Bugs in the bezel
Posted by: michael_s
Date: January 27, 2010 02:48PM
I've got the cinema Hd 23" apple display with the plastic bezel.
Over the years, a few small gnats and some dust have accumulated in the feet.
Don't know how they got in, but I would like to clean them out.
Does this thing come apart?
Should I take it apart if it does?

Thanks

Bunch of allen head bolts on the back side and remove the foot. Then the back panel should come off.

Sounds like the geek equivalent of "bats in the belfry".

They get in through the vents on the back of the monitor.



I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making
him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher
(1828-1910)

My 20" early cinema has 3/32" "allen" hex screws. I have a few crumbs in the bottom of the legs. Probably cheaper to buy a set of tips and screwdriver holder than a single driver. These monitors are hard to part with, ADC not with standing.

for some reason I initially read that as a "Bunch of ALIEN head bolts..."

Me too. But between my eyesight, and the resolution on my ancient TiBook, that's not surprising.


Good luck.

Bugs are gone.
Problem solved.
Currently searching for something else to keep me distracted/not working.

Thanks. I think.
