Question about Sony SDM-S74 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor screens blanks a few seconds after I switch on computer

My monitor blanks after I switch on my computer, the green power light stays on, but the screen is blank. If I switch the monitor off and then on again it happens again, if I continue this process the monitor screen eventually works (most of the time). Is there a problem with the monitor or the computer?

Took the cable connecting the monitor to the computer and reversed it, this seems to have worked!

Hp flat panel monitor comes on shows logon and then blank screen


Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on?
If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps.
If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

Screen Goes Blank


Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

After monitor is turned on, it goes blank after a few seconds...


Sounds like the cable that connects the monitor to the computer hass a loose wire connection in it.
When it turns green, try flexing the cable near the connectors and see if the color changes on the monitor. I suspect that you have a wire in the cable that was not soldered properly by the manufacture.
If it changes color, I'd contact who you bought it from and have them replace it.
Hope thid helps. Bud
