  • 3. Now the plastic casing is able to be removed. Carefully pull apart the two pieces to reveal the metal casing as shown below. There are a few connectors you’ll have to remove before revealing the power board.

Seperate the two plastic parts by help of a slotted screwdriver or similar tool. Start at the keyboard side by lifting the black part and move to one corner. Now you should be able to carefully insert the slotted screwdriver between the black and the silver/front part at the side of the monitor. Carefully move the screwdriver to the top of the monitor and use it at the same time as a kind of lever to release the noses in the silver part from the notches in the black part (lever the screwdriver always in direction of the monitor center). There are three noses per side and four noses at the top side of the front silver part.

The top side may be easier to seperate if both sides are already seperated because you can now use the black part as a lever itself (carefully to avoid breaking the part!).

  • 4. Carefully remove the metal clips shown below.

This works fine with a slotted scredriver to raise the clips and grap and pull them out by a nipper.

  • 5. Once this is removed you’ll need to remove the black plastic connector holders. Then remove the four connectors, I suggest you mark these to make sure they are connected back into the same location when reassembling because the monitor was known to work this way.
