20 Most Recent Sony SDM-HS73/H (Grey) Monitor Questions & Answers


It can be the power supply/inverter board caps problem, but this 17" and 19" model are known for bad lamp assembly as you can see in my albums here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/SONY/Sony%20SDM-HS73/

I will be just about impossible to get the board or lamp replace, cost too much.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), 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/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

At this point you may have bad transformers, bad tuning cap, you need to check the frequency of the inverter oscillator to see if both of them are running at the same frequency, the bad one may not be. The Inverter/power supply is not made by SONY, Powernet makes the board. Please see what went wrong with the one I fixed.

One thing to keep in mind, when the board turn into carbon (blacken), it will conduct. The circuits operate at high voltage and high frequency.

Hello there... Sony seems a choosy brand so it looks like your disc is not recognized by it. Check also your disc for scratches or you just need to clean your disc first before you can use it. Try it. If this doesn't help, try inserting your disc to other CD-ROM. See if your disc is okay. Hope this helps...
Ai-ai :)

The push-button activates a small motor that turns a small rubber belt/ band that opens the cassette door. Since it's not been used for 10 yrs, I would say these belts would have deteriorated and broken. you will need to replace them. the best bet is to open it up and check. if its the case, you should be able to source the belts on ebay.

this is easy, that OUT OF range means
the PC sending video is sending and illegall higher resolution
than the projector supports (or even less, on this old junk)
the manual on that old projector is clear on that. max.
SONY VPL-EX4 2007, 13 years old now.
and back then projectors STINK !
your manual shows this, and stinks.
what stinks worse is no matrix of legal H./V resolutions shown in the manual. (shows only 1)
so set the PC to 1400 x 1050 and do not use others . ok.
and 60Hz, are you in USA? not stated country.

Hi,

Looks like you are having a bad LCD screen, This could be due to drop damage. Cracks can be so tiny and may not be visible immediately. I would take it to a technician and get a screen replacement.

You probably need more ram memory. Also try playing a video in your dvd player. If it plays slow and choppy you definitely need more ram memory.

If you are trying to play a video from a website (streaming) then three things can affect how smooth it plays.
1) Memory - your ram memory might be low
2) The website might be experience heavy traffic from many users.
3) The Line Speed of your internet connection from your service provider might be slow. For example: AT&T sells about 3 or 4 different packages and each one increases the line speed for uploading or downloading. If you buy the low end package the line speed is very slow on uploading and downloading or streaming. It's ok for just surfing, but nothing else.

all things can be repair,
only price to do so matters.
one mans garbage is others treasure.

can't speak for you ever.
but in my hands yes, garbage.
spend hard cash on newer more supported products.
2010 or newer is good rule.

Might be motor-boating. Used to be a fairly common fault with older less sophisticated circuitry. The cause could be anything from a fault in an interim power supply to stray feedback causing an oscillation with a low speed harmonic. Considering your description it could be the latter - impedance mismatch maybe, between the external mic and the amp input...

Sounds like you accidentally pressed the power button while you were dusting and turned it off. You just need to turn the HT-S200F back on.
It's the 1st button on the left of the control panel, which is located on top of the soundbar, in it's center. .
