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.

  • How do I remove the stand from my HP W2371b monitor?

    I am trying to install my monitor on a wall mount and I have to get the stand off before I can.  I got the flat "foot" part off with little or no issue - - but the actual "stand" part will not budge! I don't want to damage the monitor - am I missing a tab or something?  Please advise.

  • 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....

  • How do I remove the background from a movie / sound problems

    Apologies, not really sure what I’m doing…
    How do I remove the background from a movie I made?
    I imported a QT movie at 368/272 pixels, but for whatever
    reason the HTML jumps up to 550/400.
    The movie is still 368/272 but there is a background border
    making it 550/400. Tried all sorts of settings in Publish but
    can’t get rid of it. Can I keep the movie (and controller)
    and not the background?
    I can get round it by changing the background colour, but
    surely there must be another way.
    Also: My QT file was fine but the .flv has a stuttering
    sound, any idea what could cause that?
    Thanks, and Thanks!

  • 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.
