How to disassemble the monitor?
Before you disassemble the monitor, more precisely,LCD monitor (the most popular type of computer monitors today), think carefully about whether this is important for you. The fact is that you need to disassemble the monitor only if you are 100% sure that this will really benefit, and you can repair it (for example, replace the power supply unit of the monitor or the capacitor of the power supply unit). Often, it is more expedient to contact knowledgeable specialists, because dismantling the monitor is much more complicated than the system unit of your computer, and this must be taken into account. However, if you have made up your mind, but are not completely sure of your abilities, then our guide on this topic - how to disassemble the monitor, can be very useful for you.
Information and tools
Before we start talking about howto disassemble the monitor, we are obliged to warn you that the work should be carried out in complete safety, that is, the monitor must (!) be disconnected from the electrical network. As for the tools, we will need: a small screwdriver, tweezers and small wooden wedges or small pieces of iron to remove the lid. First you need to place the monitor so that it is convenient to disassemble. To do this, put the monitor face down on some soft and even surface. Perfectly suitable, for example, a table with a bed blanket on it or a blanket or bed, if it is not too soft. But the best thing is to put the monitor on the floor, on which the carpet is laid and something else even and soft - at least the same blanket. Paul is good that with his monitor, if something happens, will not go anywhere and will not fall. So, we proceed.
Dismantling the monitor
Putting the monitor "face to face", carefullylook at the reverse side of the product. You will see a few latches there, one of which we will have to open with tweezers. To do this, we cut the ends of the latch and push the lid off. At the same time, you need to remove the cover quite a bit - about half a centimeter, it is not necessary, as this can damage the structure. Further we will need one of the wooden wedges or iron. Having removed the lid, it is necessary to place the wedge in the opened space, so that the lid does not slam shut. Now you need to do the same with the rest of the latches, which can be a different number depending on the model of the monitor. Often during this operation, there are difficulties with the upper latches on the monitor cover. Here we will help a screwdriver: it must be gently pushed into narrow slots at the top, lightly pressing. But it is slightly, because the monitor case is a thing that is fragile enough and subject to various mechanical damages. Therefore, you need to choose a small screwdriver, and do not press too hard to avoid chipping and dents on the lid.
In order to minimize the risk of damage,you can use as a lever not even a screwdriver, but a thin wooden peg - it can quite solve the task of opening the lid. The upper latches are the most difficult part of the operation. Usually it is after opening them that the lid of the monitor can be removed already quite easily, since other latches open almost by themselves. After removing the back cover, you will see a metal casing. Carefully remove it and remove the dust that there will surely be. And here we are at the goal - before us is the "heart" of the monitor.
Before you disassemble the monitor, most likely,you will need to remove the foot. Usually it is fixed to the monitor body with screws that need to be unscrewed and carefully removed the foot, having prepared a place for the monitor in advance. Remove the back panel can be not only with a screwdriver and wedges, but also with the help of two screwdrivers. To do this, first push one of the screwdrivers (only with a straight tip, not a cross) into the junction between the front and back panels and gently push the panels apart. After that, insert another screwdriver into the gap formed, but sideways. Now move the first screwdriver a little further and push the panels apart again. You should hear a click - this means that one of the latches could not stand it and opened.
So, gradually move the screwdriver farther,holding the other god, and thus open all the latches until you can remove the back cover. By the way, in order to guarantee not to damage one of the panels, you can use special tools to open the cases of various electronic devices. These are triangular plastic petals, which are sold in many stores. Also suitable, for example, and a plastic card. After you remove the back panel of the monitor, you will need to disconnect the connectors as well, which, in general, is not very difficult.
