Scepter 24" LCD Display Issue

My 24" LCD Scepter Monitor is having some problems. I will start up my computer and it will show an image for just a few seconds then will shut off. The little blue light is still on and is not effected. This looks like a sleep mode issue to me... but I have a smaller monitor next to it and when my big monitor is black if I can figure out exactly where to put my mouse I can still drag programs over to the smaller one. I am sometimes able to restart my monitor and the image will appear again for a longer period of time but will still just disapear.

    Ya its not a cable problem, but I think I might of fixed it a second ago. I believe that my logitech 5.1 surround sound woofer was to close to the actual computer and was pulling amps from the computer. so far no problems thanks though for trying! I appreciate it!

Sounds to me like the board has failed in the monitor. Try swappng the cables and working out if its a cable problem or monitor problem, but sounds like the monitor is kapput.

This is the strangest thing I've ever seen. I have a Gateway FPD1975W TFT Monitor and its always worked great. The other day it went into a sleep mode via windows, and now it wont boot up the input...


Hello,

Your monitor problem is causes by the power supply. What is happening is the power supply voltages are not stable, just enough to power the unit up. When you connect it to a video signal the power demands slightly increase and the power supply can't handle it. This is a very common problem with LCD after a few years of use. The issue with the power supply is the capacitors have started to fail. These parts are used to filter the output voltage and when they start to fail the outputs start rippling hence the problem you are having. Here is a link to a repair article that shows how to repair the Gateway FPD1975W monitor.

Hi My monitor that i have used to let us shut off the monitor manually, it no longer does it reads key lock whenever we try to turn it off and if we try to adjust any settings it will read key lock in the...


I'm not aware of any ability to lock the keys on any monitor I've seen. I've not used a lot of Scepter monitors but it seems like a rather pointless option to have. So unfortunately the monitor seems to be malfunctioning and will have to be repaired or replaced.
The only thing i can suggest trying is unplugging the monitors power cable for a few seconds in hopes it will reset the monitors control buttons.

Hp flat panel monitor comes on shows logon and then blank screen


Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on?
If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps.
If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

When i turn on my monitor it shows my desktop then shuts off after 10 seconds...never stays on


elainenemeth, Hi, Tell me more! How old is this LCD monitor? Is it out of warranty? Did the "SHUT-DOWN-IMMEDIATE" problem occur without warning? Did the BenQ display a "perfect" image the day before? Did you actually count----1001, 1002----1010 and then it shut down, after pushing the monitor on button. Did you do the "flashlight" test? With monitor connected to a "known-good", fully booted pc with Win Desktop displayed, TURN ON the monitor! Did it display the desktop for 1-2-10 seconds ? What did you see or not see when you pointed the flashlight at different angles about 1-2" inches from the now dark (black) screen? Get back to me with your results. I will offer the best advice possible to you as a consumer/user of LCD/FPD monitor. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com Bye for now.

LCD Shuts down


The monitor screen may be OK, but the monitor electronics are not. YOu state that the comuter works fine with a different monitor. That leaves out the video card. If you reall ywant confirmation of a bad  monitor, Try it on another computer ansdI am willing to bet that it  will again shut off.  Take it to a shop for repair or replace it.
