Question about Princeton Digital VL2018W Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor does not turn on automatic

When I turn on my computer and the monitor it does not turn on or show a display. I have to turn it off and on several times before it would flicker before finally turning on, but once it is turned on it stay on until the next cold boot,

I have a Princeton 20" LCD monitor (Model VL2018W) appromiately four years, and it has been fine up until recently.

    Hello acdr,



    I forgot to add that the power is on for both computer and monitor it is just the monitor does not displays a solid picture only one that flickers and at the end goes blank or black.



    This only happens when both the computer and the monitor is sitting idle for a long per and not powered on.

    Thanks acdr, but the problem is not in the power saving mode. It has to do with the monitor and the connections(DVI). I try switching out the cords with a VGA cord. I used a DVI adapter on the end that goes into the monitor and it worked fine.



    I think that it maybe a faulty DVI cord that has my monitor going crazy or acting strange.



    I don't think that it could be my video card because I had upgraded it in the beginning of all this, and it worked fine for awhile.

The display shows the magnet


Remove the monitor from power for more than 10 minutes and then put it on again, the automatic degaussing circuit that built in the monitor should resolve your problem but make sure the monitor is away from magnet or powerful speakers.

Hi Anand,

You need to check your power options settings and modify it , so that your monitor does not turn off automatically.


If you are using windows xp , go in control panel and then there would be an icon for power options , double click the power options and then you would find settings which read turn off monitor , turn off hard disk etc... select the turn off monitor to never mode or as per your convenience and you would have your problem solved.

Hope this helps.
