    Classic case of bad capacitors in the power supply board. The two offending capacitors are marked C5 and C12, a pair of electrolytic polarized ones next to the transformer. You can tell they're bad in my case because the ends are bulging, the classic sign of a popped capacitor.

    Specs: 1000uF, 16V, 105C, 5/16" diameter

It can be the problem in the backlight inverter board or the power supply problem. You need to open it up and start looking for bad caps with bulging top first. Post back what you see inside. See example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

I have a 20 sceptre widescreen lcd monitor


Have you tried any other monitor connected to your computer since your current problem? Check your connections, make sure your VGA cable/DVI cable are in good condition. If none of that works try to RMA it to sceptre if your still within the 1 year period.

It's these cheap power inverters! They blow out in 3 months.

This sounds like a typical case of bad electrolytic capacitors. You will either have to get it repaired or replace the bad capacitors yourself to solve this. But first see if it is still under warranty.

DCLCD 19" flatscreen won't turn on correctly


Same problem here, but after using the plugging/unplugging method it eventually stopped all together. So, I took it to a local monitor repair shop (AM Stereo, Seattle). The problem is a power supply issue where the capasitors go bad. They fixed the monitor by replacing the capacitors for $70. In there experience, all monitors, regardless of brand, tend to use the same cheap capacitors which fail. He replaced them with better quality capacitors which may make this monitor better than it ever was. I'm back in business with a great monitor!

Sceptre monitor will not return from idle.


The only workaround was to not use the DVI cable but to use the old VGA cable. You still get the same resolution.
I have a different ATI board, so I'm thinking it's an ATI+Sceptre on DVI input bug. Anyway, use the VGA cable, it'll work.
