Having problems with your Sony GDM-W900 24" CRT Monitor ?

Sony 24'' CRT widescreen GDM-FW900 blurry after initial on

\015 Not every time, but frequently, the screen will become blurry shortly after turning it on or having it recover from standby. This will last for 10 minutes or sometimes significantly longer, until the monitor loudly "pops" and all is crystal clear again.I'm not sure what the specifics of the problem are, but I know of another person with the same monitor having the same problem. Secondly, even if I can identify the problem, I'm running into difficulty finding ANYONE who repairs CRT's in KC. I'm tired of the line "they aren't worth fixing" as this monitor is still state of the art for a CRT, has benefits in adjustable resolution, color, and video over LCD, and just 5 years ago was running between $1450-1800.Help me save my CRT!!!\015

Answers :

CRT shorts are common with this model and focus problems are a major symptom. however, the loud 'pop' you described leads me to believe that the flyback transformer may have a problem in the focus divider portion. replace the flyback, if that fails then the CRT is most certainly the problem

Dead Monitor I was using a dual monitor graphics card - an ATI Radeon 9800 with two monitors. Both monitors (Sony Multiscan 200X and GDM-FW900) began to appear to degauss intermitently - zoom in/out. This went on for several days. Also, my computer would shut off by itself occasionally. This shutting off became more and more regular - every 10 mins or so. One of the last times I booted up my computer my GDM-FW900 monitor made a popping sound towards the back of the picture tube and quit working.

I have a Sony G420 CRT monitor which is starting to get too bright. There is a fix for this but in order to carry this out I first need to 'unlock' the control panel on the front of the monitor. For some reason the 'picture effect' button is unresponsive, while depressing the 'menu' button only gives me the manufacturer's date. My initial thought was to look for a firmware upgrade, but as I am on a Mac I am unable to find a suitable installer. Has anybody else struck this issue?
