Question about HP Pavilion L2335 23" LCD Monitor
Hi, How do I remove monitor cover for an HP L2335 LCD monitor? I've removed stand but can't find any screws!
First remove the stand. Then at the bottom of the monitor there are two small openings an inch or two from each edge. Starting there with WIDE flat blade screw driver (or a couple of them) it IS possible to pop the catches that hold the back of the case to the front. You have to go around the case very carefully popping each catch and preventing the areas you have opened from becoming re-latched. I found some wood popsicle sticks good for that.
If you search for "LCD Monitor Repair" you can find sites that have video's of several Dell models (but not this exact one) any that use the "pop open" case are pretty much similar.
One note after you get inside. The power supply board had the WORST solder job I have seen in a long time. The failure in the unit I repaired was due to open solder joints on the hi-voltage transformers taking out the power transistor's that drove them. It took me two months, but I found some replacement transistors on ebay and after resoldering many of the joints on the board it the monitor works fine.
I attribute part of the failure to the use of Lead free solder which is becoming common in all consumer electronics. It makes for brittle connections that fail easily and there is also the issue of tin whisker growth that will hit in a few years down the road.

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

SOURCE: Remove cover
Did you remove the base from the back? If so, there are two stating slots at the bottom of the screen. A fine blade screwdriver will release these tabs. Once down, the front bezel will pull away but you'll need a flat blade screwdriver (preferably made out of plastic). Slide this screwdriver between the front bezel and the screen frame which is metal. Don't allow the driver to get next to the screen because it will scratch easily. Using the driver you'll be able to pry away the bezel from the rear.

j1hoo2, You will just have to go to YOUTUBE and search for things like::: lcd monitor disassembly or lcd monitor repair, or bad caps in lcd monitors, or repair of monitor SMPS/INVERTER power supplys. Yes!!! I have seen a couple of vids that show how to unsnap the rear plastic cover from the front bezel. That is the hardest part to do after removal of the monitor PEDESTAL. I'm louie12fix on fixya, or lmistyrel@ aol.com
ps I've also heard that really dull table knives may work and also an old credit/swipe-card might work also.. I mean did an elephant step on the monitor on/off button???? Come-on, their not supposed to FAIL !!!
