Question about Gateway FPD2485W Television
Hi Jerry, I have bought three of them on ebay. One of them has all the right working parts to fix the other two, but I am having trouble getting into it. I have removed the three visible screws at the bottom. There are two what appear to be power buttons next to where the other screws are. They may not even be power buttons, ? they may just cover 2 more screws and it will easily open. But they don't wont to pop out and if I use any more force it will brake it. I guess I will know then, but after years of taking computers and laptops apart I know it is probably a clip or hidden screw or someone saying don't worry just pop those buttons out of there and get on with it. So if you have any ideas ? Thanks in advance. Mike
After removing the 3 screws you mentioned you are on track to open the case.. Next remove the 4 screws that hold the bracket for the mounting stand..Now look closely at the bottom of bezel notice the a large slots on each corner. Carefully using a screw driver with a big blade to match the slot.. pry the case open. I use 2 screw drivers to work hand over hand. it takes quite a bit of tugging to remove. If you decide to lift out the chassis from the front bezel be very careful because there is a small ribbon connector connected that is fragile. This should work!

I have not worked on this model of set. I was thinking along the same lines as you are. I do remember some monitors having hidden tabs under the edge of the cabinet. I had to use a very thin blade to reach the tabs. It was something like a remote control where you have to find the tabs to open it.
