Bezel removal question!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys - only my second post so be kind:D

I recently bought 3 x 1280x1024 Flatron L1942P Monitors off ebay dirt cheap (£45 each) for some eyefinity fun.
I have already removed the bezel on one of the monitors to see what's underneath and there is a substantial difference in bezel size - so IMO it is worth it remove the bezels all together seeing as i can effectivly half the interuption between the screens - and i can still use the original stands too due to the screw holes being inbedded in the back of the monitor itself (not just the plastic casing).

There are a few problems i'll need to resolve first though.

1.) When i take the shroud off the monitor, the part that powers the monitor and the monitor itself becomes disconnected. I was thinking of using metal adhesive to join them permenantly. Would it be okay to use what effectivly is 'metal-glue' to connect these parts back together again?

2.) With the power box being exposed at the back is there any risk of electric shock or something shorting out? If so, is there any kind of box or make-shift shroud that would mitigate such a problem?

3.) There is a long green PCB running along the top rear of the monitor. Same question as above really - is there any danger to having such a componant exposed?

Any helpful advice or comments would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks in advance!

exposed pcb,exposed power box and metal adhesive to power it up.

it sounds like if even a tiny mistake could spell disaster.

if where u live is ver humid and dusty,dont do it.

 

if u do it,make sure i do the following-

1.if you are confident of using the metal adhesive correctly,go ahed.

2.try to find a solution to keep the completely powerbox covered.i mean COMPLETELY COVERED.

3.Cover the exposed PCB with electric tape.wont look good,but will probably keep it safe n clean.

Hmmm.... okay!

Looks like i'll just have to find a way to shave off the bezels at the sides if exposed power box is too risky. Don't wanna risk damaging my computer - or myself for that matter.

Thanks for reply!

LOL. Never been one to care for warranty unless it's very expensive brand new equiptment:D

And as i said in OP, i got these monitors on ebay for very cheap (just £45). Grade-B monitors (meaning they're refubished), didn't even come with kettle leads or dvi cables. Didn't even come with warranty.

If anything goes wrong i'll just buy another cheap 19" 1280x1024 monitor off ebay, so no big deal.
