I use thin flat blade screw driver to crack it open at the bottom edge and work your way around, when you have it half way open, lay it face down on the soft surface and then snap it open, just watch out for any cable attached to the front bezel.
See example of failed SAMSUNG monitors in my albums.

Philips 170s menu keeps on popping up


Sounds like a bad controller board. Board-level repair on a monitor controller board is quite difficult and bound to fail, for a number of reasons. You can look at the part number on the controller and try to locate a replacement online. Otherwise, the switch for the menu might be bad.

My Samsung 170s monitor has the top 1/3 getting darker than the rest of the display. I am thinking I have a bad CFL at the top but wonder what it will cost to replace the top CFL and how to do it?


look on ebay for a replacement one, or gogole the monitor to find out the model of light required, they are pretty standard for most.
once your inside your monitor, your realy just changing a bulb, however you may bneed to strip the thing down to get to the bit you need, swap to for bottom, just to confirm this is the problem before buying one.

Maybe the brightness and contrast control is not working . If you can open you monitor cover or housing try to adjust the screen control in the back of the plyback usually the plyback is in the back end of the board monitor. there is two hole adjustment the upper one is for the screen adjustment and the lower one is for the focus try to rotate or adjust the two but be careful to touch other part of monitor specially the yoke or the picture tube.
