Open up a Syncmaster p2350

So, I've been having trouble with my Syncmaster P2350 the last couple of days.

The symptom is that it takes a couple of tries to get it to start (the other times it just flickers on and then off). The display doesn't have any warranty left so I thought I'd check if there are any broken capacitors (which seems to be a quite common issue) and in that case replace them.

Would really need help on how to disassemble the screen as there are no visible screws.

Did you try those Youtube videos?

Although it wasn't my exact model, the method used in the video did the trick.

Unfortunately there were no blown capacitors but at least I know how to open the display.

Tell more about your inspection.

The bad caps issue or rather plague has me writing that nothing less than perfect caps are acceptable. It does not have be broken, blown but could be leaking, dome tops, rubber gasket showing, tilters and more.

Do you know this issue?
