    I cannot remove the part that connects the monitor to the base, it is just staying there. I know there is a symbol of a lock on the back with a hole that looks like a screwdriver can go in there, but thats showing no results.

Depending on the model the base would be removed by the clips on the underside, push them in and lift the base off,

if the whole stand comes off there will be a catch on the back of the monitor under neath/behind where the hinge connects to the screen, you may have to pull hard but don't apply too much force or it may snap

Hope that helps you

How to remove base from gateway hx2000 monitor


You need to find the original instructions for putting the monitor together, or you could accidentally break the base from the monitor if you attempt to remove it the wrong way. Try Google.

Need to pack up flat screen monitor into original packaging. Do not know how to take off the stand or how to fold. Suggestions?


On the ack of the Monitor there should be some screws holding the stand in place. With a screw driver simply undo the screws and pull th monitor away from the stand. This should allow you to place all the pieces back in the box properly.

Fit in box


If it is into the original box and you still have all the packing then first step would usually be removal of the monitor base.

With CRT monitors the base usually pushes to the back and it is best done with the monitor upside down so that you can check for any locking tabs that may need to be pushed open.

Once the base is off you will find it easier to see on the packaging how it should fit..

Drop the base packing into the box first and then the monitor followed by the top packing.

there is usually a space for the base on the top packing.

Can't fit LG monitor back in box


Usually there is either a panel that covers the screw attachments on the back or the panel covers the bottom of the base or foot and the attachment screws are there, but most monitors have panels that cover the screw attachments.

Padlock appears on screen


I have this monitor,got it used at the goodwill, padlock problem and the control buttons (eccept for power) did not work. I tried every solution posted with no success. Then I got brave, I dove into the problem. 1) remove base, four phillips head screws. 2) remove the back, five phillips head screws. one in each corner and one behind the base mount, thus the need to remove the base. 3) carefully pry off the back, it snaps on, so take your time. I found a butter knife to be very helpfull. 4) The buttons are sodered to an electrical board whitch is snapped into place so carefully pry up from one side,again I used a butter knife. The wires are sodered to the board, they do not unplug. 5) Using a can of air, blow into each button and trying to clean out the inside them. I'm sure they should probably be replaced but we do what we can. 6) Put it all back together. 7) plug it in and connect it to computer. start working the buttons, at first I thought it was a lost cause but after about a minute I was able to get into the menue, scroll down using the arrow buttons and turn the lock off. A $300 monitor for 40 bucks. I hope this message gets to you before you give up. GOOD LUCK, GMAN8773

How to detach the screen from the base.


Here is what I did on my last 2 moves with a 22" LCD.
Just wrap it in soft blanket like velour or a comforter and put it in a box so it doesn't move around. You could take off hte base but usually at risk. Most of those bases clip on and aren't really easy to slide out or meant to take back apart. You risk more damage taking it out apart then just wrapping it securely and putting it in a box.

Acer 1717 monitor- removal of base


At the base you want to remove - in order to pack the monitor - if you se at the rear left and right there are a tiny opening about 3 cm long,put inside a screw driver and it will open very easly the plastic cover.Then inside there are four screws,two on each side,remove them and the arm of the screen will be dis-attached.
