I use thin flat blade screw driver to crack it open at the bottom edge so any scratch will not show up as bad, not much you can do from not scratching it up due to the way the front and the back are snapped together with plastic fingers. It is worst on the newer one.
Look for bad caps in this model.

How do you disassemble the case to repair light?


You remove all the screws and the stand, then use a thin flat blade screw driver to crack open the case starting at the bottom edge of the monitor first and work your way around, it is kind of hard to explain in words, just be real careful on the switch assembly in the front bezel.
You can also look a YOUTUBE on how to disassemble LCD monitors.

Just repaired mine. Had a couple of bad caps on the power board.
For disassembly, on the back the two hinge covers will slide off sideways, exposing 4 screws holding the hinge assembly to the monitor. remove that piece and you can get to all three screws holding the plastic monitor shell together. After those three screws are removed, its just snapped together so use a small screwdriver or blade to pry apart. I started at the button area on the bottom and worked up from there. Good Luck.

How to open (remove back) Omnitech Vw19B LCD Monitor


You are right about the problem on the flourescent, but the issue is caused by the mosfet transistors. You need to use a flat screwdriver to pry the back of the display until you get this open. Start from the bottom side because some damage will be left on the plastic.

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.

Display is blank...power light flashes at around 1 second intervals. display flashes +very faintly+ white as the power light flashes. my guess is power supply fault but... i cant figure out how to remove...


djreynolds, maybe go look for some clues at YOUTUBE and search for videos that are longer than 6 minutes and use search term "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" may turn up something!! Also find a very DULL butter knife to prevent visit to emergency entrance of local hospital when "PARTING" the rear plastic cover from the front bezel. Use extreme caution to prevent damage to LCD PANEL. 12fixlouie

Samsung 170 MP LCD Monitor Disassembly


The plastic case also has latches along the sides, top and bottom. Take a small flat blade screwdriver and go between the 2 halves of the case. The 2 pieces should open just a bit, now move the screwdrivers along the seam between the 2 halves. about every 2-4 inches there is a clip that needs to be released. You can release it by applying a small amount of pressure by each clip and moving down to the next one while pulling the case apart.

Need to know how to Disassemble AL1912 19" LCD Monitor


The ones I take apart have a snap on front bezel.
gently pry at the lcd edge with fingers in center left or right to get it to bow , dont damage the lcd with too much pressure.
it will start to separate ,put a plastic knife or such in the outside crack and work your way around once you have one side the rest will be easier. you have to bow the inside edge out(away from the lcd) because of the plastic clips.
luck.
