I used to repair LCD monitor from Dell. There are 4 screws for rear panel and no screw for front frame. If there is no visible screw, you have to look for "capped" screw holes (little covers that fit flush with the case to hide the screws). If you don't see these neither, this must be 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. Hope this will help you to get the rear panel off. If there is anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

Please see my pictures here and look for bad caps as shown in my pictures.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

The monitor went dark, seems to have no power.


Totally darken the room your computer is in, and see if you can see a very-dim image on your computer.
If so, it could be the "inverter" part inside the LCD that has failed (about a $20 part, but will take a technician about $50 to $75 to disassemble/replace/reassemble/test).

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer, to see if the monitor is OK.

Why don't the ports on the monitor work?


This monitor has 8-port USB hub that the USB input of the monitor must be connected to the PC USB port. There are fuses for the USB port also to protect the 5VDC output at the USB ports.

Fist place to check will be the power supply, look for bad caps with bulging tops, check to see if you do have 12vdc feeding the back light inverter circuits, see example of failed monitors (90% are due to bad caps): http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

No Power LED and Nothing on the screen


Check your power supply to your screen cause it should at least show a amber light at the screen to show that there is power but no proper signal from the computer.

So below are step to check the power supply to your monitor. Assuming if you use a different monitor on your pc it works

1. Check your fuse both internal and external
2. check if power is receipted by the LCD
