Having problems with your Princeton Digital VL1916 19" LCD Monitor ?

Princeton monitor, model # vl1916 Wont power on.

\015 I got it from a person who said it worked fine when she used it last. I got it home and cant get it to power on. Is it scrap or can it maybe be fixed somewhat cheap? I am a disabled veteran and cant afford a whole lot to fix it. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Bill\015

Hi, Billman11, maybe you can repair or maybe not. You need to tell me some stuff first. Need the approx age of the display. Next thing! Does the monitor have external power supply? (black box, sit on floor type) or internal (line cord to wall outlet, and other end to monitor) What exactly happens if monitor is connected to afully booted PC with known good vga output and u connect the flat screen lcd and push the power button? Is lcd panel still pitch black? no flicker or anything? Can you see the power on led indicator even?? From waht you already described it sounds like a Switch-Mode-Power-Supply failure. Each lcd monitor has 2 or 3 printed circuits inside under metal shields beneath the black plastic case covers. In your case, we will want to investigate the board that the line cord plugs into. That will be the smps board, or the little black box on the floor. If you want to try fixing this monitor you can get back to me at louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com Yes, I'm a vet and spent a year on Kanghwa Do, Korea 67-68 Work for company that provides electronic hardware/software to the gaming industry and located northern Illinois. BYE for now.
