If you want to put the LCD on a stand you"ll need the original that screws on the bottom. best way to mount LCD is to the wall or on a metal stand. There are holes on the back of the LCD to mount the bracket most brackets have a lot of holes just move the bracket up or down until two line up. The screws are almost all metric coarse thread and usually are included with the bracket kit. I got my kit at Wal Mart
The mounting bracket screws will short onto some electronics if you fit screws that are too long and from your superb description, it sounds like you did everything right but do not mention what screws you used.
Smoke coming from a TV is always a sign that something has burned out and unfortunately it is never a fuse. The TV will need fixing, there is no chance of it still working after it has smoked.
If you are lucky, it will just require a power board but you need a TV engineer to look at it as it is not something that you can usually do yourself. Even if you bought a new power board and installed it, there is no guarantee that the main board/processor board or inverter has not blown as well and this is why I recommend a professional looks at it.
Unless your house insurance covers the damage (if the excess is not too high).
SOME TV'S HAVE A PANEL TO ACCESS THE A/V CABLES...I.E. HDMI,S-VIDEO,COMPONENT,ECT. IF YOURS IS THE CASE LOOK WHEN YOU REMOVE THE PANEL AND SEE IF THERE ARE ANY COVERS THAT NEED TO BE REMOVED SO YOUR STAND CAN SLIDE INTO PLACE.
first buy the right bracket for weight of tv there is 4 big black screws near center of tv ( IF FITTED )take them out place bracket over 4 screw holes then use the 4 screws you took out make sure they are tight ( DONT FORGET TO TAKE STAND OFF )
If you decide to wall mount your LCD TV, always use a ULlisted
wall bracket appropriate for the size and weight of the
38.6 lbs (17.5 kg)
37HL17: 46.3 lbs (21.0 kg)
42HL17: 59.5 lbs (27.0 kg)
1) CAUTION: Two people are required for installation.
2) Unplug and remove any cables and/or other component
connectors from the rear of the TV.
3) Follow the instructions provided with your wall bracket.
Before proceeding, make sure the appropriate bracket(s) are
attached to the wall and the back of the TV as described in the
instructions provided with the wall bracket.
4) After attaching the appropriate bracket(s) to the wall and the
back of the TV, remove the pedestal stand from the TV as
Removing the Pedestal Stand
1) Carefully lay the front of the unit face down on a flat,
cushioned surface such as a quilt or blanket. Leave the stand
protruding over the edge of the surface.
Note: Extreme care should always be used when removing
the pedestal stand to avoid damage to the LCD panel.
2) Remove the jack pack cover on the back of the TV to expose
the pedestal stand screws. The jack pack cover can be removed
3) Remove the five screws. This will
allow removal of the pedestal stand.
4) Once you have removed all five screws holding the pedestal
stand in place, remove the pedestal stand from the TV by
sliding the pedestal stand away from the TV.
There is a slotted area on the bottom of the unit and the bracket on the stand slides over top of it. There should have been four screws that came with the packaging that fit in the four locations in the lower center of the cabinet back that secures the unit to the Stand.
I hope this helps,
With the tv laying flat on to the screen, remove the two screws in the recessed holes. Then remove the two screws above towards the input panel, one under AUDIO-L/AUDIO-R and the one under HDMI-1. The stand should easily slide out.
If you are looking at the back of your tv there is the stand bracket with a screw on each side. remove those screws and nothing will happen. that is the problem i was having but if you look right above the ones you just took out and there is going to be a black screw. take those off from each side and it will fall off.
