Cannot figure out how to remove stand so I can mount TV on wall
I bought the 20 in Sylvania LCD/DVD combo and cannot figure out how to remove the stand the tv sits on so I can mount it on the wall. We tried removing the screws but still it not come off. It has the holes in the back of the tv to mount it so we did mount it on the wall but the stand is still attatched. Can you help me ?

My insignia 26 inch dvd combo TV stand can be removed by removing the access cover to your input connection. There are eleven black phillip-head screws. The three bottom screws also hold the plastic base cover in place. Remove all eleven screws and pull the stand out from below. The four philip-head screws on the back center of the TV is for the location of the wall bracket mount. Good luck.
I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.
The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.
My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.
Just called the company and was told that you simply remove the 4 screws on the back of the stand that is holding it to the tv....They do NOT recommend mounting the TV because it will make your warranty ineffective-per the rep.
Just mounted this TV this past weekend...Used Peerless flat panel wall mount bought on Ebay for $39.99 free shipping...Remove the stand by removing the 4 small screws on the back of the tv where the stand connects...then slide the stand off from the bottom...VOILA
I have the same TV, and I bought a mount with 4 connector holes. I was able to connect 3 of the 4 and it has been fine as the TV does not weigh too much. The TV was not designed with the current mode of either wall or stand mount. It was just intended for stand. I have had it on the wall for over 2 years.
