Hi: you previously tried to explain how to remove base from monitor (to allow packing), by "bending back clips" There are 4 clips, if you mean the little plastic things with the ledge which sort of clamp the base in position. How can one do all 4 at once ? Is there a danger of them snapping off (i.e. how flexible is the plastic ?) And is the metal clip in the base centre (when upside down) involved ?: I cannot figure out its function
We are trying to remove the base on an Acer monitor as well...we were able to remove the "foot" of the base, but can not figure out how to remove the "stem" from the monitor. When looking into the stem we see the bottom of 3 screws, but in order to get to the head of these 3 screws, we would be required to seperate the entire screen. Not even then am I sure we can get to them...any help is appreciated.
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

there will be screws on the back which will allow you to remove the stand, then on the back of the monitor their should be 4 screw holes, use these to attach a a flat plate wall bracket to it. but if you can't remove the stand, then put a clap speaker bracket on the wall & just clap the base of the monitor, as this type of bracket can be adjusted both in & out & up & down.
All screws have been remove right? Ok, theres clips locking down the
back cover at the side of the LCD. What you can do is by using a flat
head screw driver push into the side of the LCD and bend to remove the
cover and the clips.
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
1st remove the base cover by by squeezing to release the clips and remove the 6 base mounting screws. 2nd remove the 5 screws in the back cover. 3rd push and pry at the parting line to release the clips. 4th remove the base mount by removing the two attaching screws and sliding it down about a quarter inch. 5th remove the steel cover by removing the 4 wires, two screws from power outlet, two bolts from vga plug, and the other screw in the cover. and there you have it.
Unfortunately I have heard that the bases on this model of Acer aren't meant to come off once they are put on properly. There are clips that hold the base in place that if manipulated properly should let you wiggle the base off gradually. Using a screwdriver or other thin, flat object to wedge the clips out of the way is usually a good bet.
Since you have surely looked, it isn't held on with exposed screws.
Check to make sure that the rounded area that allows tilting is not part of the case but appears to be separable.
Most that are removable are held by a tongue and a fairly obvious release tab.
if you can't remove the base, just place the monitor in the carton on good padding and upside down.
Fill and cushion the sides well, mark the carton with 'This side up' and an arrow and hope there are no malicious handlers on the trip.
I've shipped numerous monitors of different sizes and types and have lost none of them to shipping damage.
"noisy vertical bars in the video" is indicative of 60 Hz AC component riding in with the video signal. Pls check that all connectors are snug and fit to where they are connected. It would do no harm to try to remove and reinstall/reconnect all cables. Additionally, try plugging in the monitor into a different socket/AC mains. Further, you may want to try and check your cable for any stray shielding or anything out of the ordinary.
Other than the above, could not suggest more easy user action. The alternatives are to try a different monitor to determine if it is the computer video card or the Acer 1717 that is in question; or try the Acer 1717 in another PC. It should be mentioned that some household appliances can also cause AC interference such as florescent lamps, wireless phones or even an electric clock.
Of course you can also try increasing your PC's Screen refresh Rate to anything other than 60Hz.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
For monitor or TV bases that have four clips, I found if two people each take two opposite clips, and use thumbs to push in the clips, we can pop the base off fairly easily. It is impossible with one person, since thumb and forefinger can't exert sufficient pressure on the clips.
