Question about Princeton Digital VL2018W Monitor

1 Answer

The black color of the monitor has green in it?

I have the oddest problem of green showing through when there's supposed to be black on the picture. I have no idea what could be causing this, but all the other colors look alright.

Someone please help!

Thanks!

SOURCE: colors

Hi, This sounds like a color driver problem with the RED. I will assume that the blue is good since yellow will only be present if the green and blue are both ok. Below is a copy of my response to a similar post at http://www.fixya.com/support/t181021-zenith_a25a11d_no_red_color "...If you are comfortable working with a soldering iron, a continuity (VOM) multi tester and a fair knowledge of electronic components, then perhaps you can repair the missing color red. You have to open the unit, expose the small printed circuit board that is attached to the small end of the picture tube. There will be many components present but you will need to focus yourself on three (3) transistors that are bigger than the others sometimes with an aluminum heatsink. It is also possible that instead of 3 transistors you will have one power IC. In any case these control and provide the drive for the 3 colors of your picture tube: red, green and blue. One of them is either dead or suffers from cold solder to any or all of its pins/legs. You have to visually inspect the solder joints of these big transistors/IC and determine if any is dull in color, loose of simply not connected. You may even try the shotgun approach and solder each of the pins/terminals/legs just as long as you don't cross solder creating a short between pins/legs. If this works, you're set, if not: You have to check with the use of the VOM and determine which of the 3 transistor is defective. If you are familiar checking continuity of base to collector to emitter and reverse, again you're set, if not perhaps you check all three and compare which have the same reading from the same position and which is different. Pls keep in mind the transistors have forward and reverse bias readings. If able to determine defective component, desolder, replace and solder. If it were an IC, replace the entire pack. If the above would make you uncomfortable, pls ask for the services of a qualified TV repair man and explain your problem..." Hope this give too an idea. Good luck and pls post again how things are or if you need further information. Kind regards.

SOURCE: My monitor is all weird colors

Generally, this is caused by the loss of one of the main color inputs (Red Green Blue). Do the Following:

  1. Check the cable connections at both the monitor and the computer. Look inside the connector for any bent bent pins (there may be some that appear to be missing, generally that is normal) then reset the connections firmly and tighten the retainer screw snug, but not extremely tight.
  2. If that doesn't resolve, try the monitor on a different system and see if the problem follows the monitor. If it does, try a different cable. If the problem doesn't occur on another system, then the video card of the effected system is suspect.
  3. If issue occurs on multiple systems with known good cables, then the monitor will need replacement.

My computer monitor is a black screen....the light is lit solid green and I can hear the software playing just no picture


If the light is green, I suspect that the backlight has gone out on you. This could also be caused by you having the brightness turned all the way down.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Monitor shows picture for 1/2 second then goes black, 22" display. also will not show display menus. have hooked another monitor up and works fine. also have hooked up to another computor and problem...


When you switch the monitors, do you still use the very same vga cable? If you don't, then it's time to change the monitor. When it turns on and off inmediately it means that it's receiving the signal, but that's it. If it's brand new, exchange it.

Monitor Screen goes black seconds after turn on-


I ended up fixing my problem, but I'm not sure what the solution is. I had some faulty electrical equipment that I was using to power the monitor (220V to 110V converter and a bad power strip) and I got rid of them. I was using the converter because I moved to Israel and I thought I needed to feed the monitor only 110V, but I now realize that the power cord for the monitor has a built-in converter that accepts 220V input. Now the monitor is plugged directly into the wall and is working fine. Try using a different power source (maybe the wiring or plug you're using is faulty). Good Luck!

NEC LCD1712 Problem


Please try your monitor on a friends computer.

This is a very odd problem so you should make sure it's being caused by the monitor.

If it is the monitor, it's a tough one. It could be a bad main board, or a bad LCD panel.

I would check your warranty status. It sounds like it may need to have the signals checked on the board to determine which of the two parts are causing the problem.
