How to open case of Optiquest q7 - ViewSonic OptiQuest Monitor


Answers :

Almost all LCD monitors use kind of the same enclosure. On the back or on the bottom there may be two screws. If so, remove them. If not, no worries. On the bottom you should find a couple of indentations in the plastic where the front and back join. I like to use a Radio Shack fiberglass flat bladed diddle stick. Put this into the indentation and push up. This should release the bottom. Now the trick. Use this diddle stick (it must be flat bladed) on the front. Using only your fingers gently lift the plastic case on the front away from the screen. You should see the metal case of the screen. Begining at the local right or left put the diddle stick between the metal only part of the screen and the plastic front. Reminder. This stick must be between the metal screen enclosure and the plastic front only. Once in this position, you can slide the stick upwards along the metal case. As you do the plastic case will pop away from the rear case. Provided there are no screws you missed. Now do the same on the other side and then the top. You should now have separated the front case from the rear case. Next take apart the metal shielding (usually screwed together). There may be metal tape placed in strategic places, make sure you gently unloosen this tape and reapply when you're finished. Hope you know what you're doing from here!

Optiquest Q9 After about 14 months, my 19" LCD Optiquest Q9 monitor suddenly got very dark ( the bottom 1/4 was still viewable, though dark) and then went blank. After it cools for a while I can power it back up with the same results. There is a faint click when it goes black. I have replaced it with another 19" LCD ( different MFG.) which is working fine, but hate to throw this one away if it is repairable. The screen itself seems fine with no pixels missing at the time it went dark. There are
