You can just remove the screws before you send it in.

Also they do quick tests for backlight and dont need screws in all the holes, but if its too much bleed for you add a few it makes a world of difference.

Got pictures? Your description is confusing me a bit.

Here are some pictures and my findings.

Screw hole (close up) at top of display.

Screw holes at top of display.
448
Screw holes at bottom of display (note some of them are behind the tape).
448
Screw holes at either sides of the display.
448
Original screw (silver) and screw I used to fill open screw holes (black).
448
Side of original screw (close up).
448
Top of original screw (close up).
448

Originally there are only 4 screws securing the backlight to the display. However, in total there are 14 screw holes to be filled. 3 on either side and 4 on top and bottom. They are symmetrical with each respective opposite side (i.e. top and bottom and each side). The default configuration only has the two outer (top and bottom) ones on either sides filled. The others are left empty.

I went ahead and secured all of the screw holes with screws. I tightened them pretty tight, but taking care not to strip the threads on either the screws or their respective sockets. Upon putting everything back together, the backlight bleed is much more tolerable now. I will post before and after pictures tonight when I do a more thorough analysis of the "after," since it's still quite bright outside (even with my blinds drawn). However, from my preliminary analysis, I am quite happy with the procedure!

Also I am looking at the VideoSecu LCD LED TV Wall Mount Full Motion with Swivel Articulating Arm for 23-37, up to 42 in TV Flat Panel Screen With VESA 200 100, 20 in extension and Post-installation Leveling System A35 from Amazon.com.
Can anyone comment on it?
Thx!

I just received my monitor. It is indeed a very nice monitor. Thanks for everyone on this forum. It has been very helpful. Also I measured VESA mount dimension. It is 100mmx100mm, just in case someone like me is new to this.

Are those standard PC screws (coarse or fine thread?)? Hard to tell from the pictures. I just got three of these and disassembled them to remove the stands, I guess they're coming back apart to add screws.

If we can identify exactly what they are I'd love to order a bag of them so I can fully populate all three.

To the gentleman requesting backlight bleed examples. It was really hard to get what seems to be an accurate representation via camera. It comes out blue and looks more pronounced that in real life, but I played with the curves until it looked about right when viewed on my monitor at least.

Below are three images. Each corresponds to one of my three 2710QW displays.
