To remove the front cover you need to start by putting the monitor down flat on its face on something that wont scratch the screen. Next, remove the screws holding the base to the back of the monitor. (You might need to remove a plastic cover to get to the screws). Once you have done this check for a screw under where the base was screwed on. Remove this screw. Now check the back of the monitor for one screw in each corner. Not all models have these 4 screws,if they are there, remove them. Now the front and back of the monitor are held together with plastic clips. You will need to gently pry the front and back apart. Its easiest starting at the bottom middle and working around. Once you have separated the front and back, the inner circuitry is exposed. The control panel for the unit can be removed by unscrewing 3 screws that hold it in.

One of two general ways--if of course rear screws go that way, a lot of the monitors the entire front has to be pried off and is held with plastic snaps--you have to go in from front of set to get at the board/s.
If removal of rear cover is not possible (it may also have the snaps) I usually will use a thin metal putty knife to get the snaps loose going around either the front frame of the screen or the rear, has to be either from front or rear.
Take you time and do not use too much force or you will cause damage.
Remove the screws as you have done. Looking at the monitor front on you'll see 3 bits sticking down from the top (in the deatil gap) which are clips unclip them by pushing through the corresponding holes along the top. Also there's a clip at each side on the underside of the monitor which are very obvious. With the monitor facing down and everything unclipped just pull the cover upwards. It's not easy but work your way round the front edge and it will come.
Usually the stem has a plastic cover that hides the securing screws from view. You must pry up the cover to reveal the screws securing the stem to the monitor. This is most easily done with a Plastic pry bar or plastic putty knife. Hope this helps you with your problem.
j1hoo2, You will just have to go to YOUTUBE and search for things like::: lcd monitor disassembly or lcd monitor repair, or bad caps in lcd monitors, or repair of monitor SMPS/INVERTER power supplys. Yes!!! I have seen a couple of vids that show how to unsnap the rear plastic cover from the front bezel. That is the hardest part to do after removal of the monitor PEDESTAL. I'm louie12fix on fixya, or lmistyrel@ aol.com
ps I've also heard that really dull table knives may work and also an old credit/swipe-card might work also.. I mean did an elephant step on the monitor on/off button???? Come-on, their not supposed to FAIL !!!
The OSD button has gone faulty. The button will need to be replaced , or it might just need spraying with a contact cleaner like RP-7 or WD40. Both solutions will require the removal of the front cover to access the button.
I couldn?t find disassembly instructions for your CRT; however, I can give you some safety warnings and some general hints. If no one else posts at mine will either discourage you OR give you enough to start.
First off CRTs are dangerous, taking one apart without the proper training and precautions can kill or severely injure you. If you don?t already have the training and experience discharging the stored energy in the monitor you should not attempt it even if you have ?instructions?.
If you decided to continue on then there are typically four screws holding the back of the monitor case to the front panel. On some higher end Sony?s they are covered with a plastic cover that you can easily pry off with a screwdriver. Once you have them out then the back cover can be removed, exposing the tube and remainder of the electronics. Again a warning, unless you know what you are doing you run the risk of severe electric shock and should not proceed. Usually there are a series of screws that attach the chassis to the front panel, remove them, the panel electronic connections and the disassembly should be done.
