Fit in box

If it is into the original box and you still have all the packing then first step would usually be removal of the monitor base.

With CRT monitors the base usually pushes to the back and it is best done with the monitor upside down so that you can check for any locking tabs that may need to be pushed open.

Once the base is off you will find it easier to see on the packaging how it should fit..

Drop the base packing into the box first and then the monitor followed by the top packing.

there is usually a space for the base on the top packing.

Can't fit LG monitor back in box

Usually there is either a panel that covers the screw attachments on the back or the panel covers the bottom of the base or foot and the attachment screws are there, but most monitors have panels that cover the screw attachments.

Screen turns on for a second then turns off

Your power supply is blown. If you have some repair knowledge then pull it apart and look for caps that have raised or bubbled tops. They need replacing I do this repair all the time. If you don't want the monitor please let me know I will pay for shipping. I repair them for the school.
God luck.

MOnitor Base

Unfortunately I have heard that the bases on this model of Acer aren't meant to come off once they are put on properly. There are clips that hold the base in place that if manipulated properly should let you wiggle the base off gradually. Using a screwdriver or other thin, flat object to wedge the clips out of the way is usually a good bet.

Acer p221w monitor removing base

Since you have surely looked, it isn't held on with exposed screws.
Check to make sure that the rounded area that allows tilting is not part of the case but appears to be separable.
Most that are removable are held by a tongue and a fairly obvious release tab.

if you can't remove the base, just place the monitor in the carton on good padding and upside down.
Fill and cushion the sides well, mark the carton with 'This side up' and an arrow and hope there are no malicious handlers on the trip.

I've shipped numerous monitors of different sizes and types and have lost none of them to shipping damage.

Disassembly for shipping

As per page 4 of the User's Manual from Acer:

Detaching the Monitor
If you need to repackage the monitor, please separate the monitor and base, and restore them to
the carton. To detach the monitor:
1. Unplug the AC power cord to make sure the power is off.
2. Pull the 4 hooks on bottom side of the base and hold.
3. Separate the monitor and base and put them into carton.
