The case is most likely snapped together. Check around the perimeter for any screws first, then use an old credit card to run around the edge to separate the plastic. Just go slowly and pry around the edge until you get the tabs to pop.
Once inside the back of the lcd, you should have two circuit boards. One will be for power and the other for feeding video to the lcd. If you have no video signal at all, then the problem will reside on the video board. However, if you have an image but the screen is dark, it may just be the bulb.
DIY bulb replacement is possible if you are familiar with electronics and soldering. Having it repaired professionally is usually close if not more than a new lcd.

I have a 18 month old inspiron 1545 and suddenly its display went to dead black. But still windows is loading up i can hear sounds and music but can't see a single blink on the display. Don't know...

Hi paramvirgull...

Hook your laptop to an external monitor and see if the screen comes on...if it does then your lcd screen is faulty and needs replacment.
If it does not come on then re-download your video driver/s. If that does not work.
Maybe your lcd inverter or backlight bulb is faulty and needs replacement.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

I have used a flatron W1934S for approximately a year and then it just stopped working. The screen is blank and the blue power button is flashing. I temporarily connected the computer to another flatron...

I'm sorry to hear that you have a problem with your monitor. There are a few things you can try. If these won't work, probably something fried from the inside that killed the monitor. First of all, try disconnecting the power cable from the monitor, if this is possible. If the powercable is hardwired (meaning you can't disconnect it from the monitor itself) to the monitor, unplug the cable from the wall. Reconnect and see if this works. This worked with a monitor i had that had this kind of problem. If it's still not working, and the powercable isn't hardwired into it, try a different cable. If this doesn't work, the LCD bulb might have gone bad, and needs a replacement. You can find usefull tutorials on the web how to do this. If you can, check everything inside. If something fried, it's dead, if nothing is wrong, the LCD bulb has gone bad and needs a replacement. I hope i helped you, if you can't do this yourself, please go to a computer repair centre and let them take a look at it, and i hope this problem gets fixed fast!

Sony Monitor just gone really dark

Cold cathode lights behind the LCD screen are dead or dying. If you like the screen go on ebay and look for the cathode light kit if available. You can search google for replacing the lights on a LCD screen and its pretty straight forward. If its not worth your time just buy a new screen, but replacing the long skinny bulbs will make it like new.

How do I take the cover off samsung 930B monitor

The front and back covers snap together. Some come apart easily others are very reluctant and will break some of the retaining clips as you pry the front and back apart. Usually this does not result in a problem as there are enough retaining clips to hold it back together.
Most of these do not need bulbs. Usually just replace the power supply electrolytic capacitors that are bulging.

Monitor gone dull

there is a key on the keyboard which controls brightness. on mine it is the second key on the right, of the bottom row. it has a small sun on it. Press this key at the same time as the function key (on mine, bottom row, second from the left, blue key marked Fn) - and the monitor will brighten up.

Monitors have brightness and contrast setup on them usually in a menu. A lot of monitors have a 1 button self correction that may work for you also
