Re: Trying to undo a T.V main plug
If the cable is attached to the television, I don't recommend trying to detach it. Opening the TV voids any warranty, and is also unsafe for you and the TV. You can try feeding an extension cord through the hole, and tying up the attached cord behind the TV. It is usually not visible, and works perfectly, with no modification to the Television.

Yes you will need a stud finder and a drill . Find you're studs in the wall. Mark them. Then you're gonna want to locate we're you're gonna want you're tv. The height. Put you're mount up to the wall making sure the whole that will holding the screws that go into the wall are over you're studs. Get a marker mark the wholes. Then get you're drill and drill in you're screws. If the screw are real thick then I would juggest drilling pre holes this way you're studs do not crack
You need to know what the wall is made of - brick, block, concrete, plaster board, etc? Then go to a DIY store and ask - they'll advise you. If its an internal plaster-board wall then I doubt it will be strong enough. A while ago I hung a 4' x 3'6" mirror on a block wall using two fairly heavy duty rawl bolts and its still hanging.
First thing you need to do is obtain a mounting bracket for the television, then you will need a stup finder to find the stubs in the wall follow the directions that came with the bracket and drill small holes first, after the holes are drilled use the large mounting screws that came with the bracket.
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.
Is it a 32" or 37" as the one you mention at the top is a 32".
The product spec doesn't state that it is wall mountable, some aren't. However, providing your two holes are structural and not just into the plastic, what I did with my non mountable TV in a similar predicament to you, is to buy 2 steel rulers off ebay,(£2) drill holes in them to enable them to be screwed to the back of the TV, then where the two existing holes are at the end, used for haning the rulers up, I made into slots so that the ruler now looks like it has a hook on the end.
I then drilled holes in the wall corresponding to the same on the TV, shove rawl plugs in and then the screws leave about 5mm - 8mm head out of the wall in and literally just hook the TV on the wall.
Fit nice and flush & saves a fortune in rip off brackets too.
Finally figured out the correct arrangement or configuration through trial and error (and my wife's puzzle solving ability). It sure wasn't clear in the instructions, and I could not get the needed information from the website of either the manufacturer of wall mount system or TV...a little frustrating, but perseverance paid off. Given the price of the wall mount, I would think they could do a better job.
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
