Question about HP vs19 (Silver) 19" LCD Monitor
Does anyone know how to get the back off of this monitor. I've decided to try to repair it myself.
I've run into several of these screens with the issue being not turning on. In fact, the power light doesn't even light up. Here's how I make it like new:
1) remove the base via three screws attaching it to the screen.
2) using a flat head screw driver (-) and applying enough pressure on the opposite side of the screen, gently insert the blade of the driver into the cracks between the front and rear pieces of the monitor (grey in color). Work your way around gently and this will separate the two halves.
3) from here, work your way to the boards. In the revision of this model I am used to working on, there are two boards. The problem is on the power board (beige in color).
4) once separated, locate on the beige power board three capacitors with ratings of 470uF 25V. They should be located in a corner of the board. All the ones I have encountered are oozing from the top of the capacitors. Replace these three (or any other capacitors oozing or raised up on the top) with capacitors of the SAME RATING (VERY IMPORTANT). Once new capacitors are installed, put the monitor back together and voila! Just like new.

Had the same problem with my HP vs19. Opened it up and by disconnecting the video input cable to the lcd, the power would stay on. The problem now is to see if I can find a lcd for this monitor that is reasonable. My HP vs19 is a product nuber P8726AA and I am going to see if I can get the part direct from the manufacturer of the lcd since HP does not sell any internal parts for this monitor.

Those tabs are tricky but if you use you credit card or thing similar to rease the tabs and you should be OK. But al the parts inside are sevicable parts and should have knowlage how the monitor works!

My hp f70 had two release buttons on the bottom of the frame these release two major 'hooks' that hold on the face plate. Once these are release you can use a flat blade screw driver to go around the edges and pop the pressure clips along the groove. Use a screwdriver at the very top edge to start poping the top clips as well since there is no groove up there.

Artifixit is dead on. I had to access the power supply to find a problem (haven't found it yet LOL), and a credit card works pretty well for working your way around. However, don't forget to take the base off first. There are three screws, two exposed, the third you must pop off the cap of the base unit to gain access to. After that, you're home free. The display has two fuses, one is the main one, "F801" (serviceable!), right next to the "line in", and another one, "F802", a soldered-in one on the opposite side of the power board. (The power board is the one the cord goes into) You will have to remove the metal sheild, ofcourse, to gain access to the circuit board. In MY case, neither fuse was the problem... I am still trying to track down the source of my display's demise. (No power indication, no indication of anything at all going on - totally dead)
Good luck with yours, and if your problem is the same as mine, and you find YOUR gremlin, please let me know...?

Unless there are some screws on around the outer edge on the rear of the monitor it looks like this could be a snap fit design.
A snap fit design would mean the front bezel (the plastic that is around the monitor in the front) is held in by clips in the frame work.
The best way to get this type off is using a plastic edge like on a credit card and slide it inbetween the bezel and back casing. Work your way along the edge and it will usually pop out a little, keep going until you have gone all the way around and hopefully the front bezel will pop off.
As noted before, there aren't many serviceable parts in there unless you have very good understanding of power supplies etc, and HP won't supply any internal components for this monitor.

I strongly advice you not to do that. For there are very few servicable parts in an LCD screen. You can try though if your technical knowledge is good enough. If it's still under warranty contact HP or your retailer for a repair/replacement.
Anyhow, what seems to be the defect on your HP monitor?

If you can't get the back off the monitor, there probably isn't much you can do to repair it on the inside.
