Question about Sony CPD E500 (White) 21" CRT Monitor

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.

Have a HP m7470n. The green power light in the back is constantly on. The power button flashes blue and orange (~3 seconds each). The computer wont turn on. When I unplug the cord and plug it back in, the...


In my case it turned out to be a weak power supply. It would work sometimes and not others. If stone cold, it would not boot. If I unplugged 1 thing, like the hard drive or the CD Roms, it would boot. Tested the old power suppy and it seemed to pass. But once I connected a new power supply, the computer has worked fine ever since.

Any time i turn on my ps3 it will turn off


HI If the light turns yellow then red, this is a overheating issue. let it stand for an hour unplugged to cool.

Now, if the green light doesn't turn yellow before red, this will confirm that the HD(Hard disk), is experiencing some difficulties with the booting process. This will occur if the internal connections are damaged, due to a solder break. In this case, you will need to send the unit to Sony for a repair. Try removing the HD from the unit. after the unit HD is removed for a minute and re-installed, try to power up and initiate a boot. if the unit continues to not boot and flashes the red light after the HD is pulled, this will confirm that the HD is the culprit.

Contact Sony for a repair ticket if the problems persist.

Countinuous flashing green light. wont turn on


its in standby mode unplugg the computer from ac wait 30 mins and re hook Ac . the try tuning it on . when screen come up go to set up mode and force it into bios then reboot as see if it boots normally. if it does the your ok . it not it means its time for either a new power supply or a newcomputer. MTBF mean time between failures = total operating time your computer has been on.

Dont leave computer on all the time. this lengthens the MTBF.
