Question about Dell UltraSharp 1907FP 19" LCD Monitor
1907FP POWER ON/OFF BUTTON IS NOT WORKING
There were no screws on the back of my monitor so that was not an option for me. I figured I didn't have much to lose, so I took a very thin and small screw driver and pried the on-off button right out of its socket, which does break it. To the left, inside the hole,you can see where a tab on the button pressed against a small circular inner button. I pressed that with the screwdriver and the monitor turned right on. I replaced the button for the sake of cosmetics and will never touch it again. If I leave the monitor for any extendd period of time I will simply unplug it.

In the front of the LCD their is a plastic ring.
I can't remember the name for this peice Blez ?? Anyway, back out the screws on the rear of the monitor and useing a plastic knife on the bottom pry open. Their is a thin printer circuit board behind the cover.

it is not the same. they are assembled differently. there are no screws on the back corners of the monitor to take it apart. it all seems to be one piece, and more difficult to take apart.

OK, thanks to hihai above, I was able (finally) to get into my monitor. A word of caution, though. Use a wide, thin knife and insert it between the grey plastic and the black plastic at the top or bottom of the monitor. (its easier at the top or bottom as you can distinctly see the deliniation between the grey and black - on the sides it's all black and the fit of this bezel around the monitor is so tight it's really hard to get in to the crack to pry the thing off). At any rate, once you get your thin knife (I too used a butter knife) into that crack, gently slide it to one end or the other. There are tabs near each end and a couple in the middle - you'll feel a bit of resistance near each tab as you slide the knife. Position the knife close to one of the end tabs. Rotate the knife handle outwards away from the monitor effectively prying the bezel upwards away from the face of the monitor. As you pop each tab, work towards the opposite end of the same side of the monitor. Once you have both ends dislodged, inserting the knife to pry up the all black sides will be easier. Unfortunately once you have the top (or bottom) and both sides loose the remaining top (or bottom depending on which one you started with) becomes a bit tighter to get the knife into.
Here's my word of caution. Be very gentle. While I was trying to find the way to get the bezel to come off I attempted to slide it in between the monitor face and the bezel itself and unfortunately cracked the glass face inside the monitor rendering it useless.
As for the power button, the button had worn down so much from use there simply was no travel left to push the contact on the switch board in the bezel. I tried a dab of hot glue on the inside of the power button to give it some more contact to the switch on the circuit board but didn't have enough. I was able to push the switch on the board with the circuit board removed from the bezel (with a tiny screwdriver not my fingers) and the monitor powered up fine. It was then I discovered the broken screen. Damn.
