Question about Sceptre X37sv-Naga 37 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Sceptre X37SV no blue light

My Sceptre X37SV simply quit, no blue light. The PS fuse is good, and I have 120 VAC at the PS. The two caps next to the power connector appear to have done some arcing, but they act like caps to the meter. I could probably figure this out if I had a print of the power supply, but I'm kinda shooting in the dark...

I don't think those are capacitors. They are varistors and (as a pair) they are in series between the mains and the load. Current flows through them so if they have dry-jointed then you have an open circuit and no current flow. This seems to be a recurrent problem. I'm trying to locate a replacement but I can't find the characteristics of the SCK 085 listed anywhere.

My guess is that this is a US problem only. In other countries with higher mains voltage, the power supply draws a lower current and doesn't cause the varistors to overheat.

Blue power light flashs and won't turn off and has no picture or sound


It may have bad solder joints in the power supply board, look at the solder joints on the Thernistor and DC filter caps for leaky/domed tops.

Sceptre X37sv-Naga powers on no picture


Do you get sound? If you do, then the problem will be in the backlight inverter board. You should have 24vdc presents on the main power supply which supplys the power to the inverter board. Please verify that is the case.

Check the power supply modular cable connection that is by itself in the upper right corner.  On the one my son-in-law has the double yellow jumper wire that connects to this plug in two locations was loose (not properly inserted) in the modular connector and had worked it way out.
