    My monitor just quit 2 weeks ago. We have had it a little over a year, but don't overly use it. The screen just went black one day. The green indicator light showing that the power is on still appears.

    Our monitor is, as most seem to be, just about a year old and it shut off overnight. The problem is the backlight. If you shine a flashlight onto your monitor (with all of it plugged into the computer and the monitor powered on) the screen will show slightly. If that is the case, you have the same issue. I can only think of one solution: to get a new backlight and an inverter, but I don't know where to find any.

    It was fine last night and this morning the green light is on but the monitor was off.  I turned it off and on again and the monitor flashed on, stayed on for about ONE second, and went off again with the green "ON" light still lit.  Can this be fixed?

    same problem - the monitor will "wake up" as indicated by the change from amber to green indicator LED, but plugged into another computer and still black screen - OSD doesn't show either.

    my monitor is about 13 months old... seems to be a common problem - all of the monitors dying right after manufacturer warranty expires... hmmm...

    Power recently went out in the entire home. Came back on within an hour. I noticed the Westinghouse Mod. 1975 monitor screen was black with power (green) light on. I have this attached to my DVR and that is working fine when I connected it to my Dell Computer Monitor. Westinghouse monitor is about 16 months old. From what I am reading it's shot.

    Accidentally hit the power switch on a power strip and my Westinghouse is now in the same boat. Remarkably crappy quality if it takes that little to take out the power supply and this the backlight. I will be sure to post my dissatisfaction whenever the opportunity is present. Mine is about 15 months old.

    I am having the same problem with my monitor. The green light is showing but it only shows the display for about a second and then it is black again. I have reseated all the cables to the monitor and the cpu. This is a fairly new monitor, right at a year old. Seems this is a common problem with this model and go figure my warranty is out.

The monitor is only 2 years old. less then 50

If you left it plugged into the outlet, the power supply is still running 24/7 even you never trun it on! Look inside for bad caps first, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors:
