Question about Dell UltraSharp 1704FPT 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
My Dell UltraSharp 19" LCD Monitor's power button no longer works. I checked all connections and they were all OK, so I opened up the monitor and found that the power button it self was at fault. The back of the power button has a small plastic ball in it's center and that has broken off. To repair this, the whole button panel has to be replaced. Where can I buy this item? I tried DELL's wed site no luck. Thank You

On this issue, if it is the plastic button on the front bezel itself, you can repair it by using some 5-minute epoxy on the stationary part. I did this for a 1704FPT. Just don't glue the flexible arms to the front bezel or it won't work right.
If it is the actual electrical dimple switch, then you need to either find a replacement surface mount dimple switch (very tough) or replace the complete front panel control board.

Same problem here! It would seem that if you push too hard to activate the on/off on this monitor, well, it plain gives out. I knew to be gentle witih it as I could sense that the build quality was not there. My wife however, ok, you got it. To circumvent the problem I allow my computer to turn the unit on and off - just set the power settings (XP Home OS).
