Answers :

\015\012It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem, we have\015\012repaired many Samsung monitors with this problem. After a few years\015\012some LCD monitors\015\012will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called\015\012capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are\015\012good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures 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 can't do the repair we offer a repair service, contact us for more details or if you have more questions.
\015\012I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Sounds like a power supply or power circuit board issue. You can troubleshoot by plugging the monitor into a different computer, just to eliminate any incompatibility issues. If you have the same problem on a different computer, you can try switching out the power supply (if it's external). If none of that produces an acceptable outcome, you're left with repair or replacement. Sorry I don't have better news. I see on various forums that this particular monitor has problems "going the distance".
