Hi i have the lg42lh3000 lcd tv and half the screen is darker than the other

The CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluroscent Lamp) at the darker end is not lit. Either the CCFL is fused or the ballast is needing repairs.

How do you remove the stand from a panasonic TH-50PV30 50 inch type with 3 levvels of storage shelving. Thanks.

Never owned the this TV, but from what I can tell the outside edges on either side should have a series of screw holes. Even if you can't see the actual screws, there are philips head and there are in the bottom of those 4 or 6 holes. Take those out to get the TV off the stand.

Those may also be covers for a less complex connect to the spot where the additional speakers normal mount. Either way, remove still starts there.

How many screws has to be taken out for removing from pedestal stand of lg 47" Scarlet.

The 42” has 4 screws and the 50” has 5 screws.

So, your 47” may have 4 or 5 screws on the back to hold that base on.

The pattern is:


If there are only 4 screws then the middle (or 5th) screw will not be there.

Good Luck.

Im wanting mount my 37 in toshiba regza but i can figure out how to take off the bottom brace that supports the tv as it stands. i have taken off all the screws but the brace or base still wont come off.

Carefull turn the tv on it's back and remove the 2 black screws in the bottom of the stand in addition to the screws on the back that I assume you already removed.

Need base for Insignia TV

It will either slide out from the front/back or to the side..Some actually bolt on from the bottom using screws/bolts.And then again some are not meant to be taken off.Make sure it is a wall mountable tv.Then try to take the stand off as directed.

Removing base from tv

I researched this problem on the net and found the solution. Someone on one of the posts said the base can be removed by taking out four screws - all from the back of the TV. One screw is the one closest to the power plug, the next screw is beside it, the remaining two screws are the corresponding screws on the opposite side of the base panel (still on the back of the TV). Once these screws are removed the base comes off including the mounting bolt and the rectangular shaped plastic panel. There are no electronics or any components inside the base panel, only the bolt and plastic base which are held on by the four aforementioned screws. It was very easy to remove!
