squeaky monitor casing

#1X_ULTIMA_XPosted 11/22/2013 6:48:50 AM
The casing on my my samsung s27b970 is getting pretty squeaky, its a new monitor and when I touch the behind of the monitor, the plastic is pretty squeaky. Does the squeaking on monitors usually go away after some time? The area thats squeaking seems kind of cheap for a 1000 dollar monitor

The trick is to use some wd-40 on the parts where it is squeaking to get rid of it. It will not go away unless you RMA the monitor.

I wont have to open it up will I? Is it safe to use that around the squeaking area? Is the squeaking something I should even be concerned about? Thanks

FYI, you're doing it wrong.
You aren't supposed to caress the monitor while looking at dem pronz.

i know its not a big deal, but i do notice it when adjusting the monitor and it costed a small fortune, should i just try and put some WD-40 or silicone gel around the squeaking area? trying to get in between the area thats squeaking without dismantling the monitor?

The best advice I can think of is to just ignore it. =\ Possibly something like WD-40, like the other poster said, if the squeaky part isn't close to an area that has an opening to the wiring or anything...

Try tightening or loosening some screws near where it is squeaking from.
Either by tightening some screws you won't let the plastic pieces rub against each other or by loosening some screws you'll let the plastic flex a little easier.
