After you remove the stand, there is a metal plate under it which will come out. Underneath that there is one more screw, (the last one). After that, carefully pry the case apart.

There is no screw on the front frame. This monitor has a tension fit case. So, face the screen up and look for "rectangular hole" on the side edge (usually at the bottom edge of the screen). This will be a challenge to open without breaking it. You'll need a very thin flat screw driver and wedge it into that narrow rectangular hole. You can use any prybar if you don't have screw driver. It is not too deep. You may stab something important inside and pry it. 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. Be careful, don't push too much force, you may break your screen.

How do i remove a harddrive from a computer case when only one side has screws to remove? Details: Okay so i'm trying to remove a hard drive from a computer case that only has screws on the back right...


In this case the hard drive is mounted in a frame. Look for mounting screws that locks this frame to the computer case. When you remove this frame you can access the screws holding the hard drive.

You need to use flat thin blade screw driver to crack open the case, starting at the bottom edge of the case first, you may need two screw drivers, when it starting to come apart, leave one screw driver in the partially opening section so it not snap back together while you tackle another section of the case. Most monitors cases these day do not have small slot to show where you should crack open the case at, they just do not want you to fix it.

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.

How do I get the case open on my Dell Ultra Sharp 1703FPs?


kenm951, You may want to see some vids on YOUTUBE that show disassembly of LCD monitors. Some of the longer ones (8 to 12min) are ok, but audio leaves something to be desired. The big question to you is why would you even want to open up your monitor?????? Bye for now. I'm louie12fix on fixya

Dell monitor


Tantong's description is correct -- press on side tabs and pry apart the face while working from the middle of the sides to the top. Once the sides are separated, remove the top, and remove the bottom last.

I am repairing my E173FPc Dell Monitor and to take off the back cover you must look on edge of frame to the lcd and you will see little Pry Slots. Get a flat head or knife and stick it in there, then give it a twist and "snap!!"..continue along the frame at about 4 inches apart till the whole frame is off (but dont take the frame off just yet. lay the panel down on the LCD on a Towel or somthing soft, then unscrew the 4 phillips screws to the stand and remove. then pull the back off. Now on the sides of the tin you will see 4 more screws,...remove and lift but be carful you must unplug about 7 plugs before you can get to take out the circut board but that has screws also that need removing.(((seperate and label your screws)))) or (((take a few digital Photos as you go)))).. THATS IT.. I WILL POST PHOTOS SOON SOMEWHERE THAT GOOGLE WILL PICK UP LABLED DELL E173FPc LCD Monitor repair Blank screen blinking green light specific>

How to open case ?


There are hidden hooks (catches) all along the edges where the front half and rear half of the case meet. Using something like a putty knife (something thin but very strong) put the tool in the crack between the halves. Start near the center of the top or bottom edge and carefully separate the halves. It takes some expereince, but you'll soon see the hooks and figure out how to unlock them. Then you place another tool in the gap you've opened so it doesn't relock, and continue working your way around the edges. Until you have more experience and figure out how to do it with only one tool, you should have a few or even several similar tools to hold the opened areas while you're opening the next one. Once you have three sides unlocked, you can pull the two halves apart. I appreciate your thoughtful rating.

Lcd monitor goes white


The E151FPb's seem to have a problem of this sort. After doing some research online I've found that the most common problem is a few dry solder joints on the large circuit board inside the monitor. There was also some talk of a connector suffering from heat creep that sound be connected better on the inside, but usually that would make the screen turn black if it were to become disconnected. The monitor can be opened by unscrewing all the screws on the back, there should be 6 screws you need to pull out before being able to open the case. After those, insert a thin, but strong piece of metal into the side and sort of twist/slide it along the side and it should pop open some clips and just work your way around the perimeter. After that it's just some simple and obvious screws to get to the circuit boards.

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. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
