Could also be the bulb... some LCD Desktop bulbs can be replaced with as little as $10.00 (us) and a little bit of soldering

Sound like you have a bad power inverter inside the monitor. These can usually be replaced on laptop screens, but I have never seen the parts to do it on a desktop LCD screen ( eBay might be a good shot), but your best bet would be to send it to the manufacturer for repair.

Good Luck,

My Vizio GV42L is fading to a dull whitish color after 2-3 minutes. I can still see the TV program I am on but the screen just goes to a dull whitish color. No boxes or anything popping up. Basical

Either its back light inverter board, or, the LVDS cable has the fault. First try by re-seat the LVDS cable, and check. Thus you can make sure about the fault. If you wish to get more details, check this link. Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic /Timeslide, can be selected by the drop-down list, by the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name / model number / IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window.

Try to do this: Just before the Windows start up screen (after the bios loading) press F8 and log in at safe mode settings. If at this mode you can see your screen change the resolution settings at a lower set. Save and reboot normally. Now try step by step to increase your resolution. In case of a blank screen appears at a new setting, don't do anything; after some seconds the monitor will come back to the previous settings. Save and go on.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.
