Glad you solved your problems, great ingenuity and info for everyone
Dream seller said he can do an invoice with low value ( actually He proposed it when I asked for the invoice, but since the customs said that they also wanted the paypal payment history, it was not possible). But yeah, I think it's not very legal
for those who want to disassemble the achieva, it's a bit difficult (hope you will understand with my english
The first and hardest part is to separate the black bezel from the white one, the problem is that they are clipped and glued with double sided tape. You need to separate them in order to access to the screws that attach the white bezel to the housing.
(I made the photos during reassembling).
It is easier to pull it out if you do it from the inner side of the bezel, but you need to be very careful to not harm the panel, there is glue only at the bottom, and a little on the sides, so once you've pried open the botom, you're done. (uncliping is easy)
Now you have this :
just unscrew the screws
and then unclip the white bezel (from the outside of the bezel)
Now these 2 screws are the only ones that attach the panel to the housing :
lift up a little the panel from the botom or right side and you'll see the internal and where to unplug the cables to completely separate the panel from the housing.
Now, for fixing the buzzing sound :
the panel pcb (where are the buzzing chokes) is behind this :
I did not take a photo, but it's nearly the same as the catleap one (photo from ScribbyDaGreat) :
edit : better with some paint works
We can see one, the component with "220" written upside-down, the other one is hidden under the little black square foam, cover them with epoxy glue, and it will shut them up. 100% success on my monitor, which was quite loud. Now it's deadly silent.Edited by CharlesK - 3/26/12 at 12:11am
