I am confused here!

if the studs (vertical parts of frams) are 40" apart and the noggins ( spreaders are say every 20" )

Why are you trying to find them at 16 and 24?

Is there some cultural labnguage difference here about what a stud is?

An alternate fix rather than 100 holes in the wall is to use butterfly bolts ( expander bolts) these can hold up to 150Kg in any veneer wall
If nescessary drill extra holes in the frame of the TV haqnging frame4 to add more expande4r bolts into the wall

What type of wall mount bracket will I need

Depending on what you want, Just make sure it is made to hold at least a 32 inch LCD TV . If you would like to tilt it, buy a tilt mount. It needs to be mounted to the studs in the wall for best support. I recommend you pre wire the cables before hanging the TV,since they will be hard to get to after the set is mounted.

My Sony KDL-42EX440 will not turn on

Have you tried to do a "reset" ALL modern electronic items often get "locked up" and unplugging them from the wall will often get them going again. Unplug for at LEAST 30 seconds--then try again. If this does not help--the SMPS board may have failed on you. A good repair shop may be able to repair the board instead of replace it.

I have ceramic (terra cotta) block walls in my basement (house was built around 1920. The blocks are ridgid and were not laid very evenly, although the walls are sound. Plastering is an option, but with...

My house is of similar age and construction. I built a nice TV room in the basement several years ago. My method was the same as the way interior walls are built in new construction. I nailed a 2x4 to the ceiling near the wall. I nailed another 2x4 (pressure treated) to the concrete floor directly below the 2x4 on the ceiling. Then I toe-nailed vertical studs in place. For the studs I used 2x3's since this allowed me to get a nice flat plane on the front surface while allowing an inch of space on the back for irregularities of the block wall. I then covered the studs with water resistant drywall. The results were excellent and have held up very well. I also use a dehumidifier, since my basement was somewhat damp. I built the dehumidifier into a cabinet so that it draws air from the space between the block wall and the 2x3 wall. I don't need to run the dehumidifier in the winter. For the interior walls separating the TV room from the rest of the basement (furnace and workshop area) I used 2x4s for the studs, but the 2x4 along the top and bottom were just like the first wall I described. And by the way, in order to nail the pressure treated 2x4 to the floor, I used a power-nailer that uses charges that look like 22 caliber gun blanks. This seems spooky, and is wicked loud (use earplugs and safety glasses!), but it is inexpensive and very effective. The nails don't have to resist pulling out, they only have to resist being slid around, since the wall stud holds the pressure treated 2x4 against the floor. Good luck!

still not sure it would hold it

best of luck

No mounting instructions in package. will it work on an LG 47 inch led tv? To many peices in the package?

It should work with the LG 47". you need to find the correct bolts that fit the mounting holds on your TV. There should be a bag of bolts packaged with the Omnimount.

How are you supposed to use the plastic piece (for walls with no studs) if you want to screw the nail into a wall that has no studs?

hope you dont plan on hanging anything heavy on this. get a drill bit and drill a hole smaller than the anchor you are using, tap the anchor into the sheetrock until its flush, drill the hole at least an 1/8 inch smaller than the anchor so it will be tight enough to keep the anchor from spinning when you insert the screw

How do I find the wall support or inner support in my wall? I want to mount a crt tv on my wall, I want to be sure it is completely secure.

there are a few ways. If u mean the studs in the wall just use a stud finder sold at lowes or tap on wall till you here and feel a solid sound. Tap a small nail through if u want to b sure. Also outlet boxes are nailed to studs. So tap on the wall near an outlet and u should find one fast. Then using a tape measure go 16" off that stud in the direction you want to hang the tv mount.most studs are in the wall every 16". hope this helpd
