1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

Lately when I turn my monitor or computer off for an extended period of time, the monitor hangs in a "not on" state for a while before it turns on (The power LED slowly blinks on and off).

You will have to oen it up and inspect the inside.
Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, falied inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further.

The screen turns off after a long period of use and wont turn back on until having been unplugged for an extended period of time. Do you think this is an overheating malfunction (although it does not...

ferraric, You're halfway there! Now all you need to do is find the "THERMALLY INTERMITTANT" and "COLD/FROSTED LOOKING" solder joint on the power supply (switch-mode-power-supply) printed circuit board. Check all the larger and more weighty components first, including power transistors. I'm sure that the web has some pic's of what they look like! The cause of them going BAD is what is known as Thermal cycling! Hot to cold, Hot to cold. You may need a magnifying glass or an inspection microscope to view your printed circuit board! Visit YOUTUBE for disassembly vids and you better have a digital cam to document the teardown BEFORE removing plugs from board-mounted connectors. Good luck! louie12fix or aka 12fix louie

LCD display turns pink then goes off

You may be blaming the wrong device. I suggest you try the monitor with another system, the problem you describe could be located in the video output of your system instead of a monitor fault.

Monitor losing power

It has possibly decided to close down. Some monitors have a power shutdown as power saver of two or more levels. It may wake up from pushing a button on the monitor. Check on the screen settings to see if monitor can stopped doing this. I had a monitor that did this years ago, long since replaced.
