Question about LG Flatron Computers & Internet
HI everyone, I have bought 3 LG IPS235V-BN monitors and the displays are great. My issue is that the bezel on the left and right side is slightly curved causing for small gaps between the screens in an eyefinity setup. I have looked up some information on removing the plastic cover from the screen which would give me a flat metal surface. Unfortunately I couldn't find anyone that removed the bezel of this monitor before. Can anyone help me out? Maybe the procedure is the same for all LG models...

Usually there is a plastic cover that snaps off right about the keyboard that covers the hinges. It is sometimes screwed from the bottom of the notebook thought. Once that is removed you should have a clearer view of what needs to be done. Sometimes there is a few screws from the bottom or back of the system that hold the hinges and sometimes the screws are on top of the hinges. You should also see all the cables that go from the screen to the system, unplug those. Hopefully that is all you need to do, but sometimes you have to remove the keyboard and palmrest to get the screen off. Good Luck!

I hope I can help, It doesn't open from the back, it opens from the front.... carefully! There are four support screws, which hold the LCD screen to the desk stand,after removing all the support screws (4) on the back under the support stand cover.(which pull up to remove) (Remember! the whole case and face frame is plastic, so take your time). Work to separate the black face frame around the LCD from the silver case. Its held together by small plastic clips on the face frame to the wall on the LCD case. Start at one of the corners and slowly pry the face frame and silver case apart. (separate it inch by inch, work your way around the case carefully. If one corner doesn't give, go to another side.
Putting back together works reverse, the face frame and the case snap back together, Carefully! And replace screws (4).
P.S. I have three LCD models from Westinghouse, LCM-22w2, L2210NW and the L1916HW. They all open the same way.

First remove the stand. Then at the bottom of the monitor there are two small openings an inch or two from each edge. Starting there with WIDE flat blade screw driver (or a couple of them) it IS possible to pop the catches that hold the back of the case to the front. You have to go around the case very carefully popping each catch and preventing the areas you have opened from becoming re-latched. I found some wood popsicle sticks good for that.
If you search for "LCD Monitor Repair" you can find sites that have video's of several Dell models (but not this exact one) any that use the "pop open" case are pretty much similar.
One note after you get inside. The power supply board had the WORST solder job I have seen in a long time. The failure in the unit I repaired was due to open solder joints on the hi-voltage transformers taking out the power transistor's that drove them. It took me two months, but I found some replacement transistors on ebay and after resoldering many of the joints on the board it the monitor works fine.
I attribute part of the failure to the use of Lead free solder which is becoming common in all consumer electronics. It makes for brittle connections that fail easily and there is also the issue of tin whisker growth that will hit in a few years down the road.

ThndrChld's suggestions are great but way too complicated. all you need is a flat head screwdriver. the front bezel/frame/whateveryoucallit can be removed without taking the backside off at all.
the reason the power button gets "stuck" is because it is set off centered from the sensor on the chip underneath it and it relies on a little protruding arm to press down on the sensor...this arm has broken off. button is not really "stuck." its a stupid design flaw by dell or whoever they contracted to make the monitor.
take the screwdriver and just stick it into the seams along the side of the front frame (black frame) and wrench side to side, twist your wrist, etc, to open. you will hear creaking and cracking but thats ok and doesnt damage the monitor at all (though you may create scratches and dents in your casing), its just the clips and snap ins coming loose.
here is a shot of it opened. the chip is held in by 3 very small screws. there is nothing you can do about the power button being broken.
(see this pic shows only front frame is pried open, nothing else)
the way i circumvented this broken power button is to drill a hole directly through the bezel/frame to the chip itself. i turn on my monitor now with a toothpick (i dont suggest using a paper clip as i first did in this shot, it will scratch up the metal on the chip). you can see where the paper clip is inserted and shows that the sensor on the chip is offset from the power button.
do this or take it into a shop and pay money =). who cares about a nasty looking front bezel, at least my monitor still works.

If your laptop won't turn on, you could have any number of problems.
The problem might be a genuine power issue derived from either battery failure or simply a loose AC adapter.
Conversely, it may only appear to be a power failure, and the problem may lie with another component.
Errors in brightness settings and LCD display malfunctions can both make a laptop appear to be powered off, and all these problems will need to be corrected.
Look at the battery indicator light on your computer.
Is it on?
If so, check your brightness settings.
If your laptop appears that it is not on, it may in actuality have lowered brightness settings.
If the brightness setting is at its lowest setting, the laptop screen will be completely dark, and the laptop will appear to be powered off, even though it is not.
Try cranking up the brightness settings.
Check your AC power adapter.
Is it snugly plugged into the wall or surge protector?
Make sure the connection is made and it is not loose.
Also, try connecting the power adapter into a different wall outlet.
Check the status of your laptop battery by considering how long you have had the same battery.
Most modern batteries are only good for about 1,000 full charges.
After that point, the battery can and eventually will greatly deteriorate.
Replace your battery if necessary.
Replace your battery by powering off your laptop and then flipping it over and locating the battery cover outline, which will be near the bottom back of your laptop.
Remove any screws with a Phillips screwdriver and pop off the battery cover.
Slide out the old battery.
Put in the new battery by sliding it in until it clicks, and then replace the cover.
Consider replacing your laptop monitor.
Your laptop may power on, but if the monitor display does not work, it will appear to be off and you will not be able to operate the machine.
Check to see if your current LCD display works by plugging your laptop up to an external monitor using a VGA cable.
If the external monitor displays your computer contents, your computer motherboard and underlying systems are still working, but your display will need to be replaced.
Replace an LCD display by removing the screws around the bezel of your current display with a Phillips screwdriver.
Pop off the bezel carefully and remove it.
Then, locate the screws on the two metal brackets beneath the bezel and on either side of the display, and remove these too.
Disconnect the inverter cable, which is plugged into the inverter.
The inverter is located just beneath the display, at the bottom-center of the laptop.
Then, pull back and slide out the old display, and replace it with the new.
Put the metal bracket screws back in place, reconnect the inverter cable, and then pop the bezel in place.
Replace the bezel screws.
hope this helps
