No sound driver is needed for the built-in monitor power speakers (just think of it as a Powered PC speakers built-into the monitor). Are your PC sound card and driver and setting OK? Try feeding the monitor with sound source from MP3 player to see if it works OK, To repair the amplifiers in the monitor will not be worth it since you can spend the same amount for a good set of Powered PC speakers instead with much better sounding.

Hello I can't get anything on my screen except


Your PC is putting too high resolution for he VL1918 to display.
You need to set your PC video out put to the native resolution of the VL1918, which is 1280x1024 @60Hz.
You will have to hook up your old monitor (crt type?) and set the new resolution.
Or boot up in safe mode (hit f8 during boot up), and set the resolution to 640 x 480, reboot into regular mode, then rest the resolution to 1280x1024 260Hz.
Also watch out for bad caps in this monitor: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Princeton%20VL1918W/

My monitor is going on and off, even if its not connected to the computer. its stays on for 10 seconds saying no signal. then shuts off n comes on again right away for another 10 sec, ect.


matteson1914, If unplugging from wall outlet and then plugging it back in 1 minute later will not stop (correct) the problem you have, then I would suspect (as always) the "switch-mode-power-supply" has a serious problem. Whenever an lcd with CCFL backlighting starts doing very strange and weird stuff, I would suspect the power supply as the culprit and look at it first! If your display is a VL1918 then you WILL need to read all the other posts by clicking on "VL1918 (black) monitor" that is highlghted in blue. If you do any capacitor replacement make sure they go in (installed) correctly(++ - - ) and that new ones are rated for 105 deg cenitgrade (not 85c) If installed wrong they will fail immediatly and you will need to do-over!!!! 12fixlouie

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.

Will Princeton monitor VL1918 support NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE


Hi Alvie
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.
