Well, open it up and look for the capacitors voltage (example 1000uf 16v). You can get it in any of your local electronic repair shop or radio shack.

1. If under warranty, take it to the service center immdtly.
2. The display cable might be loose plug it up.
3. Your system might not be giving signal to the display unit. Is the system running, Listen for a beep when u turn on the system. If there is a beep the System Ok for display or the problem might lies in the Tower itself.

SOURCE: No input signal, go to power save sony sdm-hs93

I f you see the message on the screen indicating 'NO INPUR SIGNAL', you need to check the VGA cable and both ends of the connectors also. Try this monitor with other PC also.

This SDM-HS73/93 have common problem: bad backlight assemblies due to poor workmanship in sodlering works, see my pictures below. You should also inspect the caps. This is not recommend for DIY.

tlnwiayqydee, In terms of lcd monitor age, unit is VERY OLD. Cold cathode fluorescent lamps will need to be changed for new ones. Very hard to do for consumer/user!!! Best if you trade-in for new unit. Did you even look at the "date of manufacture" on back of unit? Look here for lamp information: and and and You will need to also visit YOUTUBE for video clips of units being repaired. 12fixlouie

It may have bad lamp assemblies, you need the inverter tester lamp to verify. See my pictures here:

This is common problem with the 17" version also.

It was working fine yesterday. Today is states VGA no signal. What is the problem.

A number of things can cause "No Signal" on a monitor

1) Check the cable between the monitor and PC is properly connected
2) If the PC has more than one display port try changing the display port the monitor is plugged into
3) Try an alternative cable between the monitor and the PC
4) Check that the correct input is selected on the monitor

Screen goes blank after 3/4 seconds Monitor approx.1 year old

I can confirm the number 3 solution. I have fixed a bunch of these now.
Replace capacitor C202, 680uf 25V. It is usually visibly damaged. It should be a low impedance type, often known as "suitable for switch mode power supply".Even yesterday.

Heard pop sound, then no power

Sounds like your monitor just fried itself.
Since monitors are hazardous, tricky to fix, and are quickly outdated within a year, by a monitor with a bigger size and resolution.

To answer your question: Your monitor is bricked, and will need to be replaced with a new monitor.

Maybe they put more volts on it, because of the cable length. About putting the manual on Fixya. I do not know how you would do that. I know that you can have a little more volts and be okay but not enough is bad. Are you sure it is the correct cord?
