Having problems with your Princeton Digital VL1918 Monitor ?

I have a Princeton VL1918 LCD monitor. Need help

\015 I have a Princeton VL1918 LCD monitor. It worked fine for almost 3 years. Now each time I switch on the display comes on and stays for a fraction of a second and I get black screen. I don't hear any sound or switch powering off like that as suggest with some of the postings. The power light stays on fine. Any help is appreciated.\015

Hello,
\015\012
\015\012You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors\015\012will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called\015\012capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are\015\012good 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\015\012You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,\015\012replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work\015\012fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -\015\012connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the\015\012same 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.
