Flickering lines on Monitor

Hi, I got a problem with my Sony SDM-S81 TFT PC Monitor. The Picture that it shows has vertical, thin and flickering lines on specific colors on the screen. On some colors they're red, on others they're green. And sometimes my screen gets a really yellow tint, but then after a minute or so, the tint disappears again.
I checked the cable, but it's not the problem
-thanks for help

SOURCE: Black screen after 1/2 second power-up of Sony SDM-HS73

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.

Thanks,
Jake

SOURCE: a very thin vertical brun line in the middle

If it's a straight vertical or horizontal line always in the same place it's a panel issue which the average user even with repairing skills will not be able to reliably repair ,Sorry.

The Gateway FPD1960 is one of a few models that develop problems after a couple or more years of use. The repairs are fairly easy for the savvy technician. The power inverter board in the back of the monitor contains some capacitors, they may be 470 and 220 mfd or 680 mfd @ 25 volts, with a 105 deg. C temp rating. They go bad due to heat issues and the currents they have to filter. Replacement of the capacitors reliably restores operation.

Hi,

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.

Power light lights up but monitor dont come on


HI,Dear Friends..
Do you hear the hard drive working and see the LED flickering? As you can't see the screen to log on, Windows will stop at that point.


> If you have a spare PC monitor and VGA to VGA lead check it.
> And your keyboard working properly or not, if NUMLOCK light on it means your hard drive is OK.

> Your Monitor light on/off regular, or not? if light regular blink then power come but VGA section not working. So please contact Monitor Engineer.


Thanks...

The picture on my monitor needs to be adjusted. The vertical is to high.


Here is the link - http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=SDMHS73P - then select Operating Instructions. Looks like page 13 shows how to adjust vertical.

Had my monitor for four years, great performance


jlallen54, When lcd panel goes to a dark condition please shine a bright flashlight 1 inch from screen an tell me if screen data is still displayed during this "blackout" condition. It might be just a single (1) poor and now thermally intermittant solder connection on the printed circuit board inside the monitor. Do some reading first and then you will understand the problem that your monitor has. 12fixlouie

Black flickering line vertickally through monitor screen


It could be either of these:

You're monitor is dying and you need a replacement (Starlogic brand is notorious for dying early and giving poor performance)

You're graphics card is going out. If you have an extra monitor laying around, take out the Starlogic one and plug in the other to see if the same results occur, if not, it's the Starlogic monitor, if the problem still persists, you need a new graphics card or need to update your current drivers.

Hi, I have a problem with


The high voltage (HV) flyback transformer is a very possible cause of this. This could be repaired by a qualified technician, but the cost may not be worth it. New 17" monitors can be acquired for free sometimes (think craigslist)

Range Warning


first, 68.5 khz -85hz means horizontal raster frequency of source signal is at 68.5 kilohertz and repeats vertically at 85 hertz. (hertz means "cycles per second). the sony monitor cannot "read" the signal being sent from the pc. change the screen resolution to a lower number like 75 or 70 hertz vertical.
