Same problem started happening two days ago and ever since. I called LG and the product falls under a 3yr product warranty according to them (from my original purchase date of January 20, 2007). They will send packing slips to me so I can send the defective unit back to LG. I was told I am eligible for a replacement monitor - which will be shipped to me within 10 to 14 days (consecutive days, not business) - although I'm not sure what I'm being sent in return. My suspicion is that this monitor issue is a known issue by LG and they are quietly replacing the unit to those who follow through by calling CS.
Tips: Have your original purchase date on hand (in the form of a receipt) just in case they want proof of purchase.

Ahh the same thing has happened to my monitor! Mine unfortunately is 1 month over warranty. Apparently this is a common problem with this model!

Testimonial: "Excellent advise and many thanks. But it seems that this model does suffer some problems with this fault and LG knows it."
first you ensure that it is a problem with TFT or CPU. you can check it with another monitor. if it is working with another monitor then your TFT has been faulty.then you can repaired it from service center.

Just fixed mine :)
Biggest mistake was to try to open the monitor itself :( But I didn't brake anything :D
You just have to gently open the transformer unit (power brick) and replace two identical 1000uF 16V capacitors.
Remove the power cord first, to discharge the capacitors to avoid any nasty shocks when inside. Remove two rubber feet on the bottom side of the power brick. Just use your nail and lift them. Put them safely for later assembling. Unscrew two screws you just found under the removed feet. Now you have to unlock the other side held together by plastic locks. Try to apply pushing force and toque with screwdriver just where the seam is meeting the power cord socket's edge. Look for two identical capacitors and check if the tops are bulged of broken. I assume they are but you can try this method anyway. When the unit is disassembled you'll have to unsolder at least one of the wires that hold shielding plate on the bottom of the circuit board. Then unsolder the two capacitors (1000uF 16V). Replace them with the same type (1000uF) and the closest voltage possible. I have replaced mine with 1000uF 24V ones and so far I'm typing :D
That's it. If you have done this and looked for other damaged capacitors and replaced them also... Well then good luck disassembling the monitor unit and checking on inverter and lamps ;)
