Question about Samsung SyncMaster 205BW LCD Monitor
I have a Samsung SyncMaster 205BW 20.1" widescreen monitor that I purchased about 3 months back. When I set it up I was very happy with it, and the picture still looks great. Here's the problem: Slowly, but surely, the monitor is tilting more and more towards the ground. As if the base and support are not strong enough to keep it at a clean 180 degrees from the desk. No amount of pushing, pulling or other brute force methods have worked so far... Any suggestions?
Unsnap the c shaped cover from the joint area, No screws need to be removed, but you need to tilt the screen so that it will clear when removed.
What you need to do is slip a penny under the two springs which provide tension to the tilt. You can do this by prying them up and pushing a penny under them. Next, you need to increase the friction in the pivot (this alone may be enough to solve the problem.) Several things might work. I used a Permatex thread lock compound and just dripped into the pivot area and let it dry overnight.
Works perfectly now, and I can always add more thread lock easily.

I am not a monitor expert, but from product photos, it looks like the flat panel is mounted on a weak pivot, probably a design fault. I would guess that you probably don't want to spend a lot of time on this problem, and don't wish to make it worse. If it were me, I would probably use some sticky-backed velcro on the panel and base so that the velcro would hold the panel up, and still be adjustable... if the monitor's back is against the wall, it won't be seen.
