Repairing Dell U2711 Display Flickering Panel due to corroded Contacts

Moderate

Mijn probleem

The problem had gotten worse and worse to the point that it was almost unuseable and somehow before I bought my new monitor I never found this thread. Bought a new monitor and brought this one into the shop thinking I'd take it apart and give it a shot no matter what

Mijn oplossing

Getting the bezel apart is by far the hardest part. You've got to make sure to pry it open starting where there isn't a clip then move slowly around the monitor. This took the most time as I wanted to be sure not to break any cables. After that the rest of the repair was relatively easy. I cleaned the connector (M and F ends) with contact cleaner and q-tips. Then I used the iFixit screwdriver with the smallest flat head to srub (LIGHTLY) the tops and all sides of the pins. I think that is what really cleaned them off because the shiny metal started to show.

Mijn advies

I would scrub the pins with something. I'm sure there is a better way than a flat head screw driver. Be careful taking off the bezel but, don't be afraid to use a bit of force. Only when you have it almost all the way off do you want to be extra careful not to break a cable
