Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 203B LCD Monitor ?

This monitor has started requiring long "warmup" times. I use it in a dual-monitor configuration. When the computer is turned on, one monitor comes up immediately, the other stays black. If I physically turn it off and then on again after about 5", a dim image comes up and then quickly returns to black screen. It only comes up brightly and permanently after about an hour. Can anything be done?
