Stjohnschris, If Samsung warranty no longer usable option, then you will need to fix it yourself. Have you even checked with Samsung to see if they offer a "cash+old unit" swapout program?? Watch a few video clips at YOUTUBE after search with these terms: "lcd monitor disassembly" "lcd monitor repair. Then come back to FIXYA and do lots of reading in the fixya PROFILES of "budmrtn" "buddymc" "12fixlouie" (me) for more help and links that you will need to repair the 245BW. Keep us informed by doing additional REPLYS to this posting. 12fixlouie
