Sceptre X7G komodo II Power light and screen flash about every second. Could it be the blanking circuit?

Look for bad caps with domed tops as shown in my pictures here:
should repalce the caps in a set.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Cannot use the 5 push-bars on X7G-NagaV to reduce the pink (red in) the background. Do you have instructions for which button to push & the sequence? Thanks

Please check to make sure that the pins on both ends of the VGA cable are OK and seted properly on bothe ends.
There is no adjustment for color casting on the screen (redish, greenish, or bluish cast).
You may have problem in the monitor or the video card.

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.

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!

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 =)
