I have same problem... just went off warranty and they won't cover it.. they want $100 for repair plus $35 shipping plus I have to pay to ship it to them... For $179 I can buy a new 19" with 3 year warranty...I wouldn't buy another Sceptre at half the price

I have a 19" Sceptre Comodo display. After 3 years it got the problem everybody complains about. Took it apart yesterday.
There are 4 capacitors in a row on the power supply board (it has a socket for the power cord and is covered by a metal shield. The caps are barrel-like things standing upright on the side opposite to the power cord socket.) Two of them are 470 uFx 25 V, they are next to each other. In my case, one of them popped up and another one was bloated. I pulled out the power supply board (make sure you unplug the power cord and press the power button do discharge the high voltage caps before messing with your monitor) after disconnecting all sockets (mark'em!). I assume that you have new caps handy (I paid $2.10 for a pair at a local electronics store), they must have the same capacity and voltage rating. Now grab a soldering iron, remove old caps, and put new ones in. You must observe polarity! (Usually "minus" pin is labeled on the cap's side. Mark down "minus" and "plus" pins location of old caps and put the new caps in exactly the same way! Otherwise, you can blow the caps.) If you are not used to work with a soldering iron, hire somebody or buy a new monitor. Check the quality of the work (no shorts, solid contacts, etc), assemble the monitor back and may be it will work (did for me). If it does, you put one monitor less into the city dumpster, be proud to get a working monitor for less than $5, and force you mother-in-law to take this shiny new replacement display she just bought back to the store.
Of course I do not guarantee that my procedure will work for and you can use it at your own risk only (i.e. I am not liable for any damages).
