Answers :

This is the way I each all my techs to open and repair a monitor. First things first. You’ll need a Phillips screwdriver, rubber gloves, a fiberglass diddle stick(Radio Shack)aluminum tape, small cups and colored markers. Do this operation on a large flat surface. I suggest using an anti-static mat or large piece of wood underneath so as not to scratch the table or counter surface. First take your diddle stick and sharpen one end to look like a flat blade screwdriver. DON NOT USE a metal screw driver (metal causes scratches.) Now turn off the monitor, unplug all the cables and remove all the accessories i.e. stand, speakers. Take out all the screws from the back (these are different sizes so put them in different cups and mark their locations using a colored marker). Once all the screws are removed take your diddle stick. Insert the stick under the front edge of the screen. Sometimes you can use a finger to start lifting the plastic bezel. Under the plastic bezel you’ll see the metal frame of the screen. The diddle stick needs to ride on top of that metal and under the plastic. Once there you can move the stick up and down on each side. This will release the internal plastic catches and soon the bezel will pop off. The control panel my be screwed into this so be careful. At this point you can lift out the screen. There will be metal shield(s) covering the two circuit boards. A number of screws will release the boards. You’ll need to remove the nut screws from the video connector also. The power supply board is probably soldered on to the frame but that should be easy. That’s it. Do your thing and be careful putting it back together. The Golden Rule of service work – NO EXTRA PARTS. Good luck.
