How To PROPERLY Remove The Glass Off Of The ACHIEVA 27"LED 2560x1440 S-IPS Tempered Glass Monitor

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
So after using my imagination and hearing the word "hairdryer", I decided to use a hair dryer and a suction cup (Clean plunger in my case) to take the glass panel off the monitor.

You will need:
A heatgun (Lowest setting) or hairdryer
A suction cup (Clean plunger in my case)
Credit/ID card

First, place the monitor flat on the ground and start to gently heat up the black bezel underneath the glass. On a heatgun I prefer you do it a good 2 inches away with the heat level set to its lowest.
Next, push on the plunger near any corner of the tempered glass and begin to pull in the opposite direction. As you hear the adhesive make a sound of it coming off the white plastic and the glass, insert your ID/Credit card into the corner where there is a gap between the white plastic and the tempered glass. Wedge the ID card and pull the plunger at the same time until you wet it underneath the glass and can see part of it inside.
Next, as you run the ID/Credit card underneath the glass and plastic along the side, move the plunger according with the plastic card to loosen the adhesive until you have made it all the way around the bezel.
Finally, I think you can take it from here. Just unscrew the screws visible that were previously hidden by the black paint on the tempered glass and your ready to do whatever you want with the monitor!

The monitor with the glass removed:
450

The tempered glass safely off of the monitor:
450

I had a stuck dark blue pixel underneath and wanted to fix it. So far no pressure methods are working frown.gif
I also had a few dust specs underneath the glass so now I have a better chance to put it back together without as much dust under the glass.

Oh man, I'd just build a bezel and leave it without glass thumb.gif


One thing less to worry about.

Bump to those looking for the thread. Just want to update you guys and tell you that I'm running the monitor without the glass or white bezel. The metal frame of the screen is being held in by sightly shorter screws with the same threads.

Can you put the youtube video link back up? I might need it when my glass model gets here.

1. Yes the screen is glossy under the screen
2. Tomorrow, can't promise I'll upload it today.
3. The logo is painted with the letters in Shimian not painted in black and then there's just white paint over the letters. You'll have to scratch away all of the black and white paint, paint it black and then on top of the glass paint an Apple or whatever. Or before painting the glass black underneath you can paint a white apple and then paint black over it.
4. Sure, I'll post it with the pic of how I'm running the monitor now
