LCD screen removal & assembly

I knocked my Microteck LCD Monitor off the desk resulting in a circuit board of some kind to come out of the case.
It is still attached and the monitor is still working but has some broken mounting brackets. The screens frame came off , all except one corner. I am not sure on how to remove it completely. I am not sure how the board was attached but once I can gain access it may be apparent.

Does anyone know how the screen is disassembled and reassembly?

Thank you,

Rick Jones

If you can post the image of your monitor here, it would be great. Actually, I used to repair 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). 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.
Thank you,

My syncmaster 173 turns on for few seconds and than turns off

Its a fairly common problem on LCD monitors. One of the capacitors on the circuit board inside has probably failed. Its a case of replacing the capacitor, circuit board or the monitor.

Hi Help desk, My Samsung SyncMaster 540N LCD monitor is taking hours of time of display the desktop.what might be the case?Is it due to CAPACITORS popping out? Need a damn help from...

hi there,

Yes, it's capacitors issue.
I will explain how to fix it:
  • Open the case of the LCD
basically in all LCD monitors have two circuit boards (power supply board and system board)
  • After you open you will see the two boards are
  • You see a board that has a socket for the power source. wrote that the board we're looking for (power supply board)
  • Remove all cables connected to the board and take out the board. (get noted before you unplug it)
  • Now you see it components on board, we looking for capacitor.
  • Looking for damaged capacitors, physically you will see a capacitor on the top like a bloated
  • Replace that capacitor. Done
For More details please read my tips here

Please let me know the result

Power light blinking. no other response

The blinking LED mean that the display will not be shown to you and this problem belongs to short circuiting of transistor that are being connected with the mini transformers. The transformers boosts up the voltages for the LCD screen.
IF you are a technical person then handle the situation as i am going to describe. Otherwise, get it done by an expert in this field.

1. Open the back stand that holds the monitor by opening the 4 nos. of philip screws behind it as shown
2.After the stand is removed you will need to pry the back of the case off as illustrated in the pictures below. Use a small flat bladed screwdriver start at one of the release openings on the bottom as shown. Once you have a little gap in the case just pull the 2 halves apart and work your way around the screen.
After the screen unit is removed from the plastic case we can get down to the repair. We need to remove the power supply unit. You will need to unplug the 4 back-light connections (connectors with pink and white leads, circled in red) and the control panel cable the flat signal cable. Then remove the 2 screws from each end, then undo the 2 small nuts holding the vga connector to the case (circled in yellow).
Before you fully remove the shield and board assembly be sure to unplug the LCD signal cable that is under the boards as seen in the picture to the right. Now turn the assembly over and remove the 5 screws and the 2 plastic standoff clips as marked by the yellow circles below. Now with the board removed you will need to replaced the components that are circled. The parts are as follows:
3 Amp Fuse (yellow)
Q759, Q760, Q734 & Q740 - C5707 transistors (red)
Q743 & Q751 - MOSFET Transistors (blue)
The location number are for a E173FPb but the E172FPb boards have the components in the same locations.



I hope it is an understandable thing to do. Get it done yourself or an expert and get back your view...

good luck

Scepter LCD not working, can't disassemble

A little late but hey better late than never. I assume you have the screen assembly out of the plastic housing by now. The bar with buttons actually hides two out of the six screws that hold the monitor brackets in place. Pretty straight forward. Once you get the screen separated from the plastic junk, take off the thin metal protector in the centre at the back of the screen which hides the circuit boards. Should be just one screw and then slide the cover off. Make sure you disconnect the one electric connector that protrudes through the cover on the side before you remove it. Do not pull the wires, use a needle nose pliers instead. Underneath the cover you'll see two circuit boards, one with surface mounted ICs and one with capacitors and coils that the power cable attaches to. This is the board that needs repair. On this board are 4 small capacitors in a row in a small seperate section of the board. Two of those are a little smaller than the other ones. Hopefully you know what a capacitor looks like. These capacitors are rated as follows: two 470uf/25V and two 1200 uf/10V the 470s are the smaller ones. You can take the board out, make sure you disconnect all plugs and take out all screws, mark were they came from or better, take a picture if you are not faimiliar with this stuff. Then either replace the capacitors yourself or have somebody do it. The parts total about 4 bucks. Desoldering is tricky so of you have never done it, better not attempt it, get a pro to do it. When done, re-assemble in reverse order. Good luck.

White screen on xerox xa7 19i

I had the same problem but fortunately I have two of these monitors so could fiddle with the menus on the working monitor until I could work out how to fix it on the one with the white screen problem. Here's what you do:-

With the monitor on and the white screen showing press MENU, then UP 7 times, then MENU and presto! Your screen will be back to normal.

What this does is change the input from ANALOG to DIGITAL (or vice versa!) either way this worked for me.
