    Thanks,



    I actually used a small screwdriver and used plactic shims to keep the case apart on one side while opening the other.



    The noise it made whicle opening sounded like I was breaking it, but nothing was hurt. I replaced the capacitors and now it works.

Take something like a credit card and slide it along the seam holding one side apart while trying to pop the clips with the credit card. You will ultimately bend some positioning tabs but nothing critically to the montior.

I need help removing the stand to my ASUS VH197D LED monitor so that i can attach my wall mount.


For the ASUS VH197D LED Monitor, turn it upside down so you are looking into the base of the stand. Squeeze the plastic tabs to unlock the base and pull. This will remove enough of the base to make it wall mounted and you can quickly attach the base if so desired. If you want to permanently remove the base and stand, remove the two screws that are now visible after the base is removed and pry out the plastic stand. This will break it off at the hidden screws. You will be left with a short metal stub that can be folded in.

How do I open toshiba ct-90287 case to dry buttons


I guess this is a remote control.

Remove the batteries and look around including inside the battery cover for any small screws.

Remove all screws - Even If there isn't any screws.

Next>
You need a fairly wide but thin flat bladed screwdriver to split the case. Place the blade of the screwdriver between the two casings of the remote control and gently twist the blade and the case will begin to split apart. work it loose - but don't foce it apart. Apply even pressure around the remote control with the blade of the screwdriver.

Once you have seperated the two halves - clean the rubber buttons with either Meths or Isopropyl Alcohol and also clean the circuit board with the same where the buttons make contact with the circuit board. Then reassemble. Your control should then be ok!

Attempting to remove the back or split the case from screen on a Polaroid TLX-01911C LCD TV. Purpose is to gain access to power supply. There are only two visible screws at the bottom and the stand...


it likely has plastic clips that go all the way around the outside of the housing, just gently pry it with a flat head until you see whats holding it, just be careful not to break the plastic, you can break a couple clips with uot a big problem, just be careful

How do I get to the CAPS on my FPD2185W monitor? I removed all of the screws but I don't see how I get the plastic cover off?


You need small flat blade screw driver or tweezer to separate the front cover from the back cover starting at the bottom edge of the monitor, see some pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Dead screen


There are 3 screws at the bottom of the unit. Take those out.
At the bottom get a small screwdriver and slowly start to push inbetween the plastic. there are tabs all around the side of the unit. You have to be careful and push in and it will snap open.
There isnt too much cable for the power switch, so you will have to disconnect the cable. this will allow the rest to open up.

Once you do this, 4 screws hold the LCD in place, remove these. Carefully from the bottom pivot the LCD screen. On the right hand side 4 connectors will need to be unplugged and one main cable on the left had side. Be careful not to damage the socket.

There is a metal enclosuer that has to be removed, once done open the top and remove the power board. There are about 12-14 capacitors that if you replace them. The unit should power up.

I have not worked on this model of set. I was thinking along the same lines as you are. I do remember some monitors having hidden tabs under the edge of the cabinet. I had to use a very thin blade to reach the tabs. It was something like a remote control where you have to find the tabs to open it.
