Has anyone removed the stand from the monitor?

I love my 30" Cinema Display, but it sits too high on my desk, and find myself tilting my head up to see towards the top of the screen. I hate the thought of modifying the work of art that it is, but if I removed the stand, it would sit perfectly at eye-level. Obviously, I would have to make a stand/support to allow it to be free-standing. Either that or modify the desk itself. Has anyone tried removing the stand from the monitor? Feedback?

As NullUnit mentioned, it is quite easy to remove the stand but you will need the VESA adapter kit to replace it. This will give you the standard 100mm VESA mounting holes that you would then connect to any mounting arm you wish.
Personally I bought this MX Desk Mount Arm as it was rated to hold the weight of the display (~30#) whereas others were not (~18#). I originally mounted the display in a vertical/portrait orientation but the arm didn't go high enough so I had to mount a 6" block of wood to my desk first. I enjoyed the monitor so much that I have since moved it to become my primary monitor. The arm allowed me to lower the display all the way to my desk so I could just look over it (to watch TV). Couldn't have if it was still on the stand.
Hope this helps.

  • Has anyone else lost Netflix from the Internet menu?

    I have done restarts, reboots, signed in and out and in of AirPlay, homeshare, etc... I have been on the Netflix site, no problems there.
    Has it just dropped from the menu for anybody else? I can't find any outage information on the web.

    We installed an update today and the only menu options we are left with are Internet (NO NETFLIX HERE), Computers and Settings. When you go to the Internet menu, it won't allow us to do anything except YouTube. I can't click on any of the drop downs.
    The unit is about 2 weeks old and has worked flawlessly until now. I am very disappointed in this. When you pay this much for a GEN 2 Apple product, you expect it to work, every time. I have other Apple products and don't have bugs.
    What is the answer to fix the menu??

  • HT203425 Has anyone have problems updating from the App Store today

    Is there a problem with the App Store today

    Yes and Apple acknowledges the issue. The App Store shows you have updates, but when going to update page it is blank. You need to go to the purchased page and scroll through all you apps and look for those that say "update" then update it. A hassle to be sure. The apple folks informed me that it is an iTunes issue and will be resolved soon. This issue has been going on for a week or so (July 25), so "soon" means......?

  • How i remove the stand from an Intel iMac 17"  ???

    Please help...is it possible to remove the stand from an intel based imac 17" . If yes how i do it?
    Thank you

    Only the 24" iMac models have user removable stands. To remove the stands from the 17" & 20" models requires opening and some disassembly of the computer. This is complicated and difficult, and would most likely void any warranty you have left on the machine if it was not done by a Certified Apple Technician.
    But it has been done by some users in the past;
    Why no VESA mount!? grrrr....

  • Has anyone removed the screen protector from Otterbox?

    I have the Otterbox on top of Apple's anti-glare screen protector as suggested in this forum. I'm having way too much trouble getting a response out of buttons on the edge of the screen or in the corners. I touch and touch, even press hard but no response. Even getting the phone to snap a picture is near impossible. I have no problems when I remove the Otterbox case, so I know it isn't a screen issue. I love the feel and protection afforded by the Otterbox case and would like to use it. Has anyone removed the screen protector from their case, and if you have, can you comment on the subsequent performance of it? Of note, I use the Otterbox case because I have young kids who use the phone - we don't have a landline. In other words, it's not dust protection I'm looking for, but impact protection. I hate to tear up a $50 case if it won't function anymore.

    I removed the screen protector that was part of the Otterbox case and it now works much better. Still have the Power Support anti-glare screen protector on it. Also removed the small cover over the camera lense and now my pictures are more clear. Finally, I removed the covers over the speakers and I can hear the speakerphone again. These mods made the case an A+ for me. A little less protection but much better functionality.

  • Is there a way to get the calculator from the dashboard to appear along with other programs?  Can anyone recommend a calculator which will work as a stand alone app?

    AS it stands now, in order to use the calculator that comes with the Dashboard, you cannot read from a list of numbers in, lets say, word or excel. The dashboard is full screen and nothing can stand along side it. Is there a way to get the calculator from the dashboard to appear along with other programs?  Can anyone recommend a calculator which will work as a stand alone app?

    there is one, just search with spotlight "Calculator".
    It works great!
    Hope this helps.

  • Has anyone ever succeeded to use the scope_identity() from the LabVIEW DB toolkit ?

    Hi,
    Using LabVIEW 2014 DS, and MSSQL 2008R2.
    I have configured a table with identity, so the indexed will be incremented automatically.
    I am trying to get the ID of the last Insert command that I am using.
    I am trying to SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY() but with no success.
    I read about trying to so it with a procedure or transaction, but I just could not succeed myself.
    Has anyone ever succeeded to use the scope_identity() from the LabVIEW DB toolkit ?
    If yes, can you please elaborate more or even share the code ?
    Thanks, 
    Amitai.

