Removing the stand/base off of the PLTV-4250

How can we remove the stand/base from the PLTV-4250? We removed the four screws on both sides of connecting the rods, but something is preventing the rods from siding out. Please help, customer support was helpless.

    can not remove base from tv

    Cannot remove base. Only solution I see is to "yank it off." Not sure that's the best solution.

I did the same exact thing. I unscrewed the main screws holding on the base, the rods run up through the TV, and I still couldn't get it to come out. So, I went and hired a repair guy to come and tell me what I was doing wrong and he said it should come right out. All he did was give it a good hard yank, and out it came. I was afraid I would tear up something, but it worked. Good luck. P.S. Those idiots at Customer Service don't care at all.

    I can't remove the stand off the tv

    Hi, i have instruction on removing your base stand.

    Removing the Pedestal Stand
    1) Carefully lay the front of the unit face down on a flat,
    cushioned surface such as a quilt or blanket. Leave the stand
    protruding over the edge of the surface.
    Note: Extreme care should always be used when removing
    the pedestal stand to avoid damage to the LCD panel.
    2) Remove the jack pack cover on the back of the TV to expose
    the pedestal stand screws. The jack pack cover can be removed
    without tools.
    3) Remove the four screws shown in the diagram below. This will
    allow removal of the pedestal stand.
    4) Once you have removed all four screws holding the pedestal
    stand in place, remove the pedestal stand from the TV by
    sliding the pedestal stand away from the TV.

    How does one remove the Toshiba TV stand. There does not appear to be any levers etc to release it. We want to mount our TV on the wall so the stand needs removing.

    ya we put four screws in the base of the stand you have to lay t.v. on a flat surface protect the screen from getting damaged by putting a blanket over it when u flip it over or lay it flat on the bed you will see the 4 screws that hold the base to the t.v., but if it's a model that's having trouble just leave the base on as you will probably be returning it the store where you bought it lol

    My insignia 26 inch dvd combo TV stand can be removed by removing the access cover to your input connection. There are eleven black phillip-head screws. The three bottom screws also hold the plastic base cover in place. Remove all eleven screws and pull the stand out from below. The four philip-head screws on the back center of the TV is for the location of the wall bracket mount. Good luck.

    42'' LCD PLTV-4250 MOUNTING

    The universal mounts generally have a selection of screws that are to fit different makes and models of tvs.
    If you bought the appropriate size mount for the size of your TV, there should be mounting holes that match your TV, and screws that will secure it.
    I have not seen any mounts that use more than four.

    How to Remove the Base

    I have an Olevia 42" TV. I was able to remove the base by removing 16 screws on the back side. They were arranged vertically in 4 sets of 4. The screws go through the back panel, through the base and attach (without nuts) directly into the inside of the TV. After removing the 16 screws the stand simply slides out.
    I tried removing two screws underneath the base area. They were small screws and were a pain to remove. I thought I would try that first instead of removing 16 screws but that did nothing.
    Good luck!
