Sony LCD SDM-X72 Goes Green In Black Areas
Posted on 2006-03-26
Hi all. This monitor just started doing this. It seems that after it has been on a while where ever there is supposed to be the color black displayed, it goes to a "running" green color. What I mean by running is that the green color is kinda flowing like the TV static you have when a channel has shut off (snow as we used to call it). If you turn the monitor off and then back on after a minute, it will be ok. Sometimes its fine for the rest of the time I use it (1-3hrs) and sometimes it will go back to the green problem within 2 minutes. I know it's in the monitor. Just happen to have a spare video card and installed it with the same problem. Then I went dual monitors and the other monitor showed no problems....even when I switched the monitors from main display. One time when I switched the monitors via OS from primary to secondary and back again, the LCD monitor cleared up and was ok for the rest of the day. Is there a way to repair this monitor? I sure hate to just junk it. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
