    I have the same problem, only with am LG Flatron. It was working perfectly until I unhooked it to move to another room and now will only show the Power Saving Mode" msg before turning black. I don't think it';s the computer since I went and bought a new one and it won't work with that either!

Using Microsoft Windows XP and others, Go to control panel and look for power options

Look through power options. Turn off Power saving items, You will see turn off after 1 Minute and so on.

last item indicates that you want to Never turn off Power Options. Set to NEVER then exit and reboot system. This may solve the problem Good Luck

Other option is to Go to Bios (Hold down Delete Key on Start-up) and look at power saving and monitor setings in Bios.

Good Luck

Try to test the computer with another monitor to make sure it's working ok.

Just bought HDMI to DVI cable to connect my VL193 to my HP laptop - unable to get the monitor to "pick up" the signal - just a blank screen - if I power it on & off, just goes right to power...


Desktop PCs automatically seek an external monitor to output graphics to. Laptops default settings send the image to the internal monitor. You need to manually instruct the laptop to export the image to an external monitor.

With the cable connected and the monitor powered up, try pressing the Fn key (bottom left of keyboard) on the laptop and simultaneously pressing the function key at the top ofthe keyboard with an image of 2 monitors (often F5 or F6) to sent d the image to the external screen.

I hope this helps.

My Princeton 19 inch LCD monitor keeps turning off and I have to un-plug it, wait, and plug it back into the wall socket for it to go back on. I replaced the multiple box and the power cord and am using...

bsims77010, Tell me brand name of electrolytic filter capacitors on the large "switch-mode-power-supply / CCFL inverter supply" printed circuit board. Are any of them SWOLLEN on the end that is up ??? You can see typical "failed units if you visit YOUTUBE for video clips that show owners/tech's that replace them with new ones and now have working units again. You must tell me more about this "keeps turning off" thing???? Is unit going to "black screen" only?? Or is it going to "black n blank" screen"??? There is a difference!!! If black only then 5vdc might be ok! If "black n blank then +12vdc & +5vdc sources could be in shut down mode. Do you see screen data with aid of bright flashlight held 1 inch from the "black" screen?? Once you have knowledge of what makes "raw white light" on reverse side of your lcd panel, then you will have clue to how the new screw-in, curlie-Q style CFL light bulbs work and what an "electronic ballast" circuit is. 12fixlouie

I have the princeton VL193 monitor. Its blank, no power light

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 Princeton monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Princeton Monitor

There is a field of capacitors on the power board that usually goes bad. I believe that there is a total of 6. When you look at the power board you should notice them. I have the capacitors if you need them. $2 each. Just check to confirm that they are swollen. and let me know the voltage and uF. good Luck. David

Stuck in power save mode

Have you have selected the input you are using? You can switch between analog and digital input. The monitor would stay in power save if the input other than the one you are using is selected.
I believe the default input is DVI. Are you using VGA?
In the menu, under advanced, you can select the input.
