How to Disassemble a BenQ LCD Monitor

By Contributing Writer

BenQ is a Taiwanese multinational company that manufactures various electronics. Their most popular products include their line of LCD monitors. They are sleek, modern, high-tech screens that compete with all the major brands. Like their competitors, these devices can experience problems. If you own a BenQ monitor and it isn't working properly, you may have to disassemble it to diagnose the problem.

Things You'll Need

  • Phillips-head screwdriver

Step 1

Turn off your BenQ monitor and remove any cables connecting it to your computer. Lay the monitor down on a table with the LCD facing up to prevent damage to the screen.

Step 2

Detach the stand base by pushing down on the plastic locking clip at the point where the base meets the monitor while simultaneously pulling the stand down and out.

Step 3

Use your Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the six screws in the middle of the back of the monitor. Two of the screws are located near the top of the monitor, while the other four are located closer to the bottom, near the base where the stand is connected.

Step 4

Insert the tip of your screwdriver in the seam between the front housing of the monitor and the back. Gently work your way around the sides of the monitor until the back panel pops off.

Step 5

Remove each of the screws on the sides of the interior metal guard. This large square guard protects all of the internal components of the LCD monitor, including the motherboard. Once the screws are removed lift the metal guard up and set it aside.

Step 6

Disconnect the green motherboard from the frame of the monitor by gently pulling it out until its metal connectors unplug from the frame. Your BenQ monitor is now disassembled.
