Question about Sony SDM-HS73P 17" LCD Monitor
So, lately my monitor has been blinking uncontrollably. The problem started about 6 months ago, and about after 10 minutes of blinking the monitor would finally work. Now, over the past week it continues to blink and I am unable to use my computer. I took the back cover off to look at the board, and it appears a few of the capacitors may have burnt out. C1, C23, and C25 appear burnt (black, brown in color) and the rest are all blue. I'm assuming this is the problem? If so, are they easily replaced? Where can I find them? I'd prefer not to order them online, I'd rather find them at a local store if possible. If I do replace them, is it as easy as pulling the bad ones out and sticking the new ones in? Or is there something special that needs to be done. Thoughts and/or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance....

Not the board, there is a thermal fuse under the lamp housing that has opened up, you need to order an upgrade thermal fuse link that will mount to the Lightengine side of the lamp housing, the clips are there, there is no sensor there.

This is a simple and common problem. The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked loose. I actually did a housecall on the exact same set with the exact same symptoms this morning! A good tech will resolder the pins of the vertical output IC and all other major solder joints on the main board and the set will play fine.

When a Sony does what you explain it usually only needs it's screen controls adjusted. This would be the first thing before replacing parts or any other trouble shooting, To do this you have to remove the speaker grill, there usually are two screws down low that are covered by plastic covers, once these are out the bottom pulls forward and slightly down. Then there will be another cover, remove that. Now you should see the inside of the TV. Near the front there will be a control ruffly the size of a pack of cigarettes and have six controls on it, Three are for focus and three for screens, Next find a video source that has no input, this simply means change to a input that has no signal, and gives you a black screen. Next simply turn the screens clockwise till a faint glow and retrace lines appear, then turn it back down till the color just disappears. Do this to all three, then you can re-glue them with fingernail polish if you want to.
Thats the simple way to set the levels on the CRT's, Sony's have a circuit that mutes the video until all the voltages are within a certain range, if the voltages are too far off it will give you the five blink error code, now if does not fix the problem there are other problems, This can be any thing from a weak CRT to a capacitor failing. And on a final note it is best to let the set run for at least 20 minute before doing this adjustment to let the voltages stabilize, and it is best to check it after another twenty minute to make sure it stayed

It seems there is power supply related issue like overheating, I suggest you to try again after keep the TV unplugged about 30 minutes.

It is available in Sony Accessories Store for $200 and replacement procedure is written in instruction manual of TV.
Always buy Sony original lamp for TV and avoid aftermarket / cheap lamp for TV safety.
