Question about Sony SDM-HS73P 17" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

My sony has an issue

When i touched my computer to come out of sleep mode my monitor had lines running down it, it is a 5 year old sonyt lcd, in addition to that i hit a reset button in the menu of the monitors controls and it expanded the viewing area past the limits of the monitor, meaning that i can move an icon so far to the side that i can never see it, and top aswell, so how do i adjust the height and width of the viewing area because the menu on this sony doesnt have a control to do that at all. how can i fix this problem?

    the lines have since gone away just in the time since i turned it on, and that is not the main issue it is just adjusting the viewing area, the height and width, because there is no menu for that in the on monitor buttons.

    i have the exact problem. Have reloaded drivers,

    tuned monitor. all looks ok untill i come out of

    sleep mode. If I restart it goes away. Sometimes

    it goes away by doing a refresh.

    Noise? I isolated cables and power cords.

    No matter what i do, it keeps coming back.

    usually last for 2 to 3 minutes each episode.

    Maybe this will clarify. The 865PE chipset doesn't

    use Intel's extreme graphics. suggest not using it.

    problem fixed by new graphics card.

    nothing wrong with Sony monitor.

How to Tell If A Computer Monitor Is Going Bad
Computer monitors are designed to work properly for years.
Whether it's from a defective part or power surge, they go bad eventually, and you'll probably know it when it happens.
Look for vertical or horizontal lines across your monitor screen that shouldn't be there.
Time how long it takes for your computer monitor to come out of sleep mode. It shouldn't take more than 5 or 10 seconds for the screen to be fully operational when taken out of sleep mode or turned on after being turned off. If the screen is not operating as quickly as it should, it could be a sign it's getting old.

HP W2007 + Xbox 360 = Constant Sleep Mode

the monitor is bad
if it will not power on,
or show NOSIG< with XBOX on then turned off the monitor must show NOSIG>
why not test the monitor on any pc made even laptops VGA jacks works, so that works, its not the monitor.
and bad xbox video caused. but is not it. as you said.
the menu needs sync lines active. to pops the OSD button menu.
so the monitor is bad.

or the cable.

what is w2007, lets see.?
its old. at 1680 x 1050 @ 60 Hz

this old monitor runs CCFL lamps.]
im shocked it glows at all up to now.
ever do flash light trick test?
see got data, but no back light, CFFL is dead.

HP W2007
users guide last page.
This HP product contains mercury in the fluorescent lamp
in the display LCD that might
require special handling at

that means CCFL died, also all do, soon.
(as short as 2 years, full time , they die. 20k hours)
out of your service manual it shows.
ccfl-wcj1avqu0msqxnqr1cdquwfl-1-0.jpg what any running pc connected the OSD menu most work
not in sleep mode.
if there is sinc, H/V pins active
that OSD must work or the blacklamp is dead
use flashlight see, there is data there, see?

Hotmcompaq 7020 monitor will often display the following when turned on... the 'title page' showing Compaq. Then a rectangle shows up that says "searching for analog signal" then few...

That is the OSD brain, inside said monitor
The On screen display , window.
push the menu key on said monitor, see that MENU now?
sure. that tells you the monitor is basically OK.
that message means the unstated PC, is not sending any video or sync signal (or its cable is bad or unplugged or loose)
or the funny timer is tripping.(out)

monitors evolved like 5 times from year 2000.
so first i carbon date yours, to see what you actually have.
FP7020 is not a TFT7020, got it.
i wish i could read the service tag on it so i can be accurate but i cant.
no matter both are now RETIRED. at HP (hp is compaq , a fact)
Zero support now... no books, no nutt'n!

the first monitors, had a timer inside, and a clock that had a auto sleep mode, inside it, yah. they did, and is a pain .

lacking the book , one cant know that can one.
seems its 2002 carbon dated. wow 15 years young , ouch

this is the year the VESA rules went in to effect.
long ago, and changed 4 more times. dig>?
found a 15 years old product sheet on this old display
shows"internal sleep timer" yup, I just knew it was there,....
first make sure its off. (this must be OFF)
if its on and the clock inside is set wrong, it will trip off , at odd times.

let me explain back in the dark ages of monitors.
they had many PC that had no sleep mode
so HP(old compaq) put a clock(time of day) and sleep timer in dislplay., (for US gov, energy STAR bs)
so what you do is first set the OSD clock to the correct time.
then in the same menu system turn off the magic clock.
magic is that only this old junk has this display

test the monitor on another pc to see if its monitor issues or not.

lets not say , the monitor , is ok, and its funny INANE sleep timer is shut off.

what next, well the PC is next.
but wait you never told what PC, ?
so it can be any of 10,000 different models , VGA cards, chips and OS.

endless possibles for 36 years of PC evolution.
hopeless on my end to speculate.
NOr did you say what OS you are running.+

All PCs shipped new have shipped with sleep turned on in windows
or is this running OS2 or LINUX.
click control panel
there click power settings
there, click custom settings and give it a name, and then pick
NO sleep, no Hibernate at any time.
then turn off screen savers if on. most are off default.

when the PC wants to sleep it stops the Sync lines on the VGA card
or GPU chip.
the monitor sees that and goes to sleep. all do.
if the card is bad, its bad.
if OS is corrupted reload it.
if the PC runs ok on other monitors you cable is bad.
if the cable is ok the and PC is ok, then the monitor is bad
simply move the monitor to other PC
simple move pC to other monitor, and 1/2 the possibles are now know... in 15 min work, about.

Monitor going to sleep

juanmgerman0, Connect SDM-X82 to known-good pc that has all sleep mode, power-save mode disabled. (turned-off) If unit still goes to black screen mode, then look at the "date of Manufacture" on rear of unit and let me know if you see "2002 -2004" as the year produced. Retrevo lists unit as "time to retire". Power supply may be going into shut-down mode having detected a problem with itself or the CCFL inverter circuit. 12fixlouie

No DVi input, then computer goes to sleep

Hi publicworker,

I had a similar problem whereas my monitor went to sleep mode after a few minutes. I'm running an HP LP 2065 in dual mode with another HP flat screen. However, I did resolve the issue after resetting the output settings.

How to do that:
  • right mouse click on the desktop
  • select graphic options
  • output to
  • extended desktop
Maybe some changings/modification will help you too.

Blank screen

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen went white, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace.
Thank you,

Works when it wants to then turns whie with grey line in it


If only the monitor is going to sleep, then it could be a problem with the connection from the monitor to the computer or with the cable.

If the computer goes to sleep and if you are not able to wake it from sleep then check the sleep mode settings and also the power management settings for the keyboard and mouse.
You may also do a system restore if you are not able to wake the computer from sleep.
