    How are you attaching the circuit board?

    I have my monitor ready to install...except, I'm wondering how everyone is fixing the circuit board as well as the button board in place? (don't have it in it's housing any more).
    Epoxy??
    Goop?
    Duct tape?

    Thanks

    Why does everyone keep the buttons?
    Ditch them, they serve NO purpose really. MAYBE relocate the IR sensor, but beyond that... set it up once and it should be good to go... even my cheap knockoff works fine without setting it up 30 times. Need an off switch? Wire up a nice automotive switch...

    Anywho, I used some good old fashioned tape and hot glue to hold the controller board to the back of the screen. It's not falling off because I had to remove it once and I had to pull SO hard that it messed up the ribbon underneath everything... red (special) electrical tape + 2 plastics = good bond, actually impossible to remove; there's still red all over where I had to pull it off...

    I don't use the touchscreen buttons. I mounted the controller to the back of the LCD with 3M permanent double sided foam tape

    I'm not refering to the buttons specifically...I mean the main circuit board...
    But I am keeping the buttons because I'm keeping the remote...maybe
