There is a port on the back of the monitor for connecting it to your computer's sound card. Green to green with the provided cable will work.

I have no sound on my moniter and on checking I do not have a audio cable on my moniter. Where can I get one.


If this is a new unit all what is needed is to check the first page in the manual for the list of acessories that comes along and if this cord is mentioned you must contact the dealer. If not this is a general type and so must not be a fault to get them in the general market- any spares shop.

My VL 1918 is blinking on and off constantly


It does the same when used with another PC?
Otherwise, look for bad caps, transistors, transformers as shown in my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/PRINCETON/Princeton%20VL1918W/#!cpZZ1QQtppZZ20

Very common problem as you can see.

How do I change the size of the image of a Princeton Digital VL 1918?


You can't change the image size as such actually on the monitor but you can change the size of the image feeding the monitor.
In windows right click the desktop, click properties in drop down menu then click settings.The setting should correspond with the native setting of the monitor which is 1280x1024 pixels and that is what you should set it to.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

I've opened my princeton vl 1919 monitor to see if the caps are blown. I can't loosen the grey metal cover covering the boards to see the caps. I've removed the hexes on either side of the video inputs but...


Not sure if the VL1918 uses the same chassis as your, just remove the 4 screws and disconnect all the lamps connectors and other connectors.

I have an old Princeton VL 173 that I had been using with an old computer running Windows XP Pro. It works fine. Got a computer with an Asus MB and a Intel Core 2 Quad running Windows 7 Home Premium...


It sounds like a driver/software issue. When you ran the Princeton VL173 on XP you probably had all the correct software for your video card and the correct drivers to support your video output. When you changes OS to Windows 7, the XP drivers are no longer in place. My best guess is that you need to find and install the correct drivers for your system video and for your video card that are Windows 7 compatible. The old XP drivers will not work in Windows 7.

I am running XP with a Princeton VL173. It works great. I identified the correct video drivers for my system and installed them. My video card is nVidia 8800GT. I downloaded and installed the latest software from nVidia and installed it. It runs like a champ.

Several months ago my display died. It was just blank -- black. I tried using a power supply (AC adapter) from an old HP printer that died, and it worked! The plugs were identical, and the power output profiles were very nearly identical. It has been rinnung great for many months now.

I hope this helps.

Princeton vl 1918 monitor on screen it says check cable no signal. how do you obtain signal?


You need to verify to find out if it is the monitor is bad or the PC is not sending the video signal to the monitor. Try another monitor with the PC, if you still have the problem then you need to fix the PC, if it works OK then it is the monitor problem.

I cannot get the Princeton VL 1716 to stay on the 32 bit color when I reboot.


This problem occurs when the incorrect video driver has been install in the computer. It defaults to generic VGA driver which does not allow any scope to change to a higher screen resolution and a higher bit color setting.

I have a Princeton VL1918 LCD monitor. Need help


Hello,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. If you don't see any bad capacitors then the next thing would be bad CFL (backlight tubes) in the screen itself. If it is that then the monitor needs to be replaced because of the tech skills needed to replace then. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.
