Viewsonic vg2230wm power switch inactive

The power switch on this vg2230wm won't shut the monitor off. Is this a capacitor problem?

BAD CAPS here:

Look at the power supply for the monitor to check. It is inside the case.

It is either that or the power switch is defective.

Won't shut off. Fine, but how did you turn it on?

Why I ask is if the button that goes to the pushbutton switch is stuck ON or closed then what you say makes sense.

Now do you own an Ohm meter to go check that out? Or are you without the usual repair tools?

Bob: the switch clicks and isn't stuck. It just doesn't shut the display off. Right now the monitor is powered up and runs constantly. Two days ago it took 10 minutes before the monitor woke up. Before it did, there was a dim orange light in the center of the on-off button that flickered dimly. Then it turned bright blue and then the display appeared. I can dig up an ohm meter. What do you suggest?

Clicks does not mean it's not electrically stuck. 3 YR WARTY
