Well I doubt Im going to have the same success in this thread as your last but I will share my thoughts.
First is contrast / brightness settings, try and adjust them to make sure they are not out of whack.
Second is if your monitor has a auto adjust, try that.
Third, power try plugging the monitor into another wall socket, preferably on a different circuit.
Fourth, ususally LCD monitors use the same power cord as computer power supplies, try swapping the power cords.
Fifth would be to plug everything in, turn it on and see if lightly "jiggling" the power and vga cable, makes any difference.
If none of these yield any sort of change even slight good or bad, then my gut assumption is that its the LCD bulb or a general LCD failure. Maybe you can find a repair shop to look at it, something local that actually repairs stuff, not a box store like circuit city or best buy. Sometimes the phone directory can yield someone who repairs electronics.
Unfortunately this is all I have for now. Im going to sleep on it, let me know if anything above helps or not.
