Question about Princeton Digital VL2018W Monitor
REPLACE THE 3-470UF 25V CAPACITORS WITH R-SHACK
470UF 50V CAPS WORK GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted on Apr 07, 2008
I replaced the capacitors which had bulging vents and it worked. Here is a page that has pictures of the process on a similar model: http://www.thisoldtractor.com/gtbender/princeton_graphics_vl1918_monitor_repair.htm d('T09PULG0w7S/fX98fn0=').

It is a power supply/inverter board problem. The capacitors go bad (see solution #2). Replacement of this board will fix the problem.

The tech support people at Princeton say it is a power supply problem. The unit comes with one year warranty so if it is less than a year you should be covered. A replacement board costs $75 plus shipping from www.lcdparts.net. I would like to try solution #2 first (replace the 3 capacitors with Radio Shack capicators) but I got to figure out how to get into the monitor.
I removed all the screws but it is still tight as a drum.

I have the blinking power light problem, but I can help the person who asked how the thing comes apart. Once the screws have been removed, the back and front halves of the monitor are snapped together. Use a side screwdriver to pry the two parts apart. There are two spots where there is a slightly wider gap (probably for this purpose) - start there and work your way gradually a couple of inches at a time all the way around the monitor and it will pop apart.
I will be trying the capacitor replacement shortly.

So far i can tell its not the power supply. i think it has a motherboard issue. i will post when i find a solution.

Is the monitor connected to the computer?
Is the computer turned on?
Have you checked to see if the monitor works when plugged into another computer?

One of 2 possibilities come to mind.
1, The vga chord is loose on the back of the monitor.
2, Your resolution is set too high or low to be displayed.
The blinking light means that the monitor is either not getting or understanding a signal.
Hope this helps.
