My monitor shows vertical lines on the screen when on.  Is there a way to trouble shoot this problem.

I've had vertical lines appear on a Marshal monitor when the HD-SDI signal had become weak because of what was likely a loose connection that eventually lead to no signal at all.  


I'd start by connecting the monitor to an HD-SDI line directly to the source and bypassing your sled to see if it is the monitor or a weak signal somewhere within your sled's connections.

Thanks for the tip.  I tried it without resolve, but it was a smart initial troubleshoot.  Victor, I am using the steadicam scout and am connected to it through the HD/SD in port to a Black Magic Cinema Camera and out from that to the SDI out port.  It is not so much vertical lines as it is some kind of interference like the old ntsc televisions.  Not quite salt and pepper but similar with a vertical line pattern to it...
