Question about Computers & Internet
Look for bad caps as shown in my pictures, common problem in all brands of LCD monitors.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much for the help! My son and I ventured into unknown territory in trying this. We opened up the monitor and sure enough there were 8 bad capacitors. We tried the local Radio Shack but they didn't have the right sizes so went to a larger town and found an electronics supply store that was very helpful in getting the right capacitors - they knew we needed hi temp ones which were a bit more expensive - it pays to ask for help. We took the bad ones out and soldered the new ones in and presto the monitor now works great! Total cost was about $18 plus several hours of our time but what a sense of accomplishment to fix something yourself! BTW the videos on youtube are very helpful if you don't know what you're doing."
