    26" phillips, so I'm assuming 2 backlight lamps.

    bottom half of monitor is going constantly dark, though it starts out bright. Problem started developing a few days ago (though turning off monitor and back on again fixed it) - for months its had the odd flicker in the bottom half.

    So, backlight lamp or inverter board? I'm guessing at lamp because the top half is fine, but i'm really unsure about these things.

    Crazy thought but could it be some kind of power saving option either from the OS or software or an option you tripped on the monitor itself?

    *edit* just realised this does sound crazy seeing as it is only the bottom half, I should sleep more.
