Default Power Out, monitor will not turn back on?

There was an electrician in the house, who cut the power temporarily. After the power came back on, my monitor will NOT turn back on. I tried the thing where you drain the static power (unplug from wall, hold down power button for 30 seconds) and nothing worked. It was on a surge protector, and everything else on the surge protector is functioning fine. Is there some fail safe that I don't know about? Or do you think something in the monitor was fried. I have 2 months left on my warranty, but obviously that doesn't cover shipping which I'm thinking will be at least 50 dollars to get it to them. Please help!

Can you try a different power cord?
