Question about Sceptre x22wg Gamer Monitor

Open Question

Sceptre x22 monitor doesn't work.

I have a Sceptre x22wg LCD and it does not read any input sources. I see a lot of people complaining that the screen turns off, however mine continues to display "no signal" after I plug in a video source (I have tried vga, dvi and hdmi, all with the same result). After Sceptre told me that it would be $100 +shipping to fix, I decided to open it myself and take a look. To me nothing looks obviously wrong - does anyone have a clue what the problem may be?

    I have same problem first my dvi port went out only 2 months old and couldnt afford to send back for replacement as it was a gift and no longer had the box it come in. Then a year later it has died all together no picture at all. I opened mine up to find a bad chip right above the hdmi port if i could find one of these logic boards I would just replace myself and not deal with sceptre and thier crappy product and customer support.

    My Hdmi went out after a month, dvi went out after 3 months, vga went out after a year and shortly after, it just stopped turning on. $348 for this pos. Never buy sceptre...ever. I'm now using my Tv and can't read anything without the magnifier...stupid.

SOURCE: HDMI/DVI input problems

You could try opening the housing, with the power cord unplugged. Find the location on the circuit board where the HDMI/DVI port interface with the circuit card. Check the condition of the solder joints and look for signs of a cold joint or bad connection where the sockets connect. If you find bad solder joints simply resolder them with a low wattage soldering Iron no larger than 30 to 40 watts. Make sure you do not accidently solder any of the pins together causing a short circuit. Use the thinest 60/40 lead/tin rosen core solder. You can get this cheap at radio shack. If this is the case you will be up and running in no time.
Also I'm sure you already tried this but make sure you set the T.V. to get the signal from the proper port. You do this in most cases by hitting the source button on the remote or finding the option to select input source under the main menu somewhere. If you somehow over looked this, Try this first and your problem will be solved. If you need more help feel free to contact me. I will answer any of the questions you may have.
If you could please remember to rate this solution after we are done diagnosing your problem

SOURCE: X22WG-gamer sceptre 22" monitor won't power on

Your monitor has 3 or 4 blown caps right next to the power plug. They are CapXon 470uf25v. Just open the back and remove the power board, desolder, and replace the 3 or 4 caps put it back together and it should go back to working. This a typical problem with the Sceptre gamer, HP1706, and the HP1903. And guess what they all have the same caps blown in almost the same place.NOTE: When seperating the case the power led is glued to the front frame. Take your time if you rush you will break a cable wire or plug.

SOURCE: My Sceptre x22wg-Gamer Monitor isn't getting any power, HELP!!!

I have two of the X22WG monitors, both dead. The power supply in this model is apperently plauged with a common error. The problem is close to the +5V and +12V output connector (Far right corner, with power plug against you). Two out of the four small caps are blown. Replace those, and it should be fine. C551 and C552.

My sceptre x22wg monitor has recently been turning off when turned on, how can i fix this? i use this for a dual monitor setup so this is very frustrating to me


Make sure windows finds your monitor in your OS(operating system) Start<My Computer< right click on my computer and click properties< device manager < goto Monitors and see if windows finds it. If you have a graphics card, make sure the card has the latest driver installed from the webite.

My sceptre X22WG is no longer showing white screen but getting progressively darker blue. How can I get it back to a white screen?


Colour changes like this are either due to a failing graphics card, failing monitor or bad connection from the computer to the monitor.. with this monitor, I'd have it checked by a tv repairman

Openin case for sceptre monitor to try and fix (no screws?


The only tools you'll need to open up the X22's case are your hands and something like a plastic putty knife. First use your hands to pry the face plate away from the housing along one of the four sides, that is, working from the middle where resistance is lowest. After you create a gap, insert the the edge of the putty knife and forcibly slide it toward one of the corners. This will separate that portion of the face plate. Do the same for the second corner. Now one side is free. Do the same for the other three sides. After you remove the face plate you'll see 4 screws that pin the lcd panel to the housing. After you remove them, be careful not to allow too much force to pull on the cable assembly that connects the panel to the mobo. Just reach in and squeeze the little metal clamps that fasten the connector to the panel. Do not try to disconnect it from the mobo from this angle. Disconnect it from the panel. Good luck.

Help! Any assistance or advice would be very much appreciated. I have a Sharp LL T19D1-B LCD Minitor purchased a little over 3 years ago. I had a mac plugged into one analogue input of monitor, screen...


This is the power supply inside the monitor itself. It is board that has three capacitors and they are blown out. It is a very inexpensive fix, if you are good with a soldering iron, if not let mw know and I will direct you to a company that can take care of this, for usually $30.00

Dead scepter x22 monitor


Had a Sceptre DCL9A model for mine. There are plastic snaps which hold the back and front covers together. After I took off the screws and detach the monitor stand, I slid a very small flat head screw driver along the sides until I found each snap. They should come loose easily with a slight twist of the screwdriver. There are about 5 on each side of the monitor (not counting the monitor). Do not try to force it as you can warp or crack the plastic.
