Strange hissing sound and smell comes from the monitor


Whenever you experience an unusual smell coming from anything electrical, always turn it off and/or disconnect it from any power source until you learn more about the problem. A fire can make make any problematic device seem suddenly unimportant.


10_24_2012_3_24_03_pm.jpg

An extremely common component in nearly any electronic device is a capacitor. The sizes vary from baby-tooth-sized to bowling-ball-sized found in the power box for most photography studios. The hissing sound is likely caused by one of these. The noisy capacitor may be going bad or another component or an electrical short may be causing it to get too much power. I've attached a video of what happens when capacitors get too much power.


An electrical short could also be causing both symptoms. If the smell is similar to burning organic matter, you likely have an insect (a crispy critter) that can be removed to remedy your problem. However, an electrical burn usually releases gases from burning rubber or plastic and has a distinctly different type of odor. If that's the smell and you are handy with a soldering iron, remove the cover to your monitor and look for signs of burning or overheating. Otherwise, the task should be left to an electronics shop for repair.

Power outage at home. Monitor (Sceptre x9g) no longer powers up.


pop the back off of it and remove the power board, (it's the one that looks more primitive) look at the solder points on the back of the board for any burns or bubbles....

if not then you need to order a new power suply

In case you know very well electronics, you must open the cover of your monitor and find a fuse burned. You change this. You must repair power supply which supports voltage to work light on your screen. You must be expert to repair this.

I fixed mine. Had to replace one bulging capacitor in the power supply. Yours may need more or less but it was pretty easy if you do any electronics. The specifics can be found under some of the other problem posts, especially for one of the 19" sceptres.

Sceptre monitor will not return from idle.


The only workaround was to not use the DVI cable but to use the old VGA cable. You still get the same resolution.
I have a different ATI board, so I'm thinking it's an ATI+Sceptre on DVI input bug. Anyway, use the VGA cable, it'll work.
