Secure LCD to Bezel
I am in the process of making bezel for my liliput 619 for my rsx-s.
I have molded the lilliput frame into my dash bezel i got from scoshe. What i have noticed is when i mount my lcd into the dash bezel i created it doesn't sit 100% flush since there is only 4 screws holding the actual lcd into the bezel.
My question is can i use some sort of hot glue around the lcd and bezel to secure the lcd more securly into the bezel?
I am just conserned about the lcd slipping. I was going to use epoxy, but just in case i needed to modify anything i though hot glue would do the trick.
I just dont want to damage my lcd, but though nothing would be wrong with a little extra support around lcd and monitor.
Please change your location to either Ontario, Canada or Ottawa, Ontario.
But I'm not sure what it is you're asking exactly. It's sagging a little off the bezel because there's not enough support with the lack of screws? As long as you're securing plastic to plastic you should be able to use whatever you want.
The LCD is not sagging off the bezel, its just that i notice that one corder of the lcd doesn't sit flush when i mount it into the bezel. If i put pressure of that corder it will sit flush, but just wanted something to hold it in place so that corner sits flush against the bezel once i bolt it in with screws.

My main concern is extra hold in case of vibration. Since there is only 4 screws holding the monitor in place i was looking for something extra to secure in place.
Are you using the case the LCD came in or have you made a completly new bezel and housing?
A picture of your bezel and retaining screws would help quite a bit...........
At any rate, if you have to push on the LCD to get it to sit flush, then your case or bezel is most likely warped. DEpending on how you constructed the bezel, this may have happened during fabrication.
I would NOT recommend forcing the LCD into the bezel. The are not really meant to flex ((lass doesn't bend too well) and if preloaded that way, they will often break with vibration.
As to four screws holding it in, that's all that hold an LCD in the factory case. Of course, the case is designed with "stops" that the LCD rests up against. The screws (or clips) just kep the LCD from falling out.
Whatever you do, you want whatever is holding your LCD in to not put pressure on the screen. If you do, it will eventually break due to cold, vibration, impact (bumps), etc. The LCD holder pretty much must hold the LCD securly but gently.
