Sony 420GS screen turns green, YUK!

  1. My Xmas pressie this morning when I turned on the PC, was a seasick green colour on my Sony 420GS monitor!
    Apparently all the "whites" have disappeared!
    First thought was: the card has gone, but changing out the monitor revealed that the card is OK.
    This monitor has a fixed VGA-cable, but also "sports" a front-input for a second card or PC.
    Using the front-input with a separate VGA-cable "revived" the monitor, pointing to either a fault in the fixed VGA-cable or on the primary input-circuit.

    Anybody around who has had this error? And if so, how did you solve it?

    bad connection?

    It sounds like a bad connection/connector in the "fixed cable, but then, I've never experienced a G SOD! Hoping it's not a progressive defect. :(

    Well, in the past when a TV of mine went green-tint, it was time for a new one. My PC monitors have died from other-than-green reasons. :)
