Question about Sony CPD G420 19" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Standby problem My sony monitor seems to have some problems coming out of standby. When in standby the amber led is lit. It changes to green attempting to come out of standby but then the amber led comes on again but this time blinking. The only way I can get the thing going again is to shut down the pc and pull the power plug and video cable on the monitor. Then reconnect the power and video cable and restart the pc. This fault does not happen all the time but is annoying when it does.

    Shortly after I turn on my 19 inch Sony Multi-scan monitor and it makes a audible click and the light goes from green to flashing amber and the screen goes blank/black. I used to be able to get it back by powering it off/on but now it switches off within a couple secs every time.

    Same as above. Mines just started doing this. The flashing orange led is a fault code for the monitor.

Bear.....my HMDA400 CRT Sony ..is doing the same thing....you need to discharge the CRT of static, then open the case and vacume the boards, heat sinks and every thing soldered down, strap grounds and the glass tube CRT.

Then run the self diognostic from the manual ..its simple and will tell you if the problem is major...usually it is a pwr issue...ie the pwr strip outlet may be shorting or pulsing erratical out put....bad strip......if the self diognostic shows the monitor is bad....best thing to do is replace the main monitor PC board to avoid testing other componants with speciality equpment you don't have! Last resort replace the CRT...the most expensive piece of the puzzle...ie the picture tube it self...

try a good known monitor on your system to be sure you don't have a software, or CPU problem or pwr glitch.....know this ,a black screen with no raster(lines, visuals) could be a sign of a faulty FBT(fly back transformer)...it happens with CRT units...sucks doesn't it...and you would be advised to" wear rubber gloves" to replace the FBT yourself....because of the dangerous voltage stored in the damn things.....its the current not the voltage that is deadly.....two hands on any circuit is not good....one hand at a time when taking parts out and putting them in.....get rid of rings watches and other conductive bling on your wrists and hands!....you will thank you me for that! good luck!

Why is the green light going on and off on my senaphone modle 400?

I'm assuming this is the System On LED on the Sensaphone 400. That would indicate that the unit is in standby mode. All you will need to do is Press the [Run/Standby] key this will turn the Sensaphone back On. The system On LED on the Sensaphone 400 & 800 flash when the device is in standby mode, solid lit when the device is On. If these units are in standby, they do not recognize alarms nor do they pick up the phone on a dial in.

Here is a link to the manual if needed

Screen stays black but lit when shut down

If the monitor led is indicating stand by and it seems as if the monitor is still on, could be a sign of an aging monitor. As long as the led changes along with the function of the monitor there's really no way to indicate the monitor still on after shut down especially when the led is amber telling you it's on standby mode.

My Sony Bravia HX8/46 will not turn on, I check all the power going to it and it all works. Is there something I can do?

Is the standby led on the front lit. If not likely the problem is with power supply. If the standby led is on does it go off when the power button is pressed? Does the led blink. If so count the blinks and get back. The power supply provides an standby voltage to the main board. If the standby led is lit then this voltage is present. When the power button is pressed the micro sends a turn on voltage to the power board. Normally the power supply will respond and all other voltages needed to operate the set will come up. if a component is shorted the micro will not turn on the power board and will usually give a failure code via the standby led.

Hi, My SONY CPD G420 monitor has suddenly stopped working - the front led is blinking amber. After power cycling the LED stays green for a few seconds before going back to blinking amber. I have verified...

just unplug the signal cable and see if it shows a warning! if it shows then the monitor is in some working condition! this problem mainly is not the monitors problem its the systems problem, it seem as if the system is in standby when u on it right??? it happens when the processor doesn't get supply or it refuses to come on! you will see that the red hdd load led will not light when u start the CPU; just open the CPU and unplug the smps from the board and blow the pins to clean them up and re-fix it and see it will work. if still it doesn't work try some other smps it will work! reply and revert back for more help with a vote!

Stuck on amber light will not turn on

An amber light normally means that there is no signal getting to the screen, if it was stuck in standby then the LED would be red.

Please check your connections to cure the fault

Monitor powers down upin startup

you need a new video card. it is powering down becuase it is not reciving any signal from you computer. if you are useing onboard video (vga) get a pci video card if you are useing a pci card try puting it in a dfrent slot.
