Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20.1" LCD Monitor ?

I have a Samsung 204B cannot remove rear cover

\015 I have a Samsuny 204B Mfrd China April 2006 and I have reviewed all the pdf's and web pages for replacing the capacitors which I plan to do. However, my monitor doesn't have any slot for removing the rear cover. I took a sharp knife and I can slightly pry the case apart, but I'm afraid to pry it hard enough as I'm afraid I might break the rear cover. No pry slots... Any advice for me?\015

Answers :

Just did this repair. Don't need a knife, or any tool really for separating the bezel from the rear plastic part. Just get your fingers in between the bezel and the actual display. Each corner has a clip that is bigger than the edge clips. I ended up breaking one corner clip, but once that was off, the rest peeled off (relatively) easy. In otherwords, it like trying to turn the bezel inside out, starting from the inside edge - the edge touching the flat display panel, and pulling it out and over trying to get all the edge clips to disconnect. Start on one edge, and get one corner free, then work around the next edge, and so on until the entire bezel is disonnnected. Once the bezel is free, the back plastic piece is no longer attached and is just hanging around and can also be removed. Be careful how you handle the monitor when separating these pieces. I can imaging the entire assembly falling out once the bezel is removed. P.S., this is assuming the stand is already removed.
No it does not have any slots for inserting a thin blade to pop open the case, you need two blades, leave one in place when you partially crack open, then use another one to open another section. I would start at the bottom section first. It is just bad design and I hate it too. See some sample of failed monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
