Removing front TV?
« on: October 05, 2017, 12:50:33 am »
Can anyone tell me how to remove the front TV in a 2552?  I thought I had seen a thread on here that addressed this, but I can't seem to find it now.  I have a TV that has lost it's mind.....it keeps turning its self off and on!  I'm looking to replace it and would appreciate any suggestion as to brand or anything else.  Thanks.

On mine I have to go into the cabinets on the sides of the TV. Then I found three screws on the in side by the TV. In the right cabinet they were on the left side, pointing toward the TV. In the right side cabinet on the left side. I removed the screws and the TV  just drops out. It helps to have someone to hold the TV but you can do it yourself if you are ready to hold the TV when you remove the last screw. Good luck.

Same on my 2015 model 2551, 6 screws.  3 each side in the front cabinets.  They're about 4" long deck/drywall type screws.

Marcia,

We ordered our unit without a TV and bought a Visio at Walmart.  It is light weight and the speakers are in front and not behind or on the bottom of the TV.  It has served us very well for the past 6 years.

If you remove the screws, how does that release the TV?  Does it release the whole wall or are they screwed into the bracket that holds the TV?   Is the TV mounted to a bracket?
 Thanks for the info, so far.

The six screws screw right into the TV case itself.  Once those screws are out there is absolutely nothing that holds the unit in the wall so as suggested be ready to catch that baby or you will lose it to the floor quickly.  The TV is not heavy it just surprises you!   Good luck, not a big job at all.

So, what you are saying is there is no bracket that you mount the TV to........that the screws go directly into the TV?  Would you have to mount a bracket to put the new TV on?  Is there a hole in the wall that the back of the TV goes into?  What would you mount the new TV to?  Thanks

It has been a while (several years) since I have been in the TV business as it pertains tp PC's but as I recall long sheet rock screws merely screw into the side of the Samsung set, no brackets nothing.   While I had the set out I took the opportunity to put additional insulation in.  If your new set is a different brand I would be careful where the screws screw in...best of luck.  RAG

About a month ago I removed the TV in my 2012 3100 to plug in a satellite tuner. On each side of the back of the TV is a beveled wooden block attached to the TV. I assume this was applied at the factory. I don't remember how it was applied. Glue or screws maybe. Open the cabinet on each  side of the TV and you will find 3 screws on each side that screw into the wooden blocks attached to the TV. As mentioned by many before me, be ready to catch that TV!
