Having problems with your Sony SDM-HS74P 17" LCD Monitor ?

Monitor goes blank after a couple of seconds.

\015 My monitor goes blank after a couple of seconds. If I cycle the power on the monitor you can see that the computer is running fine, but the monitor won't stay lit. I haven't hooked another monitor up, but I'm thinking it would be working fine -- let's assume that for the time being (I'll borrow one to make sure). This happened when no-one was using the computer, but it was on at the time. Thanks for any suggestions!\015

Answers :

The problem can be the backlight inverter board or bad capacitors in the power supply section, I have seen bad soldering of the wires to the lamps are bad also.
