Question about Sony SDM-HS75/B 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Two light lines have just appeared

I have had this monitor for about 18 months and has been fine up until last night. I only just noticed, but near the top of the screen there is a thin light-coloured line that sort of gradiates (i.e. doesn't go across the whole screen) and it appears to get brighter near the middle and then fades away at the sides. There also appears to be another line above and parallel to it but much much fainter. Any ideas? Thank you

Re: Two light lines have just appeared

Your driver transistors are failing on those "Rows" of Pixels.. a common problem .. you could try "Pixel Reviver" software from here see if that helps.. but it possibly is on the way out sorry..

Flat monitors work on a grid method, if one of the grid is failing it creates a horizontal or verical line. its not something you can fix, so send it back.

Colored vertical lines on monitor

Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

Lock/unlock symbol appears in the middle of the screen

5-22-09 Same problem last month. I had the problem a year ago for a month, then it stopped, reappearing this last month. Last week, I finally called support...I was accidentally transferred to a Dell "internal" technical support department...happily a very diligent technician spent a bit of time with me for free...for same problem, even though he confirmed I was over a year past all warranties. He confirmed this was a monitor problem (not virus, malware, etc.). He also confirmed their standard "guidance"/solution for this monitor issue (if under warrantee) is to replace the monitor (i.e. not attempt to fix it). New monitor needed. But problem again gone for last 10 days. So, when fully irritated, buy new monitor.

Envision EN7410e monitor

Just fixed mine. Maybe it's a few years late. Hope you guys still have the display. It's the power supply board. I've just replaced 4 bulge capacitors near one edge of the PS. They are 2x1000uF 10V, 1x470uF 25V & 1x470 10V. I salvaged my parts from an old CRT monitor. Hey you can go green with your repairs too!

Disconnect the monitor from the computer and turn the monitor on

Monitor won't work

Try adjusting the video connection on the back of the monitor and kinda wiggle it from side to side to see if there's a loose connection. One other thing to check (In case it's a newer LCD) is that the video isn't switched to DVI (It should be automatic, but it can't hurt to take note of this)
