it is probably the power button itself, or there is something wrong with the power board inside the monitor, the capacitors are probably on their way out, in these monitors cheap capacitors are used and they seem to fail within 2-3 years, these can be replaced by a professional and would probably be cheaper than buying a new one. either way, if the picture on the monitor is OK, you could just switch it off at the socket or wait for it to go into power saving mode.
If pc not sending it to "sleep mode" or "power save" mode, then unit may need help of electronics technician to investigate the "internal switch-mode-power-supply" that may be going into "shutdown" mode after it detects a "fault condition" with itself or onother circuit.
Try it on another PC first, check VGA cable, but more likely to be the monitor for monitor this old. Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://www.badcaps.net http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague
Look for any bulging capacitors, instead of a flat top they will look "pregnant".
If you see any of those then replace them with capacitors of the same UF rating and the voltage needs to be either the same or higher.
If you dont see any bulging capacitors or burnt parts, then its got be the LCD at that point thats not staying on and the cost to replace the LCD is as much if not more then to just get another monitor.
had the same issue, called up customer care of samsung and they suggested me to change the cable to D-15 10 series. I was getting the comp o/p on TV but with the "Check Signal Cable" messg with the old VGA cable where some pin is not grounded used for computer to monitor connectivity. Abhi..
Your monitor has a very common problem. The internal power supply has blown a part called a capacitor. If you are comfortable working with electronics and with soldering I can talk you thru the diag/repair. If you are not ready to tackle that we also offer a repair service, about $30 plus shipping for your model. Let me know if you want to try fixing it yourself and we can go from there. The repair will require opening the monitor case and replacing from 2 - 5 parts. You can call me at 318-447-9040 if you have questions.
I'm guessing you may need to download the proper software and drivers for this monitor. Have you always had this problem and now want to change it? Try this website: http://static.tigerdirect.com/pdf/samsung-206bw-manual.pdf
