If you look at the back of your TV, locate four big screw/bolts. Its the biggest screws/bolts you'll ever find at the back. 2 each side that holds the unit to its swivel base. roughly 12" from the left edge and 12" also from the right edge. remove all this four (4) screws/bolts then ask someone to help you lift from the base.

I purchased an element electronics 32" Full HD digital LCD from Walmart with a Ready Set Mount LCD/Plasma Wall Mount, however the mount does not attach to the tv at the base. Do you know if this is...

The wall mount is not made to be fit into the base, it is attached to the back the TV, TV uses what they call VESA mounting which had different pattern for each TV. Look at your TV user manual to find out the VESA mounting number.
If you want TV wall mount that can swivel you can try looking here:

Or Google "swivel wall mount"
I got my from COSTCO.

I want to wall mount a FX2490HD and cannot remove the base I have remove the screw form the back but the base will not move

Hi, there are two screws underneath the legs of the stand and one other screw to hold the attachment that the legs connect to. If you have removed all three screws then try swiveling the legs.

How to mount a conia CL3201HDR on the wall, no screws in box and not sure what thread size to purchase.

You need to purchase the wall mount separately. They range from a simple "on the wall" mount to swivels and extending mounts, and can be very expensive for the fancy features.

First, make sure your set is wall mountable. In the center of the rear of the set there will be a square arrangement of bolt holes. I do not know of any newer sets without them, but it does not cost anything to take a look and make sure.

Next, you need to decide on a mount. Personally, I did not want to spend allot, so I found a very inexpensive, yet good quality, "straight" mount at Sears for around $25.00. It does not extend or swivel, but all I wanted was to get it on the wall. Different screws and bolts were supplied with it and I was able to match up what worked for the back of my set.


You ABSOLUTELY MUST find where your wall studs are! This is CRITICAL! DO NOT use any kind of expanding bolt to mount your set or it will eventually come loose and FALL!

I had an inexpensive "stud finder" (around $10-15) to show me where the wall studs are... Sears sells them too....You want to bolt your TV wall mount to the studs using 1/4" stud or lag bolts (they look like oversized wood screws) for maximum strength, if your mount will accept bolts that thick. Also use flat washers on the bolts. If your TV mount has its mounting bolt holes too wide apart for bolting to a standard 2" wide stud, mount a 6X6" piece of 1/2 plywood through your wall to the stud, using at least 4 #10 deck may be overkill, but it will be secure... my personal saying is, "If I can't hang from it, neither can my TV!" This is critical if you want to use a fancy swiveling mount that extends out since it will add stress to where you bolt it to the wall.

My mount was in two pieces.... a section that bolted to my wall, after I mounted a piece of plywood as I described above. This piece has a large pin that sticks up, and the part that mounts to my set (with the screws provided by the manufacturer of the mount) has a receiving hole that slides over the pin. When I need to take my set down, I simply lift it straight up.

I hope my long-winded solution did not bore you, and I wish you the best in hanging your set. Please take a minute and rate my solution.

Attaching 26 " lcd to stud wall

12 inches is the minimum for mounting the unit to the wall. I mounted a 42 inch LCD using a Sanus tilt (non-swivel) mount from Best Buy. We mounted it on wooden beams exactly 12 inches apart. Works great!

Swivel Base for a 42LC2D

Hi there is normally a set of 4 to 6 screws that hold the base to the tv set that you remove , you can then possibly use the same screws to attach the wall bracket to the back of the tv before mounting on the wall
hope this helps

Not wall mountable???

I have wall mounted my Protron. Here is a website that has a picture of this wallmount: There is a metal plate screwed into the back (near the top) of the set. The wall mount attaches to the back of that metal plate. Only problem is, I can't remember if that metal plate came with the tv, or with the mount. This mount can swivel up, down, left or right up to 15 degrees. It worked well for us. If you don't go with this mount, make sure the one you decide to get can handle the weight, and has VESA compliant mounting points. One word of advice, save the screws (and label it), so if you ever decide to use the base again, you can find it. I'm learning that lesson the hard way.
