how to disassemble monitor Dell 1800fp ?


Remove the base by the button release or 4 screws on the back. On the bottom of the monitor near the corners you will find two thin slots where you can insert a thin wide blade screwdriver or pry tool. Very gently pry the back from the bezel toward the center from both of these slots until the bottom is seperated, then contilue from the slots around the corners and up the sides until you have seperated the entire back from the bezel. Lay the monitor on the bezel and remove the back ( do not try to remove the bezel, at least not yet). Lift the tape that secures the ribbon cable from the bezel buttons to the logic board. Unplug the ribbon cable from the logic board by pulling on the connector (not the cable). Remove the cable covers from the back of the case (one has a screw, the other has a lift tab) and disconnect the lamp connectors and ribbon cable connectors (do not pull on the wires). remove four screws and lift the metal back from the screen.

On the back side unscrew everything you can unscrew, then using flat screwdriver with 1/4" wide blade try to disconnect halves of plastic case, there are plastic fixers over the edges, inside, so try to not brake them all :)
Next, you will need to unscrew metal cover inside to get access to the PCBs. If monitor was killed by surge, most likely you will see what is fried there. Check fuse on the PCB.

Opening case


My power button broke free and in case you're still trying, I was just successful with this hint on my 19" version of this monitor. I used two small screwdrivers, and with the monitor face-down on a pillow, I started with the left notch (near the kensington lock hole). The secret trick was to pry the notch with the first screw driver, hold it with my right hand, then take the second screwdriver and push in just to the left of that gap, and the first "catching-mechanism" popped free, releasing the whole corner. Continue working your way around, but pushing in to release the next catches, not so much twisting (less tearing up your monitor that way, too) - four across the top and bottom, three along the edges. Unfortunately, I do not have a way to post pictures.

Is there an easy way to open this monitor?


-Flip the LCD face down and remove the screws that hold the base in place. -looking at the top edge of the LCD monitor you should see a small notch on each end between the front bezel and the back cover. -Using a plastic tool or a flat blade screw driver insert the tip and gently pop the case open. -Work your way around the edge of the case. -Once the LCD monitor is open unplug the control panel connector from the right side and remove the front bezel.
