Question about Sony SDM-HS74P/S 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Sony SDM-HS74P/S 17 Monitor won't stay on the right picture.

Hello, when My computer is turned on, I turn my monitor on, and the screen is there, but it only stays for about 2 seconds. Then it goes black. I've also played with the input buttons, and can bring the picture back, but then again, it doesn't stay. I've tried restarting the computer, turning the monitor off for a long time, unplugging the monitor from the computer, and from power, and then retrying. Is there a valid reset button on this monitor, or is there anything else I can do to keep the picture?

When the screen turns black again take a flashlight and shine it in the bottom left hand corner where the Windows Start button is located. If you can see a faint image then your back light is failing. If that?s not the case the next step would be to attach another monitor to your computer to see if the problem disappears. If it does that points to the monitor, if it doesn?t then we need to take a look at the computer itself. Let us know what you find out and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

SOURCE: My Sony SDM-HS74P display does not stay on.

I have the same issue and wrote the monitor off for now after checking all cables (and a different computer). The logic circuitry and panel are sill ok as I can see a faint image with proper lighting and close inspection, but no backlight makes it useless.

Since there are 4 lamps (CCFLs) on this model, the problem likely is not there but on the inverter circuitry driving them. This does not look easy to replace as this is part of a bigger board.

It looks like some could repair by changing a few (or even one) component on the board, but unless your are used to this (de-soldering and soldering back), you are kind of stuck.

I will attempt this if I have time as I hate junking 99.9% ok hardware. In your case since this is an old monitor you should just replace it if not technically (on the electronics side) apt.

You may not have problem with the caps, but check them out any way. You should get good caps such as PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY.COM
