Anyone know how to demount the Magnavox bedroom tv in a 2013 38gk so you can get to back and fix the connections ? and attach a surround and dvd player ?

I can lift it up, but not enough clearance to pull out ...

thanks !


And while we are at it


What about the LG 55" in the living room ?

I took mine out once. I think I just lifted straight up and disengaged the mount. I'm not at mine right now or I would check again.
The living room is a different story. On mine I needed a long Allen wrench to loosen two bolts at the bottom of the mount behind the tv. I only had a short multi set and it took forever. Sorry I forgot what size. Edited by: Willranless

mine lifts up like you said, but it does take a little work to get it to clear.

And it's a little tricky to get the mount to reengage when you put it back.

Yup it lifts straight up, but you may need to push in at the top of the tv so you can clear the front of the tv while lifting. One of the first things I did on my RW 1.5 years ago was to replace the bedroom tv wall hanger with a swing out arm which I purchased at Wallmart. I used part of the original bedroom tv mount (the part that slides into the tv bracket) and attached it to another swing out arm in the basement. I can now pull out the bedroom tv, slide it off and take it out to the basement and slide it onto the swing out arm for viewing outside.

Thanks - tried again later but still couldn't get it to release...
I have to get it going to fix the incompetence of the dealer ....

they disconnected and unplugged the dvd in the LR to put in the wrong sat dish !!!!

and in the bedroom the antenna now runs thru the sat !!!

shouldn't I have two coax connections ? one for ant and one for sat ?
isn't that the way it's supposed to come from the factory ?
grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

My original factory bracket was bent up and chewed up. It looked like someone had rough cut it and possibly took a file to it. I do remember it coming off hard. My new bracket has a flat metal piece that clips in the bracket to prevent it from accidentally pulling loose. Yes you should have a cable for satellite and one for the antenna.

Can you lift the TV straight up? Mine just lifts straight up and then tilt out at the bottom to remove the TV. It is mounted in a V-shaped bracket. Not sure about the cable config for satellite since I don't use that.

To remove the 55" use a 1/4"(I think) allen head socket on a 9" extention. Come up from the bottom and loosen the set screws enough to tilt the TV up from the bottom and lift it up off the top mounts. Careful, it's heavy.
There is a TV wiring diagram available from Ron Howard at RW.
