HP Pavilion f70 monitor has dislodged on/off button
The on/off button for my monitor has become dislodged and now I can't turn the monitor off, unless I remove the power cord from the wall. I think the solution is to open the monitor so that I can lift off the face cover of the monitor and re-attach the on/off button.
I have looked at HP's website and they don't offer any diagrams/ instructions on how to do this. Can you help me?
Thanks in advance,

Nor would they.
If you cannot see how to open it up then U suggest the item is a snap together shell and best left alone. If it is on all the time and the wall plug inconvenient- cut the power cord[unplugged of course] and insert an inline light switch- some times called a torpedo switch.
Any electrical store will have them.

I apologize for thinking so simply, however, your monitor has a separate power button and power cord. Therefore, even if you computer is off, there should be power to the monitor unless the monitor is not plugged in or the power button is turned off.
Check the power button and power cord for the monitor.
If the monitor does not show a green indicator make sure the power cord is snug in the monitor, and check the receptacle in the wall for power. If you find everything checks out, the monitor will need to be replaced because it is not cost effective for repair. The power supply is defective and sometimes involves the inverter transformer.
• 1) TAKE OUT YOUR LAPTOP BATTERY • 2) REMOVE YOUR AC ADAPTOR CORD, that's the wall power, remove it. • 3) NOW HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON FOR 30 SECONDS.
That will drain any static electricity that has built up on your laptop
system board and many times fixes the problem of a black screen. After
the 30 seconds re-connect your laptop to the wall power and hit the
power button normally and see if the laptop comes back up.
I'm thinking you are asking why your monitor has no power--just saying "no power" doesn't say much! Does this have a regular computer power cord? If so, have you tried another cord? Does it have a transformer that is inline in the power cord? If so, is there power at the output end? If not, that is the problem. If you have confirmed that there is power from the wall to the end of the cord that plugs into your monitor and you still get nothing when you push the on/off button, you need to replace or repair your monitor.
Hi, First, verify the monitor is functional. Monitor STFC (Self Test Feature Check) Turn off the monitor Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket to remove any surge protectors or APCs from the troubleshooting equation Unplug the monitor video cable from the back of the computer Turn on the monitor The floating dialog box should appear on screen against a black background. If the issue appears during the STFC, the monitor is defective. What are the results please?
Confirm the way this monitor is powered.
Is it direct from wall socket to monitor
via a low voltage converter[Power brick]?
If it is direct from wall then it seems something internal has failed[you knew that!] and it is not going to be a Do It Yourself Job- because unless you know about these things- where are going to start?
If it is a power brick- check the out put voltage
and buy a replacement at any electrical store.
