Cracking open a BenQ TFT monitor

A TechRepublic member took apart his 17" BenQ TFT monitor to see what was inside. Check out his photos of the process.
TechRepublic member James Morgan recently took apart his 17" BenQ FP767-12 TFT monitor to see what was inside. What prompted the project? The front buttons on the monitor stopped working, so he couldn't turn it off or adjust the display settings, and the display was stuck on the lowest contrast setting. Although he went ahead and invested in a new widescreen monitor, he decided to open the BenQ monitor, take a look inside, and put it back together. In the process, he fixed the buttons on the front of the monitor and put it back together.

Check out the TechRepublic gallery of him cracking open his BenQ TFT monitor. (James detailed the process on his blog ...they were invisible, and he gave us permission to reprint the gallery and his captions.)

Thanks again to James for sharing these photos with the TechRepublic community.
