Question about HP vp17 Monitor

1 Answer

The base of my monitor keeps separating

The base of my monitor keeps detaching from the monitor itself, and the monitor then falls onto my computer desk. About 2 weeks ago, the monitor fell onto the floor, and I'm wondering if something might have broken off, or is there a way of locking the base onto the monitor neck.

Good day to you. This is simply a loose base connector problem. The best way to tighten the base onto the monitor is to apply adhesive pastes like "mighty bond" or you can also tie a rubber bond onto it. Thank you and hope it helps.

How open va1903wb?

If there are no screws on the rear side to hold it together, the unit will be basically held together by internal latches. If so, then remove the base stand and screws. Then place the unit on a flat surface. Begin at the top side and curl your fingers and press against the edge of the front bezel lip area. With upward force, pull up until you hear a snap sound and the front bezel separates from the rear cover. Do this all the way around until the front bezel is completely separated from the rear cover. Then flip the monitor over face down onto a soft towel. Avoid any object under the screen to prevent scratches or nicks. Then carefully remove the rear bezel.

Can't install base on acer monitor

I, too, struggled with the same issue; however, after a fairly exhaustive search of the Internet, I came across a review that provided the answer: Attach the base to the monitor as you have been doing, but this time, place both base and monitor on the floor--while the base is still flimsily attached to the monitor--and then push down on the monitor. It will secure itself in place. It may seem like you are going to break it, but you won't. It requires little pressure--far, far less than the way we have heretofore been trying to push or jam the base into the monitor. Again, the key is to place the base and monitor (upright position) on the floor, and gently but forcefully push down on the monitor, using both hands, one astride each corner of the monitor.

How do you replace a laptop screen l555d serial number...its a toshiba.

1. Turn off the computer and remove the battery.
2. Loosen the plastic frame bordering the Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7005 Screen. This frame is attached to the notebook's back shell and holds the screen in place. Pry open two to six small rubber seals from the frame and undo concealed screws.
3. Detach the frame after removing all screws. Hold the bezel from either side of the screen and gently pull it away from the screen and toward you. If the bezel seems to be stuck, find any points of attachment, such as clips or hooks, and undo to detach it from the outer shell. Work with your fingers and go all around the frame to release and completely detach it.
4. Free the LCD panel from its position in the notebook's lid. When you remove the bezel, you will notice that the screen is held in place, enclosed in hinges. Undo screws from either side of the screen to release its attachment to the lid. Place a finger at the top center of the screen to keep it from falling down as you remove the screws. With all screws undone, tilt the panel and lower it face down onto the keyboard.
5. Disconnect the power cable and video cable from the screen. The power cable connects the screen's power source of the lcd inverter to the backlight lamp attached to a side of the panel. Unplug cables from either end of the inverter board and unscrew the board from the base of the screen. Next, find and unplug the video cable a broad, ribbon like arrangement taped to the back of the panel. Pull at the plastic head of the cable to detach it.
6. Remove the screen. With the screen's cables unplugged and inverter board removed, it is completely detached from the notebook's display assembly and may be safely removed. Pick up the panel from the keyboard and keep it to a side.
7. Orient the replacement screen by bringing it to the work area and aligning it to the laptop's shell. Gently rest the screen on the keyboard and attach the power cable and the video cable. Raise the screen and attach the inverter board to its base. Plug in the inverter board's cable to the screen's backlight lamp. Screw the screen in place and reorganize the display assembly.

How to detach the screen from the base.

Here is what I did on my last 2 moves with a 22" LCD.
Just wrap it in soft blanket like velour or a comforter and put it in a box so it doesn't move around. You could take off hte base but usually at risk. Most of those bases clip on and aren't really easy to slide out or meant to take back apart. You risk more damage taking it out apart then just wrapping it securely and putting it in a box.
