Samsung SyncMaster 213T - DIM DISPLAY

\015 I've had a SyncMaster 213T for about 4 years. It worked beautifully until today. Now the top half of the display is dim! Really after only 4 years? At first I thought I could degauss, but since it's a flat panel, I'm thinking that it doesn't need to be degaussed. Any suggestions (besides throw it out and get a new monitor)?\015
