    The monitor won't turn on. I cannot use the computer without it. I cant get any of the buttons on the monitor to work. Therefore I cannot decide what input is selected.

    I am unable to adjust the brightness and contrast on my monitor. If I hit the auto button it will brighten up for 4 seconds the go back.

    I have the same problem. If I press the up arrow, it lights up file for a couple seconds and then goes blank. All other buttoms are unresponsive.

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.

Hi

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.

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: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Monitor stuck in power saving mode


If the monitor goes into power saving mode as soon as you turn your computer on then maybe your graphics card is only half-way in and not secured properly. I would first recommend plugging in a different monitor if you have one, if it doesn't get any signal either then read on. I had this issue, basically a couple screws need to be put back in because they have fallen out. The graphics card was only partially plugged in and the computer would run but not "communicate" with the monitor. If you are unsure how to do this then I recommend taking a trip to your nearest IT shop, the job takes only about 1 minute so you should have your computer back quickly. Hope this helps,

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.
