    I want to spray paint my monitor, but Im wondering if the paint going into the vents will hurt anything, I didnt think it would, since it would be on the outside of the color tube, but im not sure.

    BTW i do know to cover up the glass:laugh:

    Ya must remove the casing from the monitor to paint it but do not touch any internal components even after a week or so of bein' powered down as a high voltage charge can be stored in them for quite sometime.

    It's really not that hard to do but just requirin' care when removin' the covers plus most modern monitors have a great deal of metal shieldin' coverin' the dangerous parts.

    Hmm, I might have to do it then. Does the fron part also come off? I took an old (late 80's 14in)one apart, and the front panel didnt come off

    Base, front and rear will all come away and most monitors take very little effort but ya must be made aware of the dangers (just for saftey sake). If ya know the dangers then ya'll be more careful (hopefully). ;)

    Probably pointless using a anti static wrist strap then :) :laugh:

    good tip, if u havent painted it yet, from personal expiriance, if u hold ur case frame(anything metal) and have rubber sould shoes on, btw pc should be off and pluged in, then u can safely touch anything inside the monitor to ground the monitor so u dotn acedently touch it later, i did that, thoes caps inside the monitor store alot of juice!!!!:steam: :steam:
