12 inches is the minimum for mounting the unit to the wall. I mounted a 42 inch LCD using a Sanus tilt (non-swivel) mount from Best Buy. We mounted it on wooden beams exactly 12 inches apart. Works great!

What is the remote learning code for my 32" TV


Hello,

Mounting an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV on the wall may seem a bit overwhelming at first; but it's not that difficult. With a few simple tools, a proper mounting kit and a helper, the job will be a breeze. With a little bit of patience and an hour or two, your LCD TV will look great. Follow these steps to learn how to mount an LCD TV on the wall.

Things You'll Need:
LCD TV
Mounting kit
Tools
Step 1
Find the best spot on the wall to mount the LCD screen. Think about how much room you may want on that wall, especially if you plan on mounting speakers, too. You could hang a poster or picture relative to the size of the television on the wall to see if you like the placement.

Step 2
Pick a mounting kit. You can purchase mounting kits online (see Resources below) along with many other sites. Look to make sure the kit and TV are VESA compatible so that you have standard measurements and quick, easy attachment during the mounting process.

Step 3
You may already have tools needed to mount the TV. You'll need a set of screwdrivers, a socket set, a saw capable of cutting into drywall, a drill and a measuring tape. Having a stud finder with a built-in level is also great to pinpoint the exact location of the stud. The stud finder will be useful if you'll be running wires through the wall.

Step 4
Get the location for the TV picked out. Check near the bottom of the wall to see if the area you plan on using to run the wires is free of obstructions. Using the stud finder for this will make it easy.

Step 5
Find the studs. You should use at least one stud when mounting the LCD screen to make sure that the mounting bolts are driven into something solid that will support the weight of the TV and the mounting bracket. Using two studs is ideal for mounting larger TV's, those with screens larger than 37 inches. Use a pencil to mark the drill holes for the anchors and stud location.

Step 6
Secure the mounting rails to the back of the LCD screen. Double check them for proper fit. Make sure that they're hidden behind the body of the television for a finished look.

Step 7
Cut the hole for the wires to come through by using a drywall saw. The easiest way is to pull them out at the electrical box. This avoids having to go into the basement, closet or otherwise. You can purchase a wall box at your local home improvement store to place in the exit hole of the wires.

Step 8
Drill the holes for the bolt anchors in the locations that you measured and marked previously. Place the bolt anchors into the holes and tap them in with a hammer.

Step 9
Secure the wall mount to the wall. You'll need a socket wrench to ensure that the mounting bolts get snugged down tightly to the anchors. Use a level to make sure you've done an even job.

Step 10
Grab a friend or family member to help you lift the LCD screen onto the mount. Make sure it's locked down tightly and the screen is set to go.

Hope this helps and Good luck

HI , I'm looking for the size of the mounting bolts that would be required to mount a 32 inch Sony LCD TV.


If you are talking about the mounting screws that go into the back of the television to mount a VESA sized wall bracket, then it's most likely 5mm screws. The length of the screws could differ, depending on the bracket you are attaching, but usually 12mm or 16mm can be used. just make sure that the screws are long enough to thread into the TV completely, but not too long, or they may damage internal components.

If you are talking about the Lag screws needed to mount the bracket to the wall, then use 3/8" width lag screws 2 1/2" to 3 1/2" long, depending on how deep you have to go before hitting the wood stud.

I have an ULPT-X Omni Mount that I will be using with a Samsung 65" LED. How do I mount the ULPT-X to make sure that the exact center of the TV will be in the center of the wall space it will be hung on. ...


What do you mean by centered on the top and bottom? It doesn't need to be centered in the exact part of the wall for the tv. it all depends on what your viewing height is for where you want the tv vertically. Once you figure that out you mount it where you want it for your personal viewing preference.
Thank you,

What wall bracket do i need for my wharfdale 42'' plasma tv, model number w42s40pe


Check for 3 things, 1 location on wall ( you need to attach it on a wooden stud in the wall, 2 weight and size ( you want a mount that usually sized for 40" to 48" or 50" inches which will accomodate for the weight, 3 One that Tilts ( get one that will at least tilt up and down, due to the reflection of any lights or sunlight. also because you may need to adjust it so that you can see it from a seated position.. other than that any brand will do, more you pay the better (and easier) they are to put up... Good luck

Try moving a medium powered magnet (not one for picking up heavy objects and not a refrigerator holding one) over the distorted area. If that doesn't work, try a more powerful one. This worked for my Toshiba LCD. Good luck!
