TV surface swival security mounts

My husband and I own a small motel, we bought some used tv cabinets that already had tvs in them. These tvs are 10 + years old so we want to put our tvs in the cabinets because they are newer and bigger. The problem is the tvs in the cabinet are on a sviwal mount and we can not figure out how to get them off the mount. These are probalby old moldels judging by the age of the tv. Please help before my husband ripps the cabinet apart!!

Madam, in most cases the swivel mounts are fixed at the base of the TVs with a pair of Bolts / Screws and Nuts.
Please check.

My led tv just shuts off.wait 10 mins and it can


Seems that your TV is subjected to overheating. Flat screen TV's need ventilation or they will suffer terribly. If the TV is inside a cabinet, air does not circulate well and in summer is may over heat. In winter the room temperature also plays its part in overheating the TV. When the problem happens, observe why, feel the temperature in the room and not the days it happens. If it shuts down and then 10 minutes later if restarts, this is temperature related problem. Try and place your TV on an small low cabinet so that the rear of the TV has enough air circulation without the hot air that the TV produces returned into the TV back panel. normal air is usually sucked from below the TV and expelled above it. Place your hands on the top back part of the TV and feel the heat. place your hand below the back part of your TV and feel how cool it feels. When a Flat screen TV is placed inside a cabinet designed for TVs, the air circulation is affected, and it recycles hot air back through the lower part of the TV therefore heating it to a critical level that it eventually shut down to prevent damage to components. And in winter, when your heaters are on, the room heat can actually damage the TV in those cabinets. Try and place the TV in the open part of the room and see if there are changes with the problem. if it stops, then that was the problem.

Screw size for mount and tv un32f5500af


This TV is VESA mount compliant with a spacing of 200MM x 200MM. the mount holes are M8 1.25 and about 23MM deep. 3 of the holes are recessed and one hole is near surface. Adding a 2-3 MM margin for a typical washer and the mount itself, M8 1.25, 25MM screws might be the best to mount this TV.

I am using the Sanus simplicity SMF3 mount (bought from costco). The spacers provided with this mount are 22MM which makes the supplied M8 35MM screws too small with the spacers. Without the spacers, the supplied M8 16MM screws are too small. With spacers, I think the screw size should be M8 45MM and without spacers it should be M8 25MM

I am thinking a vinyl washer might be a good addition to the assembly (with my sanus mount).

Found this site useful to understand the screw dimensions.

Bought a phillip tv from a pawn shop they said it was a motel tv it work fine but dont seen to get all the cable channel it seen like it still program for a motel,,it might said HBO channel 35 on top but...


if your TV unit is cable ready no need for tuning to get all the cable program.if the TV is what we call surplus and already repaired with the technician maybe it was re channel so you can't see the exact channel from the cable. if the problem is the cable system you can ask to the cable operator for the assistance.

Most hotels put a security box on the back of their TVs. Sometimes these boxes can be a pain to remove. I suggest posting what kind of box is mount behind or on your tv and asking how to remove it and reset the tv to factory defaults.

Much like anything in your home, TV screens get dirty with fingerprints and dust and require a periodic cleaning. Keeping your TV screen clean is essential for ensuring a clear picture. However, cleaning the front of your TV is not something that should be left for the cleaning lady. The use of certain cleaning products and solvents can damage the front of your TV screen. Special care must be taken in order to make sure that your TV screen is cleaned properly.
Every kind of TV has different steps for proper cleaning. If you are unsure what kind of TV you own, consult your TV user's manual to ensure that you are using the right cleaning method.
  • Direct-View - Older direct view TV's can be cleaned with glass cleaner and a paper towel. Newer tubes that may contain any special coatings, like an anti-glare coating, should be cleaned with a damp cotton cloth. If you are unsure if you have any special coatings, it is best to be safe and use the damp cloth.
  • CRT Rear-Projection - Before you can begin cleaning, you need to determine if you do, or do not have a screen shield. A screen shield is a hard plastic cover over the front of the TV screen. If you can't tell, give the front of the TV a light tap. Another way to tell is to check for ridges in the screen area. If you can feel ridges on the screen, then you do not have a screen shield. Rear projection TVs without a screen shield require a special kind of cleaner and rag. These are available for purchase at your local TV service center. Those that do have a screen shield should be cleaned with a dry or damp soft cloth. If it's extremely dirty, a mild soap may be used. Do not use paper products, such as paper towels, to clean the screen shield. Paper products GA_googleFillSlot("TL-IMU-Article"); b3342371.3;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=300x250;ord=[timestamp]? can easily scratch the surface of the shield. Screen shields can have a tendency to streak while cleaning. If this happens, use a dry cloth and buff the screen in a small circular motions.
  • Microdisplay Rear-Projection - All microdisplay TVs have some sort of screen shield on the front. These TVs should be cleaned with a damp cloth. Microdisplays with a shiny screen shield can be cleaned with a mild soap if extremely dirty. Those with a flat screen shield should not be cleaned with any cleaning agents. Do not use paper products to clean the front of the TV because they could scratch the screen surface.
  • Plasma - Plasma owners should clean the front of the TV with a soft, damp cloth. The use of a mild soap for heavy cleaning is acceptable. The use of heavy cleaning agents could strip the special coatings on the screen, and paper products can scratch the front of the TV.

  • LCD Flat Panel - Be careful with flat panel LCD TVs! Use a slightly damp soft cloth to clean the LCD screen, then immediately dry with a soft cloth. Do not press hard on the screen during cleaning. Doing so could cause severe damage to the display. Do not use any cleaning solvents, such as glass cleaner or soaps, to clean the LCD screen. Paper products could scratch the front of the screen. If you have a pet or child that rubbed something on the screen that you feel could stain or damage it, contact your local TV service center for assistance.
When dusting the TV cabinets, dust with a damp cloth or a mild cleaner. Paper products can scratch the surface of high-gloss cabinets, so avoid paper products. Heavy cleaners can strip the finish off of TV cabinets over time. When cleaning speaker grilles, dust with a dry cloth. Wet cleaners could stain or damage the grille cloth.

Firstly i do not have a projection tv problem


I've searched everywhere for any info in regards to your TVs but nothing comes up. It appears that those monitors or TVs were somehow just modified to work with the motel setup. You can try to use them with an external tuner such as a VCR to tune the channels to send the video signal to the TV.
What other type of connectors dod you have at the back?
Is there a way you can post a picture of the back of your TV?

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.
