    I have a LN-T527F and am trying to remove the stand for wall mounting by taking out the four screws. The screws spin but do not seem to to come up so I am unable to remove the stand. I've tried a magnetic screw driver - no luck.



    Is there some trick I'm missing?



    Thanks.

    I have the same problem. I have a samgung 46in F86bd. Exactly the same. The screws spin but do not come out, and hence I cannot remove the stand for wall mounting. Very frustrating. Any solutions?

    TO REMOVE BASE STAND (I have LE3788BD so assume it's all generic)



    Stay calm.



    Samsung's illustration and instructions to lay our TVs face down on soft cloth can cause a nightmare if you are trying to do this on your own unless your a clever fxxxker with magnetised screwdirvers.



    2 people are best for screwing techniques and your basic screwdrivers especially when you need to angle the TV so gravity helps the screws fall out



    You need to fully remove the 4 screws by helping them out, they will not fall out once loose. They are inaminate pieces of metal.



    Gently grasp the neck of the stand,



    while unscrewing each screw keeping upwards tension on the neck (a slight jiggle jiggle may also work)



    you should feel the screw biting on the thread rather than spinning around



    once you experience the intense joy of the first screw falling out your on a multiple rush home with the stand slipping out of the hole easily once the last screw is out.



    Happy screwing.

UNSCREW the FOUR (4) screws on the back panel (marked with an "S" next to their recessed holes.

Work with the panel screen-side up (ie on its back - we did it with the LCD on the bed), and just JIGGLE the stand back and forth until the screws drop out. This make take some doing, but using force is a no-no (as the screw mounts are only plastic). Obviously the screws MUST be undone, so just keep unscrewing them while someone else jiggles for you.

Thats it. The plastic cover (from the manual & warranty bag) covers the hole.

After spending 2hour trying to get the stand off my samsung LE37R88D I finally managed! You need to pull the stand very hard, while unscrewing at the same time, hope this helps the rest of you :o)

I too had the same problem tonight?????  After a few attempts of trying to pull the television off its stand I finally realized the four screws at the back need to come out completely, so I tipped the television backwards until all of the screws fell out, then lifted the television off

I have a Samsung LNT4665F and did everything mentioned before on this thread. Nothing worked and it seemed like I was making no progress with loosening the screws. Here's the trick that did it for me: Use a #1 Screwdriver that comes to a severe point on its end. Most phillips head screwdrivers are #2s and the grooves are too thick to turn the screw. As a test, try your screwdriver on the screw that is visible next to all the A/V inputs. Do not take this screw out! Just see if you can turn it. It's the same type of screw that is deep within those "S" holes.

I unscrewed while the TV was upright and on the stand. I then flipped it panel side down on a couch and jiggled the stand until all four screws fell out.

I thought the superglue idea was neat but then I thought what if I leave a mess, why not try sticky tape first.

Just a bit of insulating tape put sticky side out on a PH2 crosshead screwdriver, push it home and pull on the tape and out they came came.

No need to put the tele on its face or its back, and the stand stayed in place after the screws were removed - it's a good fit - but don't leave anything fragile underneath just in case.

Good luck

Jerry

Be careful not to scratch the frame around the edge of the screen while you're trying to get the stand off. What worked for me with a Samsung 37A552 was to lie the TV across the gap between two soft chairs, with the screen facing the ceiling. Slide yourself in under the TV and the 4 S screws will just fall out when you unscrew them. Then the stand pulls out easily.

I have the 46" version of the TV.

Unscrew the four screws marked 'S' on the rear of the TV at the bottom (you'll need a Phillips screwdriver).

We had to unscrew the damn things for what seemed an eternity, but if you tip the TV upside down and tilt it, eventually the screws fall out. The fascia supplied with the TV can then be fitted over the hole.

Stay cheerful,

Dave & Eileen

I am able to remove three out of four screws from 46" Samsung LCD however not fourth one. I looks like stuck inside. I dont know what to do. Any ideas?????

