Having problems with your Dell UltraSharp 1905FP 19" LCD Monitor ?

How do you disassemble an Optiquest Q7 monitor without damage

\015 Removed 4 screws around perimiter, 4 screws near base plus 3 screws under base. tugging on base reveals a small split, but no amount of prying with small screwdriver and credit cards (short of doing damage to plastic) seems to help. Any ideas?Thanks in advance...Alcomp\015

Answers :

Though I have not opened that specific model, in my experience with taking apart LCD's you often do have to almost feel like you are breaking the monitor. the trick is finding there the tabs that hold it in are and then working around from there. I know that this is not much help specifically, but sometimes it just takes some muscle. I usually work across the bottom of the monitor first then up the sides. usually it is easiest to start from the bottom right corner, I don't know why but it does. I know your frustration as it all seems so often silly to me, because isn't that what screws are supposed to be for. So I hope this helps, at least as an encouragement.
Hi,

\015\012 It isn't uncommon to use molded tabs that would normally be found 180 degrees away from a few screws; i.e. if the screws you have found are located low on the back, carefully pry along that edge to see if it will come out; if it does, then the other edge may slide out when the first edge is pulled out somewhat.
Also, for cosmetic reasons (appearance) some screws may be under plugs that are fitted into the holes to conceal the screws. If that is the case, the plugs may be damaged when removing them

\015\012Whatever it is you plan to fix, if you remove the monitor case, you will
probably need to unplug the cable running from the circuit board to the
Controls/Switch Module on the side of the case. Use 'whiteout', nail polish,
etc. to mark the position of the plug. In more detail ...

1. Unplug everything from the monitor & let it sit for a day.

2. Put on protective GOGGLES. Place the unit face down on a wooden or
plastic-topped surface with lots of space and good lighting. Remove the screws.
Place the unit in nomal position.

3. Have a fat magazine ready. Slide the case off until you are able to see
the control leads plugged into the main board on the right side of the case.
Mark the plug position with 'white-out', nail polish, etc.. Unplug the
connector.

4. Slide off the case while supporting the monitor and slide the fat
magazine under the circuit board to prop up the monitor from behind.

5. Discharge the HV (optional, but, generally, a good idea).

6. <Do adjustments, fixes on Monitor>

7. When done, reinstall the control assembly.

8. Still wearing GOGGLES, support the monitor, remove the magazine, slide on
the case, reconnect the plug, finish sliding on the case, replace screws.
