Question about Sony SDM-HS73P 17" LCD Monitor
My grandaughter has a black screen and green power light within about 1/2 second of powering on the SDM-HS73 monitor. She had a green screen with a loose cable to he PC and she tightened and checked cables. I also checked the cable and disconected power tro the monitor for 20 seconds. Picture is good for a moment whenever power is toggled. Monitor is about 4 to 5 years old. I checked screen saver (10 minutes and set for pipes). I updated default driver from CD. No luck. Did see a waiting icon for a moment when screen saver would have displayed and scrren saver was there on power toggle wiew (the viewing moment). Ran anti-virus also. Nothing bad is obvious at the PC. It seems to be a problem in the monitor itself, such as power save kicking in immediately.
Bratty, do you have a pic on which capacitor this is? Also where I can find a replacement one.
My monitor is doing the same thing, nice and bright for 1/2 a sec then goes super dull, you can barley see anything.

What if all the caps appear to be goo, no leak, no swelling?

Even after you replace the cap it still wont be fixed because the bad cap overpower the to transistors these also need to be replaced the number is something like c7506 they wont take more power for long so these will most likely all so be bad depending on manifacture date the transister part numbers do change.but are close to that. I repair these lcd problems alot in my computer shop.

I had the same problem, it was the capacitor in my power supply. Replaced the bulging capacitor and bingo, monitor is working great.
