Removing rotating base

I cannot remove the part of the base just below the indication lights on my TV. I had no trouble getting the base off, but the spacer between the base and the TV I cannot seem to get off. I seems like it should be able to come off, but I can't find any bolts or screws holding it on.

I Have a Panasonic Veria TH37PX600B flat screen TV with no manual,what I would like to do is take it off it's stand to wall mount it.But how? I've tried removing various screws and plates but it...

Unscrew the base screws attaching the base to the TV set, once the four screws have been removed, the TV can be seperated from the base as shown below. The circles are where the screws were on mine before I removed the base.

Im having trouble removing the base stand, I'm trying to mount it on the wall. I removed the 4 screws on the bottom but cant get the metal legs off.

Generally the stand is screwed on from the back of the TV. there should be 4 screws that will come out all the way and allow for the stand to be removed

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

Removing swival base

Most LCD TV's have 4 or 5 screws attaching the stand to the set near where the stand slots in at the bottom. The screws might be covered by a plastic panel.

Hope this helps.

Toshiba 52 inch flatscreen

I have just completed removing tha base from a Toshiba 52 inch HDTV. There are 5 screws in total. Three about 8 inches form the base and another 2 about 4 inches from the base in the arrangement shown below

(X) is a screw
(l) center line

X X X 3 screws 8 inches from base
X l X 2 screws 4 inches from base
______l______ The base

Keep your feet clear as your undoing the last screw..the base slides out vertically downward and weighs about 10-15 pounds so keep your the toes, fingers etc safe. The risk of being sued may explain why Toshiba didn't this publish in the US manual.

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!
