My imac 27  inch screen occasionally dims down and or goes black but does not turn off, does any one know what this could be, think I am off warranty now as well.

Try resetting both the SMC and PRAM

If no change I would suspect a hardware problem, like  LED backlight boards, possible cable failure, etc.

I would take it in for repair, or genius bar consult and diagnostic.
