HP Pavillion f70 monitor on/off switch has become loose.

Does anyone know where I can find out how to remove the front plastic frame to reattach the on/off switch on my f70 monitor?  Thanks.

Re: HP Pavillion f70 monitor on/off switch has become loose.

Welcome to the forum.


Monitor repair is not a recommended DIY project.  This is why you can't find any information on how to do it.  I highly suggest taking the monitor to a reputable repair shop.  This will save you money in the long run.

Re: HP Pavillion f70 monitor on/off switch has become loose.

If you can figure out how to get the monitor on just one more time, you might be able to then unplug it to turn it off, and plug it back in to turn it back on (or put it on an outlet strip with a switch), and avoid having to repair the power switch. If you do manage to get it on, check in he menu for an option for enabling this "remember whether it was on last time it was plugged in" behavior. On my HP monitor, it's misleadingly called Power On Recall.
