SOURCE: how to remove the base from the monitor

Normally once the base is on its on forever. But you should see little clips that the base uses to latch onto the monitor. You can use a flathead screwdriver and bend the clips inward till the base pops off. Still will be hard though to remove the base. Seems they made that base to stay on.

Where the footpiece joins up with the screen, you'll find a round cover from left to right which just clips in. carefully squeeze the ends and pull away untill released. under the cover you'll find four screws that holds the footpiece and screen together. Good Luck, jus004

Power shortage monitor black wont turn on? how do i get back off theres two screws but still not separating

You need to remove the two plastic hinges cover to get the stand off then you will see one more screw once the base is removed, more likely to have bad caps, see example here:

Use very thin flat blade screw driver to separate the back cover from the front, starting at the bottom side first,

Hi there!

Please refer to Page 7 of your VA1703w user manual for help on mounting this monitor, if you do not have the manual available, you can get it online here:

From what I can tell, you may be re-using the screws that you remove during the listed procedure.

Viewsonic vg2021m base mount

Gently lay the nonitor, face down, on a table such that it will not be damaged while you remove the base. You will find a curved strip of plastic about 1 1/4 inch wide and 4 inches long. Near the center of this strip, you will find two parallel plastic ridges. These are clips that hold the base to the monitor support post. Squeeze these clips together to remove the base from the support post. I was able to squeeze the rear strip toward the rear of the base and ease the rear of the base off that clip and it came apart ok. It is a bit tricky, but doable. Good luck.

VG930M-3 Taking base of this monitor...

After a chat with a Viewsonic tech and pulling out a lot of screws, this is what I discovered you have to do;

Find a secure place to turn your VG930M upside down, like on an armchair.

Undo the central screw on the base and remove the rotating black plastic plate.  Make sure you know which way it goes back on again.

Remove all the screws on the metal plate, something like eight around the circumference and another two which attach to the LCD support column. (You were never just going to pull that base off!).

Now for the tricky bit! The support column has two extensions that extend down into the base and click into position.  You have to get a flat blade screwdriver and push one of them towards the centre while trying to lift the base just a little away from the support column, so that it is unclipped.

Then you have to do the same with the other extension, while lifting the base a little. The base should now pop off.

Not as straight forward as some screens but achievable!
Good Luck!

ViewSonic VA720

The VA720 I have has 4 screws from the back: 1 at each bottom corner and 2 in the middle lower at the base. Remove screws and carefully pry the front and back halves apart. They snap together. Usually working the bottom apart first is easiest.
