Distorted picture on Sampo 42" monitor

Hello,

I have a problem with my Sampo 42" monitor. I have had this unit for about 4 years and it worked fine until about a few months ago. When I first turn the monitor on, the picture seems fine with the exception of a few small white lines flashing horizontally accross the screen. After about 5 to 10 minutes the picture turns into a mosaik effect with 13 white vertical lines spaced approximately 2.5 inches apart. However, the white lines disapear again after a while, but the mosaik effect remains. When I turn the monitor off and then on again, the picture is OK for about 5 minutes and then the same thing starts all over again. If you have seen this before, please let me know what the problem could be and if this can be fixed. The monitor is mounted in a corner of two walls and kind of difficult to remove, but it can be done.

 

Thank you,  RD

    Hello again,

    I still have a problem with my Sampo 42" monitor. When I first turn the monitor on, the picture seems fine with the exception of a few small white lines flashing horizontally across the screen. After about 5 to 10 minutes the picture turns into a mosaic effect with 13 white vertical lines spaced approximately 2.5 inches apart. However, the white lines occasionally disappear but return after a while, the mosaic effect however remains. Then this effect turns into flashing squares across the screen. When I turn the monitor off and then on again, the picture is OK for a few minutes and then the same thing starts all over again.



    As per your previous suggestions I have connected another cable as well as another computer, but the problems remain the same. I also must mention that the Sampo Monitor is the second of a 4 monitor system, however the other three monitors do not display such behavior.



    Last but not least, I made screen-shots of the monitor, but unfortunately the screen-shots do not display any of these these problems. The monitor on the screen-shots displays perfectly what I am suppose to be seeing. It is therefore that I think that this is strictly a monitor display problem.



    You mention that we might have to replace the capacitors on the CRT as this is a typical convergence failure on the convergence IC's. Unfortunately I do not know what these things are or where to get them from, but I know someone who could help. You also ask if I can solder, no, and I am not very technical either, but again, I know someone who is. With your help and support I think we would be able to fix this. Please give us your advice and suggestions. Thank you.



    I look forward to your response,.

    RD

This can occur due to many reasons...the simplest of those is...
Damaged monitor signal cable...results in improper signal transmission
Also check if ths is a problem with the monitor or VGA card...Just connect it to another computer...If it works then its VGA card problem otherwise its a monitor problem.If you are good in electronics then the problem is
1)You have the typical convergence failure of the convergence correction IC's which need to be replaced

2)Cpacitors on the CRT are damaged and need to be replaced..

If you are not familiar with electronics pls dont attempt a repair as it is a high voltage device and the risk of electric shock wil be high.Just drop into a service center if this is the case

    Excellent thats more than enough just ask that person for open circuits or shorted capacitors on the CRT board using a multimeter..This problem is usually caused by dry-solders..
    Dont forget to report back..Eagle will be right here to see you thru this...

Hello, my Sharp Cd-sw200 no longer recognizes the cds that are in there and none of the 5 cd drawers will open. Everything else works fine. Unit is approx 3 years old and very gently used until 4 months...


Changers are the worse of the reliable units and Sharp is not among the best brands to get. The unit will need service by a Technician.
If none of the 5 drawers will not open how is it possible that the units works fine?

pull the rubber hose off the pressure switch. and blow into the Induced draft motor housing if you cant you can pull the hose off the IDM and try to clear it with a small paper clip. reconnect and try again. you can also get the flash code off the board while the unit is running but not working.

TV Will Not Start Occasionally


Sounds like this unit is still in warranty. Have the service people come out and look at it. If you don't have a bill of sale, you should still have production dates on the unit.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


I start my computer and turn it on, and everything looks fine for about 1/4 of a second and then it goes black while leaving the power light green. I can only see the screen again after turning it off and on, but that's only for another 1/4 second. What's up?
I got my rosewill flatscreen as a hand me down from my father. I've had it for several years now. Was working fine until a month ago. When I turn the computer on the screen goes black after 1/4 of a saecond. I have to turn it off and on anywhere from 10 to 20 times before it stays on. I have checked all plugs to the computer and outlets. I have absolutely no idea whats causing this.

"No Signal" floating notice on Blue Screen - No other picture


If all connections and the tuner have the same issue, you either have a power supply issue or a bad digital board.
