There is no exact instruction, but first thing you have to do is to remove the stand, then starting at the bottom edge of the case using thin flat blade screw driver to pry open the case up and then work your way around the case, you can also look at YOUTUBE, just search for 'how to repair LCD monitor', 'How to open LCD monitor'
Bad caps (leaking/bulging top) are common failures. http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Just managed to open a FP17G+ monitor. My hope is that FP17G is similar and that this comes in handy.
There are 5 screws holding the casing together. Four are in the corners (black screws on my monitor). The 5th is right under the monitor stand (silver screw on my monitor.
To open the monitor, I had to:
1) Remove the monitor stand. To do so, you need to take out the two screws at the point where the base connects to the monitor (right above the pivot point) and slide out the monitor stand. THis should give you enough space to take out the 5th screw.
2) Unscrew the five remaining screws on the back of the monitor.
3) At the bottom edge of the monitor, there are two gaps between the front and back plastic panels of the monitor. You can place a wide screwdriver in this gap and gently pry apart the front and back of the monitor. Continue around the edge and the monitor will be open.
Best of luck... If you figure out what is wrong inside, let us know (I am trying to fix the same problem).
First of all it is not advisable to open up monitors without proper tools as they contain hazardous elements. Dell monitors however do have a 3 year SEPARATE warranty. Check on the back of the monitor and look for the monitor serial number. is should start with CN-xxxxx-,, or JP-XXXXX-. give that to a dell tech and they should be able to replace that.
