Question about Sony SDM-HS73P 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

The screen has a dark green tint and cannot be adjusted. More specifically, the green section of the RGB setting on the monitor can't be changed (the G setting is permanently gray and I cannot move to that color to adjust it, the cursor just passes over it.. Is there any way to fix that? I have attempted to set the other colors to offset the G setting, but the tint still shows, especially with dark colors. I have switched PC's and cords but nothing is working.

Take it in for repair seems to me that you have done all that you could to fix this monitor it is a flat maybe worth the repair if the repair is slightly less or more I would consider spending the green on a new one they are getting down in price. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Monitor colorization problems


1.) Check to see if the screen has a peel-away, cellophane type shipping protector on it ( transparent with a rose color tint ? ). 2.) Click Start >> Control Panel >> Display >> Settings >> Advanced. If this section has a tab labelled "GAMMA", you can manually adjust all display settings. 3.) If no gamma control is available - download one FREE ( Dark Adapted ) here >>

A lot of green tint in the picture


Hi, what you do is unscrew and take off the grill, take off the black board behind it. You will see a little box for adjusting RGB you will adjust the screen rgb to get the tint to go away and have a perfect color then you will adjust the focus for sharpness. (reset the tv to factory settings before doing this so that your tint, color, brightness and everything else is in the middle.

Hello YankeeTwidgt,

Here we go you will need a schematic diagram (You may already have one but I thought I would mention it ), an oscilloscope, a TV signal generator (NTSC color bar, RGB purity screens, and pattern screen), and a voltmeter (I would prefer you have a VTVM, but a digital meter with high impedance (>=10M) will be ok).

First turn all of the color and tint controls completely down (This includes the main color and tint and the pre-amp color controls if you have access to them).

Then turn the RGB pots fully counterclockwise.

Once this is done connect the signal generator set to channel 3, and set to the specifications on the schematic, use the color bars, what you should see at this point are bars of various shades of gray.

Then turn the generator to the purity setting and set the pattern to red.

Once this is done your screen should be dark or dark red, gradually adjust the R pot until the screen is pure red and the voltages, and signals match what is seen in the schematic (mark this point on the pot and the return the pot to fully counterclockwise).

Do the same for the Blue and Green Controls (Blue first and then Green).

Once all of the pots are marked and turned to counterclockwise, set the pattern to gray purity, and turn the pots back up to their marked positions, the screen should be gray. switch to color bars and the screen should have the proper colors.

This is a course adjustment, and you will have to do a fine adjustment using the schematic, and the test tools, but this will put you way into the ball park.

The reason these pots are not talked about in gray scale adjustments is because they usually don't have to be touched. That's why it is important to get them back to specification using the voltmeter and oscilloscope to set the signals up properly.


I wish you success,
