Question about Sony SDM-X95KB (Black) 19" LCD Monitor
i have a slight problem...I have a Sony SDM-X95KB 19 (i think), i one day right clicked on my desk top and saw that a drop down menu came out and i had an option to switch to TV MODE on my pc....now my screen went completly black. when a long time goes by the screen saver comes on and i can only see the floating windows xp logo.
ive tried right clicking but i dont see the drop down menju anymore. i also took it (my pc) to BEST BUY and they they found nothing wrong with it but coencidently found 110.00 worth of other problems that they fixed with a prepaid amount and with out asking they "fixed" everything else but my problem.
CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE.
It's funny when reading sweetanne post on her Sony LCD SDM-HS73 Monitor which I also have ,I could copy her word for word ( I own a Sony LCD SDM-HS73 Monitor, its almost 4 years old. Never had any problems with it until now. When my computer has been turned off for awhile, and I turn it back on, the monitor green light comes on, but the screen is black. I have to uplug the monitor from the power supply, and when its plugged back in, everything is fine. ) Only mine does come on but it takes anywhere up to 15 minutes to come on and I've noticed with the green power light on I cant press to shut off unless I'm shutting the computer off.. Sony was no help gave me a number to call so I called it and yes up to $200 to fix if they can so for the time I will just have to put up with this. :-(

bratty, do you have a pic on which capacitor this is? Also where I can find a replacement one.
My monitor is doing the same thing, nice and bright for 1/2 a sec then goes super dull, you can barley see anything.

SOURCE: Sony SDM-HS73 Not Staying On
The problem is with power inverter, usually the capacitors go bad and need to changed, they might be bulged and or leaking. Very cheap fix, less than a buck apiece and an hour with a solder iron. Google it to find more info.

I had the problem sometimes, but then I connected a second computer to the analog input and found out, that the screen didnt turn black but switches between the inputs on an on.
I found out that the "input" button seems to be short or damaged, as the behaviour was invertable by pressing the button. I blew into the button some times (a very naive solution, yeah) but it worked, the switching stoppped.

h_e_l_l_f_i_, Have you performed the flashlight test after the screen goes "BLANK" ?? No!! You will not find the "flashlight" test listed in the OWNERS manual!! The test is a quick evaluation of the STATE of the units "switch-mode-power-supply". Did you repair the power supply to get online to fixya? The more info you tell me about your LCD monitor the better I can assist you. Is the unit really "BLANK" or is it just "BLACK"?? Can you SEE the WIN-desktop when a bright "flashlight" is held 1" from the screen at different angles? If you can see a faint image being displayed it means the SMPS is in partial shutdown and still powering the VGA to LCD interface board. If unit is both BLACK and BLANK, then SMPS is likely in full shutdown mode! I will assume that when you stated "runs" for 5 minutes, that it would display normal text and graphics as usual and NOT be wearing a pair of NIKE's runners footwear? Yes! From your description it would lead me to think that your SONY has a SMPS/INVERTER problem. You failed to state the age and or approximate TOTAL "ON" hours the unit has. (hrs/day x 350days x Years since DOM). It makes a difference in whether I tell you to trade up to a wide screen or have it repaired(refurbished with new SMPS/INVERTER or just rehab the SMPS on your own. hellfi, surely, after reading this you WILL go to YOUTUBE, (just fyi) and view some of the longer video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and typical "LCD monitor repair"!! You WILL be impressed at how much you will learn about how "the black screen of death" is dealt with. If this response helps in any way, please rate it on fixya. 12fixlouie lmistyrel @ aim.com Get back to me if further assistance is required asap!!!
