I have just purchased this monitor from a thrift shop..it looked new...the bags were not opened...the power cord still in the original bag..etc....
I plugged it into my computer and it came on for the windows loading screen then went black..the lights seem to be going through some kinda scan but will not stop and the monitor will not come on(light is on but no picture)Is there anything I need to do besides just plugging it in, like drivers etc...I am using windows XP for my OS and the monitor has a date of 2001 on the sticker. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Sceptre D50X black screen
If a monitor shows a normal screen at startup but goes bad after the Windows logo disappears, your Windows video setting is probably not compatible with the monitor. You can start Windows in safe mode to select a compatible resolution for your monitor.

The tv that take a long time to turn on.The cause is the tv power supply board,it not giving the tv the wright power voltages anymore.The power supply board,that the board,where the power a/c cord plug into it.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

When the backlight does not stay on for more than a second, the problem is usually the backlight power supply board failure. Typical failures are blown capacitors, or transistors. A electronic repair shop should be able to fix it.
Power supply will be the first place to look, make usre that it does put out 5vdc for logic and 12~18vdc for the backlight inverter circuits. Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder jopints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SCEPTRE monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague http://www.badcaps.net
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
the VGA cable for a CRT monitor is the same as the VGA cable for an flatscreen monitor. The VGA protocol hasn't changed between the two technologies, so if you tried it with a different known working cable and it still didn't work, then it is the monitor, and not the cable.
Does the monitor's power led turn on? If not, it could be a power supply issue. Unfortunately lcd monitors are not very user-servicable. There isn't much in there that you can touch if you crack it open.
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).
i fixed this problem by unplugging the monitor, unplugging the video cables. Then hold down the power button while plugging it back in. Release power button and then press power button for on. It worked then. I got the icon for no signal, i plugged back in my monitors. Sceptre X9W
