It is an LCD monitor. LCD monitors over time give reduced performance as their backlight reduces. LCD has Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps (CCFL) Backlighting and in your case the backlight has reached the end of its life. That is why when you turn the monitor on it takes some time as these lights take time to heat up and give light. An average life of an LCD monitor is 4-5 years.
