Question about Sony SDM-HS94P/S 19" LCD Monitor
I was working with the screen yesterday it was fine. Today when I turn it on it loaded the picture fine and after 1 min it just went white. What gives Thanks?
If a component had blown it probably would not work at all...what you have as a problem is a component that gets hot and then fails (intermittent). These are tough to find until it actually fails completely even for an experienced technician. Could it be the inverter...yes or any one of a number of other components unfortunately. If it failed completely then a tech could find the problem (even without a schematic). The only thing I can suggest is to check Ebay for the identical model and if you can find one with physical damage to the screen it might be worth swapping parts....these are cheap as they are guaranteed not to work and you may get one that only has a damanged screen (no additional electronic problems). That's the best I can suggest unless you want to try sending it in for repair to the mfg...check prices first...you may be able to buy one less expensively.

If it is still white you may be out of luck unless in warranty. Here are the steps to go thru to prove it's either the monitor or the video card. First take the monitor to another computer and connect it. If okay try it, being careful with all connections, on your machine again. If not okay and under warranty send it in to the mfg. If out of warranty and it's over 4 years old (and you use it for 3-5 hours per day) you might want to think new as opposed to repair. Another option is to try a local TV repair shop (not a computer shop as few will repair monitors). I have had CRT monitors blow a capacitor after a year of use. My 21 inch 500 lb (or at least it feels that heavy when I move it) monitor I am loath to part with has been running strong for 5 additional years. The cost was one capacitor and $30.00. If it worked on the other computer (doubtful based on what you said) you could have a video card problem. If the video card is built into the motherboard don't dispair. You can find one that will be adequate (unless you are a gamer and need a really high end video card) for less than $20. You will probably want an AGP card....pricewatch.com can point you in the right direction. Assuming you are a home or business user an off brand video card in the $12-$15 range (or cheaper) should be fine....Make sure what you buy (and almost all are) is equal to or better than 800 x 600 resolution. 1024 X 762 is what most of the world uses. Good luck.
