Ensure that the cable to the back of the machine and the bottom of the monitor is properly connected on both ends. If another cable is available, switch it and see if the issue persists.

If you have another monitor, switch it out too. If you are still getting issues with the machine, it may be that the graphics chipset on your motherboard (or your videocard itself, if it is separate), is having issues.. If so, you'll need to contact the manufacturer or take it to a repair shop to see about getting it looked at and the parts you need replaced.

Backlight going out
Inverter card going out

I didn't have the monitor connected to the computer, and that's why the power button was unresponsive. After connecting it, the solution above worked for me.(My KVM switch was set to a computer that was turned off)

White out

Take the monitor back where you bought it from.

Sounds like the main board or the LCD panel have gone bad.
