I have been having trouble with my Sony panel monitor for several months. The power to the screen would occasionally turn off, then would come back on if I tipped the screen back a little bit. I finally decided to just check to see if the cables were loose. The power was a little loose, so I pushed them in tight. However, the cable that connects to the pc doesn't seem to be working. I replaced that cable and it still didn't work with my Sony Vaio desktop.
Next I tried the new cable with another desktop computer, and that one works. Then I tried the original Sony monitor cable with the new desktop pc and it doesn't work, so I concluded the the original cable was bad.
Now the problem is that when I plug the new cable into the Sony desktop it says "cable disconnected" and the monitor goes into energy saving mode. I tried unplugging everything from the Sony pc and leaving the power off for about 15 minutes then connected and restarted and same problem. I can hear the pc running and the light on the front flashes like its thinking about something, but no video signal. I unplugged everything again and blew out all the dust with an air hose, reconnected, and same problem. Any other suggestions on how to get it going?
