dim the lights in the room. Shine the flash light on the screen, if you see a faint picture on the screen, you are dealing with a backlight problem. There are several things that can cause this. One, a bad backlight inverter, two, faulty 24vdc power supply, three, bad main board, or a bad faulty backlamp.

Since you have tried another monitor with your computer, then we can only assume that your LCD monitor had gone bad.
If the light is green but you can't see anything on the screen, then most likely the backlight has gone bad. Unless you want to take the monitor apart, I would suggest buying a new monitor.

No DVi input, then computer goes to sleep


Hi publicworker,

I had a similar problem whereas my monitor went to sleep mode after a few minutes. I'm running an HP LP 2065 in dual mode with another HP flat screen. However, I did resolve the issue after resetting the output settings.

How to do that:
  • right mouse click on the desktop
  • select graphic options
  • output to
  • extended desktop
Maybe some changings/modification will help you too.

Sounds like you've done all the trouble shooting. If you just need that extra nudge, I would agree... it sounds like you'll be needing to shop for a new monitor.

Blinking On/Off.. seems to be a common problem.


I just replaced ALL of the Electrolytic Capacitors (6 in all) on my bad VX924 P/S, and it did not help. Several of the old caps were puffed-up/burst. I am ordering a new power MOSFET, Q320, if successful I'll be back in touch.

Viewsonic Monitor problem, blinking LED light, no picture.


you guys......you don't have a software (driver, refresh rate, etc.) problem. When you first power up the monitor, do you get any display at all (ex, "analog input" or "No input signal")? Of course not - that's because you have a hardware problem with the monitor. Go here and watch the youtube video on how to take apart your monitor and find and replace the "domed" capacitors that have blown:

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/247964-33-viewsonic-vx922-monitor-black-screen-green-power-light-flashes

Fortunately I only had 1 ($1.76 at Radio Shack). I replaced it in less than 30 minutes and my monitor showed "no input signal" upon powerup as expected because I wasn't connected to my pc which is full of all kinds of drivers and refresh settings, etc.

Problem when turning monitor off


mcdevito75 here LCD, or liquid Crystal display, chances are the crackling is the inside liquid display trying to capture the in comming electricity to make a display picture. Remember even an LCD is nothing more than a light bulb, a very intricate light bulb but a light bulb, and you have light bulbs burn out when you put them on and almost never as the are on burning. Turning the monitor itself off won"t really save electricity or the monitor itself as, when you shut down the computer from Start (left side of screen) the monitors screen saver comes on for 10--20 minutes then goes off, at this point the electricity is at the monitors on/off switch and not going thru the monitor at all. If you turn the monitor off at it"s on/off switch, the sudden jump of electricity to the monitor from it"s on/off switch could hurt it, or even the switch. I have a friend who turns off the monitor also and that friend had a bad monitor in 3 years. I never turn my monitor off just the computer itself. I'd speak with a Radio Shack, Staples, Best Buy ETC. for more advise. Me I;d say leave the monitor on. Hope this helps.
