Question about Sceptre S1902D 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Sceptre S1902D LCD 19" Monitor... When initially powered up, the screen is on for about a sec or two, then goes black. If I turn the monitor on and off quickly, it usually comes on and stays on after the 4th or 5th attempt. Is this indicative of a bad inverter board or bad fluorescent backlights? Thanx

    Just further info on the above problem.

    I have pulled the monitor apart and looked at the Power PCB and the other PCB. There doesn't appear to be any blown caps. All the caps look in good shape.

Your computer may not be seeing your second monitor. Go to your display settings and see if you computer is seeing monitor 2.
A fast way to check is to plug this monitor in as your primary on the computer to see if it works.

It can be the problem in the backlight inverter board or the power supply problem. You need to open it up and start looking for bad caps with bulging top first. Post back what you see inside. See example of failed monitors due to bad caps:

You need to use a plastic scribe to run around the edge of the monitor seam. A plastic scribe is a tool that looks like a knife, but it is not really sharp. Pry into the seam on the monitor and gently but firmly work around the edge until it pops apart.

Monitors work well for a while then have trouble booting up

It is a symptom that like T.V's usually manifest before they go busted. I also had that kind of problem before. Then after 4 to 5 months, my monitor just has a black screen. It powers on, but still a black screen.

My sceptre monitor S1902D won't turn on just stopped

If the monitor has no power at all then you have a dead power board, or a broken power cord, test also a different wall AC outlet.

If instead there is a flashing led on front of the monitor, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1 The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours, sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occurr suddenly are a blown capacitor on power board, the inverter board powering up backlight lamp has blown, or a fault on main lcd controller board.
check also the video cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

Check connectors, try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.
