A $10 voltmeter/amp testor from any hardware store would tell you if the power supply is passing the correct amps/volts through to the monitor. Just match the reading to the stated rating on the power supply's label. If it is giving the correct current levels, then it's your monitor. If not, you can get generic power supplies at mos hardware stores & even Radio Shack fairly cheap.

Hi, I have a Princeton LCD17D flat screen monitor and the screen keeps going black after 20 seconds or so. I power up my PC and it turns on then black. If I turn it off and on again the same thing occurs....


It's getting power, it's just not getting signal from the data cable. The cord that connects to the monitor, (not the power) is typically the reason it is going into standby mode. This can also happen if your graphics card driver is missing on your operating system, but you said you tried the monitor on another machine, so I narrowing it down to most likely be the data cable. Try another cable.

My monitor screen is ok for awhile but suddenly turns a dull yellow color. I just bought it a few months ago.


Hi,
you must adjust the display settings in the software program that was being used to change the display setting.
  • If you have a flat panel LCD monitor, unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor.
  • Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet.
  • If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad.
  • follw the another steps-
  • Replace the monitor power cable.
    1. Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
    2. Replace the video cable. Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
    3. If the monitor does not work after replacing the cables, replace or service the monitor
  • Thanks,

    It will be compatible with the system, just keep on thing in mind, whatever resolution you set your computer at you may have to keep the ratio aspect active so that way the screen looks properly displayed.

    Dell flat panel monitor -power button blinks green to amber - no


    One reason that this is happening could be that it is on Power saving mode. This happens when the LCD monitor detecs an incorrect timing then thats the time that the LCD goes blank and the power botton starts to blink.

    what you need to do is to turn the computer off. Unplug cables attach to the LCD make sure it is also off, once done press the power botton for a couple of 30secs to a minute and then release. After doing so re-connect all the cables and make sure that both ends is tight and secure once everything is ok turn the computer on same with the monitor to check if it solves the problem.

    PRINCETON LCD 19 IN MONITOR. WHEN TURNED ON SCREEN FLASHES OFF AND ON AND MAKES A NOISE EACH TIME IT FLASHES OFF AND ON. AFTER SEVERAL MINUTES STAYS ON AND WORKS FINE.


    Sounds like there is a capacitor in the power supply section that is failing to charge/discharge correctly. Is it under MFG warranty? If so I would send it in for repair.

    When I turned off my monitor last night, it was fine. When I turned it back on this afternoon, all of the colors were darkened and discolored. It looks like my contrast was change, but it wasn't, since no...


    is this an lcd flat panel monitor or a crt? if it is a flat panel then you may be dealing with blown capacitors on the vga board inside. they can be replaced therby repairing the monitor. if it is a crt then just recycle it and buy a newer lcd monitor to replace this old one.
