Re: getting the monitor apart

It is clipped on, or there is a hidden screw underneith a sticker or something.

They make these things hard to disassemble for a reason. There is very little you can do one you've got it open. There's almost nothing inside that can be serviced by any normal user.

I recently acquired a sceptre x9g Naga V monitor which has developed a problem. It produces a wonderful image which may last 5 min or 5 sec, then goes black. If I turn it off or unplug the monitor the...

It may have dying power supply due to bad DC filter caps like the 17" version.

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:

Hi dgp1952, Check with if you want a repair. Something is wrong with your backlight or the circuit supplying power to it. If your technically endowed, you may want to open the monitor case and clean the dust and lint from around the circuits using a Small paint brush to sweep away any built up dust. Dust can cause the circuitry to heat up faster and put the power supply into Clamp mode. Clamp mode will turn the supply off to certain circuits which may be the reason your display is going black after 5 minutes.
