Question about Acer AL1912 19" LCD Monitor
I cannot figure the dang thing out. It must snap together somehow after removing 4 back screws and 2 screws under the stand. Can anyone help, possibly send me the service manual, or an explanation of how to disassemble this bastard?
My screen went out after the power in my house flickered, and i want to figure out if it is the backlight that got fried or a component somewhere.
Thanks. Email service manual to Daveman123@hotmail.com if anyone has it. Much obliged.
The ones I take apart have a snap on front bezel.
gently pry at the lcd edge with fingers in center left or right to get it to bow , dont damage the lcd with too much pressure.
it will start to separate ,put a plastic knife or such in the outside crack and work your way around once you have one side the rest will be easier. you have to bow the inside edge out(away from the lcd) because of the plastic clips.

Ahhh too funny =) They don't make them adult proof for nothing.
Ok, get a towel, lay it on a flat surface.
Place the monitor screen down onto the towel
Looking from under the monitor there will be 2 main ways to "Disassemble the bastard" heheh Ahhhh ..anyway
Look closely where the front and back panels join. You should see two notches possibly holes there. If so then insert a flat blade screwdiver about 1cm into the hole and lift upwards. It should pop. Do the same for the other side, then gently just using your hands pop it around the rest.
The "theres no bloody notches here method"
Insert a flat blade screwdriver between the case and the top of the power socket. Again, just 1-2cm. Lift up (gently) and this should begin the popping operation.
Just becareful not to jam the blade in too far.

Follow the directions above for removing the four screws on the back, and then the four screws underneath the plastic clip at the top of the mounting stand that secure the stand to the monitor frame.
There are eight plastic clips that hold the monitor together - they are three on either side and two on the bottom.
They are located 2.5", 7" and 11" down from the top on the sides, and 5.25" in from the sides on the bottom (none on the top)
Use a plastic tool (such as an auto trim toll that you can get a Harbor Freight) to push in at those locations on the side seam and gently pry apart the monitor's two halves.
The power supply and video board are underneath a metal cover - it is attached by two screws and the turn nuts that hold the VGA connector in place.
