Having problems with your Princeton Digital VL1717 LCD Monitor ?

My LCD Monitor is blinking on & off constantly

\015 My princeton VL1918 is about 2 years old. It started blinking today. I tested it on a 2nd computer and it still blinks. It even blinks without a computer signal. Can this be fixed?\015

Answers :

The problem is more than likely the caps in the powersupply have gone bad. What you need to replace are 3 470uF 25V (you can use 470 uF 35V caps too) capacitors on the power supply circuit. Yes, you will need to bring out the soldering iron, no it is not terribly difficult to unsolder them. There is a longer thread on here (search under vl1918) for more info in which I posted a solution that has worked for most.
It may need a different outlet, if it is not getting proper power. Small chance that the video cable has gone bad, but more likely the monitor is damaged. But try those two things and call Princeton.

My Samsung Syncmaster 240T stopped working today.

The power light just blinks orange about every 2 seconds opposite the beeping. All the buttons are completely unresponsive. I can't turn it on or off anymore, as soon as I plug it in it beeps and blinks and is completely unresponsive. The backlight and everything else was working flawlessl
