Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
This tip will explain how to open the case on most LCD monitors. Most monitors will eventually have a problem with the power supply and need servicing. The part most people have difficulty with is opening the case to get to the electronics. You will need a phillips screw driver and a small flat blade screwdrivers. You will first need to remove the stand, place a bath towel on a flat table, lay the monitor down and unscrew the screws holding the base and remove. Next you will need to remove any screws that are holding the back plastic case on, they will normally be in the 4 corners and possibly 1 in the bottom center of the back. Now take the small flat blade screwdriver and insert it between the two halves of the case in the center of the bottom. Be sure to not do this by the control panel so you don't break it. Gently pry the two halves apart. Most monitors will have several plastic latches around the perimeter of the case, usually 2 on each side that will need to be released. As you separate the case halves the latches will release and the back will separate from the front. You will need to unplug the control panel cable at this time before you can get to the electronics. Now you just need to use the phillips screwdriver and remove the metal shield from the electronics to get to the power supply. See pictures below.
Now release the catches as seen below:
