SOURCE: Monitor won't display.
I would suggest that the "Event" that caused the CB to trip has caused ya Monitor to fail.. Probably in the Power Supply, My "Pet" area... lol.. anyway Thats wat I would think. It may even have an internal "Fuse" that has "Blown"?

Just had the same problem... what worked for me was simple. Unplug the cable from the monitor, hit the power button a few times until Dell screen poped up with a few color bars because it knew it was no longer connected to a PC. Then plugged the cable back in and all was fixed.

I didn't have the monitor connected to the computer, and that's why the power button was unresponsive. After connecting it, the solution above worked for me.(My KVM switch was set to a computer that was turned off)

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.

Ok if it the monitor works fine on another unit discount it out of the equation as a monitor problem.
I would suspect the driver on the PC that delivers the problem, especially the video card.
. Check that the cable is also on tightly. remove it and even clean the pins and replug it .the plug on that PC may be dirty
You May need to replace the video card as the communication to the monitor is intermittent and that is why you get the amber light.
Open the box with power off. clean the card if it has a lot of dust on it ( most do and its always a shock) wipe it over ( BOTH SIDES) and then try to start it up as usual with the monitor connected to see if that fixed it ( sometimes works) if not get another card and replace it. Best I can offer without being there to help on the spot.
A new card should allow you access to install and configure it and these days they are pretty cheap to buy

Tips for a great answer:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE
MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look
different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is
normal. If it works ok in safe mode then the monitor is ok and we might have an issue with a setting.
Try connecting another monitor to your computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same thing as your original monitor then the issue is with the computer (possibly the video card).
