Sceptre D50X black screen

I have just purchased this monitor from a thrift 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. Thanks Kenny

    Have had the screen working on our computer for over two years. Last night it just went black. It will come on for a second or two after you power off and back on again. Any suggestions?

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.

Sceptre Monitor P/N X7G-Komodo II displays for about 1 second at a time, then goes black. When I cycle monitor power, I see a perfect display for 1 second. Does anyone have a recommended solution?

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.

My monitor wont come on it will have a white screen for moments then go black

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:

I need a power cord for a Sceptre Model X5G Komodo7 LCD monitor. Please email: [email protected] THANK YOU!

power cord does it look the same as u have in the back of the computer ?
if yes .. get the same kind of power cord from a computer shop and that should work

Sceptre LCD - no display

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

Screen went Blank (Black) with no Power Indicator

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.

Sceptre X9G Komodo IV

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).


Sceptre X7g Monitor Flashing Red & Blue Lights. Blank Screen

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
