Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,
Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...
Initially, have you checked underneath the stand?
Still, almost always it would require carefully prying the rear cover off the main cover with the use of a thin stiff blade. There would be locking tabs on the edges of the rear and front cover.
Please ensure that the antenna cable is disconnected from the RF IN jack when attempting the separation.

How long are the removed 4 screws please? If relatively short, then it would be the back cover that has to be off. On the other hand, if long, then it would be the front cover that must be separated.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The screws aren't but 3/8 the long but are buried at least 3/8 in the back.
Expert:  Louie replied 2 years ago.
Which then confirms that it would be the rear cover off. Isn't there a slot at the rear cover indentation for the stand? Would you consider using a flat bladed screw driver as there would likely be a locking tab there?
