Question about Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor
It's got me. Any tips on how to open the monitor case?
If there are no visible screws, look for
"capped" screw holes (little covers that fit flush with the case to
hide the screws). If you don't see these either, it is probably a tension fit
case and will be a challenge to open without breaking it. Youll need to find
the seem and wedge something into it like a prybar (not too far or you may stab
something important inside). Once it starts to spread, start sliding it along
the seem and you should feel the tension tabs start "popping" open.
Continue to work your way around until it's off.

You should be able to find some small screws...just keep looking....but I don't recommend it. Unless you are a technician with experience you are not going to be able to accomplish much unless you have something very obvious...a blown capacitor or a burned spot somewhere....and even then, while not an art form, it does take some care and concern to replace a component. Also some components you may have to order (not available from a local supplier as a standard off the shelf part...i.e. a resistor) in which case you are waiting a while assuming you correctly order the right part (there are not a lot of monitor mfgs who put out detail electrical schematics). If still in warranty you are better off to send it in for repair. If not a fair number of TV repair shops will attempt to fix it. Computer shops don't bother typically....not worth the time nor effort nor do they have the prerequisite skills. That's why they don't advertise the service.
