The question is not whether you can, but what will it do? I wouldn't recommend it for a couple of reasons. First, the additional heat will be very bad for the electronics. Second, the backlight inverter boards generate high voltage which will act like a magnet to attract and soot and dut kicked up from the fireplace, eventually causing problems. Unless you plan on having the fireplace for decoration only, don't do it.

How do I take the stand off of the TV? (For wall mounting)


There will be clips or screws on the back of the TV which will need to be removed and the base stand will slide out of the bottom of the TV. Do NOT start taking screws out of the back of the TV without the wall mount with instructions. Sometimes there are spacers that need to be used with the wall mount and generally only four screws need to be removed from the TV. The TV should have instructions on how to prepare the TV for a wall mount as well. All are different, but very similar to do. If you lay the TV face down on a soft surface (do not slide it around) you probably can see what screws need to be removed to remove the TV base. Keep the screws with the stand for later use if desired because you will need them to re-install the case later. Here are two examples;

I hope this helps and good luck!

No screws for wall mounting 42 inch tv


any hardware store will have them bring your tv manual with you it will tell you the spec on the screw to connect to the 4 pre existing nuts on the back of the tv as far as from the mount to wall it will be a standard lag bolt small enough to fit threw the hole and long enough to go threw the drywall and about an inch and a half of the studd 2" to 2 1/2" inch lag bolt will work

Remove base from TV


Remove 4 screws holding the vertical metal bracket in place. These are located just above the bottom of the rear centre of the TV. The bracket will then slide out.

You might find it easier to remove the footplate first. Simply remove all screws from the bottom of the base. The metal plate and the plastic shield will then detach.

Lcd television trips circuit breaker when plugged in to wall outlet. Problem started yesterday after wall mounting the unit.. Removed wall mount and it still happens (worked fine before wall mounting...


I would check 2 things. If the TV trips another breaker in the house of the same rating, you probably have a short in your TV and will need to have it serviced.(You didn't drop it did you? :-) ) The short may also occur by too much stress on the power cord where it enters the TV, common to need to cram the cord into small spaces when wall mounting. If the TV only trips that particular breaker, I would try replacing the breaker. Replacing the breaker costs very little and will only take you a few minutes. You can buy a replacement breaker at most hardware stores. Just make sure to disconnect the main supply first! Also, make sure the breaker is rated correctly, using a higher amperage breaker will increase your chances of starting a fire.

Stand


You would need an actual wall mount bracket for your TV. Here is a link that you should be able to find what your looking for.

Childproofing tv


At Sam's club you can buy what is called a "Plasma" floater for about $77 that lets you mount your LCD or Plasma on the back of the unit, raise it up and keep it much more out of the way of kids:

(search under "Urban Loft 60" Entertainment Console" at Sam's club to find it)

The floater can be purchased seperate from the console table. AND it will work with the Whalen console I bought at Costco (I called Whalen and they confirmed it will work, it has all the right mounting brackets installed already).

(search under "Whalen Furniture Plasma Floating Mounting Bracket" at Sam's club).

Could drill some holes into the base of the stand and secure it to what ever you have it sitting on.

tie down strap that prevents tipping. You have to secure the strap someplace with a self tapping wood screw and the other end of the strap connects to the base of the TV.

Yes they are the mounting holes but I would not trust a universal mount to hold an expensive TV set on a wall.
