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 ?

    I have the same problem,
    Can any help with the procedure to get to the back 4 screws

  • J Mc Mar 07, 2011

    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.


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

Can't find correct setting for westinghouse lcm22w2 monitor


I don't know if this actually will fix your problem, but all LCM 22w2's are plagued with the 'white screen of death' and eventual power shutoff, including garbage characters and faulty menu, video output, etc. Here's how I fixed it.

The Westinghouse LCM 22w2 has bad capacitors on the yellow power supplyboard. This is a common problem plaguing motherboards and LCDflatpanels that use capacitors from Taiwan. If you know how to solder,or know somebody that can, it's actually a pretty easy fix. Take outthe yellow circuit board on the inside, write down the specificationsfor each of the capacitors (the cylindrical things) go to theelectronics supply store and get the replacement capacitors. You can goover the voltage specification (not under), but keep the capacitancevalue matching. Replace one at a time. Go to www.badcaps.net foradvice, tutorials and training on doing this. *You really shouldreplace all the capacitors*, but the very large one next to the powerplug I did leave on the board because I couldn't find a match. To mydelight, the white screen of death went away and it was working as new!

I saved a ton of money fixing this, it's definitely worth learning how to solder to do this.

My Westinghouse LCM 22w2 (1 year old) has developed a green line running top to bottom of the screen. I cannot get rid of it. I've tried turning the monitor off, changing inputs, reseting - but it's...


Unfortunately that is a failure in the display electronics and is repairable only by replacing the display panel. I don't know what the warranty period is for this model, but check your purchase date and the warranty information. If the thing is just recently out of warranty maybe the manufacturer will work with you on a solution. Or you can contact them anyway and ask. Sometimes if you complain loud enough it works wonders.

Your problem isn't precisely the same one I had, but I have the feeling you're not saying that this was a problem that gradually got worse over time and now it won't power up.
