    How can I open a LCD monitor (model Belinea 101920) ?
    After unscrewing all the visible screws, I could remove the "foot" but the case still doesn't open.
    On the net, sometimes a case opening key is mentioned. Indeed, there is a hole in the back of the case with a "K" inscription (maybe stands for "key").
    Where do I buy such a key ? I tried Google, but without success ?

    I hope you already fixed your monitor by now.

    Anyway, the little K and lock symbol has nothing to do with opening up the back panel. the lock symbol indicates the hole may be used for security. for instance, at a school or library, the hole will be used to pull a wire through it and secure it to a table or lock.

    As for opening the monitor, I have not done that before, BUT, I frequently read that after the screws are removed, you just have to carefully pry it open using a flathead screwdriver. Wedge the flathead into the seams.

    Look for clips along the seams.
