    Thank you for the advice. I had this same problem some time ago and I just don't recall how I fixed it but I will give your suggestions a try.

    Here's the thing: I switched the cord that powers the hard drive with the cord that powers the monitor and voila! The thing lit up like a christmas tree! Thank you again .

Let's rule out the obvious first. It may be that a power surge has blown out the power supply on the monitor but let's check the outlet as well. Plug a lamp into the same outlet that the monitor is plugged into. If the lamp works, the monitor may have gotten zapped. If it doesn't work, plug the monitor into a known working outlet. If it turns on, the outlet is the problem. If it doesn't, your power supply may have gotten zapped in a power surge. This is assuming you don't have it all plugged into a power strip. Perchance would you be using a UPS (uninterruptable power supply)? If not, it's a good idea to purchase one for the next such occurence. You really don't need a heavy duty one. Just one that will give you about 5 minutes or so to power down after you have saved your work so nothing is lost. They also protect against such spikes and surges. Let me know what you find out.

My Scepter LCD Monitor just blinks when it's turned on


Open it up and the first place to look will be the power supply section, look for bad caps with bulging top/bottomseal, post back what you see so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Check for a bulged capacitor. They should be flat on top, look for one, possibly two with a "bulge" on the top :)

Scepyre 17 in X7


This board is out of my Sceptre X9G Komodo. The 740uf capacitors are clearly marked 25V. The 1200uf Caps are 10V. I ordered parts for mine to try. The darker 740 has a slightly "popped" top.
470 is about 10mm dia X 16-17mm long
1200 is about 10mm dia X 20? long
two leads on each about 5mm apart. They are soldered to the board.
