Question about Sceptre DCL9a

2 Answers

Turn on the monitor the screen says "out of range" in a small window and turns off

Tried this monitor on several computers with the same symptoms or just a blank screen with the signal LED lit steady.
Connect a different monitor to the same computer and the picture is perfect.

Changed out 3 of the power supply capacitors because they were leaking.

Although this message usually indicates your computer is outputting too much resolution for the monitor, I've noticed that this monitor also rejects 800x600 at a low refresh rate. Using a different monitor, set the computer to output 1280x1024 or 1024x768 at 60 Hz refresh rate, then connect the DCL9A.

Lower down resoluction and color quality to minimum on your pc, using 'display properties' in Windows. Connect the monitor back to pc with minimal settings. If it works is done.
If it still does not work there is a major problem with the monitor. In this case It should be opened and tested inside following schematics. In this case you may need to take the monitor to a service in your area.

From your description you have two or three different problems, power supply/inverter board issue and poor color. The cost to repair will be more than a new monitor, I recommend not going any further with this.

Says out of range when turned on


The default resolution for your video is set for some value the monitor can't support. You can try starting Windows in VGA mode. Press the F8 key several times when you turn the computer on and the manufacturer's logo screen appears. This will bring up the Windows startup menu and you can choose the VGA option. This starts Windows with video settings all monitors can handle so you can see your desktop. Then set some lower resolution and/or color depth. If you absolutely require the resolution your monitor can't handle, say for some game or graphics application, the only solution is to replace the monitor with one that can.

It could be a cable problem but more likely to be in the power saving settings on either the monitor setup or the computer. Remember when you plug in a different monitor windows knows about it and adjusts the settings to suit. It may be that windows is using the incorrect wakeup signal for that monitor. check you have the correct driver installed.

Monitor displays Msg. frequency out of range, screen is black


Start your computer and press the F8 when the manufacturer's logo screen is showing. This will bring you to the Windows startup menu. Pick "start in VGA mode" and windows will start up with video settings you monitor can handle. Then you can change your video settings so Windows will start normally with your monitor.

Problem with compaq MV 520 monitor


Your monitor is operating normally. After Windows starts it is setting the video resolution to something outside of the monitor's range. That's why you see the Windows splash screen, then the message from the monitor about the settings. Most likely the computer was used before with a monitor that had a wider range of resolutions available.

Restart the computer. When the manufacturer's logo screen appears, press the F8 key three or four times. This should get you a startup menu screen. Pick the option of starting in VGA mode, and Windows will start with video settings that your monitor supports.

Signal out of range


1: Signal out of range meas the monitor can't handle the input refresh rate. lcd and Tft monitors usually supports 60 and 75Hz refresh rates.
2: The Resolution you are using to view the desktop is too high, this number is depending on the size of the lcd monitor.
a 15" lcd usually runs with: 1024x768 with 60hz
a 17" lcd usually runs with: 1280x1024 with 60hz some of them supports 75hz.
a 19" lcd usually runs with 1600x1200 or higher.

I recommend reading the user manual if you have it, or checking the information on the manufacturer's website.

3: As a solution turn on your computer and after it passes the bios screen press F8 and select VGA mode.

This will enable 640x480 (standard vga) resolution and 60Hz refresh rate, after windows boots up you can change thease nmbers , and windows automatically asks for turning to 800x600 60Hz.

If you want to change the resolution go to: Right click on your desktop, select properties , select settings tab, and adjust the resolution on the bottom of the window.

Hope this helps, good luck.

I was adjusting picture on monitor and now picture completely messed up


  • Signal out of Range.
  • Out Of Scan Range
  • Horizontal frequency is out of range.
  • Cannot Display This Video Mode Out of Sync

This issue may occur if the signal from the video adapter exceeds the scan range of the monitor. The video adapter setting for updating the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor.
you should reinstall your video drivers in safe mode.

To restart in safe mode repeatedly press the F8 key during the computer startup. This will bring a menu where you'll be able to choose safe mode.

Input Signal Out Of Range


Some monitors have low resolution, that if it doesn't support that resolution then you'll expect an "input signal out of range" message on screen. try to boot on "safe mode" if it works then you have to lower your screen resolution at "display properties" if not then the monitor has a defective data cable. ;)
