Overheating or bad PCB from what others say. After about 10-15mins it starts right?

It's overheating and then the PCB can't function properly. Sometimes adding a fan works but if under warranty, ask for a replacement.

It seems like a rash of these monitors are being produced recently. I'll be very weary of buying one now.

Ok I found the fix. My monitor stop blinking by placing a fan behind the monitor to cool the PCB.
The trick is to open it up and remove the black IO shield that protects the inputs and PCB. Blow cool air back there and it will work.

This should hold you over until you get the new PCB.
I'm going to remove the IO shield from my other monitor also just to prolong the lifespan of the PCB.
