    I use my desktop regularly, and I turned it on today and it worked. But while my PC was starting up i accidentally brushed my graphics card with a piece of metal from another part of my PC. That was when my monitor's colors got messed up and it had green at 100%. I turned off my PC to try and rectify the problem, but the monitor stayed on and now it won't turn off unless I unplug it. My PC works just fine, but my monitor won't acknowledge anything i do. It won't show anything when i start my PC or turn off. The light is stuck on yellow.

    I moved to a new home and set up my Dell computer weeks later. The monitor comes on green for a short second before returning to a solid yellow. This is the monitor - Dell D1728D-LS VS17X Monitor. I can press the buttons to the left and get a response, i.e. "Digital input. Self Test Feature Check" comes up and when I hold the key down long enough I get a green light on the monitor. So far, nothing.

I have a mitsubishi WD- 6oc9 tv when i power my TV i get a steady blinking light and no picture. my husband replaced the lamp about six months ago. dont think thats the issue. need ideas on how to repair.

Sounds like lamp needs replaced. If you purchased a cheap lamp from ebay or your installer did, that is about all they will last. On your next lamp buy an osram or Philips lamp. They are a lot better quality.

I had a similar problem, and took it to an authorized repair shop(under warranty), the kept it six months, and JVC finally admitted there are solder connections with that model, and six months later, we got a new unit. I will buy Sony next time
