HI, this unit will need the attention of a qualified Sony service tech. You hard Disk is corrupt. It is either the hard disk itself or, the internal connections that link the hard disk to the mother board.

In any case, it should eb sent to sony for the repair asap.

When I go on to Youtube.com and search a video to view, it wont play. Literally. All it will show is a black screen. I can still comment on it, it just wont let me watch any video on Youtube.


  • This means your version of flash player is out of date. Sometimes it won't tell you.
  • First go here
  • Scroll down and click here:

  • Download and install the new version. YouTube should work properly.
  • If not, that means your browser/Internet service provider isn't allowing it to work. Try using a different internet browser.
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good luck, Cooper. (Please give a thumbs up, I am doing this for a summer job!)

I have a hyundai monitor which keeps switching itself off Displays the computer screen then goes into energy saving mode after a second or so Help!


alastairhaig, Is unit 4 years old? Could be problem with units switch-mode-power-supply if same thing occurs when connected to fully functioning different pc that has all screen saver and power save features disabled. After screen goes "black" do you still see the WIN-desktop screen and icon's if you hold a bright flashlight at different angles about 1 inch from the screen? SEE = power supply in "partial shutdown" mode. NO SEE = smps in "full shutdown" mode. Do some reading in my fixya profile about "black screen of death" repairs. also read FIXYA profiles of "budmrtn" "buddymc" and other fine profiles of technicians here on fixya. You will truly be amazed when you visit YOUTUBE for video clips of owners/technicians who save their cold cathode fluorescent lamp, back-lit lcd monitors from the "trash-heap"!!! After you do your research please return here and rate this response and possibly do additional comment. 12fixlouie

What problem would make the screen go black with vertical rows of hash mark down each side of screen?


ael 16504, If unit performs in same manner when connected to a "Known-Good" pc, then unit may need to have the internal power supply board (SMPS/inverter) checked out by you or qualified monitor technician. What is "date of manufacture" and model number? Have you seen any repair videos at YOUTUBE yet??? Was monitor working good 24 hours ago? Will your pc perform perfectly with a different monitor connected to it? When very "strange" stuff starts to occur with CCFL lcd monitors, the very first place this tech will look is at the SMPS/INVERTER power supply board. Do your research here in the fixya profiles of "budmrtn" "buddymc" 12fixlouie"(me) and at YOUTUBE for video clips of monitor power supply board repair (bad capacitors)

My Dell Vostro 1500 does not turn on right now. Basically, it freezes after the Dell logo. Only plain black screen. And it stuck there forever. Anybody help please? Thanks!


leerobin

What happens it you press F8 or F12 when you turn on the computer do you get any different screen options.

Also to clarify is the screen staying on the Dell logo or is it going to a black screen.

Another thing to check does the computer still seen like it is booting up properly.

kdavey53, "switch-mode-power-supply" for X193W is probably in shutdown mode due to having detected a FAULT CONDITION with itself or another circuit. Black screen = partial shutdown?? Black and Blank screen = full shutdown??? Which is it? Are you going to repair unit or use warranty? Have you seen video clips at youtube for "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" dealing with the most common black screen problem with ALL BRANDS of lcd displays? FYI visit www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm or www.badcaps.net or try wikipedia and search "capacitor plague" !!! Read more of my responses to other BLACK/BLANK screen owners for more options that you may have open to you. If not inclined to DIY repair, then have deep pocket$$! Your best shot and what I would do is buy new AND repair X193W to keep as working spare unit. Might only cost $10 in parts on a DIY. But you will need to do the research and understand the problem that you monitor is having. Do you understand what makes your screen "light-up"? Have you any of the new style "curlie-Q screw-in energy saving CFL light bulbs? Same basic principle! Just implemented in different way to produce RAW WHITE LIGHTon reverse side of what you been looking at. Look see only FYI www.ccfldirect.com and then you will know. I'm lmistyrel on aim or 12fixlouie on fixya Hope this was of some use.

Screen Keeps turning off after about 1 second. I turn it on and can see the desktop for about a second then the screen shuts itself off. turn it on and it keeps going off.like everysecond or two..tried...


willie114, You have typical problem of lcd monitor failure. There is only one further test you can do. Reconnect H170L to an already fully booted pc with WIN-Desktop showing. then and only then turn on H170L. As soon as screen goes to BLACK, shine bright flashlight 1 -2 inches from screen at different angles. You may or may not see the desktop screen even though the screen is black. If desktop can be seen it only means that the power supply is still powering up the digital lcd driver board. The problem is that your long, thin, Cold-Cathode-Fluorescent-Tubes are not lighting up due to a problem with the Inverter Supply that feeds AC to power the lamps. The inverter gets DC from the Switch-Mode-Power-Supply. The technology your are dealing with is similar to the new energy saving curlieQ screw-in replacement light bulbs. Only your tubes are straight and hung left to right horizontally in back of the lcd and their power source is a bit simpler and called a converter. AC to AC. Get back to me and I will let you know of your options as a consumer/user whose screen has gone to BLACK. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com Bye for now
