Sony CPD E500 - Power On from cold problem

Hi.
Ok, I boot my PC , turn on the monitior and the green light flashes and continues to flash green as if looking for a signal from the PC.
Then after waiting anything between 20min and 2 hours it powers on as usual and goes to orange light standby mode.
It can then be turned off and on with no problem, untill it is left off over night again, and the cycle starts over.
It's an excellent monitor and in otherwise perfect condition, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Mark

    Thanks for the suggestion dileep007, but I have already tried the monitor on another PC with the same problem. I've also swapped the vga cable.

    Same issue. It doesn't always turn on. The green light does, but blinks, and the screen stays black. I try switching it on and off, nothing happens until eventually i switch it on and it seems to connect with something, maybe the computer connection, because i hear a click of some sort and the screen opens up.

Put the case back. CRT has high voltages that can kill you!

Take it to someone who knows what they are doing.

Hi, My SONY CPD G420 monitor has suddenly stopped working - the front led is blinking amber. After power cycling the LED stays green for a few seconds before going back to blinking amber. I have verified...


just unplug the signal cable and see if it shows a warning! if it shows then the monitor is in some working condition! this problem mainly is not the monitors problem its the systems problem, it seem as if the system is in standby when u on it right??? it happens when the processor doesn't get supply or it refuses to come on! you will see that the red hdd load led will not light when u start the CPU; just open the CPU and unplug the smps from the board and blow the pins to clean them up and re-fix it and see it will work. if still it doesn't work try some other smps it will work! reply and revert back for more help with a vote!

Green light blinking screen blank


Hi Suzee,

Is the green flashing on the tower or the monitor?

If it is flashing on the monitor, then it might be tht the monitor is not gettign signal from the tower.
To check, disconnect the monitor from the tower and check the monitor. If you get a msg on the screen like no input signal or check video cable, then 99% monitor is fine.

Check for the power supply light at the back of the tower.

Disconnect everything from the computer and then press and hold the power button on the comp for about 30 seconds.

Then connect the cables and check if it is working.

Monitor flashes on and off!


Sounds like you have a bad connection from your monitor to your computer. First check and make sure the connection between them is tight. Does your computer boot up and run though? If your computer is not booting up the monitor will default back to the flashing green power light
