Where to find replacement key controller board for vp181 base

One of the keys on the base of my vp181 viewsonic monitor has stopped working.  it doesn't seem to be springing back when pressed.  it could be worn out from overuse or it may have been damaged by a soft drink mishap.  i've taken the base apart and observed that the actual key device isn't springing back.  it and the other six keys are mounted on a detachable board, so it seems I should be able to get a replacement, but I don't know from where?  any thoughts would be appreciated.

Won't power on

check your power supply maybe its too old to work for your computer. If the power supply is not the problem try checking the cables, there might be loose connections.

Also , you should check the power source of your home, maybe you have a low voltage and that wont turn on your monitor.

Ccfl inverter board

The most prevalent failure on these boards are the transformers and or the ic that controls the frequency of the lamp drive. More times than not you will find a bad transformer.
