The Dell 1907FP LCD monitor is a 19-inch thin-film-transistor (TFT) active matrix display that can use VGA, DVI or USB input types. If you need to disassemble the monitor, you will void your warranty from Dell. They do not repair or sell repair parts for monitors.

Things you need
- Screwdrivers (cross-head, various sizes)
- Putty knife
Turn off the monitor and unplug any cables from the back.
Remove the four screws that attach the stand or the mounting bracket to the back of the monitor.
Pry the front bezel off with the putty knife. Use gentle, even pressure around the edge of the bezel. Use special care near the control buttons, as they are connected to the back of the monitor with a cable.
Lay the monitor facedown on a work surface. If you have a rough work surface, lay down a soft towel first to prevent scratches to the LCD screen. Remove the mounting screws securing the circuit board, which are contained within a metal hump on the back of the monitor. Gently lift the circuit board up, and then wiggle the USB ports free on the side; use as little pressure as possible so you don't damage the connecting cables.
Unplug the connecting cable from the circuit board. Locate the four CFL backlights on the inside of the circuit board module. Unscrew them and disconnect them from the power source. Gently lift them out and set them aside.
