    I have the same problem and have read that I need to replace a capacitor on my power inverter board. I just don't know which one.
    I've removed the circuit board that the power cord plugs into (power inverter?) and I see several doodads that could be capacitors. I think that with help I'm capable of replacing the problem component. Can someone just upload a picture of where it is? Or email it to mbandfield@hotmail. Thanks.

Order of the connectors on the X7G-NAGAVI?

OK, you will have four connectors (each one with pink and white wires), there are two set of the connectors, two are above the transformer, two below the transformer. The monitor uses four lamps, two for the top side of the screen, two for the bottom side of h screen. You can plug either one of the pair of the connector to the top group of the connector, same for the bottom group of the connectors.

X7G shows video for 1 second then goes black, any replacement boards available?

Hate to tell you that replacing parts on a monitor would be very hard not only to find the parts but it would be very costly, I would recommend scrapping it and buy a 90$ refab off tiger direct or something, the only thing you can really fix on a monitor is perhaps a dead pixel, other than that its not worth it.

My Scepter LCD Monitor just blinks when it's turned on

Open it up and the first place to look will be the power supply section, look for bad caps with bulging top/bottomseal, post back what you see so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps:

Sceptre X7G-Naga VI

My problem sounds equivelant: The problem is that it will power down after 15 minutes, then take 1/2 hour or more to power back up!I believe I have solved my problem with my X7G! I remember seeing a direction on the only direction papaer I got with it that told me to Turn off ALL POWER SAVING WINDOWS SETTINGS! I think the monitor is set to care for all the monitor/power saving itself. I am going to try it and will get back to you, or just try it yourselfs!

Check some of the other posts as it is probably just a bad capacitor or two and very easy to fix if you can do that sort of thing. I did and mine is back up and running.

Sceptre X7G nagaVI problem

For most of the problems above you will find it is bad capacitors on the power board sending unstable power accross to the controller board.

For the last posted problem (Comment by Guest, posted on Jan 02, 2008) you have a dodgy inverter circuit that needs to be repaired.

Both faults should be fairly cheap to have taken care of at your local TV repair shop. You may need to call a few in your area not just for a quote, but also to see if they are willing to work on an LCD monitor.

Hope that helps you all =)
