Does anyone have a guide for replacing the LCD panel?

My aluminium-cased Apple Cinema HD Display (23") has developed a pink hue around the perimeter.

Rather than discard the whole unit, I'd like to buy another from eBay with a good screen but scratched up case and swap out the LCDs.

Can anyone provide a link to a service manual or other take-apart guide to help with this?

Thanks very much,

Adam

OldTurkey03, thank you for going to that effort but unfortunately those instructions are the for the plastic-clad (older) Cinema Displays and mine is of the newer aluminium variety (model A1082) and so these instructions don't apply.

If you happen to have a similar set of instructions for the newer variety that would be fantastic!

Thanks for the response though!

Adam Dimmick, in the meantime, check these instructions. Should get the proper service manual soon and will post an update.

This is the older plastic display.

The link in my subsequent comment should be showing the newer HD display :-) Let me know if it does not.

Hi OldTurkey - those photos are a big help. The service manual would be even better! From you experience, do you think it is possible to swap out the LCD panel and/or backlights from one screen to another?
