What must I do to attach a Wall Mount to my Toshiba 20HLV16 LCD Chassis?
Need to attach the wall mount to the rear of my new TV/DVD. Do I remove the lifting handle and attach the mount there or what must I do to prepare my TV for hanging on the wall? I purchased an Omnimount 17FM-T Tilt LCD mount to use, as it was one of several recommended by the merchant I purchased the TV from. Thanks for the help!

ok it depends on the wall mount but this is the basic idea of it. make sure there is at least one other person to help you.
1. Make sure everything is off and unplugged from the tv.
2. If you have cables holding your tv to the wall remove them.
3. there should be securing screws at both sides of the arms attaching the tv to the wall. loosen them/ remove them.
4. lift and pull the tv away from the wall. have a friend help you.
5. remove the screws and bolts from the tv and the wall mount and you should be done.
If this doesn't work, find the manual for the wall mount. if you need help or additional tips put them in the comments. Thanks

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

allow removal of the pedestal stand.
4) Once you have removed all five screws holding the pedestal

Remove Back plate screws and match up the holes on the wall mount device with the holes on the back of your television. Attach the television to mounting devise, Then mount both to the wall. Hope this helps you with your problem.
Usually, UMC include the screws already screwed into the wall mounting holes that you should use to attach a wall bracket. This is so you dont then go and use longer screws often supplied with wall mounts that are way too long and can damage the parts inside the TV.
I have the same TV, and I bought a mount with 4 connector holes. I was able to connect 3 of the 4 and it has been fine as the TV does not weigh too much. The TV was not designed with the current mode of either wall or stand mount. It was just intended for stand. I have had it on the wall for over 2 years.
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.
