You could be correct - go to the samsung site and see if it is still under warranty - if so explain the problem and see if you are eligible for a new monitor or free repair of the old one. I had the exact same problem with my viewsonic and it was under warranty and fixed and posted both ways for zero dollars.

If the monitor is not working, and not under warranty, there would be no harm in taking it apart, sometimes electrical issues are obvious, sometimes not. There will not, probably, be an inexpensive solution, as I think the power supply on your monitor might be dead or dying.
