Sounds like a main board fault. Power supply is working, but the start voltage, that should come from the main board after power board ON, do not come now. Check for the reason. In most cases, the fault should be with main board; and troubleshooting to this board is somewhat skilled work. It will be best to contact the authorized service centre for Sony in this case, because, if power board is irreparable, and need replacement, you can't get it from open electronic spare part market. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Hello i have a 19 inch LG M197 WDP monitor/tv, when i switch it on the screen is white with a little gray bock that flashes and slowly moves across the top of the screen reading v3.02.0 which i presume is...

I also had an LG M197WDP tv/Monitor with the same problem. It comes straight on when plugged in, but with the blank screen and scrolling version number across the top.
The solution:
1. Use the remote control (check batteries first)
2. Point at the working TV and press either MENU or EXIT
3. Static should be seen on the screen.
4. Switch to standby using the remote, by preesing POWER button.
5. Switch back on using the POWER button.
All should then be working normally

I have the same problem and called fitnessquest. They said the monitor is probably bad and they don't have any in stock because it is being discontinued. The customer service person told me to buy a used bike somewhere and use the monitor from it. Not alot of help.

Sounds like a Philips. Had same problem.

None of the buttons on the remote will work!!! dmr ex95v

Try unplugging the dvd player for 30 seconds. Try to turn unit on a couple of times without power (discharges capacitors). Plug it back up and see if that works. It's a shot in the dark, but worth trying.

Is the remote the original remote for the unit? Could try reprogramming for dvd player if it's a universal remote.
