Question about Sceptre DCL 7A 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
For the last few days, my monitor has been misbehaving. When it goes into standby mode (after long period of inactivity), or after powering down, it has a very hard time waking up. Pressing the power button will cause it to flash on once (for about a quarter second -- frames do update during this time), and then off again. After flashing off, the power light remains on, but the screen is completely blank. IIn the past, it's done this and I've had to press it a couple times for it to snap out of this mode, but now it seems to be permanent. I've pressed it hundreds of times (on then off then on...) with no luck.
It's definitely a monitor problem, as the problem persists when plugged into other computers. I can't see any color that would suggest just a lamp problem (but couldn't see real well with the flashlight). I tried adjusting the resolution within windows, with no luck.
Any ideas? I'm close to resorting to the dropkick method of repair.
This is probably a RAM memory trouble, you have to try with 2 ways: 1) Try with another RAM memory to start your pc, 2) Verify the memory using a DOS software to check it.
Also, you could reset the BIOS using the jumper settings established on the PC Motherboard Manual to try if the BIOS is fail, or update the PC BIOS.
At last, You must check the temperature generated on the devices, if it's warm it means that the Hardware needs to add more fan coolers, or deactivate Overclocking. The overheat cause this fail too.

I have the same problem with my AOC by Envision Peripherals brand LCD monitor. I have discovered several times that it does not function in the mornings, and after closer study I have seen time and time again that it will only turn on after the fireplace has been going and the house has warmed up. Temperature is the issue, but why, I have no idea.

I have the same problem with a 19" unit it just started the last month. If I unplug the power cord for 10 seconds then plug it in I can use it the rest of the day until i shut the system down again. I disabled "turn monitor off" in power settings so it will stay on. I too have tried it on different computers,it is in the monitor. No ideas, I am pricing out a 24" feom a different manufacturer.

I read that this problem is caused by a bad inverter board in monitor. We are about to try it. It also takes a while to show an image and if you restart cpu monitor starts normal but when first turned on in morning takes a while.
