Removing the case for a Compaq 7020 17 in LCD monitor

I'm trying to remove the cover for a Compaq 7020 17 in monitor. I have removed all the screws, but something is holding it together on each side about half way between the top and bottom. How does the case split apart?

The case has 2 plastic snaps en each side as well as 3 snaps at the top
Use a flat-head screwdriver in the **** between the gray and black plastic. Twist the gray plastic away from the black plastic, and this will snap the part appart

LG1917S-BN Access to power supply - Rear cover removing


You need to use flat thin blade screw driver to crack open the case, starting at the bottom edge of the case first, you may need two screw drivers, when it starting to come apart, leave one screw driver in the partially opening section so it not snap back together while you tackle another section of the case. Most monitors cases these day do not have small slot to show where you should crack open the case at, they just do not want you to fix it.

How to open an LCD monitor.


I personally haven't worked on this monitor, but most monitors are held together with plastic clips on either side of the casing.

After removing the stand and all other screws, you will need to use a small flat-head screwdriver (or something of that nature) to pry apart the clips. Find the crease/gap in the plastic where the casing of the monitor comes together. Insert the screwdriver and gently twist and pry the casing apart. When you hear the first click/snap indicating the first clip has come apart, follow the gap with the screwdriver, prying it apart each time you reach an area of resistance. Do this all the way around the monitor.

Keep in mind that after you open up all the clips, the LCD panel and boards may be screwed either the front casing or most likely the back casing. So you must first unscrew the mounting screws inside the monitor to remove the back cover. Also be careful unhooking ribbon or speaker cables that attach the circuit boards of the monitor to the front casing.

How do you get the case apart?


chrisc257, Yes, you too, will need to watch some video clips @YOUTUBE !!! Search and view 6 to 10minute clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" and stuff relating to "bad capacitors in lcd monitors" . Are you doing this as a SCHOOL SCIENCE PROJECT that you will be graded on? First remove the pedestal stand from the back cover.(screws or some locking TABS) Then remove screws from back cover. If you can see them. then un-snap the cover from the front bezel. Watch how they do it on youtube and be careful not to injure yourself or the monitor LCD panel.. GOOD LUCK GUY, YOU'RE ON YOU'RE OWN NOW!! 12fixlouie

Samsung 940MW monitor will not cut on. Green LED flashes only


Most likely it is a set of bad caps on the power board. If you are okay at soldering to do the following with the unit unplugged:
Remove the back cover:
  • Remove the 4 screws that supports the stand and slide it out the bottom.
  • Remove the 3 screws along the bottom of the back plate
  • Use a small flat blade screwdriver or plastic wedge (less risk of damage with wedge) to press on the release tabs around the sides.
  • When removing the cover make note of the antennae connection since you will have to work around this

Remove metal cover over circuit boards:
  • Remove 8 (if I remember correctly)screws securing the metal case. Do not remove the screws securing the LCD panel to the frame

Inspect the power board:
  • Look towards the top of the board for capacitors that have a bulge or brown "gunk" on them. If you have some that are this way this is most likely the problem.
Here's a picture of 4 bad caps on a 940mw. Once I replaced the caps the panel works great and had the same issue as yours.

Stem on lcd monitor can't be removed


Usually the stem has a plastic cover that hides the securing screws from view. You must pry up the cover to reveal the screws securing the stem to the monitor. This is most easily done with a Plastic pry bar or plastic putty knife. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Can't remove cover of Westinghouse LCM-22w2 monitor


Hey Ed,

I hope I can help, It doesn't open from the back, it opens from the front.... carefully! There are four support screws, which hold the LCD screen to the desk stand,after removing all the support screws (4) on the back under the support stand cover.(which pull up to remove) (Remember! the whole case and face frame is plastic, so take your time). Work to separate the black face frame around the LCD from the silver case. Its held together by small plastic clips on the face frame to the wall on the LCD case. Start at one of the corners and slowly pry the face frame and silver case apart. (separate it inch by inch, work your way around the case carefully. If one corner doesn't give, go to another side.
Putting back together works reverse, the face frame and the case snap back together, Carefully! And replace screws (4).

Russell

P.S. I have three LCD models from Westinghouse, LCM-22w2, L2210NW and the L1916HW. They all open the same way.

After removing the back cover screws that you saw, ok, there is a screw under the stand holder. Remove the cover that covers the stand holder joints. you can remove it using a flat head screw driver, it is removeable only it appeares stuck to the back cover. After you unscrew, use flat head screw driver and carefully by pushing to the side of the LCD bend. Carefull you might break the cover. Good Luck.

Compaq FP 5315 Monitor Disassembly


This is how I did it.

1- Remove the four screws in the back of the monitor. Two are in the bottom corners and two more near the bottom center ( these hold the stand in place).
2- Remove the stand.
3-The case back is held on by the four screws and a number of plastic pressure clips. After removing the screws: using a fairly wide flat bladed screw driver; insert the blade in either of the two slots on the bottom edge of the case and twist with medium force. This begins the seperation of the back from the rest of the monitor. As the crack widens, begin moving the blade of the screw driver along the widening crack (around the case edge) and twisting gently. This releases each pressure clip in turn. Separate the case back from the rest of the monitor.

I did this this way with my monitor. It works.
Good luck.
