Keep prying. Plastic clips are strong. You won't break it, maybe a clip or 2. LCD is in a steel case inside. The outside plastic is only for looks.

I have tried to open the case of ViewSonic VA1930WM LCD monitor. I have removed all visible screws and released all clips around the side. However only the front "frame" releases and is loose...


These units are more of a challenge to get open than most monitors. Here are the steps:

remove all cords - power, VGA/DVI speaker
remove stand - pull off hinge cover and then remove 4 screws
2 screws at bottom corners of case.
Now comes the fun part.
On the bottom edge there are 2 slits on on each side of the monitor about 3-4 inches in from the side. Use a small flat bladed screwdriver inserted in this slot to pop the two halves apart. Once you get a small gap just work your way around the entire monitor until the case halves are released from each other, but don't pull them apart yet. When opening most monitors the front comes off first but on this one the back case comes off first. You will need to again use your flat blade screwdriver inserted between the two case pieces and under the LCD panel and gently apply pressure. At the same time you will need to pull one end of the back case away from the panel, there are two plastic catches on each end that hold the panel inn the back case. One end will release then the other sould come right out so you can remove the back plastic case from the electronics. Now to get to the electronics you will need to remove the two screws on each end of the panel that hold the metal RF shielding in place. Also there is a screw in the center at the bottom of the panel that will need to be removed. Next unplug the 4 backlight power plugs. Slightly lift the shield so you can get to the flat ribbon cable going from the driver board to the panel. It will unplug from the panel by pressing in on the two release tabs, one on each end of the plug. Now you can get to the electronics. I am guessing you are having power issues with the unit. Check here for power supply repair kits if you need to get parts for your unit.

I hope this helps you get the case off, if so please rate my solution.

How do I remove the case from my Samsung Syncmaster t190 monitor? I removed the screws from the stand, but I can't get more than the bottom loose.

my daughter's 3 year old SyncMaster T190 monitor developed a fault last week -it switches on ok, perfect display for about one minute, then the screen goes blank. It's the same with either DVI or VGA input.Switching off for a few minutes enables the display again, for about a minute.
Other Samsung monitors exhibit similar faults, mostly due to blown Capacitors.So, rather than junk the T190, I decided to open it up and check for damage capacitors.
But how to dismantle it? After spending over an hour searching the web, without success, I had another go.
Here is how:1. remove the foot dish (undo butterfly screw at bottom)2. swivel the remaining stand post RIGHT back, as far as it goes (it may be quite stiff, I had to use WD40)3. stand the monitor on its top edge, you can now see 2 small cut-backs on the post, where it enters the monitor case4. use a small Philips screwdriver and remove the two screws hidden there5. remove the screw holding the two cover halves of the post together6. remove the covers7. the metal core of the stand, with its hinge part, is now exposed8. pull this out (NOT easy!); the part inside the monitor is shaped like a spade and is a very tight fit! I tapped it with a small hammer while pulling hard.9. when it is removed, you can access 2 screws that hold the bezel and housing together.10. gently insert a small flat screwdriver all along the four edges of the bezel and snap it apart11. the remaining parts can now be dismantled; some cables need unplugging (make a note of polarity!)
If anybody needs more information, please email me, I have taken some photos
PS - all capacitors were ok, I've no idea what's causing the fault.

It's not glued!!!! It's clipped together...and DON'T take out the screws first...

First, turn the monitor upside down and look at its thin edge. See where the grey bezel meets the black case? That's your clip point, all the way around the monitor. The reason you want to start here? This monitor is VERY tight, and there's a good chance you will mar the plastic, so it might as well be in the least visible place.

Next, fit a plastic trim removal tool (you have one of those, right? Right!? :) ) in between the black and grey plastic, halfway along the length of the monitor. If you have difficulty getting it in, run it back and forth until you find a loose point, but you'll eventually have to come back to the tight spot.

Here, there's a little bit of finesse have to pry the grey part (which I will start calling the "bezel") gently upward, not away from the black plastic (which I will call the "case"), perpendicular to it. This will pull a clip up out of its slot. When you feel the clip release, now you can move it slightly away from the case, but don't remove the trim tool. Keep unclipping the rest of that side.

Once you've gotten the hang of it, do the next side. This bezel is particularly tight, so don't start at the will definitely damage it. Once you've gotten two sides loose, the whole job becomes easier, but still stay patient and careful, because there's a lot of potential for damage.

Now that you've gotten the entire bezel off (and the hard part is over with), hold the LCD in place as you turn the assembly face down onto a soft cloth, like a blanket or comforter. Now you can remove the four screws from the back.

Lift the case off and remove the two screws holding the switch assembly. This will lift off easily.

Lastly, partially remove the silver tape holding the electronics case on the back, carefully remove the connectors (remembering their positions, of course), and you're ready to play electronic doctor. I'm posting this with my newly repaired L194WT. :)

Osd locked

Hold the menu/ok button for ten seconds, to unlock the OSD.
If this doesn't solve the problem, then it's probably the button that got stuck.

There are two things you can do to repair it, but both require that you dismantle the casing, which voids any warranty.. so, if the monitor's still covered by the warranty, or if money is not an issue, have it repaired by professionals on an accredited brand shop (check your warranty details for more information on this subject).

If not, remove the casing, locate the menu button's contact switch on the circuit board, and try to release it using something thin like a screwdriver, x-acto knife, or set of plyers.
If this doesn't work, chances are the menu button is stuck on a loop, sending a continuous signal to the board (which keeps locking/unlocking the OSD).

If so, your only solution (other than take it to a repair shop) is to remove it, by prying it off with a screwdriver or set of plyers.
Of course, you'll lose access to the OSD features, but I guess this is better than to have a message stuck on front of your screen all the time..

This is a tried and working solution, since I had this problem myself (with a Philips 190B monitor), and solved it successfully, with this method.
