How to open the casing of my LCD Monitor Model HP w 1907v
I have a problem of opening the casing of my LCD Monitor, I want to open it so that I can visually check inside.
I just bought that monitor from Saudi Arabia and I send it through a cargo company 1 month ago. I did not check the monitor yet after today because I went to our province for 1 month, when I tried to connect the said monitor It only open a few seconds and then there is no more light on the screen but it has a power indicator which you can saw on the switch light indicator.
If you can also pin point on the problem of my LCD Monitor I really appreciate it and it would be a great help on my side. I an an Audio & Video Technician before, thats why I am reluctant to open first the said LCD Monitor, expecting that maybe there are some loss connections only because of the handling of the cargo company.
Thank you very much for your help in advance and more power.

You will need a set of Speakers as that monitor does not have a built-in speaker system. Then all you need to do is plug them in using the 3.5 mm stereo/headphone connector in the socket at the back of the PC, usually the green colored one is Audio output and the pink is the Microphone input.
There are four tabs at the bottom edge of the case tha needed to be release to open up the case. Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed HP monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague http://www.badcaps.net
htommie, Watch some video clips at YOUTUBE under "LCD monitor disassembly" and or "LCD monitor repair" to see if you really want to do that. The hardest part is "PARTING" the rear plastic cover from the front "BEZEL". You also might find some info at www.ccl-la.com run by another FIXYA guy with nickname "buddymc" Hope this helps. 12fixlouie

But don't come back here CRYING or complaining IF YOU SCREW UP YOUR MONITOR !!! Bye for now.. 12fix louie
I had the same problem. In my case, one of the panel buttons got locked against the monitor case. I fixed it by opening the monitor case, loosing the buttons and repositioning them back to their place.
well being as how i just did this five minutes ago I can help:) The back of the monitor has a thin panel like a sideways 8 or a bean shape...this pops off then you have to take out the screws holding on the base once you get that off you can lay the monitor flat <carefully> and pop the outer black frame off <every so often along the seam you will see little gaps stick a thin flathead in if it's to tight for you carefully not to scratch or break it is plastic!> then you will see the metal case and find the screws on the sides and your there! Good luck!
Please check first if your LCD monitor is still under Warranty period, if yes, then I recommend to bring the unit to authorized service center to properly diagnose & fix the problem, because if you open it yourself & probably broken its seal then the Warranty will be Void & other problem/s that may arise / found will no longer be covered by their free service / part replacement.
If no longer covered by a Warranty, then you can open it by yourself, by turning (counterclockwise) its lock screws to open its back cover & check the circuit board parts / connections if loose/broken/defective. regards
