Having problems with your Sceptre X9G Komodo IV 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

Sceptre X9G Komodo IV

\015 My Sceptre LCD X9G-Komodo IV is no longer worked as usual, the screen dos not have video. If I press the button OFF and ON again, the monitor will display information for about 1 second and after that the screen is blanked/blacked out even the power is still ON (green LED). Could you please help me to resolve this.Thank you.\015

Answers :

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).



Thanks for the help. It worked for me.
\015\012I replaced all four and the monitor works fine again.
\015\0122 are 470uf 25v and 2 are 1200uf 10v.
\015\012I ordered mine for about $10 with shipping from Mouser.com
