Re: Moniter back on whack!
Sound like you have bad solder connections, sometimes the break is so small they can be hard to find. Unplug the unit for a short while & take it apart to look for bad connections, most likely they will be on the main board. Monitors have more shielding ( to remove interfearance) so it typically is a little harded to repair a monitor than a tv.

First make sure that all the cords are connected properly from the back of the CPU to your Monitor.I suggest you to unplug all the cords of the CPU and then plug them back in after 10min. and make sure they are all connected tightly.Next check if the power cord connected to the Monitor is attached tightly.
If you still face the problem then you will have to replace it with a new power cord whih connects the CPU to your Monitor.It is black in colour.
Try your monitor on another computer, just to make sure it's the monitor and not a video adapter problem in the computer. It may be possible to fix it if you can find a reliable computer or TV service shop nearby. However, the cost may not be worth it for a 2-year old monitor. Unfortunately, the best solution is probably to buy a new one. : (
The green power light indicates that the monitor is receiving from the
computer correctly. I suspect it is going into high voltage
shutdown. There is a safety circuit that monitors the high
voltage and shuts the monitor down if it sees anything amiss. So
the monitor comes on and then shuts off. High voltage problems
are generally not worth trying to repair. Another example of a
worthless safety feature. High voltage failures are not
dangerous, and adding the safety circuit just kills the unit when it
may have some life left or worse, sometimes it is the shutdown circuit
itself which fails!
Hope this helps.
