Monitor reads - "no vga signal". Thus, I have no picture. It just stopped working
Monitor was working fine until 2 days ago. Now, it will not click on to the picture when turned. The message comes up for a few seconds - no vga signal - and then goes dark and monitor clicks off. The system has only been used about 6 weeks.

This can occur due to many reasons...the simplest of those is... Damaged monitor signal cable...results in improper signal transmission Also check if ths is a problem with the monitor or VGA card...Just connect it to another computer...If it works then its VGA card problem otherwise its a monitor problem.If you are good in electronics then the problem is 1)You have the typical convergence failure of the convergence correction IC's which need to be replaced
2)Cpacitors on the CRT are damaged and need to be replaced..
If you are not familiar with electronics pls dont attempt a repair as it is a high voltage device and the risk of electric shock wil be high.Just drop into a service center if this is the case
It's not your monitor. It's your computer. If you see a display on the monitor, it means it's working. (and you do) Your computer is not sending a signal to the monitor. If you are working with a laptop, you can just press the Fn key/special function key combo to send the signal to the external monitor. If you are using a desktop, then you need to do some troubleshooting.
The picture board on your monitor is malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on and it randomly stop the dispaly signals, it means the picture board of your monitor
has developed fault.
The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer
within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because
the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate
Have you tried any other monitor connected to your computer since your current problem? Check your connections, make sure your VGA cable/DVI cable are in good condition. If none of that works try to RMA it to sceptre if your still within the 1 year period.
If you know how to open it up and get to the power supply you will find three capacitors 2-820uf and 1-330 @ 25vdc 105o.they will have puffed up tops replace them. FYI the monitor has a 3 year warranty.
The simple patch that I found (same problem) was to start by using any old monitor that I could borrow to set up my Dell Laptop.
After getting the Laptop booted on a regular monitor I right clicked on the desktop and went to properties then to the settings tab.
Here I found the dual monitor settings (#2 will usually be dis-abled by default.)
Click on #2 monitor and set the resolution to the lowest number (800 x 600 works well)
Then I clicked on "make this monitor my primary monitor"
As soon as I clicked apply the PC Windows screen appeared on the Polaroid TV screen
Earlier I had set the secondary monitor as "extend this screen to this monitor"
This also worked but I had to "drag the current screen to the right all the way off the
"borrowed monitor" until it appeared on the TV screen. The mouse pointer will be there also.
At first it took a little getting used to but in a few minutes I was up and running.
Hope this helps your situation
