Question about Sharp LL T15A4-H (Black) 15" LCD Monitor

Open Question

SHARP monitor (-B, not -H) has 3 inch wide vertical 'zones' visible in LCD. Worse to the right.

There are 3-inch wide vertical 'zones' appearing on my screen, zones where the resolution appears poorer in each zone towards the right side of the screen and at it's best (ie. normal) in the left zone. There are distinct edges to these zones, but no dead pixels. They are most noticable when the screen is dark or blank (but switched on). The WIN XP 'starfield' screensaver is a good illustration. It shows clearly the defined zones getting more grey/white towards the right, while the left zone appears clear and normal. They sometimes flicker into view even on the brightest screens, and sometimes are only just visible on a fairly dark screen. The only thing the computer does which seems able to affect this phenomenon is if I try dragging a bright window (eg. My Computer) across a darker background, it appears to break the effect up into smaller chunks to the right of said window for a few seconds. I have tried adjusting every graphics card and monitor related setting on both the PC and monitor to no avail, I have tried it on many different computers and it stays problematic as described above. I have tried it with Linux, WIN 2000 and WIN XP (investigated most thoroughly with XP, with which I intend to use it) on several graphics setups. ALL THE SAME. HELP! I do not want to buy a new monitor (note the expense required) P.S. I may even try soldering if that is what it takes (I have basic skills in the area) (:-|)

    I have since phoned up Sharp Customer Services (again) and they have this time offered to replace the unit in a way which sounds very much like a product recall. Don't let this put anyone off adding solutions, as the replacement may not yet materialise and others need to know how to fix this and similar problems :-)

    The replacement did materialise. Anyone with this problem on this model of monitor take note!

SOURCE: LCD monitor very dark.

The most likely cause for this problem is the backlight in the LCD. Over time, this light gets dim causing the problem you describe. I have never actually replaced a backlight myself. With the price of monitors these days, even if I could find one I don't think it would be worth my time and money to replace. But if you want to take the chance, try finding a monitor with a cracked LCD on ebay or look at the back of your LCD screen after you remove it from the monitor and see if someone is selling a used one somewhere by searching for the model number of the LCD screen.

I'm confused as to how you're connecting this with s-video. Are you using an RGB / s-video adapter?

What is the exact monitor brand / model?

SOURCE: Monitor menu screen appears on screen

Try a hard reset: Unplug from power source, disconnect from PC and wait for 10 minutes. Reconnect everything and see if the issue is resolved.
If not, then you either have a loose contact on the menu button or failing circuitry. I'd recommend calling Sharp tech support in this case..

SOURCE: Sharp light turns green thern turns yellow screen goes black

it is going into sleep mode, good luck with this.... i am currently asking how to get my hard drive to quite putting my monitor into sleep mode.

although it hasn't worked for me because my screen stays black, one of the options given to me is to try to start in safe mode and then adjust your settings to "never" on the energy/sleep/hibernate mode

some one else suggested that i remove and reseat the video card

hopefully one of those will work for you

Whire vertical band , 3 inches wide with red kine in the middle

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.

Check the cables, connectors and connections.

Take it to a repair shop.

This is a problem with the LCD panel. If the tv is out of warranty, I would call Samsung and see if they will pay for the panel and you pay for the labor. The panel is not cost effective to repair. If Samsung will not do anything you will need to buy a new tv.
