Step By Step: Removing The TFT Panel, Continued

The LCD panel is still on in this picture, but all cable connections from the controller and inverter have already been removed. The most sensitive work is in removing the panel from the plastic frame without breaking the display.

Done - the LCD panel removed from the frame.

The diffusing screen is fixed under the panel - it's no longer required.

Important: the inverter board contains the control logic and the high-voltage unit for backlighting.

Most TFT monitors contain a second board holding the VGA input and the power socket.
