How to remove back cover of monitor

Hello all,

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 550s monitor which is pretty old and requires a cleaning.
I can feel that its inside is heavily loaded with dust. So I've got to open the back cover. But I don't know how to open it. I tried, but failed.

Can you tell me how to open the backcover?

thanks in advance.

Remove two screws on lowerback of the monitor. Loosen the case at the botton and on the top. Two holes will appear on the top. With thin screwdriver push down inserting the screwdriver into this notch.This will release the case. Tks

Hello sir, only horizental single line show in my display, what is this problem?

That is caused by absence of the vertical signal, more likely to be a problem with a semiconductor (specially a transistor) broken inside the display. Also, it may be caused by a "cold joint" or a problem with the solder. Heat caused by the "excessive" use of this monitor causes the joint to fail.

How do I open cover of Acer AL2021 Monitor ?

This is a bit tricky, but not impossible.
1. Remove the two visible screws near the bottom. 2. Pull the plastic covers off the stand: Pull from the inside (nearest where the stand is attached to the monitor. 3. Undo the screws and remove the bracket. 4. Under the bracket is the final screw. 5. Try pulling the front off the back starting at the bottom. It'll require a little force. 6. Now you should be able to get a knife in to pull the rest of the case off. Leaver by pushing the front outwards and back inwards and the clips should come off ok.

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.
