Front and back of most LCDs shap together. Must be gently pryed apart.
Some KDS LCDs that have screws on the edge need to slide the front cover up a half inch to release from the back cover.

Does anyone know how to disassemble a Samsung sync master p2250 22 inch? last night it smelled lime burnt Plastik and I want to take a look, but there are no screws ot smth. like that....


It uses internal plastic clips to hold the halves together. Gently pry the edges apart until you find a clip. While holding the edges apart, release the clip. You'll find about 12 of these clips hidden internally. Good luck.

Have a samsung 203b (R) C lcd monitor that i believe needs caps replaced cant figure out how to open case no screws probably just plastic clips holding bezel on


The case is held together with plastic finger hooks type setup, it goes together real easy but hard to separate. I use thin flat blade screw driver to crack it open starting at the center bottom edge and then work your way around, when you get the bottom, left and right side part way open, you will then lay it face down and then pull the back up, just watch out for the cable attached to the front bezel.

How dose the case come apart


usually with LCD monitors there aren't many screws holding them together, instead they are held together with plastic tabs. You need to remove any screws holding it together (if any) and you need to pull the case open with a butter knife or a special pry tool (flat head screwdriver wouldn't be a good choice because it leaves more marks). you need to insert the knife or whatever your using and pretty much pull it apart gently, this isn't easy to do and you can risk ruining the whole screen if your too aggressive when opening it. unless your trying to fix the monitor, you shouldn't open it because it usually will look like **** afterwards.

My L1715S is completely dead, I am TRYING to get into it, I have removed the 2 screws at the rear/bottom of the case(the only screws I can find), but the cover is rock solid, I dont want to force anything...


I use thin flat blade screw driver to pry open the case, starting at the bottom edge (it Will leave marks) and work your way around. The case are held together with plastic finger with hook style, it goes together easy but not easy to take apart since they do not want the consumer to get inside, but that is how they make monitors these days. Also watch out for any cables attached to the front bezel.

How to open an LCD monitor.


I personally haven't worked on this monitor, but most monitors are held together with plastic clips on either side of the casing.

After removing the stand and all other screws, you will need to use a small flat-head screwdriver (or something of that nature) to pry apart the clips. Find the crease/gap in the plastic where the casing of the monitor comes together. Insert the screwdriver and gently twist and pry the casing apart. When you hear the first click/snap indicating the first clip has come apart, follow the gap with the screwdriver, prying it apart each time you reach an area of resistance. Do this all the way around the monitor.

Keep in mind that after you open up all the clips, the LCD panel and boards may be screwed either the front casing or most likely the back casing. So you must first unscrew the mounting screws inside the monitor to remove the back cover. Also be careful unhooking ribbon or speaker cables that attach the circuit boards of the monitor to the front casing.

Make sure that all three screws are removed from the back of the display. This is in addition to the four that hold the stand on.

How do I take the cover off samsung 930B monitor


The front and back covers snap together. Some come apart easily others are very reluctant and will break some of the retaining clips as you pry the front and back apart. Usually this does not result in a problem as there are enough retaining clips to hold it back together.
Most of these do not need bulbs. Usually just replace the power supply electrolytic capacitors that are bulging.

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


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.

Need to know how to Disassemble AL1912 19" LCD Monitor


The ones I take apart have a snap on front bezel.
gently pry at the lcd edge with fingers in center left or right to get it to bow , dont damage the lcd with too much pressure.
it will start to separate ,put a plastic knife or such in the outside crack and work your way around once you have one side the rest will be easier. you have to bow the inside edge out(away from the lcd) because of the plastic clips.
luck.

Is there an easy way to open this monitor?


-Flip the LCD face down and remove the screws that hold the base in place. -looking at the top edge of the LCD monitor you should see a small notch on each end between the front bezel and the back cover. -Using a plastic tool or a flat blade screw driver insert the tip and gently pop the case open. -Work your way around the edge of the case. -Once the LCD monitor is open unplug the control panel connector from the right side and remove the front bezel.
