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.

Why is the sound not working on my acer screen


How do you have the screen plugged in?
If via HDMI, audio should go to your screen, but you may need to output to speakers (that is, if your monitor does not have built-in speakers).
If indeed outputting via HDMI, make sure your computer KNOWS it's supposed to output audio through the HDMI port as well as the video.
Finally, you might just need to plug speakers/headphones into the monitor - most have an audio jack on the underside, by the stand.

I need to remove the base of my Acer AL2216W monitor to send it out for repair, but I don't see how to remove it. Does the stand unsnap from the bottom ledge of the monitor, or does the "tongue"...


You need to remove the hinge plastic cover to get to the mountung screws.
Download the service manual here:

ACER P221W No display and power light blinking


Hello,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. If the monitor does not have any bad caps then I would be that when the video card died it sent a spike to the monitor and killed the driver board. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

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.
