Re: 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!

Re: How to Remove the Base

The 2 screws on each side directly above the stand legs need to be removed. You do not need to remove the big plastic back panel. Remember the TV is heavy, the screws are under pressure and when the screws are removed the TV will drop. I suggest 3 people, 1 to remove the screws and 2 to hold up each side during and after the screws are removed.

If you want to remove the speakers, just disconnect the wires at the TV source, & remove top 2 screws from the brackets on each side of the centerline. Lower the speakers & rotate the bottom forward & out the front.

Can not remove the stand to mount it on the wall

If the Aquos 46 is anything like the Aquos 42, the monitor is attached to the base with machine screws (bolts). They are located in the lower back portion of the monitor, probably need an Allen wrench to loosen and remove. Once that is done, the base can be removed from the monitor. Best way is to lay the monitor face down on a tabletop padded with foam, a quilt or blanket, etc to protect the screen as you work. Remove the stand from the monitor, not the monitor from the stand; it is easier and safer that way.

Remove base from tv?

How many screws did you remove? You should have eight, there are 2 screws along the bottom that are easy to miss. Make sure you check each hole with a flashlight just to make sure you got them all.

I just repaired a 26" in which the stand came off after I took the primary panel off in the middle of the back then the screws were visible that Olevia is talking about. You might have a different style but it does come off.

Removal of base

Most LCD HDTV televisions come with the option to remove the base, refer to your manual for proper instructions on removing the base. But make sure the TV is certified for wall mounting before you do anything - some are not certified and will not be wall mountable.
