Remove tv from wall mount

My picture has blown and i want to remove the tv from THE WALL MOUNT. I do not remember attaching the tv to the wall mount with any screws or bolts. It seems that there are 4 knobs on the back of the tv that slid into slots on the wall mount, but when i try to lift tv out of slots it seems to be locked. Is there a latch or something that i need to do to remove this tv from this wall mount?

Hi. I have an old Sony Wega 32" LCD TV which I


ok it depends on the wall mount but this is the basic idea of it. make sure there is at least one other person to help you.
1. Make sure everything is off and unplugged from the tv. 2. If you have cables holding your tv to the wall remove them. 3. there should be securing screws at both sides of the arms attaching the tv to the wall. loosen them/ remove them. 4. lift and pull the tv away from the wall. have a friend help you. 5. remove the screws and bolts from the tv and the wall mount and you should be done.
If this doesn't work, find the manual for the wall mount. if you need help or additional tips put them in the comments. Thanks

Flat Panel TV WallMounting Instructions
Currenttrends Flat Panel LCD and Plasma HDTV's are making TV's thinner, lighter andmore powerful. Superior high definition viewing, affordable pricing with addedspace and energy savings are only just a few practical reasons for purchasing anew HDTV. With newer thinner designs, LCD and Plasma HDTV's are ideal for wallmounting. Wall mounting your television frees up space and adds a new elementof aesthetic appeal to your home theater. Positioning Before getting into any hardware mounting,find the best possible position to mount your television. Because wall mountingan HDTV is more of a permanent solution, careful planning is needed whenintegrating the television into your home design.
Furniture placement, overall themes, viewing angles, and the best audiopositioning are all factors that will help determine the placement of the LCDor Plasma TV.
Once you have decided the general positioning of the wall mount installation,cut out a piece of cardboard or wrapping paper in proportion the of theflat panel television. Next, approximate the placement by taping the piece ofcardboard or wrapping paper to the wall where the TV will be placed and mark itwith a pencil.
Preparing the TV Removethe stand from the television and lay the TV on its face. Locate the fourmounting holes on the back of the television and remove the bolts. Next, removethe mounting arms or mounting plate from the wall mount packaging.
To attach mounting arms, line up the arms vertically and parallel to each otherusing the mounting holes on the back of the television. Make sure that they arein perfect alignment and bolt the arms using the bolts and washer supplied withthe wall mount.
If you are using a mounting plate, simply line up the holes with the mountingholes on the television. Secure the mounting plate with the bolts and washersincluded with your wall mount.
Preparing the Wall Locatethe studs closest to the desired position using a stud finder and mark themwith a pencil. Remove the wall mount from the package. Line up the wall mountup to the studs within the center of the marked position you determinedearlier. If it is not perfectly centered, wall mounts can be adjustedhorizontally at a later time.
Using a level, line up the wall mount and mark the positioning of where hebolts will go. Drill holes into the stud about 1" deep, drill bit depends on the of bolts supplied with the wall mount. Bolt the wall mountto the wall with bolts and washers, but don't tighten down the boltscompletely. Adjust the position of the wall mount left or right to center it toyour desired position. When you are done, tighten the bolts the rest of theway. Mounting the Television Attachingthe television to the wall mount takes two people. Simply lift the televisionand hook it to the wall mount. At this point you can further adjust thepositioning horizontally to center it perfectly. Once the desired position isacquired, tighten down the screws that attach the mounting arms or plate to thewall mount.

I have a wall mount installed already but dont know how to attach the TV - model LA32R71B to it, should I have some bolts or nuts as there are 4 bolt holes in the back of the TV but I dont know the thread...


The wall mounting kit should come with all kind of screws to attach the mounting barckets to the back of the TV. Most TV uses metric M5 or M6 screws for the mounting holes on the back of TV, you should be able to get them at HD or LOWE for about 35 cents each.
My kits come with a bunch of Metric screws. Do you have the instruction sheet of the mounting kit?

No screws for wall mounting 42 inch tv


any hardware store will have them bring your tv manual with you it will tell you the spec on the screw to connect to the 4 pre existing nuts on the back of the tv as far as from the mount to wall it will be a standard lag bolt small enough to fit threw the hole and long enough to go threw the drywall and about an inch and a half of the studd 2" to 2 1/2" inch lag bolt will work

Attaching to wall mount


The 4 screws that are commnly used are short because they are ususally wide in diameter. Besides if they are too long then they might damage the boards on the TV.
