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)
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!
did you need to take the glass out, or just showing me how it should be done
Least i know now
I had a stuck dark blue pixel underneath and wanted to fix it. So far no pressure methods are working
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.
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.
wow thanks for the vid bro!
ok so is the actual screen under the glass glossy? i couldn't tell from the vid.
can u post a pic of how your running it now?
is the logo on the glass like painted or engraved? i might want to paint it black and throw an apple logo on there:D
also can u post pic of the back with out the glass bezel if possible?
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
