Remove pedistal base from 24h898 aoc envision tv


You need to remove the cover that hides the 4 screws that hold the stand to the monitor. There are 3 pieces to the pedestal base. The base plate, the pedestal, and the screw cover. To remove the screw cover, look on the back where the pedestal attaches to the monitor. There is a cover just above the pedestal. Pinch the top left and top right sides (about one inch from edge) to unclip the cover. Remove the 4 silver screws (2 on each tab) and put them in a ziploc bag to avoid losing them. Tape them to the pedestal/base and cover.

I have a 42 in. Vizio Galleria and need to remove table top stand so I can wall mount. How do I remove base stand?


1. Unplug all of the cables and cords from your GV42L FHDTV10A.
2. Place the GV42L FHDTV10A face down on a soft and flat surface (blanket, foam, cloth, etc) to prevent any damage to the TV.
3. Pull the stand cover off by squeezing the sides to release the retaining plastic tabs.
(This is probably the trickiest part to find this, just feel around and don't be too rough with the plastic)
4. Remove the four (4) screws (screw's specs: M4, 0.7 Pitch, 15mm long) so that the stand base can be removed.
5. Gently remove the stand base
6. Now, the GV42L FHDTV10A can fit securely to a mount (sold separately) by utilizing the mounting holes in the center of the back panel of the TV. Please make sure to read the instructions of your specific mount to properly hang the GV42L FHDTV10A

Has no mounting screws what type do they take or are they standard


Most of these tv's use the 1/4-20 machine screw, for example, has 20 threads per inch and a 1/4 inch diameter. I would recommend that you stick a piece of wire into the screw hole to determine the length that you need and start with this size screw. If it fits nicele and snugs down you will know you have the correct size.

Removing the base of flat panel tv


You don't have to mess around with the screws on the bottom of the base.

There are 4 screws on the back of the Toshiba that are in line with the wall mounting screw holes.

Remove the 4 screws and the base falls off.

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 TAKE OUT THE STAND


Usually it is in the owners manual, but if not, try removing the screws on the back bottom of the base. Just lay that LCD on a flat surface like a bed and then you should be able to see how to remove the base. usually 4 screws. I haven't seen this exact model though. Good luck. Jay

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!
