SOURCE: 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!

Underneath the microwave, on the right & left hand corner sides at the back, there are levers that you pull down & it releases the mounting bracket.

None of these TVs have any problem removing the stand.
Stands for 32'' and larger TVs plug into the TV's body and are attached by 4 to 8 bolts that go through the cover, then through the plugged-in part of the stand and attach to the internal frame.
In most cases the bolts are 4 - one for each ray of the fork that goes into the TV.
Since bolts for the frame are metal bolts and bolts for the plastic back cover are usually wood-type screws (sharp on the top, wider thread) you can visually tell the one for the stand from the rest.
Look right above the stand for four, six or eight symettrically placed heads that are different from the ones you see on the corners.
Once you unscrew those the stand should feel more flexible and you can simply pull it back.
In order to do all that you have to have the TV laying on its face or back.
Watch out if it's heavy - you may need to support it towards the end of the operation. It's unlikely for it to get damaged if it falls down, but you still don't want to try your chances.
Giving it a little lift also helps unscrew the last bolts...otherwise all the force of the TV is pressing against it...and that makes it harder to unscrew.

There's a little more elaboration required on the above post...You need to remember that the base has two long pins that go up into the TV. These pins are held in by two screws each. The screws are on each side of the TV (two vertical inline screws, inside a small inset section). Remove all four screws and the TV will come up off the base. Pull it straight and gently, but firmly, to unseat it from the pins.
