Question about Sceptre X9G-NagaIV 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen went Blank (Black) with no Power Indicator

I Puchased a Sceptre X9G NagaV 19" LCD Monitor just over a year ago and have used it continuously since - I do Catalog Design and Web Page Design freelance from my home in the evenings - using windows xp professional - all this to say - i was looking at a layout one evening and my monitor just went black - there was no weather issues to cause it to blow - i have everything hooked thru a battery backup system anyways and i checked everything i could check - conections and power switches included - i tried the monitor on an older computer that my step daughter has in her room and there was still no power or display - i called Sceptre technical support and they told me that it would cost $100 labor and $35 shipping to get them to even look at it - one suggestion was given - trash it and buy a new one - but i have problems with that because i feel it could be something simple that i am not thinking of - and i do love my monitor - any thoughts on the matter???? what could cause it to just go black all of the sudden - would a DVI Connection help bring it back to life??? I really don't know much about that. I did try other connectors from some older CRT units with no response (could be due to trying a CRT Connector with an LCD Monitor????) - i don't know about going out and purchasing a new connector if that is not what the problem is - but that may be the only way to work thru it - trial and error???

Re: Screen went Blank (Black) with no Power Indicator

The VGA cable for a CRT monitor is the same as the VGA cable for an flatscreen monitor. The VGA protocol hasn't changed between the two technologies, so if you tried it with a different known working cable and it still didn't work, then it is the monitor, and not the cable.

Does the monitor's power led turn on? If not, it could be a power supply issue. Unfortunately lcd monitors are not very user-servicable. There isn't much in there that you can touch if you crack it open.

The monitor gone blank white light nothing else

Check this FixYa thread:

It might be a loose cable or perhaps the video controller is bad. If the unit is out of warranty, you might be able to try to fix the cable.

X9g komodo v screen just turned blank (white)

Go to ebay, type X9g kimidi logic board. Usually, some seller might have pulled working parts from other monitors and sell them individually. If you cannot find them, google "buy x9g komodo logic board". Some website, I'm quite sure will sell them.

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.
