Question about Sceptre X7G Komodo II 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Open Question

Hello my sceptre was just turned on and the bottom half of the screen is a metallic gray. My regular screen saver can be seen on the top half with no problem. When I move the cursor it will go behind the bottom half gray portion. I have turned it on and off multiple time times, plus I disconnected the electricity and no change. We are unable to see the task bar as well. What does this sound like? What can we do to fix it?

SOURCE: 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.

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

You have dying power supply due to bad DC filter caps, it will cause more damages if you do not start checking them out.

Grey side bar on desk top screen


The picture or image you have chosen does not fit the screen. Go to your system preferences, Desktop &Screen Saver, click on the desktop tab and change the image to "fit the screen" or a variety of other options.

    I can't figure out how to hook up hose attachment to dyson 07


    You have a reversible wand on the DC07. You have to separate the wand from the hose first, then turn it around and reconnect it. Once that is done you will be able to use the attachments on the end of the wand. You can also connect your attachments to the hose.
    To separate the wand:
    1) Take the wand off the back of the machine
    2) Place one hand on the Handle and one hand on the gray flexible hose.
    3) Push the flexible hose down. You will see a long metal rod appearing. Push until the hose clicks into place at the bottom of the metal rod.
    4) You'll see a half-moon shape button with a picture of a lock on the solid gray plastic part at the top of the hose - push it, this will separate the wand from the hose.
    5) Turn the wand around
    6) Push the purple wand cap with the holes in it back, it exposes a short dark gray pipe, about an inch in length
    7) Connect the hose to the short pipe
    8) Attach your tools to the top of the metal rod and have fun
