I am trying to take the stand off of my monitor because I am using double monitors and want to mount them on a different mount designed to hold two monitors. I can not get the stands off and I am afraid I am going to break them. Any hints.

Samsung ships this monitor in two flavors according to my converstation with L2 tech support, the stand that rotates and the one that does not. According to L2, I have the one that supposedly does not, as the one that does says so on the outer carton. But the stand has a round mount that attaches to a 200 x100 mounting hole bracket that attaches to the back of the monitor. But out of the box even with about 20 pounds of force it only rotates about 3 degrees clockwise or counter clockwise and then hits a hard stop (like a pin) and there is no release button. You cannot rotate it....yet. So here is the trick. You need to remove the 4 screws that hold the mount to the back of the monitor and remove it from the mount. Now when you look at the rotate mechanism you we see a phillips head lock screw....remove it. Remount the monitor and now it will rotate as it was designed to do. My guess is that when Samsung sells this monitor with the "optional rotate" feature, they get a few more bucks for it! Hope this helps...BBRAND.
should be four screws holding it on. Take them off and keep them safe. The monitor is made to take this off and mount to a VESA square block plate for wall-mount etc.. look and you will see them there.
The original Samsung stands will be very hard to find, only available from somebody that has wall mounted their monitor and no longer needs the stand. You can get a third party stand such as the one in the link below that will mount your monitor. All modern monitors have mounting holes in the back for VESA mounting, this is a standard configuration.
Most electronic stores sell wall mounting brackets. There are several types. one mounts the LCD screen flat to the wall with a limited range of tilt. Another type mount the LCD screen on an arm that allows tilt and swing movements.
Generally speaking, LCD monitors have a plastic cover that snaps onto the back side which covers the hinge and screws holding the base plate 'post' to the monitor. Remove the cover, and remove the screws. The post that engages the base plate will come off with the hinge intact. tom
If the power cable matches the power cable of your computer, it's a standard 3 prong power cable and you don't need a specific kind. If it's a small circular type you will need an external AC adapter, the type will depend on the manufacturer and make of your monitor. These can be found on eBay usually. Most monitors use different types of stands, but if your monitor has the standard VESA 75 or 100mm mounting holes on the back, you can find many monitor stands that are compatible with it. The standard VESA mounting holes are usually used for wall mounts but lots of stands connect to the monitor this way. You can tell by a set of 4 holes for screws or bolts on the back that are either 75mm or 100mm apart (vertically and horizontally). Don't forget to get the right kind of bolts for the stand, if it doesn't include them.
I have the same problem and I hate to admit it but I'm on the verge of putting a blade in my hand held router and cutting the plastic away. I don't want to do that since maybe I may need the mount someday, but...
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.
