I am trying to open a hpvs17 lcd monitor. How do you remove the base from the body of the monitor? I am stymied by 1 screw which holds the tilting mechanism to the monitor and is not accesible. It is obvious that hp made this intentionally difficult. It appears that the base must be disassembled to remove it. I removed the metal baselate. This exposed plastic tabs which, when squeezed, allowed removal of the round plastic base. The remaining part of the base upright appears to lock into the screen tilting mechanism by 5 plastic tabs in 3 compartments that must be depressed simultaneously to disengage the two parts. Is this correct? Did those pinheads who earn their pay by designing their products to be difficult to access really do something so monumentally stupid (which they probably consider clever)? How do I circumvent this despicable design?

Have you been to YOUTUBE for "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" video clips??? Absolutly do not use sharp cutting instruments to part the rear cover from front BEZEL of unit. One careless slip and it's a trip to local hospital "ER" to stop the gushing wound you have inflected on your body. Good luck with repair to your unit. 12fixlouie
inc_power, Please go to YOUTUBE and watch some video clips of how the professionals do it. Try this. "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" for starters. Be careful and do not use sharp cutting instruments to pry with or you may be making a trip to the local hospital ER to have doctor sew up the gushing wound you have inflicted upon your body. Parting the rear cover from the front "bezel" is the "key" to getting inside unit. 12fixlouie
jcdiekfuss, First verify that you have audio signal coming out of the light-green audio-out "jack on the PC!! Use an external pair of "wall-wart" powered speakers to verify. Notify me of result. You can also try to "feed" low-level audio from a radio or CD player "ear-bud" jack to the LCD monitor's audio input jack for testing purposes. Good luck. 12fixlouie
well being as how i just did this five minutes ago I can help:) The back of the monitor has a thin panel like a sideways 8 or a bean shape...this pops off then you have to take out the screws holding on the base once you get that off you can lay the monitor flat <carefully> and pop the outer black frame off <every so often along the seam you will see little gaps stick a thin flathead in if it's to tight for you carefully not to scratch or break it is plastic!> then you will see the metal case and find the screws on the sides and your there! Good luck!
At the base you want to remove - in order to pack the monitor - if you se at the rear left and right there are a tiny opening about 3 cm long,put inside a screw driver and it will open very easly the plastic cover.Then inside there are four screws,two on each side,remove them and the arm of the screen will be dis-attached.
it seems that you open any monitor first time i suggest you to if any screw is not present then not to try to open and if screw is present then remove the screw and remove the base also. then see any lock present on the cover. pull the housing upwards and plz unlock the cover very safety and this you may remove the cover
1st remove the base cover by by squeezing to release the clips and remove the 6 base mounting screws. 2nd remove the 5 screws in the back cover. 3rd push and pry at the parting line to release the clips. 4th remove the base mount by removing the two attaching screws and sliding it down about a quarter inch. 5th remove the steel cover by removing the 4 wires, two screws from power outlet, two bolts from vga plug, and the other screw in the cover. and there you have it.
I have been having the same problem with my hpvs17 monitor when i start to use my web browser on linux distros. Now, for the next few days i am going to try my system on a regular crt monitor. if the monitor does not crash, than i will have to say that the hpvs17 monitor has a defect.It seems that when i go online, while i am in the middle of searching something, the monitor just shuts off and i get "input signal out of range".
