Out of the box, your Samsung TV will not be ready to watch. You first need to set up and connect the TV stand before you can do anything else. Connecting the TV stand to the TV is a straight-forward process that only takes a couple of minutes and does not require any technical know-how. Save yourself money and take a pass on the professional TV installers. You can do this yourself.


Step 1

Place the guide stand over the centerpiece of the stand, then align the screw holes together. The centerpiece of the TV stand protrudes upward about an inch and has a circular tube base with a flat square head at the top. Thread the screws through the holes of the guide stand into the stand base and tighten with a Phillips screwdriver. The guide stand and stand base are now united.

Step 2

Look at the stand to differentiate the front from the back. The front of the stand protrudes forward into an "L" pattern, while the back of the stand is flat. Feel the bottom of the TV and locate the stand hole. Lift the TV over the stand and carefully lower it so the top of the stand goes into the stand hole at the bottom of the TV. Have a friend help you guide the TV stand into the hole while you lower it.


Step 3

Insert the screws through the holes at the base of the TV into the TV stand. Tighten the screws with a Phillips screwdriver. The screws keep the TV stand securely in place. Stand the TV up so the stand supports the weight of the TV.
