Question about Soyo DYLM1798 Monitor
I have a Soyo Topaz S monitor. It seems to work fine unless I let the computer sit for a while. After some time the monitor will go black and display a "signal out of range" message. Once this happens I can't do anything to get the monitor to work unless I shut off the computer and reboot. Any idea what can be causing this and how to fix?
Hi, these monitors are dropping like flys and it's due to power supply problems. There is a power supply that needs to supply 5v, 12v, 24v. The 5v and 12v is for the logic boards and the 24v is for the back light. On other boards people have tried to repair the supplies with no luck (same here).
The best fix is to purchase two power bricks off of ebay. Get one that supply 5v 12v that are used forexternal hard drive enclosures and get one 24v that is used for mac g4 laptops. Both can be had for < $10. Then you will have to replace the internal power supply with these. This is not for the beginner, but if you have any experience with soldering and wiring you should be able to do it. You will have to tap into the 12,5 volt wires, I used the PC style power 4 pin connections and attached the other end to the power supply. You will also have to do this for the 24 v lines. A bit of cutting / stripping, soldering and getting the AC to both will do the job.
The only thing that this will not do is shut of the 24 v supply during idle. Best this is to remove power from the monitor when not in use. This should fix an no / power / on then off / problems with this monitor.
Total time is probably about 2 hours and tools needed are the replacement power bricks, cutters, soldering iron, solder, electrical tape, screw driver... etc
