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 1717 only flashes on when I unplug and replug the power cord. Even then, it only stays on for a few seconds, then powers off. Checked cables and rebooted pc. No screen. my suggestions?

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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:

I just hooked up this monitor princeton monitor VL SERIES vl1918 it is flashing off and on. Help please

There is an electrical problem with either the power cord connected to the monitor or the outlet that it is plugged into.

If its a brand new monitor, return it to the place of purchase and exchange it.

If its a used monitor then I would suspect that someone has given you the wrong power cord for the unit. Sometimes people check to see which cord "fits" the unit and think that its appropriate because they can connect it.

That is not correct when it comes to monitors. Just because a power cord fits by connecting to the monitor does not always mean its appropriate to run it correctly.

Check the voltage requirements on back of the monitor and compare them to the power cord your using with it. If they are appropriate and your still experiencing this problem then the power cord might be bad.

Test this possibility by disconnecting the monitor from the computer and turn it on. Do you see a screen that says "no video" or "no connection"? Does the screen blink the same way as when connected to the pc? If it does, then its the power cord or supply source its connected to. Plug it into another socket and and see if you get the same thing and that tells you its the cord.

If the display is good when not connected to your pc, then use a process of elimination to figure out if its the monitor cords connector that is broken or frayed or if its the video card connection that is either loose and needs to be re seated in your case or the connection itself is unsturdy and needs the bolts tightened to give a solid connection.

How do you do that?

Check the pins on the end of the cable that connects the monitor to your pc. Are any broken, missing or bent?. Check the other end that connects to the monitor and verify the same thing.

Then try and jiggle the video card by grabbing the area that you connect the monitor cable to on the back of your pc's case and see if it is loose. If it is, get a screwdriver and tighten the screws until its tight.

Try plugging it in again and see if this solves your problems. If it doesn't then clarify your findings and I will help you solve this issue another way.

Temporarily connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if your video-card is the problem.

Temporarilyh connect your monitor to a different computer (desktop/laptop), to see if your monitor is the problem.

Try a different "data" cable between your monitor and your video-output port.

Changing cable port

The monitor is a Fujitsu VL-15DX5G. 15 inch LCD.

The monitor cable uses a female DFP20 connector.
(Display Port 20-pin)

So you need a male DFP20 to male DVI-D adapter, or adapter cable.

DFP20 Male to plug into the monitor cable, and Male DVI-D (Dual) to plug into the graphics card's, female DVI-D connection.

So far, all I have found from a quick search is a Male DFP20 to Female DVI-D adapter, such as this example,

Of course this won't do.

IF, this is all that's available for DFP20 adapters, you'll need an adapter of Male DVI-D to Male DVI-D, also. (Yes, I am aware of how crazy that sounds)

(It would appear, adapters are sold to connect a normal DVI-D monitor cable, {Male}, to a computer with a female DFP20 connector)

Should your searching only find DVI-D female to DFP20 male adapters, or adapter cables, then here is an example of a DVI-D male to DVI-D male adapter,

(DVI-D male to DVI-D male cable would probably be better as there would be less strain on the graphics card's DVI-D connection)

White screen problems with my fujitsu siemens amilo li 1705 from boot. External monitor activity suggests system is assume it is not the motherboard. How can I test the LCD cable wire or the screen...

Just a hunch. If external monitor is connected to computer when computer is turned on, video output is diverted to the external monitor. Turn computer on, without external monitor, then extend your desktop to an auxiliary video screen (monitor, TV , or projector.) Or you can configure your computer to use the internal LCD and the monitor. Check the graphics properties of the laptop.
Hope it helps.
