Question about Sceptre x22wg Gamer Monitor
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?

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.

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.

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.
