Having problems with your Sony Computer Monitors ?

My Sony Moniter suddenly turned to a bright yellow

\015 All of a sudden, my Sony monitor turned a bright yellow and I don't know how to get the white back.\015

Answers :

If the display looks normal other than being yellow, it's missing blue.

This may be because of a bad cable. Sometimes the wires inside break from flexing. Try wiggling the cable (as mikeslab suggested) at the end where it connects to the computer. Also check the plug for bent pins.

It's more likely the monitor has lost blue due to solder connections to the blue output transistor or transistor failure, or that the picture tube itself has gone bad and the blue gun has quit. Tube failure is pretty rare. I've seen many cases of bad connections and transistors, though.

If the cable and plug aren't the cause, you can have a service shop check the monitor and give a repair estimate. But if this is a 17- or 19-inch monitor, you might just want to replace it. New LCD's are $150 or less. To repair yours would be around half that cost already, possibly more depending on labor and parts costs.
