Question about Dell W1700 17 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I'm attempting to take the back off of the set but am stuck. I can't seem to find screws that hold on the back panel. I tried finding the schematics of this tv online but to no avail.
Do you know how to remove the back of this tv so I can attempt to swap out the inverter?
Also, is the inverter the same as the backlight? How do I differentiate which is at fault?
I have just did this here is the solution for you:
Philips screw driver
Small Flat screwdriver
Make sure your desk is clean and you also need a piece of soft clothes because you need
to place your LCD Monitor face down.
How to open the back cover:
First, remove all screws on the back cover, then, use a small flat head screw driver to
the plastic Clip inside the LCD Monitor star at the bottom of monitor. Then you can easily
separate the front bezel and back cover like the photos shown below.