    Yes I have...let me dig out some code...
    I do my INSERT query (with a semicolon at the end) and in the same query string do a "SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY() as inserted_id;" - essentially what you're doing here is running two queries in one - one to insert your data and the second to retrieve the ID. From what I remember of when I did this (last year?), I think scope_identity() is valid for the same connection so as you're doing both queries in the same connection it should always be valid.
    I then do this to get the ID (pardon the crappy VI snippet):
    Essentially I execute the query and the result is a 2D array that contains one row/column which is your last inserted ID.

  • I have accidentally deleted the trash bin in my mailbox and can no longer move any deleted mail into the trash.  I thought I was removing all the emails from the trash but somehow managed to delete the bin instead.  Does anyone know who to reinstate it?

    I have accidentally deleted the trash bin in my mailbox and can no longer move any deleted mail into the trash.  I thought I was removing all the emails from the trash bin but somehow managed to delete the bin instead.  Does anyone know who to reinstate the bin?

    You are running 10.6.8? If yes, I assume you have your install disks? As the trash bin is part of Mail app and that is an integral part of the OS, the only way I know to get it back is to reinstall the OS. You won't lose any files, just reinstall the OS over the top of the current system.

  • How do I remove the stand from my 24' intel imac model ( A1225)

    Hello, I am moving my imac 24' from Europe to the states in my baggage. The stand mustbe removed to fit it in. Some models allow a business card or credit card to insert in the lever of the stand and the back of the imac housing where the stand is attached to. Thus oin pulling the stand levekl down with the acard inserted you will see a few srerws to unscrew to removing the stand. This is not with this imac 24' intel model number (A1225)
    Are there any tips or help that one knows to removing the stand?
    Thanks..

    ==> Removing the 2007 24" iMac aluminum stand
    ==> Removing a VESA mount and replacing the aluminum stand
    I recently inherited a 2007 24" iMac that had been VESA mounted.  I searched all the online boards to figure out how to remove the VESA bracket and install the aluminum stand that I bought on Ebay.  Despite 6 years since the iMac was made, I really didn't feel the online posts gave a clear answer, so I felt compelled to give my input.
    First, the 'latch' mechanism that locks and unlocks the stand/VESA mount is RIGHT next to the top of the slot -- it's about 1/16" into the casing and shaped like a shallow L-shaped ledge that extends most of the length of the slot.  Here's a very effective way to hit it:
    * uninstalling stand;  put the computer on a bed at the edge; push the stand downward, somewhat hard, then slip a business card into the top of the slot,slanted 45 degrees upward.  do not push the business card hard at all.  it will hit the ledge/lever quickly.  leave it there.  now, insert a drivers license or credit card ON TOP of the business card, so it hits same ledge/lever but with more strength.  push a bit and start wiggling the stand.  the latch will release and you can now push the stand down to lock in the extended position, then remove the screws, install the VESA
    * uninstalling VESA:  the stand mechanism is already in the LOCKED/out position.  I spent about an hour trying to get it to lock into the extended position.  wrong.  it's already extended.  once you remove the VESA, install your stand, then follow the above guidance to unlock that mechanism and get your computer back upright.
    There are a lot of threads on this topic.  I hope this helps some.  My main insights are two;  1) the latch/ledge is very close to the top of the slot, and 2) that ledge can be caught fairly easily by pushing the stand down and using a flexible cardboard business card, then superimposing a harder plastic card on top while you wiggle the stand.

  • Has anyone retrieved a value from a system Matrix from selecting the row

    Hi everyone, I am trying to retrieve the value of a cell from the first column of a matrix depending on which row the user has highlighted.  I can access the value from specifying which row to retrieve the value from but not from the user selecting which row.   Im attempting do do this from the open items list system form which is accessed from the reports menu. 
    To retrieve the value from the first row my code is as follows:
    oMatrix = oForm.Items.Item("5").Specific
    DocNo = oMatrix.Columns.Item("1").Cells.Item(1).Specific.Value
    SBO_Application.MessageBox(DocNo)
    How do I change this code to access the value of the cell depending on which row is highlighted?
    Any help would be appreciated

    Hi Sally,
    you will get the selected row number on any event through "pVal.Row", you can get this value in a integer variable like:
    int i = pVal.Row
    and pass it in your code;
    DocNo = oMatrix.Columns.Item("1").Cells.item(i)
    or you can do same in this way also:
    you have to specify your particular cell as a edit text and get the value of that:
    oEditText=(SAPbouiCOM.EditText)oMatrix.Columns.Item("1").Cells.Item(i).Specific;
    string1 = oEditText.String;
    Hope it will help.
