Smyko, Sounds like a tired out old "switch-mode-power-supply"/ "inverter CCFL power-supply!!! May require unit to be REFURBISHED with upgraded power suppllies and if the LCD screen had been displaying an increasingly dimmer screen, it may also need new "cold cathode-fluorescent lamps" installed. A technician who knows all about LCD monitors and their backlight "ELECTRONIC BALLAST" circuits will need to evaluate it. Check with sony and find out if you can do a "cash+old unit swapout for a factory rebuilt (refurb) same model type. Before you do any of that have a look at youtube for longer video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" just FYI. You will then know and understand what is on the "OTHER SIDE" of what you been looking at for 5yrs!!! Yes, they are trying to experiment with WHITE led arrays that won"t fail for 10 years. Remember lcd Panels last 8 - 12 yrs. Hope this helps. Bye for now. 12fixlouie

Tv power cuts on power light lit no picture then Tv turns it self off, when picture appears there's waves in picture and tv turns itself back off and on with no picture just black scree


Hi Patty
If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
If your TV, flatscreen, or monitor is more than 5 years old it is more like to have suffered a component failure.
Take it to a repair shop.

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 screen of the monitor is blank. The green power light though is flashing. I can hear a faint ticking sound from within the monitor. It is as if the backlight has just failed. The monitor have been...


The flashing power button is an indication that the power supply has failed. There are parts called capacitors that filter the output power and when they short out the power supply can't start up correctly os it tried over and over, this make the power light flash each time it tries to start up. The monitor is easy to repair if you can do a little soldering. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to dis-assemble the unit and what to look for and replace to get it back going again. Te guide also has videos showing the steps.

Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you can't do the repair we offer a repair service, contact us for more details or if you have any questions.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Power Light Blinking & Black Screen


A blinking blue light indiactes that your power-inverter board is not putting out what it should. It needs an overhaul which may be a simple as changing out the capacitors on the boards.
It could go beyong that to transistors or even a bad bulb.
It will have to be opened up to do that.
A picture may show visual signs of damage. If you can take one and email it to me , I'll take a look.
