2/3rds of monitor dead

I just got home from a month trip to find that 2/3rds of my monitor's screen was dead. They top 1 3rd displays properly while the bottom 2 3rds alternate between bright whiteish noise that fades to a very dark grey. This happens even when the monitor is not plugged into my video card. Any help please... I'm hoping that there is some easy fix for this...

    Mine just did that tonight!! Exact same symtoms and top third of the screen okay but bottom messed up! I've had m 204B about 15 months. Is this about the average lifetime for a LCD monitor?

Take you monitor to a local television repairer. They have the test equipment. It may be blown or failed capacitors that are failing when warm.

My temp setting does not match my output temp

I have a recurring problem with a GE Profile PSB48LSRABV. Here's an example sequence:
  • Fresh food compartment set to 37F on the control panel (for months)
  • Thermometer in fridge reads 46F (with lots of water inside per manual)
  • Press "Display Temp" button, display shows fridge at 37F
  • Turn power off, count to 15, turn power on, wait for control panel to boot
  • Press "Display Temp" button, display shows fridge at 46F (matches thermometer!)
  • Compressor runs and cools fresh food compartment
  • Hours later thermometer in fridge reads 37-38 (yeah!)
  • Press "Display Temp" button shows fridge at 37F
  • Within days, the fridge is warmer inside again, thermometer inside reads 45+, but display reads 37 - unit needs to be "rebooted" again!
Fresh food thermistor from top of cabinet measured properly in ice water (and warmer water), the unit has always passed all the self-tests, and condensor coils and fan are clean, so I had techs come give it a shot under home warranty:
  • Trip 1 - Tech came to assess, ordered new evaporator fan
  • Trip 2 - Replaced fresh food evaporator fan (note new fan is working in fridge, and old fan works fine on bench)
  • Trip 3 - Ordered main computer PCBA
  • Trip 4 - Replaced main computer PCBA
Unfortunately, it continues the same cycle of misreading the temperature until power cycles, and taking a day off of work for each visit is getting painful.
Any ideas?

What causes flickering on 2/3rds of the screen on my SONY BRAVIA KDL-32L5000 MODEL?

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.

My ge stove is dead. control panel is out, burners and oven will not turn on

The circuit breaker probably tripped. Usually it will be a 2 pole 40 or 50 amp breaker. Turn it all the way OFF, then back ON. Sometimes it's not easy to visually tell if a breaker has tripped, so do it anyway. If that doen't solve the problem post back please.

Monitor is about 2 1/2 years old, so its out of warranty. Display comes on for about 2 seconds then shuts off. When display shuts off, power light also turns off. When its on, display also seems dimmer...

Look for bad caps with bulging top in the power supply first, two years is about the right time for bad caps, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see so we can guide you further.

Vertical green lines

It sounds like th green LCD panel laminations or bonding has separated and this is causing your green lines. The optical block would have to be replaced to solve the problem.
