Question about Princeton Digital VL1918 Monitor
This is an incompatibility with the video card, or a settings problem. Did it used to work just fine and one day it stopped? DO you know what changed when it stopped working?

I Just checked the specs on both the card and the monitor. It should work no problem. If for some reason you notice some lag or flicker in the monitor, go to this page and download the updated ForceWare graphics drivers.

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.

eben161, you might try replacing some "electrolytic filter capacitors" on the "switch-mode-power-supply" printed circuit board. Try to obtain new ones that have temp rating of 105 deg centegrade. remember to replace them + to + and - to - !!! don't screw it up!!! here are some of the values you will need to purchase. 470micro farad (uf) and 2200uf and all should have a voltage rating no lower than 35vdc please report back with the name of the manufacturer you find on the original "failed" ones you remove from the unit. even if they don't look bad (swollen, leaky) replace them all with new one's. If you won't do the work you can also check to see if Princeton can swap you a refurbished unit for your old+cash. But first you should read all the posts that have been written on this model lcd monitor and how they were fixed! I'm 12fixlouie If this response was helpful to you, please rate it on fixya. Bye for now.
