I have a sceptre x42gv komodo 42 lcd tv for about three years, and lately the tv has had problems recieving the signal from the hdmi port to the DVR. it would show the picture in a very very dim light with no sound, or have sound and no picture. sometimes the HDCP warning on the tv would show, but I know there is no HDCP problems. now when I turn on the tv it doesnt show any picture and makes a buzzing noise. I want to know how to tell if this is a power supply issue

Check the TV with another HDMI stuff, like a DVD player or a playstation 3 or something. If it still gives you the same problem then you know it's the TV. If it doesn't then it means something is wrong with your DVR. If it's the TV most likely you'll need to open it up and see which part is broken. A simple diagnostic is opening the back and seeing if any capacitors are blown. If those small capacitors are bulging that means they're toast and needs to be replaced. I know that you can also buy parts from Sceptre, so maybe see which part is broken and buy it from them to replace it?

The back of my TV says X42gv-naga. Is the naga and komodo the same tv? same remote control?


If you wish to buy its original remote control, you have to contact the authorized service center. If you wish to buy a universal remote control, you should know about, which brand remote control have setup code to your TV/device brand. You should first make sure about the number of digits in the codes to your device have. There are 3-digit, 4-digit, 5-digit and even 2-digit codes. You can get this detail by the code list attached to every universal remote control. The brand name of the remote control you select isn't a matter; but, its code list should have setup codes to your TV/device brand, otherwise you can't set it up with your device. Check this link and note which brand remote control have set-up codes to your device brand, and buy that brand remote control, according to availability. .

I have a sceptre television and when I connect it to the comcast box the sound goes mute


The first troubleshooting step would be to play around with the audio and audio output settings on the Comcast receiver. If you have it connected to your television with an hdmi cable the output should be changed to hdmi. If it is set on bitstream change it to pcm. If you have the choice of setting it on 48khz or 96khz then do so. It is in the Comcast receiver's settings if you are getting sound when connecting other devices to the television.

My x42 screen turns blue for a few seconds and then from the bottom of the display it quickly blanks. You can still hear the sound but the picture remains blank. I have tried to change sources but it...


The problem can be bad backlight inverter board or it is not getting the 24vdc from the power supply. Look inside to see if it has bad caps with bulging tops. Also check the power supply output voltages, you should have 5vdc, 12vdc, and 24vdc.

NO REMOTE


Hi there. The actual button option that you will need to use for this adjustment will be the aspect button and, unfortunately, this button is only on the remote and not on the TV itself. If there is a control panel located on one of the sides of this set, you may be able to push the menu button here and navigate your way threw the menus screen to the aspect option. I suspect you will need the remote.

please rate and God bless..
