I don't know about the Xsun24 driver, but the Xsun driver doesn't look
at /etc/X11/XF86Config at all, simply because it isn't an XFree86

That sounds like pretty easy to repair. Check the cable, the connector
at the back of the monitor, and all connectors and cables in the
monitor itself (remember to disconnect the monitor from the mains and
discharge it). If that's all OK, check the PCBs for damages, and for
parts that have come loose (tricky to find, look for soldering joints
with tiny cracks in it). If that's also OK, it's time to get the
schematics and check all components in the blue signal path.
