  1. Could be a fault,

    Just contact Samsung for a warranty replacement
  2. From experience, it's just better to have it replaced. Monitors are much harder to diagnose what the actual problem is. ( I'm almost sure it's not a system fault so do not worry about that )

    sounds like the monitor's power board has a bad component like a capacitor on it being the monitor's power light goes off as that light is connected directly to the power board. I've fixed a few monitors that had that issue including my 19" Samsung Frankenstein monitor.

    That solution didn't solved my problem.
    Hope its a problem with the power board, as said by ffg7

    Thanks for the information :)
    I am also expecting a board fault.
    Will get it confirmed by visiting the nearest service centre, and update here.
