Question about Sony SDM-HS73P 17" LCD Monitor
I own a Sony LCD SDM-HS73 Monitor, its almost 4 years old. Never had any problems with it until now. When my computer has been turned off for awhile, and I turn it back on, the monitor green light comes on, but the screen is black. I have to uplug the monitor from the power supply, and when its plugged back in, everything is fine. So, I took it to a repair guy. He replaced the G board, and had the A board rebuilt. $195 later, I bring it home, and nothing has changed. I am going to do the flashlight test, but I am trying to find out if the "inverter" board is the G or A board, because I think this guy just ripped me off. Any help would be great. thanks, ann*e
It's funny when reading sweetanne post on her Sony LCD SDM-HS73 Monitor which I also have ,I could copy her word for word ( I own a Sony LCD SDM-HS73 Monitor, its almost 4 years old. Never had any problems with it until now. When my computer has been turned off for awhile, and I turn it back on, the monitor green light comes on, but the screen is black. I have to uplug the monitor from the power supply, and when its plugged back in, everything is fine. ) Only mine does come on but it takes anywhere up to 15 minutes to come on and I've noticed with the green power light on I cant press to shut off unless I'm shutting the computer off.. Sony was no help gave me a number to call so I called it and yes up to $200 to fix if they can so for the time I will just have to put up with this. :-(

Thanks for your response. I actually sent my monitor out to guy that does LCD repairs for cheap. He changed out the video board and did repairs similar to yours but still couldn't get the monitor to work. After some more testing, he found that one of the chips that contained Sony's proprietary firmware had gone bad and said there really was no way to replace the chip. It definitely seems like we had the same problem, so I thought this information may help. I'm sorry that you paid so much for repairs that didn't solve the problem.
