Why are there no repair guides for the LG monitors?

Why are there no repair guides for the LG monitors especially the 34um95. It has a switch joystick for controlling features of the monitor and fails after couple years use.

This means you will find other looking for a way to replace the switch and if they damage the screen (yes I did) they need help on part numbers for the LCD.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@goddur it is impossible for iFixit as a company to provide repair guides for every conceivable device. That is where you and us, the volunteers come in. Consider taking your monitor apart. While you do so, make a guide for the rest of the world that needs it. Use this guide to create and publish it on iFixit.

Now, if you are having trouble with taking it apart, you can always ask on the Answers Forum. I am certain that somebody out there will know the answer.

I have the same problem, LG and their stupid toggle buttons. There's no other way for me to turn down the display brightness down and it gives me a headache, so I literally wear my sunglasses at night, that and a handy program called F.lux helps somewhat :D

For me the toggle button lasted about two years just as my warranty ended the thing broke and I can't get no options and my volume is stuck pretty high but I only use for the PC anyway, which has volume control. Maybe there's some way to override the settings some how!

I wouldn't mind cracking this monitor open but I have nothing to replace the toggle button with, not sure if I can get a replacement or take out an old or similar model, not even sure how to take the thing apart. If anybody has the slightest idea as to go about it let me know?

Otherwise it's been a great monitor but I'm at the point now where its gonna get fixed one way or another even if It means breaking the thing. Muhahaha payback sound sweet....

Go for it — take it apart and post some photos of the process. I'm sure if you get stuck, someone would be happy to help.

The reason lies with the fact most guides are user written, relative to how many iFixit writes. I've done a guide on a monitor before when I had my AL2216W, but most people don't do that because they're priced to be disposable these days. Even people who fix the computer the display goes to treat displays as disposable. That's why you rarely see repair guides for monitors.

The other issue is that consumers buy low cost brands like HP, lower end Samsung and Acer, just to name a few. You do see Dells, LG's and computer company branded ones (usually rebranded by companies like Samsung) on occasion but it's not a regular site outside of businesses. However, some people do buy them - it just isn't as common. Consumers are often more price sensitive then businesses, which is why that's usually the case.
