    Monitor is not displaying anything.

    Green power light is on but no picture.

    Just a dark gray, almost black screen.

I would check the cable and connector pins first. Then I would suspect there's a problem with the video signal board inside the monitor. It could be the LCD panel controls, too. That would make the unit beyond economical repair unless you got a used one.
