How to Remove the Stand From the Sony Bravia 40-Inch

LCD, LED and plasma flat screen TVs, even the larger models, are much lighter and easier to maneuver than their previous rear projection flat screen counterparts. They can be displayed on thin stands or mounted on a wall, and it is easy to remove them from the stands for wall mounting if you change your mind on where the set will be placed. However, even with the lighter weights involved when you're removing the television from the stand, especially with larger televisions, it is a good idea to have someone help you to avoid accidentally breaking the set.

Removing the stand from your Bravia can require two people.

Step

Remove the stand cover from the TV stand. Not all televisions will have a cover.

Step

Look at the screws visible on either side of the stand where it is connected to the TV. Select the correct screw driver for the screw heads since it differs on Bravia models.

Step

Hold the TV steady while another person unscrews the stand. There should be four screws, two on each side of the stand which attach the stand to the back of the TV. Hold the TV securely so it does not fall when the screws are removed. If you do not have someone to help you, brace the set firmly so it doesn't fall when you take the screws out.

Step

Lift the TV straight up to remove it from the stand.
