My Dell UltraSharp 19" LCD Monitor's power button no longer works. I checked all connections and they were all OK, so I opened up the monitor and found that the power button it self was at fault. The back of the power button has a small plastic ball in it's center and that has broken off.
To repair this, the whole button panel has to be replaced.
Where can I buy this item? I tried DELL's wed site no luck.
On this issue, if it is the plastic button on the front bezel itself, you can repair it by using some 5-minute epoxy on the stationary part. I did this for a 1704FPT. Just don't glue the flexible arms to the front bezel or it won't work right.
If it is the actual electrical dimple switch, then you need to either find a replacement surface mount dimple switch (very tough) or replace the complete front panel control board.
Same problem here! It would seem that if you push too hard to activate the on/off on this monitor, well, it plain gives out. I knew to be gentle witih it as I could sense that the build quality was not there. My wife however, ok, you got it. To circumvent the problem I allow my computer to turn the unit on and off - just set the power settings (XP Home OS).

I suggets you try your Monitor with another pc and see if its behaving the same if the same then the monitor is bad
Now if there is change ie its showing on the other PC then your pc VGA card is faulty or is not seated correctly on its slot pls check this,
Also swap VGA cards this how you will know its status .
Is it stuck, or just not adjustable? Try setting it on a phonebook. I'm kidding. If it is an adjustable base, sometimes they need a little downward pressure before the button will depress and allow it to move upward.
some of the AC plug for dell monitor need to force little more than others. make sure the plug on the button is fully seated. (pull it out and reseat it).
the power button is the first one on the lower right hand corner.
First try on another computer just to see if there is any other problem then the LCD. Also check power supply to the monitor. I believe this has one that's internal, but if external, swap with a similar specs one. If internal, check to see if any popped up capacitors. Video boards are most likely ok.
