Question about Sceptre x22wg Gamer Monitor

2 Answers

I have a Sceptre x22 gamer that has been serving me well for about two years. A week ago I started having trouble getting the monitor to ''Wake Up'' after the computer goes to sleep or when rebooting. It has become so bad recently that I had to turn the monitor on and wait 15 minutes before it would start to display anything. I don't think it is an issue with the inputs as there is usually a blue display that comes up whether anything is plugged in or not. Usually you are able to switch modes while nothing is plugged in, I.E. DVI , Digital, VGA. However the screen has ceased to display anything. The blue power light blinks and none of the controls give any response. Update: I plugged the monitor into another power cable and it started making a clicking sound. Couldn't tell if it was the speakers or not. This happens whenever I plug the monitor in now, a very regular click with a faint high pitch right before it, like clockwork.

    Had mines for about two years also. The most problems i had were the screen being frozen and i had to unplug the monitor and plug it back in to get it to respond. But two days ago it was working perfectly fine, and then yesterday i woke up to find that it would not respond or wake up to my mouse movement or keyboard pressing. I unplugged it and plugged it back in just to make sure it wasnt frozen and thats when i noticed a sound that seemed to occur whenever the power led was on. Everytime the power led turned off, the sound would also disappear. It seemed very high pitch also.

My problem with my Sceptre 22 Gamer monitor started today. I had a space lcd which I connected and the spare works fine (not a computer or connection problem).

It sounds like these monitors are somehow engineered to fail at the 2 year point.

I attached it to a spare computer that I booted into safe mode, but I did not even see a flicker on the screen. I left it alone and then all of the sudden I turned and noticed that the display was now working. I disconnected it from my spare computer and reconnected to my main desktop and the blue light on the monitor started just kept blinking and the monitor never powered up.

I am pissed. Hopefully it can be fixed somehow.

Warcryofjuda, One of the guys that I work with brought in a small screen Sceptre DTV/DVI/VGA +audio unit. and it also has a optional TV/tuner module. mod S1701DTV with side mounted speakers. The viewable screen size is 14"w x 8.75"h . Oh! First things first! Turn it OFF and leave it off. Disconnect it and put it in a safe place for now. IT'S BROKE!! It will not work today, and it will not work tomorrow or the next day. Got that? Ok! Now I want to know if you would like to work together with me and explore both of these monitors and possibly come up with a fix for them? Please get back to me via my email with what ever approach you feel is best for you. We have already opened up our unit and I will try to attach some pic's for you to compare your unit with. I'm louie12fix on fixya or

The monitor will run fine for awhile, then the screen will just go blank, this seems to happen with the DVI cable connected to our two desktops with good video cards. I've been using it all week connected...

Check the monitor's internal setup program.

Some monitors have a preset for idle timeout. Of course, as long as you're using the computer, this feature should not be activated and the timer should start over each time you perform any activity on the monitor.

If this is the problem, it should be a simple matter to turn off the time-out feature or set the time to a very high number so that it seldom (if ever) takes effect.

Monitor will not turn on blue light flashing bottom right hand of monitor

I'm having the same problem. Had the monitor for almost 2 years and everything was working fine until this week. The blue light would blink, then after an unpredictable period of time, the monitor would turn on. Seems like it needs to warm up or something. I suspect it has something to do with the capacitors not charging inside. Somewhat disappointed with Sceptre. I suppose I should be thankful that I got 2 years out of it.

Openin case for sceptre monitor to try and fix (no screws?

The only tools you'll need to open up the X22's case are your hands and something like a plastic putty knife. First use your hands to pry the face plate away from the housing along one of the four sides, that is, working from the middle where resistance is lowest. After you create a gap, insert the the edge of the putty knife and forcibly slide it toward one of the corners. This will separate that portion of the face plate. Do the same for the second corner. Now one side is free. Do the same for the other three sides. After you remove the face plate you'll see 4 screws that pin the lcd panel to the housing. After you remove them, be careful not to allow too much force to pull on the cable assembly that connects the panel to the mobo. Just reach in and squeeze the little metal clamps that fasten the connector to the panel. Do not try to disconnect it from the mobo from this angle. Disconnect it from the panel. Good luck.

My Sceptre x22wg-Gamer Monitor isn't getting any power, HELP!!!

I have two of the X22WG monitors, both dead. The power supply in this model is apperently plauged with a common error. The problem is close to the +5V and +12V output connector (Far right corner, with power plug against you). Two out of the four small caps are blown. Replace those, and it should be fine. C551 and C552.

Dead scepter x22 monitor

Had a Sceptre DCL9A model for mine. There are plastic snaps which hold the back and front covers together. After I took off the screws and detach the monitor stand, I slid a very small flat head screw driver along the sides until I found each snap. They should come loose easily with a slight twist of the screwdriver. There are about 5 on each side of the monitor (not counting the monitor). Do not try to force it as you can warp or crack the plastic.
