Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
As I have same basic knowledge i electronics and I suspect the inverter having a problem, I would like to open the monitor (case). But these modern plastic case has few screws.. and some secret to open it. Short, I did not find our how to open it. Does anybody have any hints for me how to open it correctly? Thanks!
The Questuin was how to open the case. This answer was not supplied just "Pry open with a flat blade screwdriver" There are two slot openings with one with a "lock" logo. Is that there for just "show"

mine is an e173fpc model, I can tell you how to open it. I'm not the best with giving directions so sorry. If your monitor is facing you, you want to look around the outside edge there appears to be a seam going clear around. Get a flathead screwdriver and I started with the seam on the bottom...there are two little spaces down there that a flathead will fit into, just insert and give it a little twist in the first space it will pop it open a little bit, then do the second space. From there I really could not see any more spaces, but I just drug my flathead along the seam twisting it in about three spots on each side all the way around. It will work and it will not break it. Each time you twist the flathead a little it will pop that part off. I hope this was helpful.
