Question about Princeton Digital VL180 18.1 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Monitor is less than 2 year old. Just went blank. When you turn the power on, the power light comes on and the LCD shows red/pink with the proper display for about 1 second and then goes blank. I am going to reseat all connections, but wondered if it is a waste of time. Replacement LCD units are about $90, and a new one is about $300, so it is worth a little poking around time. Can anyone give me some direction here?
I had the same problem for the past couple of weeks: first it was intermittent and then it just went dead completely. Something you may want to try (depends on model, but worked on mine) is to disconnect the power cord to the back of the monitor. There should be a little black piece of plastic that sticks through a slot in the metal plate behind the power inverter. Try pushing this up (might be a reset of some sort) and then plugging things back in.

I turn on the computer and the light turns green and it makes the click noise and then a couple seconds later the light turns amber and it makes the click noise again and the screen stays black...

The problem with the Princeton LCD Monitors is the Power Supply inverter!!! You Can replace this item by going to www.lcdparts.net and locate the model you have with instructions! Hope this helps...

Before you replace anything pull the light out and then you can see if they are in good shape, outside of the screen is not too hard but delicated take easy, and check o site of lcd repair I think this is the name.

Hi, I have the same problem. You turn it on and it will flash the correct colors and screen shoot for a half of a second then goes black. The green power indicator shows the regular green light as it did when working ok. I turn the computer off and the light turn amber as it should. I plugged it into another computer and same problem. Any help out there before I use it for an anchor on my boat. Thanks...

Looks like one of your backlights is bad, first indication is the red or pink tint, replacement of the lamp is fairly easy. If one lamp is bad the inverter will not work. You can get a replacement lamp from Mouser electronics for about $12

I am using this great LCD for about an year. But few times in the past my LCD didnt show up the display though the Green light was still ON, turning off the LCD and opening it again always solved the problem. But now My LCD completely went blank. Turning off/on didnt work at all now. I've tried couple of other tweaks mentioned on this site but they didnt work. I am just seeing a blank screen with green light ON. and ya theres a very low hissing sound coming from the LCD.
