Removing the stand from a flat panel TV

I have an Insignia 42" flat panel plasma TV ( NS-PDP42 ) that I want to wall mount. How do I remove the base, which folds into 2 pieces, but does not seem to want to let go of the TV. The owners manual has no instructions for removing the base, and my removing a few obvious screws had no effect. I'm sure I'm missing something simple but any help would be appreciated.

None of these TVs have any problem removing the stand.

Stands for 32'' and larger TVs plug into the TV's body and are attached by 4 to 8 bolts that go through the cover, then through the plugged-in part of the stand and attach to the internal frame.

In most cases the bolts are 4 - one for each ray of the fork that goes into the TV.

Since bolts for the frame are metal bolts and bolts for the plastic back cover are usually wood-type screws (sharp on the top, wider thread) you can visually tell the one for the stand from the rest.

Look right above the stand for four, six or eight symettrically placed heads that are different from the ones you see on the corners.

Once you unscrew those the stand should feel more flexible and you can simply pull it back.

In order to do all that you have to have the TV laying on its face or back.

Watch out if it's heavy - you may need to support it towards the end of the operation. It's unlikely for it to get damaged if it falls down, but you still don't want to try your chances.

Giving it a little lift also helps unscrew the last bolts...otherwise all the force of the TV is pressing against it...and that makes it harder to unscrew.

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

Tv stand screws


Check the kitchen drawer next to the fridge for the screws !!

When you get new screws, use lengths 1/2".. any longer and you might hit something inside.

Don't know why this is posted under IS-LCDTV26.. I would pull a screw from my 26" and measure it, but it's most likely different than your 42"

Remove base of Insignia ns-ltdvd26-09 lcd tv for wall mounting


Open up the panel on the back of the TV which covers the various input connections. At the bottom of the area previously covered, there are 8 screws (two rows of four screws). Remove them, and the entire stand should now slide right out of the TV. You can then replace the screws back in their holes, so you don't lose them. You do not need to disassemble the stand to do this.
