Did you try this monitor with another PC and already verify that the VGA cable is OK. Common problem with Princeton monitors are due to bad DC filter capacitors in the power supply board, see example here:
floresa57, After lcd panel "flashes" is the lcd panel "black" or is it both "black" and "blank" when you perform the flashlight test that every LCD owner should know how to do and interpret the results? Do you have warranty? If no, then read more responses in my FIXYA profile for clues on what YOU will or what YOU won't do to fix your BLACK SCREEN monitor!!! Floresa57, the basic principles of design and operation of your Princeton VL2018W are same as all other brands of Fluorescent backlit LCD monitors!!! It can be fixed. READ, READ, before you do anything. Understand the reason WHY your monitor is now black and lifeless. Follow all the LINKS to other web sites so you will be informed and less likely to be overcharged on a repair job that should have cost less than $50. Good luck Floresa57.

This means that you have reached the limitation of the graphics card of the PC that you have connected to it. You could try changing the Refresh rate of the card to see if you can get a higher resolution.
Looks like one of your backlights is bad, first indication is the red or pink tint, replacement of the lamp is fairly easy. If one lamp is bad the inverter will not work. You can get a replacement lamp from Mouser electronics for about $12
