-thanks to HowSuffWorks for the image below.
Step 1: A word of warning...
As mentioned in forum (above link)
The unit would have to be disassembled to clean it out. That is a job for a professional.
Have you checked with a PC repair shop to see if they can do that (and guarantee their work in case they mess it up).
-I've already taken laptop screens apart, so I had a rough idea of what to do. ;-)
-If you want to attempt this, having taken apart electronics &c. is recommended. Please Note: you may be able to get a replacement if your monitor/laptop is under warranty.
Step 2: Tools for the eating...
- Flat head screwdriver (for prising apart the monitor casing)
- Phillips screwdriver, smaller size (for taking out all the screws)
- Precision screwdriver (for all the smaller screws)
- Window Cleaner* (you do remember this is to remove a thrip)
- Micro-fibre cloth (any cloth will work, but micro-fibre cloths are better)
Footnote: This is my excuse for the varying quality of the pictures, 'tis a several year old camera, which I am quite un-familiar with.
