Failed U2412M AG Removal.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

Just wanted to put this out there for people thinking of doing an AG removal on their monitor. I followed instructions on multiple forums to a T...AG came off smooth as silk....reassembled without much difficulty....but when I plugged the monitor back in and the screen started up the polarizer was cracked beyond repair. We all know how fragile they are but let me stress THEY ARE MUCH MUCH MORE FRAGILE THAN YOU MAY THINK. I'm thinking it cracked just from the pressure of having it up on its side...or possible just from the gentle force used to snap the bezel down...idk because aside from that i didnt even touch it.

This mod is def possible as we have seen, but there is a great possibility of failure even for someone who considers themselves very capable.

Just be careful, and be prepared to throw 250 down the drain (or more depending on your model).

Im very bummed because it was new but also knew the risk and know it was my own damn fault.


sucks to be me doh.gif

Good to know, can you post a couple pics?

Personally I love the antiglare on my U2211H, its much more effective than my laptops. I thought the mod was interesting though.

im going to throw this out there....dont judge because im a pretty morally forward person...just want opinions...


if I was to contact dell, and tell them straight up the polarizer is cracked and they were to accept the return...would that constitute any kind of fraud?

Yeah, technically yes. You violated the warranty by modifying it, and the damage was caused by/during said modifications. It's not like a GPU that dies that you put an aftermarket cooler on. That modification has nothing to do w/ the failure(for sake of argument).

I'd say just try it, but screens don't just break outta nowhere 99.9% of the time, they'll know it was user abuse.

And once you send it in and they see that there is no AG coating anymore...your warranty would be voided anyway.

i know and chances are they will just tell me no...but hypothetically if I was to call and they were to reissue a replacement (they usually send replacement before receiving) what is the worst that could happen?

you'll have to send your "defective" unit back regardless if they send a replacement first or not. if you don't send the defective unit back, they will bill your address the cost of the monitor if they do send first. every online retailer i've run into will always do this if they send the replacement item first. dell won't be any different.
