it seems that youre monitor has a dry solder problem, try tapping it if the picture resumes to normal for a while than get it resoldered from a technician. if it soesnot solve problem than look out for a burnt resistance.

It could be the capacitors on your monitor's Power Supply. Open up the lcd and check the power supply board see if you see any "BULGED UP" capacitors. If thats the case you most likely just need to replace the bad capacitors. Go to radio shack or electronics supply store buy the same capacitors with the same mF and volts. If you can't find the same ones then always go with higher voltage. Replace the bad ones with new ones following this video. Make sure you note the negative terminals on the CAPS before you remove them. The shorter side on the new CAP is always negative.

This monitor has 5 capacitors in the power supply that age prematurely. I can repair this for $50.00 +parts + shipping. Or you can take it to a local repairperson.

haha, been there. This ones a little tricky. Hope you have strong
fingers. start by removing the base. There are 3 screws. First pull the
base plate off. Then remove 2 screws. Next remove the little rubber
insert in the center of the base bracket. You will need a long phillips
to get to the 3rd screw. Slide out the base bracket. Flip the panel
over and stare at the lcd with the buttons side on the top. Grab a
small flat head screw driver. Look at an angle in each of the corners
between the inner black lcd trim and the silver outside trim. There is
a ****. Shove the flathead in there and pry outward toward the silver
trim while lifting on the black inner trim vertically. The trick is to
flex the black trim toward the silver and then pull up. There are 6
plastic snaps on the top and bottom, and 4 snaps on the left and right.
If you've taken laptop screens apart, you'll feel the similarity.
Once you pry the black trim off the front. Disconnect the LCD Menu button assembly and power button. Then flip over the LCD and lift off the back shell. Looking at the back, remove the 2 connectors for the speakers. Use a small flathead to pry the 4 Inverter power connectors. These 4 connectors have a clip on them and are usually hard to pull out using the wire. Once thoses 6 connectors are removed, remove the 2 phillips screws holding the AC power plug to the case. Also remove the 4 3/16 posts for the VGA and DVI ports. Next remove 4 screws, 2 screws from each side of the LCD assembly. Hold the panel face down with the aluminum tape in the bottom left. Lift the shield and guide the 6 wires through the cage. While opening, look inside and disconnect the flat ribbon cable as soon as you can. Put the LCD to the side. Remove 2 screws from the Video processing board, and 5 screws from the power supply. Note: 1 of the 5 screws is longer. Rotate/slide the power PCB away from the cage to clear the speaker and AC plug, Then rotate towards the Video board. Disaconnect 1 plug. The OTHER plug is SOLDERED and must be disconnected from the video processing board.
There you have it. It stumped me for about a half hour. No pry marks. Barely noticed the 2 slits in between the trims. Well, good luck. Happy Soldering.
PS: I opened mine because I assumed it had bad capacitors. It only powers on for a short short period of time.

Testimonial: "The instructions were very clear and step by step. Once apart, I couldn't see any signs of bulging caps so I tried resoldering some of the connection"
