This is pretty characteristic of a failed power supply.
To verify that, one needs a capacitance meter that can measure not only the value of the capacitance but also their losses.

The problem stems from a weakness in the high frequency switching power supplies used in nearly all modern electronics. There are points in the feedback path where a type of chemical cap is used (electrolytic) that does not fare well handling high frequencies and eventually dries out internally or splits its case, losing its capacitance and developing losses that upset the feedback and finally do not pass enough signal to start and maintain the oscillations necessary to operate.

A tech with the mentioned meter could likely find this pretty quick but you need to ask if you want to invest the cost of a repair. The parts cost is minimal, probably under $2 US, but labor is costly and increasingly hard to find.

I have exactly the same monitor and when it comes time, I will repair it (when it still made sense, I repaired monitors - probably over 2,000 of them) since I have the required instruments and parts and also know how to prevent this from recurring - at least in my lifetime.

When you turn it on it does not work it just blinks and blinks

You can try to get it to reset itself by doing the following:
Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit and leave unplugged for 12 - 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the controls as you normally do. Hopefully, the 12 - 15 minute timeout, allowed the unit to reset itself.

Generally, this works 90% of the time. I hope it works for you.

Power turns off by itself once in a while. i turn

There can be several causes for this, few of which you can do anything about. However, a few things to try.

1) Replace the batteries on your remote control.
2) Try resetting the logic functions on your tv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.
3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop.
4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-video system? Changed to a new remote?

Good luck with your problem...I hope you can work it out.

Power turn off after 45 minutes to 1 hour used

Check the "Sleep Timer" settings. If set to 45 minutes then TV would automatically turn itself off 45 minutes from being turned on. The variance in the "on" times is due to the TV turning itself off after not getting a signal from the remote for fifteen minutes.

Good luck,
