    While trying to take apart this particular monitor to repair a broken (loose) power button, I accidentally broke the plastic tangs keeping the outer plastic case shut.

    Refer to this other thread for further info: https://www.electronicspoint.com/open-samsung-syncmaster-957p-t64416.html

    The thing is, unlike what that other thread suggests, it is not easy at all to open the monitor by pressing the plastic "barrier" inside the slits.

    I don't know if it is due to it being a syncmaster 957P and not MB but the thing is, there isn't much room for the plastic holder of the front panel to go in and release the pressure on the one from the back end of the monitor.

    If someone else tries to take apart this monitor I URGE you to follow the instructions of the thread above literally.

    Find a flat screwdriver and after unscrewing the 2 bottow screws, use it to press through the two plastic slits on the sides of the monitor, but aplly strong pressure in a way that makes sure the flat side of the screwdriver is perfectly parallel, or aligned with the direction of the slit itself. DO NOT twist the screwdriver! As a rule, if you're damaging the surrounding plastic, you're doing it wrong.

    If you apply sufficient pressure, the back plastic case should pop from the front panel but i stress that it is REALLY hard to get it to do so.

    I include pictures so they can guide someone else.

    http://goo.gl/iAbY8 - The part of the plastic tang that is visible from the outside of the slit (with the monitor already open). This is what you must press. But do it like I said above!!!

    http://goo.gl/YiBpH - The plastic tang, from the inside. You have to press '1' hard as I said before, so '2' can be pushed inside and '3' can be released. Easier said than done though.

    I hope this was some help to someone as have been much free information I found on the internet, for me.
