Dell UltraSharp 2407FP Power Button slipping

I purchased the Dell UltraSharp 2407FP from DELL on July 15, 2006 and now the Power Button is slipping. I understand that the power button has to be in the upright position in order to power on and off this monitor, but know the button is loose and keeps slipping to right and left making it so that you cannot power the monitor on unless it is in the upright position. Seems like something got jared loose, for the fact that all the other buttons next to it are firm and stay in place after pressing on them. I have to take a needle nose plyers ever time the button slips to the right or left and twist it until it is the upright position. It feels like the button is pressed in and does not pop back in the firm position like the other buttons.

I am trying to figure out how to get access behind the button so that I can diagnose it further. I do want to go back to Dell for the fact that I did not get the extended warranty. My monitor still works and keep in on all the time with Power Save, but it is a pain in the neck to know that something so darn expensive would have an issue like this.

Any feedback or help would be greatly appreciated

The monitor just made a pop and no longer works. How do you take apart to check if there is a fuse

2407 is almost the same as 2408 picture I have here, just be real careful not to move the front bezel too far from the chassis or you will break the cable! Use thin flat blade screw driver or special tool as shown in the video and work around the bezel REAL SLOW!

Monitor problem

It sounds as if the backlights are failing. It is probably cheaper to replace the monitor than anything.

It totally sounds like the backlight is toasted. If that is the case you will have to replace them. Normally if the power inverter is shot, the monitor will power up briefly at least and then shut off. If you can use a flash light and see some sort of image on the screen you know that your VGA chipset works however your backlight(s) are burnt out. If not, more than likely your power supply (power inverter chipset) is broken and needs to be replaced..
