My Monitor wont turn on at all, nothing but the light on the power brick
I just wanna know who to call to have it fixed? a TV repair shop? or a computer shop? what?
and anyone know how much it would cost to fix, maybe an easy problem like the fuse just needs to be replaced?

Re: No Power or responce when turned on
This is a Common problem MOST if NOT ALL, problems like this with this type of fault it is invairably a problem with the Power Supply, in the PSU Electrolytic capacitors dry out and often cause this type of exact problem... It is a relitively simple fix, by replacing the caps with new ones... Any good shop should be able to fix for a modest fee.. OR if ya know anyone handy with a soldering iron maybe they could do it for you there are generally about 4 - 6 to replace... in the PS section, just do them all to be safe.. Generally most LCD's problems can be traced back to a bad PSU... almost 80% of the "problems" I find in my shop are indeed this.

As you had stated that the monitor is working if the power brick is off.The back light shutdown might be a cause of static from your power brick, or other thing is it might be your setting for back light level or power scheme.Some configuration needs to open BIOS settings.To check if the power brick is the cause of problem is good to have a known good one or try to monitor if it is charging or not by monitoring the battery indicator if the power brick is off.
well if its not the power (bar, brick, whatever you wanna call it), then it might be the socket inside the xbox, either a wire short out, a wire came loose or unattached, or the socket transitor is shot.
What colour is the light on your power brick when it will not turn on? if its red thats your problem, turn it off and let it cool, remove any dust and make sure its well ventilated, if the light still goes red, you need to try another power brick.
Check and see if your power brick's light is on. The power brick is that black block of plastic on your power cord. If that light is dead then the power brick is bad. That should be your first item to check.
Does the cord plug directly from the wall into the monitor, or is there a power "brick" adapter between?
If there's a "brick" listen to see if the hissing is coming from the monitor itself or the brick. If the hissing is coming from the brick you may just need a new power adapter.
If there's no brick or the hissing is coming from the monitor, the monitor probably needs repair. With the price of LCD monitors these days compared to the price of labor, you're probably better off getting a new LCD monitor. Just make sure you take your old one to a proper E-Waste facility so it doesn't pollute the environment.
Could the power cable be loose at the back/bottom of the monitor? I'm assuming that you've checked the connection at the wall or surge supressor. And some monitor power cables have a converter "brick" in the middle of the cable - and the cable from the wall may be detachable from the brick. If your monitor power cable is like this, check the connection on the "brick" as well.
Confirm the way this monitor is powered.
Is it direct from wall socket to monitor
via a low voltage converter[Power brick]?
If it is direct from wall then it seems something internal has failed[you knew that!] and it is not going to be a Do It Yourself Job- because unless you know about these things- where are going to start?
If it is a power brick- check the out put voltage
and buy a replacement at any electrical store.
