Question about Sony CPD G500 21" CRT Monitor
I came across several of these Sony G500 21" crts. They had the g2 brightness problem. I fixed three of them using a special cable and windas program. A fourth one does nothing, and a fifth one has a broken power button. How hard is it to switch these power buttons and get one good monitor? I am already familiar with taking the back off. I am not sure if the front must come off to get to the switch, or if I must remove parts internally to get there. The broken button feels limp. The other button is good. While we are at it, if the fourth moniter does nothing at all when turned on,(no power light even) is there a fuse somewhere that needs replaced? Maybe that could be saved. I almost threw them all out, but I have fixed a few of them and they look great. A friend mentioned something about a charge, or a capasitor that can potentially kill you. Is there danger? The two monitors I need to work on have not been plugged in for more than 2 months. Thanks for your time!
Just take the PCB out of the unit, if its a mechanical switch just hit it and leave it on and reassemble, if its a push button switch just drill a hole next to the switch and use a non metalic object to turn the unit on :-)
