I have tested this on other known good PC's. Any ideas what I need to replace? I am not affraid of taking the monitor apart. Thanks.

I just fixed my for less then 1 minute. Here was the problem, when turn on the PC with the monitor connected. The screen appear like normal for about 2 seconds then shut off black but the GREEN power LED stay on, if i press the power off and turn it back on the screen act the same thing.
\015\012Here how to fix it, turn off the PC, unplug the monitor power cable then plug it back. The power LED will stay amber. Hold down both brights minus - and plus + same time, turn on the PC, keep hold the - and + buttons press the power button turn on the monitor.
\015\012You will see the screen back on, just hold for about 10 more seconds till you see the screen seem to stay on fine then realse them. That's it how i fixed my.....GOOD LUCK
When it have this kind of error is a problem of the powerboard.
\012 Anyway you must open it and look at the all capacitors and if are them inflated, if them are inflated must change them.
\012
\012 But can be a problem with inverters... control the transistors - MOSFET on the powerboard.
\012
\012 Good luck!
