Question about Sony SDM-HS73P 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

SDM-HS73P Sony monitor

This is the culmination of problems that I've had with my Sony SDM-HS73P. The first was that when ever I would power down the computer it was attatched to, the monitor would not immediately come back on. The power light would remain orange. We recently took it across country (I'm in the military and had to make a move from the west coast to the east) and when I plug it in now, it doesn't even show a light on the power button. I'm guessing that whatever powers the monitor is probably shot. Any way to check or is this just going to be a throw away monitor? It's sad because I've only had it a little over the span of the warrenty. But it's been a very tempermental monitor. I like the ultrabrites and I think it's time for a replacement, but I just don't know if I'll be able to afford it without getting the military to pay for the repair costs to buffer what it would cost to get a new monitor.

Had my monitor for four years, great performance

jlallen54, When lcd panel goes to a dark condition please shine a bright flashlight 1 inch from screen an tell me if screen data is still displayed during this "blackout" condition. It might be just a single (1) poor and now thermally intermittant solder connection on the printed circuit board inside the monitor. Do some reading first and then you will understand the problem that your monitor has. 12fixlouie
