Question about Sony SDM-HS75P/S 17" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Blank Screen, Flashing orange power light...

When I plug the monitor in the power light just flashes orange. Pressing the power button has no affect on the light. Nothing appears on the screen at all.

Ideas? I have the soldering iron ready to rock!

    Thanks for the quick response Scotty! Checked for obvious burn spots, re-soldered some of the weaker spots thinking it might just have been a cold solder joint. I was trying to figure out what the blinking light might mean. I know the SONY tv's blink as a diagnostic but can't find the info on the LCD. My guess is a power issue too. I might just pop down to the electronics store and swap them all out. I think the board is $95 to replace and this is a 17" monitor so not really worth it but I enjoy the challenge of the repair. Keep the ideas coming :)

1st Idea - Let's take a look under the cover. I'm not sure how tech savvy you are, but I'm sure you're pretty good if you have a soldering iron. Once inside locate the power supply section. See if you see any blown capacitors on it or any other boards. One obvious way is to see if they are bad is if they have bulging up tops. There could be some weak or bad ones that aren't popped up, but let's start from there. If there are any bad caps, they are dirt cheap price wise at an electronics shop. Keep me posted and let em know what you find. - Scotty

    I had a KDS 17" LCD come through the repair shop that could come on and go right back off. Under built power supply blew 6 Caps. $5 later it was alive again.

Gateway blank screen


Here's some tricks I would try. Something here, might help...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your monitor on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

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 screen blank and LED orange light flashing


For some reason, it seems as if your monitor has either lost the video signal or the capability to interpret the siganl. If you have the ability, put a second monitor (or tv) to your computer. See if you get a video siganl. If you do, then your monitor has an internal issue with the signal and needs to be addressed "hands on" by a technician. If you do not see a video, then your problem lies within your video card. Good luck.
