Having problems with your Princeton Digital VL1918 Monitor ?

Monitor comes on, then goes back off, rinse, repeat.

\015 Ok... I turn my Princeton VL1918 LCD Monitor w/Built in speakers on when I start my machine, the picture loads, a small "clap" comes from the speakers, and the monitor goes blank. A day or two ago just I could just wait and the problem would stop after a few minutes. Now the last time I left it on it probably went on for about ten minutes... Could the backlight power inverter be going out?Notes: I received this monitor from my Dad's girlfriend, who had been having separate problems with her computer and had just stored it all away in her garage. Also: I don't use the speakers built into the monitor, I have separate, more powerful speakers. I have been researching this issue and I think it has something to do with the power inverter for the backlight, because when the picture loads it looks just fine, before the monitor goes blank.\015

Answers :

Well here is a test you can do. When the monitor goes black, take a flash light and hold at it a angle towards the monitor, if you can still faintly see the image then you have a blacklight/inverter issue. Another common issue with this is the capacitors on the inside. They will also cause this. If you dont see an image then the inverter will need replacing. As the steps for replacing all of this are quite long, ill post a few helpful tuts :).

For replacing the backlight:
For checking/replacing bad capacitors:

I know these arent your monitor but its generally the same idea with all of them. If this doesnt work it will be a inverter issue and if it comes to that just let me know and ill be glad to help :D
