Question about Soyo DYLM24D6 LCD Monitor

2 Answers

My Soyo DYLM24D6 monitor screen goes black on reboot, can hear Windows XP Pro loading music but cannot even see the start-up screen from motherboard BIOS. I'm trying to find SOYO website but keep getting stuck in an infinite loop locking up my Internet Browsers when trying to go to www.soyo.com. Did the company fold/go out of business? Was this monitor recalled? Do you have a contact phone number or new URL to reach the SOYO company by any chance? I cannot afford to buy a new 24" LCD PC monitor, really need the wide screen and size due to eyesight issues, so I would really like to get this problem resolved.

    Yep, DVI cabling the first thing I checked, works flawlessly right now on my SONY SDM-HS95P 19" LCD monitor. Using same cable I've been using since I bought the SOYO back in November of 2008. The screen blanking is a new issue, just began about 2 months ago, is not getting worse and only goes blank during reboots or cold boots. Sometimes I get through the BIOS screen and Windows XP Pro goes black, other times I can hear Windows loading through my speakers but screen is blank as stated previously. It's as if Windows isn't recognizing the SOYO during start-up, or as if the monitor power supply could be failing, completely intermittent. I've been building computer systems for more than 21 years, for both US military and civilian markets. Current PC being used is one I'd built in 2007, DFI LP UT CFX/3200 DR based liquid-cooled gaming rig running Windows XP Pro. The SOYO monitor is on the same system and running on the same DVI cable I'd been using since the system was built, so it's not a cable issue.

    Thanks too for the SOYO bankruptcy information, I had no idea, and thanks for your time

I would not be surprised if it does have bad caps in the power supply section.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

    For some reason this Site cuts off the bulk of my replies, limiting them to just a few words.
    I had typed a 500 word response only to have it cut down to a couple of sentences and no idea why.
    I will be back to comment just as soon as I'm able to dive into my SOYO and take a look-see, you have my word on that guys, if this Site allows full comment next time.
    With my extensive background in Electronic Assembly, these Links and comments should make this repair a simple task, saving me hundreds of $$$ too.
    MANY THANKS!!!

    I didn't think to look for bad caps, despite seeing this on old Mainboards before.
    I partially took apart my SOYO TOPAZ S monitor moments ago. Looking at the PSU board caps the caps all look normal. The large 450V cap top looks a tiny bit swollen but no signs of leakage, doesn't appear to be part of the cap repair kit. Two aluminum heatsink boxes are soldered directly to the PSB, over the caps. All solder joints have good fillets and appear well connected, including all chip caps/resistors

Yes, they went out of buisness.
Soyo Group filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy with the United States District Court for the Central District of California, Riverside Division (case number 09-19355-RN), and ceased operations on May 5, 2009.

Have you checked all the leads and cables for faults?

Thank you for your query

Your monitors inverter has burnt out and will need your monitor replacing

Thank you for answering those questions. That usually indicates it has a bad power inverter. From what i can tell, that monitor is a few years old. You can attempt to find an inverter online to replace it yourself (usually about $50 if you can find one) since its no longer covered under warranty, or put that money into getting a new monitor.

SOYO DYLM24E6 DISPLAYS OUT OF RANGE WAS TOLD MONITOR HAS A RESET BUTTON IF SO WHERE OR IS THERE A FIX FOR THIS MONITOR IT IS NEW


Restart your computer in Safe Mode
(or reconnect your previous monitor).

Set the screen-resolution to 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.
Shutdown, connect the new monitor, and restart, and your Soyo monitor will be able to display something, using these "NOT-out-of-range" values.

Try changing the resolution to 1024-by-768, or 1280-by-1024,
and "test' these values, to see what values are "in-range" for your new monitor.

Need drivers for windows XP Pro


If you have access to the internet you need to go on line and download them. I assume you don't have an XP pro disk?
In your control panel go to "system" "hardware" "device manager" Open your monitor and have it look for a driver. A website where you can download directly is www.drivers.com
