Disassembly for shipping

Hello, we are selling our computer and have all the original packaging. The only problem is, i cant get the stand off the bottom of the monitor to fit it back into the shipping box!

Did acer design this as a one way clip? Is there any way of getting the base off?

Please help it's driving me insane!!!

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.

Well you have confirmed the monitor is the problem, the main board in the back of the screen is probably cracked and not salvageable and is a right off, the people who shipped it must have insured the package which you can put a claim on, and I would encourage you to do that.

I have a Dell E172fPB LCD Monitor that comes on and I can see my desktop for a split second then the green light flashes about once a second or two, and the screen flashes very briefly with the green power...

phil_bischof, Not many sub's for it!! Because the package not standard "TO220AB" It is TO220FP package device. You can try for this part number: MBRF20200CTGOS-ND and ask them if you really need to buy 10 of them for $27.88 or will they sell you only 1 for $2.80 + shipping? Have you determined cause of rectifier failure? Good luck, guy. 12fixlouie

Need to pack up flat screen monitor into original packaging. Do not know how to take off the stand or how to fold. Suggestions?

On the ack of the Monitor there should be some screws holding the stand in place. With a screw driver simply undo the screws and pull th monitor away from the stand. This should allow you to place all the pieces back in the box properly.

Monitor clip

the solution for you is to take your monitor and flip it upside down and re-align the slot on the monitor clip /stand so that it lines up with the front of the monitor. Return the monitor back to its normal position on the desk and it should now behave properly.

Good Luck!

Im too stupid to figure it out!

If it is the HP w1707 monitor, the power button is at the top right of the monitor (you may have to stand up and look at the top view of the monitor to see it just behind the front [screen] side of the monitor). I agree, it is easily missed. I hope this solves your problem.
