Is it sort of rolling almost.
If so you have a few bad capacitors in the power supply that need to be replaced.
If you dare to venture inside you should see 1 or more buldging caps. (bowing upwards on the top)
If these start to fail, then they will interupt the correct flow of power and cause this problem with your panel.
Easy to fix if you are electronically minded, if not, take it to your local TV tech and it shouln't cost that much to have repaired.
Remember, inside these monitors is high voltage that can kill, even if it's not plugged in.
