You might get lucky ( very lucky ) if you power off the monitor, unplug it from the wall socket, and spray some PURE DENATURED ALCOHOL into the crevices around the power button. This might work if the stuck position is caused by dirty fingers from children or a dust laden environment
DO NOT USE any water based product in this endeavor, else you will be suffering far more then a stuck button.
After application of alcohol, let the monitor dry out for at least 10 minutes ( some would say that is to long but we are trying to be safe here ), then try physically clicking the power button. With luck your fingers will notice a small difference in how the button reacts to pressure. This procedure may have to be repeated a couple to times before the button becomes fully operational again.
Now if the button is physically bad ( can no longer be responsive to pressure ), only a qualified technician should try to replace it. With most of the monitors I have dealt with it was simply to difficult to get into the monitor to make it worth my while to internally troubleshoot them.
Good luck

I have a dell 1908fp monitor And the silver rectangular button is stuck which stops me from adjusting the height on the monitor. How do I fix?


I didn't think this model had a height adjustment. Have you adjusted the height in the past? Maybe the silver button detaches the stand from the lcd screen.

Dell monitor - when I put it in sleep mode (press the on/off button)it doesn't want to 'wake up' again when I return. I press the on/off button and briefly see the screen, then it goes black again. What's...


Computer is asleep or the controller board inside is failing to pick up the signal from the computer or you got a loose connection ether or here you need to check the computer and rule out the possiabilites.. From there if that does not wrok the monitor is going to need to be fixed.

My computer(a dell) is stuck on save power mode


The reason your computer is in power save mode is because the little battery inside your tower is going dead. It needs to be replaced. It is a small battery about the size of a nickle inside your tower. Change the battery and it will solve your problem.

How to fix a dell monitor dimension 2400 power button broken


The last guest left us hanging with, "easy fix" so, I ventured ahead to see what I could see by opening up my lcd, which was a puzzle in itself. After UNPLUGGING the monitor and removing the stand and the 4 obvious screws in the back, turn the monitor onto its back and placing your palms against one side of the monitor, and using your FINGER TIPS, gently pull back the plastic lip away from the LCD screen. Move along the lip, doing this a little bit at a time. You'll hear and feel it snap loose. Repeat on the remaining three sides. It may take a few rotations to free all the sides, doing a little at a time, so as not to put undo stress on the plastic that is not yet loose. The bottom lip from behind which lies the offending "on/off" button will not move as freely as the other sides because of the ribbon cord that attaches the circuit panel to the main body. So STOP pulling when you feel it become taught and carefully turn the monitor onto its face to complete the face's removal. Undo the cloth tape that secures the ribbon cable to the monitor. This will give you the necessary slack you need to do your dirty work. BTW, we're not disconnecting the ribbon cable from its connections- that would be bad - just remove that haphazardly placed piece of tape used to keep the thing snug and save it for when you're ready to close it back up. OKAY! There a four tiny screws that affix the green circuit board. You'll need a thin, jewelers type phillips head or a one from a synthe-sized tool set to remove these. Now, if your issue is like mine, you'll see when you again carefully remove the circuit board, that the on/off button has cracked off of the piece that holds it. This is why the button remained stuck in one positon when it was depressed. Re-align it so that it is uniform to the other buttons and place a few small strips of cut electrical tape to hold it in place to the end where it broke off. Crazy glue or the like won't give the button the flexability it needs and will probably just crack again. What the tape (I layered 3 strips) will do, once the circuit board is scewed back, is allow the button to return to position after it's pushed. I just did this and so far, after a dozen on/offs it's still working. Good luck. Go have a beer.
