Dell 2407 WFP stand was stuck

I was getting ready to pack my monitor up to move it the other day, and I pushed the release button for the mount on the monitor stand. A second or two after the monitor was disengaged from the stand, I heard a loud “twang” coming from the stand. I didn’t think much of it because it looked fine, but later on I found it was stuck, in the lowest position.

The stand holds the monitor just fine, but it is about an inch too low in this position and I can not for the life of me get the height adjustment release button on the back to go down. The stand is really stuck. (Source:

I had the same problem with my display and tried to solve it on smart way for months. After virtually fixing everything else in my flat, I started working on this problem again today. I hate unsolved problems. As there were no other options left, I used the “hammer method” and there we go! :)
