Question Monitor Dead?

The Cable is good (VGA) Tested on second Monitor and test Bad Monitor on two working PC's

Samsung SyncMaster 941BW 19" wide

Light only blinks when on (Power button)

shows that there is no connection and AUTO is set, for Analog and Digital signing

This monitor runs 24/7 (well, WAS)

any ideas?

I am guessing bad port on monitor

Update: The port LOOKS good, but I am still not getting any signal from any PC attached.

Do you guys need more info?

Are there multiple ports on the monitor that you've tried? And each port on different PC's to see if either port works? Could be a display problem on it, could be the inverter inside it went out; hard telling.