Posted on Mar 09, 2010

Ive just removed the base stand off my 40" Samsung and all you hace to do is remove the 4 screws that are marked S and the base slides out
But the screws must be fully removed from the sockets before the stand comes away so a magnetic screw driver or something simular is what to need to fully take them from the sockets.
Hope this helps as some of the prevoius replys really helped me
Happy Screwing Folks

Here is your problem guys your trying to take the wrong screws its not the 4 at the bottom of the stand its the four that are marked s at the back base of the tv under the sansung moddel number sign x

Posted on Sep 06, 2008

We had same problem . The solution: Follow the manual directions and loosen up the screws, they do not come out.
Then turn TV, UP side down (Screen facing the ceiling), the screws will fall out. BINGO. We used thermocol from packing as 4 props to keeep TV (screen facing UP)

Posted on May 25, 2008

  • reido4456 Dec 17, 2010

    Thal's the way to do it, TV upside down (screen facing upwards to ceiling NOT downwards like the manual says.

×

DO NOT TAKE THE BACK OFF OF THE TV! There are 4 screws marked "S" - simply loosen these while pulling down lightly on the foot assembly - the foot assembly should come off as soon as the 4 screws are removed!

Posted on Apr 15, 2008

I found these articles very useful, another tip in my case I already had it mounted on my wall and didnt want to take it down so I used a tiny dab of super glue and held it on the screw for a second before gently unscrewing them and pulling the screws out with the screwdriver I used loctite super glue Its the best ive found

Posted on Feb 09, 2008

I am having the same problem right now. I hope you have figured it out since, but if not, this is what i got after downloading the manual off the Samsung website. 1. Place the TV face down on a soft cloth or cushion on a table. 2. Remove four screws from the back of the TV. 3. Separate the stand from the TV. 4. Cover the bottom hole with a cap.

I have recently bought a Samsung SM2033HD TV and want to wall mount it. I can remove the base but how do I remove the collar that joins the base to the TV.


Your tv is not fully VESA compliant. You cannot remove the collar. There are mounts available that grip the screen instead of screwing into the back. This type will look better.

How to remove the stand from samsung 860 52"


  1. Spread the comforter out on a flat surface such as the floor.
  2. Step 2 Lay the Samsung flat-screen television face down on the comforter on the floor.
  3. Step 3 Use the magnetized screwdriver to gently unscrew the four to six screws securing the stand to the television.
  4. Step 4 Remove the screws with the magnetized screwdriver. If you do not have a magnetized screwdriver, cover the end of a normal screwdriver with masking tape with the adhesive side out so that it will catch the screw and pull it from the hole.
  5. Step 5 Pull the stand from the back of the television
  6. Step 6 Mount the television to the wall with wall-mounting hardware you can purchase from any home entertainment store.

Wall Mount for Panasonic TC26LX50


Panasonic will not recommend any other brand as they don't test other brands, its a Liability issue for them, after all if you set falls off the stand your calling them. For a stand, find one rated for you TV's size and weight, try not to be on either end of the range as you want to aim for center of the range. Look for 22-32" and weighted for at least 25% heavier than the set.

Whilst watching tv after 10 to 15 min screen goes blank but sound ok ,when u turn tv off then back on u get pitcure for about 10 minthen goes off again


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.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

I had the same issue with my Samsung LN52A550. The 4 screws holding the TV stand are quite small and deep inside the holes. You can not take the stand off without take them out completly. I tried to remove them with magnetic screwdriver, tweezers but didn't help. So, by laying down my TV on its back on my sofa letting the TV bottom and the stand parts outside and lay down beneath to unscrew them again. With the grativity, some screws fall out right away, some may need unscrew a little bit more or shake the stand a little bit. I could say it's a very bad design about this screwing system. So, good luck then.

How to remove the stand from samsung LCD TV


Place the tv on its screen flat on a soft surface,
you need to remove all the screws, not just the stand one marked.
Lift the back panel and then you will be able to slide down the stand, when you have removed the back cover you will also see where how your wall mount will fit to the chassis.
Place all the screws back on the back lid.

HOW TO TAKE OUT THE STAND


Usually it is in the owners manual, but if not, try removing the screws on the back bottom of the base. Just lay that LCD on a flat surface like a bed and then you should be able to see how to remove the base. usually 4 screws. I haven't seen this exact model though. Good luck. Jay
