Yes if you can find the identical switch from the electronic sparepart shop and repair yourself.

Why does main screen say open?

The reason why it says "open" is that the DVD "door" switch, sensing if it closed/open, is either broken or one of the leads/wires to/from it is broken off at the soldering. Repair/replace the switch or re-solder the wire. I just repaired one unit where the switch had come apart; switch is made of 4 parts, the main part is soldered to the circuit board, then there is a spring, a plunger and a snap retainer which snaps close with the main body holding the spring and plunger together. The snap retainer comes off the main body vary easy since it is made too thin. It is easy to reassemble and then wrap a piece of tape around as to hold the retainer in place.

Osd main controls locked

I asked helpdesk Philips.
They think the monitor should be sent to them for repair.
If I send it. Sending, investigation and repair costs are more than a new one!

Actually nothing is broken, perfect view, and only the F**!ing massage appears every few seconds.
IS THE 2nd Philips monitor which broke down within two years. First one even inside guarantee limits.
1st: Stick a little Pin next to the button so it will stick. The Message keeps away!!! (Not a final, but a lot cheaper than send it over)
2nd: Never buy a Philips again.

Power button not working. Stuck in on position. How do I replace it?

warc619, Maybe the "button" is only thing broken. Maybe the "switch" is broken. Yoyu will need to see if you can view some video clips of monitor disassembly and repair at YOUTUBE first. Then you will need to "teardown" your unit and determine exactly what component(s) have failed and if you can get new exact same size unit from "Digikey" or "Radio Shack" or "Mouser".... WOW! you may even need to learn how to carefully desolder the bad switch and solder in the new one. Good luck with the repair. You didn't tell us what type of monitor you own!! CRT or CCFL back-lit LCD???? 12fixlouie

While I was using my hannspree hf289h, it just turned off and won't power up anymore. Is it broken, or can I reset it or something?

christerfred, I would think that if it TURNED OFF all by itself, and no matter how many times you push the on/off switch it remains in the OFF state, I certainly think it's BROKE. In fact I think that the "switch-mode-power-supply" may be in permanent SHUTDOWN mode. Here is a clue! When strange things happen to an LCD display, the first place to look is the power supply, be it a SMPS that lives on the floor or resides inside the plastic case of the monitor. I have worked on a few LCD displays and repaired a few of them. But I have never come across a magical "let it work" reset button. If Hannspree won't do anything in the way of warranty work, then go watch some of the longer video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD repair" @ YOUTUBE just so that you will know what is up with all the LCD monitors (all brands) that now have BLACK and LIFELESS lcd panels. Also do a visit to and for additional info. You will also need to do a search for the "LCD flashlight test" to evaluate the state of your Hannspree SMPS. After doing the above, get back here and tell me what you want to do. If you feel that the information received at fixya was helpful, please rate this response at fixya. I'm louie12fix on fixya bye for now.

Better that you bring the unit for repair, to check and possible fix of the monitor.

Replacement on the switch I think has to made, to put back into normal.

For any other related concerns, let me know

Have an HP LCD Monitor with a broken on/off switch.

j1hoo2, You will just have to go to YOUTUBE and search for things like::: lcd monitor disassembly or lcd monitor repair, or bad caps in lcd monitors, or repair of monitor SMPS/INVERTER power supplys. Yes!!! I have seen a couple of vids that show how to unsnap the rear plastic cover from the front bezel. That is the hardest part to do after removal of the monitor PEDESTAL. I'm louie12fix on fixya, or lmistyrel@
ps I've also heard that really dull table knives may work and also an old credit/swipe-card might work also.. I mean did an elephant step on the monitor on/off button???? Come-on, their not supposed to FAIL !!!
