Question about Samsung SyncMaster 970P 19" LCD Monitor
Samsung monitor 970p triple hinge
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!
