Question about Sceptre NagaIII X30SV 30 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Sceptre I have a great but cheap Sceptre... I watched it in the morning and when I returned home it would power on but the screen was black. I cycled thru the inputs and one shows up a blue screen for a moment then goes black. Do I need a new backlight or what could the problem be with this unit. It is quite a few years old. Maybe 3 years old.

    Yes i have exactly the same problem. When i turn it on a get a split second glimps of whatever media is playing then the screen goes black.

    Please help!!! I can't afford a repair, let alone a new TV. Ya know when these flat screens came out then were so expensive then they came down enough to where i was able to buy this for $1000.00 from Costco but i certainly can't afford to buy a new TV every 3 years. A TV has always been a product you buy and it lasts for years. You ended up giving it to your children when they move out and buy yourself a new one.



    Is there maybe some MFG refurbish program or something?

It sound like either a power or power connectivity issue. I recommend that you first complete a hard reset on the tv (unplug all power to the unit and accessories for at least two hours, sometimes more. Then plug the unit and accessories back in. If that does not work then I recommend using one of our premium services or searching for a local repair service search button located on this page. Just type in your zip code.

Thanks,

If you wan to do the repair yourself then go to our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/capacitors.htm and look at the pictures of what to look for in your monitor.

Sceptre LCD TV power come on, but there is no picture or sound.


There are two easy fixes you can try. Both require you to take the back panel off. If you are not comfortable doing this, take it to a repair shop.
UNPLUG IT.
Place the TV face down on a soft/solid surface.
After you get the back panel off, there are three silver boxes. There are white and black wires leading from the off switch to the top silver box. Take the cover off that box.
Inside is a ceramic fuse. Test that fuse. If it is blown, your local electronics shop can find a replacement.
If not, disconnect the white and black wires from the PC board. Remove the 6 screws holding it in place.
Look for scorch marks under the board.
Cut a thick piece of plastic and tape id down over the scorch marks.
Re-attach the board with the six screws and re-connect the black and white wires.

Turn the power switch to the OFF position and plug in the TV.
Turn on the power switch while WATCHING the board you just removed.
If you hear a sizzle, turn off the switch and get a thicker piece of plasic.
If not, the TV should come back on.
Re-assemble the silver box and put the back on.

Hope this helps.

The Sceptre TV do use the Sony codes. However, the cheap universal remotes do not have the buttons needed. The Volume Up/down and channel up/down are controlled with the circle of buttons (arrows) in the middle of the remote.
You can get an OEM remote from Sceptre. They still have them available. Sceptre is in California.
