The Dell E207WFP is a flat-panel monitor. The E207WFP monitor has a self-test feature that checks connectivity with the rest of the computer as well as overall functioning of the monitor itself.
When the power button on the lower front of the monitor is pressed, the screen should turn off. If the computer attached to the monitor is off, the screen will be black regardless. The power button will light up green when the monitor and computer are on, and yellow when the monitor has been placed in "power save mode"; the monitor never actually turns "off."
If the Dell E207WFP monitor detects a connection issue or problem with the video performance, it will automatically run a self-test. The user can run a self-test also by turning the computer and monitor off, then unplugging the video cable from the computer. With the monitor plugged in, press the power button and the self-test should begin.
If the monitor is still under warranty, Dell can send a service agent out to inspect the problem and assess the situation. Pressing the power button should turn off the monitor when the computer is turned off. A part may need to be replaced or the entire monitor may need replacing. If still under warranty, this is usually done for free.
