New Sceptre 37" LCD TV does not turn on

I just received a new Sceptre 37" 720p LCD TV and after taking it out of the box and connecting the power cord, the indicator light turns a solid blue but the screen does not turn on. I tried changing the power cord, plugging in av and component cables, but nothing works. Unplugging it for a minute, replugging it, and waiting for 30 seconds to turn on like the Sceptre tech said does not work. The blue indicator light does not turn red to go into standby. Pressing every button on the tv and remote produces no results. What is the problem?

    Everything was working fine until I plugged an HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the back. The blue light came on, the picture does not display, and nothing changes no matter which buttons I press. I am only able to get rid of the blue light if I unplug the Sceptre. Once I plug it back in, the blue light comes back. I wonder if there is a reset process I can use?

    It will show the red "standby" light at the bottom left, but no blue "on" light, nor any picture whatsoeverwhen pressing the standby button on both the remote and the actual television panel. I have tried turning it completely off at the base, unplugging from the wall socket, waiting five minutes, then re-plugging into the wall and switching on at the base. Red "standby" light comes on to indicate power to the set, but standby button on the remote and on the tv panel itself have no effect. Help please.

I just got a 42" komodo by Sceptre, same problem, except "SCEPTRE" showed on the screen. I was sent a USB key program to insert in the service slot in the back and it reflashes the bios. This is old news for you but maybe new for someone?

Normally the a-v cables are color coded the white goes with white the red goes with red and yellow goes with the yellow and when putting it in the dvd player if applicable it should be the same way did your tv come with a manual showing you how to hook it up

Where can I get a Audio/Video cable and Power Cord for my Sceptre 30' LCD TV-X30SV-NAGA III?

They should be fairly generic and most major electronics stores should have them.

On the internet in North America look at MCM or Suburban Electronics as both carry a lot of these items.

How do i change the resolution from 750 to 1080

If you are watching over the air channels via an outdoor antenna, the display resolution 480i, 480p,720p or 1080i is set by the broadcaster. If you are connected to a BluRay player, HD cable box or satellite box you need to set the resolution in the source not the TV. The TV only diplays what it receives..Hopefully that was clear...

Insignia? 37 720p Flat Panel LCD HDTV will not

Power-cycle the unit (turn it off and unplug for several minutes). If you're unable to power the unit on successfully, the TV probably requires repairs. In home service can be obtained by calling 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S. or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada.

Sceptre LCD TV power come on, but there is no picture or sound.

There are two easy fixes you can try. Both require you to take the back panel off. If you are not comfortable doing this, take it to a repair shop.
Place the TV face down on a soft/solid surface.
After you get the back panel off, there are three silver boxes. There are white and black wires leading from the off switch to the top silver box. Take the cover off that box.
Inside is a ceramic fuse. Test that fuse. If it is blown, your local electronics shop can find a replacement.
If not, disconnect the white and black wires from the PC board. Remove the 6 screws holding it in place.
Look for scorch marks under the board.
Cut a thick piece of plastic and tape id down over the scorch marks.
Re-attach the board with the six screws and re-connect the black and white wires.

Turn the power switch to the OFF position and plug in the TV.
Turn on the power switch while WATCHING the board you just removed.
If you hear a sizzle, turn off the switch and get a thicker piece of plasic.
If not, the TV should come back on.
Re-assemble the silver box and put the back on.

Hope this helps.

I had the exact same issue. I bought a new tv for my family room and moved the Sceptre to a seldom used location. When I did turn the Sceptre on after a couple of months, it was good as new. The dark areas disappeared completely

Replacing Sceptre Power supply

The attached pictures are the back of our TV which is a Sceptre X30SV NAGA III. In ours the power supply is inside the vertical panel on the back right of the TV. The plug goes in the bottom of the panel and you remove the panel with the horizontal louvers with 4 screws to get at the power supply. A replacement power supply is from Delta Electronics part number ADP 180CB B , 24 Volts 7.5 amps 180 Watts that we reordered from here:
