It should be fine to mount your t.v. above your mantel. As flat screen t.v.s become more popular more and more people have started mounting their t.v.s over the fireplace.

Can you give me some advice on, how to mount a 46in tv above my non working fireplace mantle?


You would have to use a mounting bracket specifically designed for the type of installation you describe and it certainly would have to be fastened into the studs behind the sheetrock. A TV of that size will be heavy to lift and install in the bracket

WILL BE BUYING LCD TV IN NEAR FUTURE, BUT NEED TO MOUNT IN ON WALL WITH FIREPLACE, SEVERAL FEET ABOVE EYE LEVEL. CAN DO?


Absolutly, I have wall mounted a few dozen above fireplaces in the past 5 years; I can even send you over some pictures and suggestions come time for the install.

What is the wall material? Brick mantel or drywall with wood studs?

Although a TV looks attractive about a fireplace you have to consider that it is fatiguing to watch from such a high height. The optimal average height for a TV is 45" to centre (depending on furniture). If you exceed that by a few feet watching a lot of TV is awkward.

The advantage is it combines the focal point of the room, and instead of having a picture about a fire place, your TV becomes the work of art and can be used as a digital picture frame.

Can I wall mount my Tv above a gas fire?


If your talking about enclosed fireplace with the glass front and the vents from it are facing down. Then yes you can use your judgment though. Just make sure their is enough space between the tv, and the fireplace so their isn't direct heat blowing on the tv. A good 4-5 feet above the fire place or more would be fine.

I want to mount my 42" LCD TV above the fireplace mantle. Will the heat from the fireplace damage the TV. How far should it be recessed?


it's not a good idea to mount any tv above a fireplace mantle. Anytype of excessive heat added to the tv besides what it generates itself can cause distortion and loss of use in the tv by saudering or melting of connections that you cant see. If in doubt, is there a place where youve seen a tv mounted above the fireplace mantle, and ask them about any issues they may have come across, or are they also restricted to keeping the fire very low.

Sony bravia LCD KDL52 TV: blurred picture with color bands


It is most likely the TCON board (located at the top right against the LCD panel). When these boards have problems, they can act up when cold or warmed up.

You will want to check with any extended warranty company you might have, or Sony's part website for the availability of the TCON board.

The problem here is, sometimes those TCONs are not made available separately and need to be replaced with the screen.

If you have to replace the panel, buy a new tv. You'll save yourself a costly repair.

I'm trying to hang my flatscreen tv above fireplace and need help


Wendy,
When attaching your wall mount to the brick you should use a metal lag shield designed for masonry. These can be found at the local hardware store but i would carry the mounting bracket with you so that you can ensure that you get the appropriate size of fastener that will pass through the bracket. As far as the heat goes, it really depends on the amount of heat the system will be subject to. Some fireplaces are more for decoration and produce very little heat above the mantle area. Others that have blowers on them or are left with the doors open genrate considerable heat.
I would not advise the mounting of the tv above the fireplace in my professional opinion. The cooler you can keep electronics - to a point- will greatly increase the service life of the appliance.I hope this is of assistance to you and thanks for using Fix Ya. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

46 sony bravia Lcd tv on a articulating wall mount Whats a Good hight floor to bottom of the tv


The ideal height would be between 38" and 42". with your stand being 42" high I would say 45" would be fine. Anything over 50" off the floor will put strain on your neck and give you constant headaches after watching for extended periods of time.

Distance over gas fireplace


Both LCD TVs and plasma TVs get hot, though plasma TVs tend to be a bit hotter in my experience. Also, plasma TVs are going out of fashion.

A lot will depend on the construction of your fireplace. If it's brick it should insulate fairly well.

Either way, I would recommend a mounting solution that does not put the back of the TV flush with the wall. Get one that tilts. I would avoid the "arm" style ones as that will put additional strain on the mounting.

Remember to think about how you want to run your power and video cabling as well!

Just a consumer quesstion.


Heat rises and smoke has particulate matter in it. And heat is the enemy of electronics. So personally, I would not mount any expensive TV over a fireplace. However, if you have nice glass doors covering your fireplace opening, good updraft in your fireplace, and a large mantel that projects out over the opening, you will probably get reasonable life out of your LCD TV.

Loss of the color Red....Possibley others on my plasma


If you are lucky, it could be an open resistor or defective IC. Otherwise, I see a new TV in your future as the Plasma display would cost nearly $5500 for the part alone. If the fireplace is used much, I would not mount a TV above it, especially a plasma set which generates a lot of heat all by itself. If the fireplace is only used occasionally and you want to put the replacement set in the same spot, then I would consider a LCD model instead.
