Re: monitor is tilted forward and wont tip back

It will tilt back, just make sure the stand is in the forward most position and not turned and hold the screen at top and push while at the same time pull at the bottom, it will be quite stiff.

How do I tilt my Samsung 190s monitor?

If you mean tilt back/forward, grab the screen with your hands from both sides and tilt the top towards you are away from you.

If you mean rotate to get vertical instead of horizontal orientation, you should look at the back of your monitor to see if it even allows that movement.

Try downloading the User Manual if you don't have one:

I have an Acer monitor Mod. X221W and I cannot manage to tilt it in any manner. Can you help please? Alfred Portelli Malta

Place your left hand on the bottom of the monitor and your right hand on the top of the monitor.

Holding onto the top and the bottom of the monitor.

While holding the base level, GENTLY push your left hand away and bring your right hand forward.

To tilt monitor backward bring left hand towards you and push right hand away.

Our viewsonic monitor tilts forward. how do we tilt it back?

Hello again.
The ViewSonic VG1930wm has a height adjustment range of 3.2", TILT capabilities, and a swivel range of 360 degrees.
So yes your monitor should be able to tilt back and forth.  Most likely if you hold the base of the monitor, and press somewhere on the front at the top or bottom (do not press on the screen itself) then it should easily tilt back and forth.  Occassionally there is a switch you may have to hold while you push on the front-top/bottom of the monitor which acts as a lock for the tilt angle.
Hope that helps, and don't forget to vote/rate! 
Height adjustment range 3.2", tilt, swivel range 360º

Tilt new monitor???

mcdevito75 here, I also have an Acer and it Doesn't tilt, that doesn't mean yours won"t, try to hold the monitor by the top and simply try to tilit it while makeing sure the base stays flat on the desk, (table) don"t force anything. Also look for any kind of screw, or handle connected to the base (bottom) or near bottom of back of monitor. Hope this helps. Oh! also check the manual that came with the monitor, mine has no mention of tilt. Sorry.

Screen tiled and i can't move it back

Try reseting the settings to factory defauts in the monitors user menu. You can get more details from the manual on this.

If reseting the settings doesnt work. Could you take a photo so we would have a better understanding of the problem :-)

Or do you mean the screen is fysically tilted? If parts are broken and you are unable to move the screen, then I cant offer much help, you could contact acer for support or to take it to a local pc shop for analysis.
