Customer brought in Dell laptop Model PP39I with the power button not working.  The power button is in the hinge of the monitor.  Does the monitor have to be replaced to fix the power button?

Probably. The button just makes a contact (which is buried underneath the button) and the button is not removable.

If the laptop is under warranty or less than two years old, it is probably worth repairing.

If the laptop is 3 years old or more, it is probably not worth fixing. Look on eBay to see if you can find a lid or a carcass that you could transplant your motherboard and hard drive into.
