✔ Best Answer
It sounds like the backlight is bad but it might also be a bad capacitor. The next time the screen goes dark, get a flashlight & point it directly at the screen from about an 1" away. Can you see the display? If you can, that pretty much confirms it's a bad backlight. If the monitor is still under warranty, see if it can be returned for repair or replacement.
