Question about Sceptre X9G-NagaIV 19" LCD Monitor
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???
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.
