Welcome to Fixya. As you describe the issue with your monitor it seems that the LCD is ok. Backlight is ok. However, The control board is bad. The control board is the IC that is at the back of the buttons on your LCD it is not responsive. To be able to fix this issue you need to have it checked for possible repair or replacement. You can check the warranty of the monitor so that the repair will be free of charge.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

No input signal, go to power save sony sdm-hs93

I f you see the message on the screen indicating 'NO INPUR SIGNAL', you need to check the VGA cable and both ends of the connectors also. Try this monitor with other PC also.

This SDM-HS73/93 have common problem: bad backlight assemblies due to poor workmanship in sodlering works, see my pictures below. You should also inspect the caps. This is not recommend for DIY.

My SOny SDM-S204 has no green in the computer display however, the monitor menu window is the correct color

Hello amellows, hi, check the video cable for loose connection, tighten the vga plug screw, try to wiggle the vga plug and see if there are changes on the display. As for the monitor menu, this is usually not affected, the colors are built in its onboard memory.

The screen will not come up but gave this message 'No input signal, go to power save

To isolate the problem, you need a friend with another computer since right now, we don't really know if the video section (or card) of the PC is at fault or the monitor.
You need to swap displays with someone so you can be certain what is actually not working.
The monitor is obviously capable of scanning inputs for a signal and not finding one.

A big white vertical static band appears as soon a i turn on the power

Some of the transistors or the connection to the panel inside the monitor are damaged. There is no absolute fix for this problem.

You can try pushing on the bezel (NOT ON THE SCREEN) of the monitor at the edge of the screen directly at the lines and you may be able to push the connection back together well enough that the line goes away, but usually in desktop monitors the bezel is too rigid to allow you to put any pressure on the connections at the back of the LCD panel.

SDM-P234/B Won't turn on

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot the monitor. NOTE: Since each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the display function after completing each step. 1. Download and install the latest video drivers for the video card. 2. Disconnect the computer and monitor from any surge protector or power strip and plug it directly into a known working wall outlet. NOTE: If the display returns after completing this step, the problem is isolated to the surge protector or power strip. 3. Ensure the monitor cables are connected correctly. 4. Perform a monitor self-test. 5. Adjust the monitor brightness and contrast levels. NOTE: Refer to the monitor manual or user guide for specific instructions on how to adjust the monitor brightness and contrast levels. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site. 6. If possible, connect and use the monitor with a different computer. NOTE: If the monitor functions properly, then the problem is isolated to the computer to which the monitor was originally connected. 7. Ensure that the keyboard and mouse are connected correctly. 8. Troubleshoot the computer display configurations in Safe Mode. 9. Remove any hardware that has been added to the computer. This includes any added memory, internal or external drives, and any type of adapter card (network, sound, video, USB, etc.) . Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
