The power button on my AOC monitor is getting worse. To start with the would turn itself on or off with no intervention by me! Now it is getting almost impossible to turn on or off when I want to. I have provided a picture (http://homepages.xnet.co.nz/%7Ejsd/PSW.jpg) (not very clear sorry) of the type of button (which is in a small panel that seems to have a layer of plastic over it). Has anyone else had this happen - how can it be repaired?

I leave mine ON all the time.
It sleeps and uses very little power when not in use.
Maybe 20c a week when sleeping.

I had issues with one of those AOC monitors a while ago, I simply ripped off the top plastic piece and used a small screwdriver to short the contacts behind.

Maybe bad solder joint or broken button

Should be easy to replace - open monitor, resolder or replace button....

Ok - thanks for the advice - I will have to try and get it to pieces sometime.

Good luck, monitors are tricky to get apart, tried an acer that died to have a go but nearly destroyed it just getting it apart. Check google on tips on that brand of monitor if you have never done them before. Might help
