Power button won't turn monitor off?

Hi - I have a wierd problem - when I try to press the power button to turn off the monitor nothing happens. If I press any other button I get the "Adjustment Lock" appearing on the screen. I tried press the Power button and the Menu button at the same time and holding it but still nothing. When I cut the computer off - the monitor act normal and the monitor goes into the sleep mode and the orange light come on. When I turn the computer back on the green light comes back on and the monitor is fine. I would just like to be able to adjust the screen controls and maybe sometime turn the monitor off. Any help you could offer would be greatly apprecated.

Display not working, power button LED turns on blue for 1 second and won't turn on again

Have you tried checking with another monitor. Meaning that if the second monitor does not come on then the problem is with your computers mother board. But if the monitor other monitor you check it with comes on then of course it is your monitor.

Hi, I turned my computer and monitor off as I normally do last night and when I came downstairs this morning to turn my computer and monitor on, my monitor didn't turn on. I pressed the power button on...

You need your monitor repaired or replaced.
Unlike a computer, there is not much troubleshooting beyond making sure it is plugged into a live outlet and turned on which you did already.
Good luck!

My LG e2350 monitor won't turn on. When I push on the power button, nothing happens except that one of the light on the left lights up.

there's a button on the far left, that which when you press should light up the power LED. i know it's weird, but it does that.
just hold that for a period of i don't know how long, maybe 10 seconds til the power LED goes off. wait a while, then press the power button again. that worked for my friend's monitor that had teh exact same problem as yours.
you probably fiddled with the menu buttons before this. and pressed the "input" setting.

Restart the computer and turn off power save mode. If this is vista the power save mode has a lot of problems and can cause things like this to happen.

In power save mode

The monitor is not receiving signal from the computer. Is the power light on on the computer? If so - press and hold power button on computer until the power light goes off, then press again to restart. If the computer starts and you still have no picture it is most likely a video card or motherboard problem.
