First off, I know CRTs are dangerous and I have opened and discharged multiple CRT displays before.
I've got an G50 monitor that shows a picture for a second or two and then goes blank. If you power cycle it you again get a picture for around 2 seconds before it disappears. To me this suggests that it's probably a bad old capacitor (though I'm no expert) so I'd like to get inside the thing to look for anything obvious.
There's two screws in the bottom of the case that were easy to remove, but there seem to be some clips at the top, and there are two slots perhaps 10mm long in the top of the rear housing. I did read somewhere that there was some specialised tool to open this up, but I can't find much information about that. Does anybody have an idea of how to remove the rear housing?
