Removing oil-based primer from LCD monitor screen

My brand new Samsung LCD monitor was accidentally sprayed with paint primer (oil based?), which left four noticeable dots of paint. Samsung techs recomended only Windex or a 50/50 Windex/water solution, but these were no help. One 3D dot came off with my fingernail initially, but the rest seem melded to the screen. It's plastic, not glass, I'm told. Any ideas? Help!

    Thanks for your suggestion, Coldcut. I tried some extra virgin oil, but it didn't seen to help. Maybe I'll hold it agains the dots longer when I try again later.

Paint thinner is about the only thing that could be safe for most plastics. but as its dry that will not likely work.
try some extra virgin oil or penetrating oil and rub it into the dots.
if you can get it to take the oil then it will come loose.
but you may have plastic damage anyway where they melded.

    there are some plastic cleaners intended for screen but they are pricey and may not work at all .
    the thing I use most on all plastics is ammonia because the oils in human and the ph in ammonia are similar thus it attacks the human oils easily , paint maybe. I use it full strength all the time.
    no scented kind though.
    its what is in glass cleaner initially.

How do I remove back of a hp w1907 monitor to repair


This ones a little tricky. Hope you have strong fingers. Start by removing the base. There are 3 screws. First pull the base plate off. Then remove 2 screws. Next remove the little rubber insert in the center of the base bracket. You will need a long phillips to get to the 3rd screw. Slide out the base bracket. Flip the panel over and stare at the lcd with the buttons side on the top. Grab a small flat head screw driver. Look at an angle in each of the corners between the inner black lcd trim and the silver outside trim. There is a ****. Shove the flathead in there and pry outward toward the silver trim while lifting on the black inner trim vertically. The trick is to flex the black trim toward the silver and then pull up. There are 6 plastic snaps on the top and bottom, and 4 snaps on the left and right. If you've taken laptop screens apart, you'll feel the similarity.

My monitor still works great and I love it. However, in trying to move the tilt adjustment, the pop-metal tabs that slip into the back of the monitor screen snapped right off. Is there a way to purchase...


I'm pretty sure that these monitors are built/assembled overseas and it would not be worth trying to get buy a new base (if it was available). Your best bet is to have someone build you a new frame to support the monitor in.

Cleaning monitor


I dont know which type you have but here is how to clean either:

CRTs
Those big chunky CRT monitors have glass screen which are easily cleaned. The important thing to remember is that you don’t ever want to spray any liquid directly on the screen. Instead, spray the cloth with water or a mild window cleaning solution then wipe the screen. You can use the same damp cloth to clean the entire monitor case, as well. If you prefer, you can also use moistened paper towels to clean CRT monitors, You will be only cleaning the outside of the monitor case and screen. Never open the monitor casing which contain electric voltage that can cause a shock.

Flat Panel LCDs
LCD monitors are often called flat panel monitors because they are flat and thin. These are the types of screens that are used in most laptop computers, and they are also becoming very popular for desktop computers. LCD screens are softer than CRT glass screens, so they require some extra tender loving care. Keep your fingers and sharp objects away from these screens since they are susceptible to damage and scratches.
Use a soft dry cotton cloth to remove fingerprints and smudges from the screen. If this does not completely remove the dirt and splotches, use a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on the cleaning cloth that has been dampened with water. (A small amount of vinegar can be substituted for the isopropyl alcohol.) Again, spray the liquid on the cloth and never directly onto the screen. Do not use paper towels on an LCD screen as they can scratch the screen. Never use ammonia, ammonia-based cleaners, or strong cleaners which can cause the surface to yellow and become brittle.
It is good to have a special clean cloth that is dedicated to use on the LCD screen. Don’t pick up any old rag, as dirt particles in the rag can scratch the surface of the screen. Special LCD cleaning cloths are available and can be an excellent investment.
