Princeton VL1715 startup problem

When I boot my PC with the monitors vga cable pluged into the motherboards vga connector, everything goes as expected. BUT when I plug the monitors vga cable into my ATI 9600 Pro's vga connector and attempt to power up, I heard one beep and the monitors led remains orangeish in color. After 20 to 30ish attempts, I'm able to boot successfully. Also when I boot initially with the monitor plugged into the motherboard vga connector , and after sometime in windows, I can turn my pc off, move the vga connector to the ATI's vga connector and boot successfully. I've updated everything! HELP ME PLEASE!!!

Re: Princeton VL1715 startup problem

Have you disabled your onboard video in the BIOS? Boot your machine with the vga cord to the motherboard. You need to get into the BIOS. Depending on the make of your machine you need you will need to hit the del key, f2, or even f1. Go to the periphrial setup and disable your onboard video. Save the BIOS turnoff the computer and plug the monitor into you vga card. That should do it. To change it back to your motherboards vga just reverse the instructions. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Screen display only comes on for a second then goes black when pc input from vga port.

Try it on another PC, check all the pins on the VGA cable first.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed PRINCETON monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

Out of range no display

Try pressing F8 when starting the PC, but BEFORE Windows starts loading. In the menu, select Safe Mode. Windows now startd with a very low resolution. You can right0click your desktop, select properties, then the Settings tab, and drag the reslution slider all the way to the left in Windows XP, or for Vista and 7, rightclick the desktop, sleect the lowest option, go to screen settings, and drag the slider all the way to the left.

After that, click OK, then restart your PC. Now you can try to increase the resolution step by step, and if it goes wrong start in safe mode and set it back a step. That way you will achieve the highest possible resolutioon (and better image quality)

I hope this helps,

Princeton VL1715 monitor's pwr button is "locked." Can't turn-off

I have resolved this situation on other brands by holding down one of the advustment buttons while holding the power button in. You will see a message about "unlocking button" and a sliding bar if you find the right buttons.

Princeton LCD17 blinks off immediately

Check the VGA cord that connects from the PC to the LCD, try putting VGA cord properly to the LCD and PC, or change the VGA cord. saving mode indicates no signal from the PC. So either the PC is not booting up or VGA cord faulty.
