I've exhausted the possibilities at the Sony website for this one and I thought someone here might have had the same problem:

I have a Sony Vaio 19' Trinitron monitor (HMD-A400). Recently it's been clicking off and the light on the front flashes amber instead of a steady green. To get it back on I have to turn the power off for about 15 seconds and then turn it back on.

I've noticed that the clicking off happens only when I either maximize a browser window or if I have Photoshop running maximized and then I pull a browser window up in front of it.

The Sony knowledge base has nothing about this. I've installed the newest drivers, etc, but it's still happening.

Any clues?

obviously your monitor is trying to screen all the rubbish you look at. Unfortunatly the volume is just too high so it is shorting out.

thats my educated guess.

hm... it could be that you've been running the monitor above it's specs for a while - and it's electronics quickly shut off the power when the overload becomes dangerous... you havn't been running it at 120hz, or maybe 2100xsomething@95hz ;-). If you did, toning that down a bit might help. For a while.

Otherwise, it sounds like an electronics problem.
