Cannot find VESA holes...Samsung Syncmaster 970p

I just purchased a 3 monitor mount and have 2 Samsung Syncmaster 970p(s) to mount on 2 of the arms. Supposedly, the Samsung Syncmaster 970p is VESA compatible with a 75MM hole pattern. However, I can't find where to a) remove the base to reveal the holes on the back of the monitor -or- b) mount the monitor with the base intact.

Re: Cannot find VESA holes...Samsung Syncmaster 970p

I have looked at the specification for this, and although it does show as being VESA compatible (This is a display standard) There is no mention of any "wall mounting" capabilities at all, which would lead me to believe that this is not designed to be put on a mount. also the "Magic Rotation" Technology which is part of this device may rely on it using the proprietory stand, it may well be possible to remove the stand however, but it would require some significant dissasembly as the power connector is on the signal box, and this would need to be seperated from the stand itself. The mounting bolts look to be hidden behind the round pivot cover on the back, and it may be possible to see if mounting is possible simply by removing this, however I would seek information from the manufacturer about this as removing any of the covers would most likely invalidate your warranty, it is possible that this was missold to you and you should be able to take it back as not being fit for purpose.

The left and right insert part of the stand on my Samsung Syncmaster 403T broke. Where can I get a replacement part. The part no. is BN61-00424 for left and right insert of the stands.

Those aren't easy to find (if at all). Your best bet would be to ditch the original stand and get a VESA compatible mount or stand kit. You can usually get them for cheap on

Monitor keeps going off and on. All cords seem

ALL LCD monitors have a thermal protection circuit that turns the monitor off when it is overheated. LCD monitors do not have air circulating fans, so dust buildup is a problem. If your monitor is still under warranty, Please contact your retailer or Samsung at If it is out of warranty, you can try to repair it youtself. The steps to follow are:
1. Fold a large bath towel in half and put it on a table.
2. Disconnect the monitor from everything.
3. Remove all cables from the monitor
4. Place the monitor face down on the towel.
5. Remove the four VESA mounting screws that hold the desk mount to the rear of the monitor.
6. Remove ALL of the Phillips head screws from the rear of the monitor.
7. Use a thin bladed tool to release all of the plastic catches that secure the rear cover to the front cover of the monitor.
8. Use a small brush and a hose type vacuum cleaner to remove all of the accumulated dust from the chassis.
9. Put everything back together by reversing steps 7-2.
power it up and see if this corrects the problem.
10. Do not block any ventilation holes in the case.

Samsung monitor 970p triple hinge.. hinge collapsed how to restore

From doing a good amount of internet research I have found that this problem is "fixable". Inside the top portion of the arm there is a spring. That spring was made to support the weight of the screen, but after readjusting the screen so many times, the spring loses its ability to hold the weight. If you take apart the top part of the arm (the top part, not the sides, pop it off with a flathead, be careful) you can fix it a number of ways. I used a zip tie. Go right through the middle. and tighten it until you get the screen where you like it (forever). thats just want i did. Do some googleing people!

Flexible hinge

I had the same problem. Samsung will replace the monitor if it is still within the factory warranty -- which I believe is 2 years.
