Can't remove cover of Westinghouse LCM-22w2 monitor

I am trying to replace a board in a Westinghouse LCM-22w2 monitor. The problem is that I don't know how to remove the back cover. It almost looks as if a special key is needed for an openening in the lower left of the back cover. Does anyone know how to remove the cover of this unit?

Thanks,
Ed

Hey Ed,

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).

Russell

P.S. I have three LCD models from Westinghouse, LCM-22w2, L2210NW and the L1916HW. They all open the same way.

So these magical support screws, I see them, yet I cannot get to them.  I did something wrong obviously.  I have the front blk panel take off.  But the back (grey) piece is still attached to the lcd panel, so I cannot get to the screws.  Can some one please help me ?

    Just had to take my 22w2 apart today and I see the issues with accessing the 4 screws. It's actually pretty easy though. There is a square cover on the rear of the housing (approx 6x6 inches and has the 'westinghouse' model/serial sticker on it) that pops off allowing full access to these screws. Didn't even need a screwdriver to pop it out. It looks like it's molded into the back of the monitor, but it's actually a separate piece that can be removed. After removing those screws, you can start to separate the two larger halves of the monitor like the first poster suggested. For separating the two larger halves: If you look in the small square vent holes at the bottom of the monitor, you'll see 2 small black tabs inside the vents every few inches. I worked those out first with a screwdriver and the rest of the casing came apart with no problem (and without ugly screwdriver marks visible on the outside of the monitor). Now I just have to figure out the capacitors...

My LCM-22w2 monitor will now rarely start up. It powers up white-screen and won't do anything. Occasionally it powers up ok and works fine.


Open it up and look at the capacitors. The round "tin can" looking components. If the tops appear bulged, then replacing them may help. Check out the YouTube video... and web site...

wford451, You should open up the unit and inspect the "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter supply" printed circuit board for the common 2 problems that create symptoms like yours. Do some reading in my and other CCFL back-lit lcd monitor technicians fixya profiles. They are loaded with solutions to fix your unit. Your LCM 22W2 is no different than any other brand in it's basic design and operation!!! 12fixlouie

Has power but won't turn on


Make sure that it does the same with other PC first.
You may have problem in the power supply section, look for bad caps first, the problem can also be bad lamps (I had to fix one today with bad lamps assembly). This unit is really hard to disassemble, the switch assembly is attached to the front section, so be REAL careful when the front and the back section come apart, see pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Westinghouse%20LCM-22W3/

Hi,

I don't know if this will be a guaranteed fix for you or not, but you can try one of these.

1. Most Westinghouse monitors have an Auto button. Have you tried that?

2. If that didn't help, have you tried going through the monitors OSD (on screen display) via the menu buttons? You can manually control things through there.

As a side note, if it only happens when you play games, it may be that you have a driver issue. I recommend you upgrade to the latest drivers for your video card through either http://ati.amd.com or http://www.nvidia.com/

Hope this helps :)
