Power button stuck in off position on Dell Flat screen Monitor
My power button on my Dell Flat screen monitor is also stuck in the off position. The other buttons on the monitor can be pressed, but it seems like the power button cannot. Is there a way that this can be fixed or do I need to replace the monitor?

Re: Power button stuck in off position on Dell Flat...
Does the button move at all? What model LCD is it? Most of the time if the monitor does not power up it is the power supply inside the monitor not the button sticking. The power supply can be repaired if that is the problem. Please let me about the movement on the power button and I can help you get back going with your monitor.

Hit menu button on the screen located three buttons left of the power button. Select Auto Adjust. The display will automatically adjust the screen to the centre. If your display is like mine, you may have to repeat these steps several, several times to correct the problem.
Hmmm...Stuck in power save. I guess when you push the power button, the monitor says power save, then blanks to power save, no matter if the Computer is on or not. This means the monitor does not see any signal from the computer. I would suspect the computer first. Try a different monitor (borrow one). If the size of the monitor picture is too high and the monitor is an older LCD, you may have set the image size too high (1280x1024 will not work with this monitor and it will do this very thing). A broken or damaged connector cable to the monitor can also cause this. Was the monitor unplugged from the computer just before this problem?
The front buttons on the plastic body of your device, are meant for just 'Touch Type Operations'. They may result in malfunction, if used forcefully.
As in your case, it is stuck in it's position. Now you may try to take it out by slightly beating the outer front near the button ("Slightly"). or you can use anything with sharp tip as a needle to get the button out from its position.
If everything else fails, you need to get it to the nearest repair center. As it needs to be unscrewed.
We have a dis-assebly and repair guide posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/monitor_repair.htm The problem is usually the driver transistors, our guide shows where they are and what to replace to get your monitor back running again.
CLick start/run then type in dxdiag. Go to the display tab and click test dirext3d. There should be an 3d cube that comes up and spins around. After the cube leave cancel everything else and close dxdiag, Your problem should be solved for a pretty long time. If it happens again just follow the steps again.
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?
