Prinston VL2018W Nothen but White light, when signal is present.

When any computer signial is present the monitor goes White, Farley Bright. There are no Graphics or words present, only white light. Does anyone have this same problem ? Or can anyone tell me how it could be fixed ? I have only had it for only 5 months and it did this. Princeton was no help. They said it is no longer supported.

    Did you take it back from where you got it? Those monitors are warrantied for a year. is the place where i got a support number and called them and complained. They will make a RMA number for it and replace it for you.

    You might want to try again. Thanks

My princeton VL2018W will flash the screen when first powered on but goes blank after. With repeated unpluging, the display used to stay, but no luck

99% will be bad caps in the power supply section. Take the back off and look for caps with bulging top, replace them with good quality caps such as PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY.

The power board probably needs an overhaul. Capacitors are probably the cause. It would have to be opened up to check that.
I repair many monitors through ebay and it is common on a lot of monitors.
If you take it apart and send me a picture to, I may be able to see the problem.

Vl2018W princeton monitor


If the caps you took out are rated at 50v it is best to use that rating, lower value caps can short out and cause additional problems. Also a white screen means 1 of 2 things, either the power supply is still not putting out the right voltage or yo have a small fuse blown on the lcd panel. The most likely cause is the power supply is still not right. If you can take a few pictures of your power supply board and send them to me at I will see if I can cross reference the board with something and try to help you out.
