Sony monitor acting weird - PVM-1954Q
on Dec 29, 2005 at 8:00:04 pm

Hi

My edit suite monitor is suddenly acting strange. The monitor is a Sony PVM-1954Q broadcast monitor.

Yesterday I attempted to switch on underscan. But from that point forward, the monitor buttons on the front are acting like they cannot be used. (like they are locked or inhibited), and I can no longer get my signal to be seen.

I confirmed black in, and it is fine.

Any thoughts?
Thank you

Sounds like it might have been a "static electricity" issue.
( A jolt can sometimes "lock" the logic.)

If it happens again, try pulling out the AC plug for 60 seconds, plug back in, and see if all is well.

Hi Matt,

I tried what you suggested but it did not appear to change things.

The buttons are changing on their own and not responding at all to my attempts.

Doesn't sound good. If the logic board got a real ZAP of static (or any other kind of jolt) it MIGHT be "toasted".

To make sure its not any kind of incoming "wild" voltage or surges,
try connecting ONLY a stand-alone camcorder, (running on its own battery) playing a tape, directly to the monitor (disconnect any other gear and/or sync cables) and see if the monitor buttons still act oddly.
