My monitor (LG Flatron L196WTQ) has broken recently and I know the problem is with the inverter. From what I have read online, replacing the capacitors on the inverter board might fix it. The problem is that I can't open the monitor. I took off all the screws but still cannot get at the insides. Does anyone have any ideas how I might go about doing it?

I actually found the post below which was quite helpful. I just had to give it some more force with a flathead screwdriver. I will be repairing the caps tomorrow.

I found a service manual, which describes how to disassemble the monitor: http://www.fixdevice.com/smanuals/file/39118.html

And yes you are probably right about the caps, they are most likely dead if they are electrolytic capacitors.
