It is very unusual to have wall studs this far apart - most are 16" on center. Mounting anything that is very heavy on studs so far apart will not be safe. Have you considered a table top stand?

What type of wall mount bracket will I need


Depending on what you want, Just make sure it is made to hold at least a 32 inch LCD TV . If you would like to tilt it, buy a tilt mount. It needs to be mounted to the studs in the wall for best support. I recommend you pre wire the cables before hanging the TV,since they will be hard to get to after the set is mounted.

What is the remote learning code for my 32" TV


Hello,

Mounting an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV on the wall may seem a bit overwhelming at first; but it's not that difficult. With a few simple tools, a proper mounting kit and a helper, the job will be a breeze. With a little bit of patience and an hour or two, your LCD TV will look great. Follow these steps to learn how to mount an LCD TV on the wall.

Things You'll Need:
LCD TV
Mounting kit
Tools
Step 1
Find the best spot on the wall to mount the LCD screen. Think about how much room you may want on that wall, especially if you plan on mounting speakers, too. You could hang a poster or picture relative to the size of the television on the wall to see if you like the placement.

Step 2
Pick a mounting kit. You can purchase mounting kits online (see Resources below) along with many other sites. Look to make sure the kit and TV are VESA compatible so that you have standard measurements and quick, easy attachment during the mounting process.

Step 3
You may already have tools needed to mount the TV. You'll need a set of screwdrivers, a socket set, a saw capable of cutting into drywall, a drill and a measuring tape. Having a stud finder with a built-in level is also great to pinpoint the exact location of the stud. The stud finder will be useful if you'll be running wires through the wall.

Step 4
Get the location for the TV picked out. Check near the bottom of the wall to see if the area you plan on using to run the wires is free of obstructions. Using the stud finder for this will make it easy.

Step 5
Find the studs. You should use at least one stud when mounting the LCD screen to make sure that the mounting bolts are driven into something solid that will support the weight of the TV and the mounting bracket. Using two studs is ideal for mounting larger TV's, those with screens larger than 37 inches. Use a pencil to mark the drill holes for the anchors and stud location.

Step 6
Secure the mounting rails to the back of the LCD screen. Double check them for proper fit. Make sure that they're hidden behind the body of the television for a finished look.

Step 7
Cut the hole for the wires to come through by using a drywall saw. The easiest way is to pull them out at the electrical box. This avoids having to go into the basement, closet or otherwise. You can purchase a wall box at your local home improvement store to place in the exit hole of the wires.

Step 8
Drill the holes for the bolt anchors in the locations that you measured and marked previously. Place the bolt anchors into the holes and tap them in with a hammer.

Step 9
Secure the wall mount to the wall. You'll need a socket wrench to ensure that the mounting bolts get snugged down tightly to the anchors. Use a level to make sure you've done an even job.

Step 10
Grab a friend or family member to help you lift the LCD screen onto the mount. Make sure it's locked down tightly and the screen is set to go.

Hope this helps and Good luck

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.

Now, THE MOST IMPORTANT PART!!!!!

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 screws...it 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.

I have an ULPT-X Omni Mount that I will be using with a Samsung 65" LED. How do I mount the ULPT-X to make sure that the exact center of the TV will be in the center of the wall space it will be hung on. ...


What do you mean by centered on the top and bottom? It doesn't need to be centered in the exact part of the wall for the tv. it all depends on what your viewing height is for where you want the tv vertically. Once you figure that out you mount it where you want it for your personal viewing preference.
Thank you,

The studs in my wall are 20 inches apart and the wall mount requires them to be 16 inches apart. what do I do?


If I were in that situation I would fabricate a way to mount it using L brackets.
Using at least 2 and up to 4 L brackets of 2" in length I would drill one hole into the stud and the other end can be put in with a drywall anchor or other bolt-anchor type for your wall material.
I believe there are also wall mount types requiring use of only one stud...but don't quote me on it.

I'm trying to hang my 55" LCD TV on an outside wall. Studs seem to be 40" apart. I've tried nailing 16" and 24" and in between but found nothing. Help!


I am confused here!

if the studs (vertical parts of frams) are 40" apart and the noggins ( spreaders are say every 20" )

Why are you trying to find them at 16 and 24?

Is there some cultural labnguage difference here about what a stud is?

An alternate fix rather than 100 holes in the wall is to use butterfly bolts ( expander bolts) these can hold up to 150Kg in any veneer wall
If nescessary drill extra holes in the frame of the TV haqnging frame4 to add more expande4r bolts into the wall

There are two threaded holes in the back which appear to be for a bottom stand, whether you can still get something from Philips or may have to create something I don't know. rpadway@cwclaw.com.

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!
