Have had this monitor only a few months- maybe 4 or 5 and never any problems but all of a sudden the screen turned yellowish while I was just reading email. I hadn't done anything -just reading- and then later on the screen turned back to the normal white.
went to the resolution and color area of control panel and tried different settings but it didn't make any difference. Could this mean my video card is going out?
My previous monitor didn't have the yellow problem it just died of old age.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Re: Sceptre X76NAGA VI Monitor
It could be a bad connection somewhere. Try checking:
-Where the video cable plugs into the PC. Remove and check for bent pins, corrosion and replace and firmly reconnect using the thumbscrews on the connector.
-Where the video cable plugs into the monitor. Some LCD monitors have removable cables some don?t; if yours does follow the same procedure outlined above.
-If your video card is not part of your motherboard it could be the video card not being seated properly. Remove it and reinsert the card.
-If still nothing I would try entering the monitor configuration menu (using the buttons on the monitor) and reset it to factory settings.
-Next step would be connecting your monitor to another PC to see if the problem follows it. If it does I would immediately contact the manufacturer for a warranty replacement making sure you read your list of what you?re already tried.
-If the problem doesn?t follow the monitor then that points to your video card. If that?s the case let us know what you?ve found out and we?ll go from there. Good luck and please don?t forget to rate this post.

My Sceptre Komodo 19 would turn on for less than a second than turn off. Eventually, I could get it to stay up. But after a month, I couldn't get it to stay on anymore.
I found the solution on this website. There are some bad capacitors... 4 of them for about $2 worth. I replaced all four and the monitor works fine again. They are soldered in. They are polarized; they need to be installed the right way.The white stripe goes towards the “wall”.
2 are 470uf 25v and 2 are 1200uf 10v.
I ordered mine for about $10 with shipping from Mouser.com 661-EKZE250ETD471MJ1 and 647-UHE1A122MPD
hey usually this happens due to static try to power cycle the monitor by disconnecting all the cables from the monitors then connect teh cables back one by one and see if it works and if not yes get teh monitor replaced
My problem sounds equivelant: The problem is that it will power down after 15 minutes, then take 1/2 hour or more to power back up!I believe I have solved my problem with my X7G! I remember seeing a direction on the only direction papaer I got with it that told me to Turn off ALL POWER SAVING WINDOWS SETTINGS! I think the monitor is set to care for all the monitor/power saving itself. I am going to try it and will get back to you, or just try it yourselfs!
Yes, its not the bulbs, its the inverters that are build right into the power module and all that is wrong with that is one or more bad capacitors (bulging or burst) so don't waste $100 getting a new module from Sceptre, fix it yourself (if you have the skills and tools - which wasn't much - a new cap, some flux core solder, and iron, maybe some desoldering braid and then basically a little desoldering and then resoldering). I got lucky and only had to replace one 330uF 16V cap that was bulging and mine is all fixed. For more specifics check under the Sceptre 19" monitors where some very detailed repair procedures are posted.
