Question about Sceptre 17" LCD Monitor
I have an X7 G-Naga VI 17" - LCD. I'm using a Windows XP based PC. I'm not sure what happened, but now, when I turn on my monitor, I can see for about 3 seconds, then the screen goes blank. The computer is still working, and the blue light on the monitor is still blue. There are no messages displayed on screen to tell me if something is set up wrong. I have no idea what to do.
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.

I had the same issue[of course] with my X7 G-Naga VI 17" - LCD. I thought I have posted the cure already, but here you go again: Go through Control Panel-Appearance/Themes-Choose Screen Saver-Power Control - NEVER TURN OFF MONITOR!! If you saved the 8.5"x11" Paper that came with your monitor, it tells you that you cannot control the power by anywhere besides what is done by the monitor itself. I wish I would have seen this issue sooner....I would have mailed you then!!

Just an update. this problem is assocaited with the inverters for the bulbs. not the bulbs themselves.

Theres a strong possibility that the backlight bulbs went out. I imagine you already trashed it though. This JUST happened to me. This model is supposed to have 4 backlight bulbs, your general florecent type. Well exactly general, but you can probably find bulbs of the rateing required at a hardware store.
This might help you out on replacing them, its a general guide but should suffice even for 4 bulbs. http://www.inventgeek.com/Projects/BacklightFix/overview.aspx
