I was just wondering if there is a DYI solution, or I would be better off repairing or replacing the monitor for this issue:
Well, I like moving my lcd monitor around to better suit me when I am lying down or sitting. This involves passing the monitor through the bad frame bars, which I usually have no trouble with. today, I squeezed it through and the monitor turned off. Not only that, when I turned the monitor back on, it would not show a normal screen. Even when I moved the mouse cursor, turned the monitor on and off again, disconnected it and reconnected it to the computer, and pressed the menu option on it, the monitor would still show the strange moving green and purple clouds of light. The little menu would not show up either.
Most reputable repair shops will tell you if it can be repaired and how much it will cost. You can then chose to repair or replace based on their estimate. You should not have to pay for this service and should get second opinion if possible. Many times the repairs on LCD monitors approach replacement cost. Even broken your monitor has some value to someone and should be sold or donated not thrown away if it is cost prohibitive to repair.

A blank screen is usually caused by the power supply not giving the right voltages to the back light inverter, the bulbs last a lot longer than the power supply board. If you can do a little soldering then you should be able to do the repair yourself. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to dis-assemble the unit and get to the power supply board. There are 5 capacitors that will need to be changed and in most cases this will fix the type of issues you are having with this monitor.
Your, Fpd2275W.Probably needs some of the capacitors replaced on the power board,If you need assistance on how to DYI the repairs, please email me at;Sprint6@zoominternet.net and I would be glad to help you get it working again.
Then the issue is inside the monitor itself. If this is a big CRT monitor I would NOT recommend working on it yourself as it is basically one big capacitor with a bad attitude, you may see if there are any monitor repair technicians in your area. But you may be better of just replacing it as they are very inexpensive now adays.
It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem, we have
repaired many Samsung monitors with this problem. After a few years
some LCD monitors
will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called
capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are
good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work
fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -
connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the
same way. If you can't do the repair we offer a repair service, contact us for more details or if you have more questions.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

The problem is called "pincushion distortion" and happens because of the way CRT monitors work. There is circuitry in the monitor to correct the display, but it's not working in your monitor. Often this is because of bad solder connections to transistors in the circuit (they get pretty hot sometimes and can cause the connections to degrade). It can also be due to failure of those parts.
If you are comfortable working with electronic soldering and want to try your own repair, open the monitor and examine the board for bad connections. Repair any that are grainy or obviously cracked. Typically the parts that need resoldering are mounted on metal heatsinks so you have a place to start looking.
I don't recommend paying a shop to repair this. New 17-inch LCD monitors are so inexpensive today that it's better just to replace the CRT one.
look in your local paper for monitor repairer,
but as the cost of a new monitors has come down so much ,i would consider a new purchase as the refresh rates and picture quality are far better now than when your monitor was produced,also second hand prices are very low .
More than likely, the power surge burned one of the small resistors on the power supply or secondary side of power out put card. This is not a hard repair to diagnose or to make but you will not want a novice to do it as you can do more harm than good if you are not qualified with a soldering iron and multitester. Better to take in for repairs, should not be that expensive from what you haev posted here to fix it.
Sounds like the backlight inverters or CCFL tubes are at fault.
Turn the monitor on with it connected to a known good SVGA signal source that is sure to have video. (Like the computer when it is operating.)
Hold a flashlight to the screen of the monitor and see if the faint video can be seen through the screen.
If the video is faintly present on the monitor screen using this method of illumination, then either the CCFL inverters / Inverter board has failed, or the CCFL tubes themselves have gone bad. (CCFL = Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp)
This should give you a better idea of how to proceed, repair or replace.
If it is the inverters or CCFL, Repair costs for a DYI project could range from $70 to $120 depending on the level of your expertise and parts availability.
Good luck with your quest.
