Question about Sceptre 17" LCD Monitor

4 Answers

Screen goes blank

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.

    I TURN MY MONITOR ON AND IT SHUTS OFF 3 SECONDS LATER. WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX IT..

    Anybody find the resolution to this problem, besides a trash can? My X7G will go black, blue button flashes, can't turn it off. I power the computer down, then the light goes red, then it can be turned off and it's a **** shoot when I turn the computer back on, the monitor may or may not work!!! I have been to the Sceptre website, they do not support this monitor! Anybody know what's up with these monitors?

    I got the X7G-Naga 6 or Vl.I have sent a message to you guys be for and got an email that said i had to pay 100 dollars to get it fixed and the also said the warranty was out dated and that was a lie i did not even have it for a year an still not have had it for a year yet.I have two old monitors the big goofy ones they out lasted a flat screen,there to expensive to go out for no reason like that.The problem was when you turn the computer on the monitor turns on an off a few times then stays off an with a ringing noise coming from it, i turn my speakers off and i still hear the ringing it will stop sooner or latter.When i went to the back of the monitor to check it out it was really hot an smelt like it was burning.What i would like is a refund or a new monitor because this one seems like a defect monitor to me.

    my sceptre monitor works for about ten min and then shut blacks out. the power light remains blue. It will run again if I turn it off and on again for for a shorter and shorter periods. I looked at all the Capacitors on the power board and they all seem to be in good shape.

    any suggestions

    I have the same exact problem on two of the three that we have in the office. It's definately the power inverter board. I swapped it out and it did work. This seems to be a problem with sceptre and yes their warranty is horrible. I first experienced this problem a few months prior to warranty however that wasnt good enough. I cannot find a place that sells the power inverter board. If any of you have any ideas please share!

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

    Thanks for the rating. Just so you know the 2nd solution there was from me as well. The inverter had an overvoltage from a power leak. Symptom: a buzzing noise coming from the inverter module.

    The buzzing noise doesn't have to be present for it to be the problem, but if those backlights are coming on for any length of time they are fine.

    Sceptre will fix the problem for 100 bucks if its out of warrenty. Or you can send it to a place that fixes inverters (for less). Keep in mind some of them only take the inverter itself which means you would have to take the monitor apart yourself. The inverter in this model is a power/inverter board combo. If your not familar with electronics, theres a lot of stored energy that, even without being plugged in, can hurt you. The wires for the bulbs are easy to remove, the link between the display output and the board is more difficult to take off. I ended up having to fix a snipped wire (no thanks to my cat sneaking in and bumping my arm at the wrong moment)

    They can do a large number, buy a sceptre monitor isnt on the list.

    http://www.lcdrepair.us/repair.html
    This company will do sceptre monitors. Theres probably more out there, I recommend doing your own looking. maybe there is a company locally that can fix it for you.

    Just note its a good idea to replace the bulbs when your replace the inverter (visa-versa) to avoid having to go for another repair to soon.
