Don't rely on manual

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just so you won't be a frustrated as I was last night, I am posting this information about removing the stand from the Toshiba Regza to allow for wall mounting. Do not go by what the manual says! I spent an enormous amount of time trying to remove the "jack cover" as stated in the manual. I even called Toshiba and they told me it should just pop off when you squeeze the sides. NOT TRUE! You actually have to remove all of the screws around the perimeter of the stand - even the hex screws. Once you remove these, the base slides out! Don't remove the entire back as I saw posted on the internet somewhere.

I hope this helps someone out there struggling to mount their Regza!

Yes. You must have had someone set yours up for you? Just remove the 5 socket head cap screws (using an Allen wrench), and it comes right off.

Thank you very much I was about to take the whole back of the TV off!

I seem to have misplaced the screws for my stand. Does anyone have the screw size measurements on the two types required for the stand?

I know this is an old thread but I found it in a search. I am having a problem removing my stand on my new Toshiba 52HL167. The manual says the stupid thing about a jack cover that doesn't exist. It looks like there are six bolts of some sort holding it on but I have tried every size allen wrench I can get my hands on in those holes to no avail. Anyone have any ideas?

I just did a search and came across this thread. Headed down the path described above but I think they've changed the base design since the original postings. Turns out that on mine (Regza, 46") there are four screws near the bottom of the chassis on the backside that hold the base on. Two vertical on each side of the stand. Remove those 4 screws and the base slides right off. Found the procedure after thumbing through the manual 5 times, close to totally frustrated. Hope this helps someone.

I lost the hex head bolts that attach the stand to the TV, does anyone know what size these are? I tried calling Toshiba, their parts manufacturers, and googling it with no results...anyone??

I was scratching my head trying to figure this one out. I watched the stupid you tube instructional which is not a 42 Regza, and then realized I had missed the instructions in the manual. They are on page 5 at the bottom. The 5 screws around the perimeter of the base are the only screws you need to remove. Not the ones with the arrows next to them. Don't listen to the part about the "jack cover", they don't have one, whoever wrote that in the manual is a "jack ass".

Good luck Stoners!

Thank you so much for the guidance! Your instructions were bang on! My dad and I were trying to pry it from the TV using a screwdriver and hammer (this was a last resort)! luckily we found your post and it's made life ten times easier. We would've spent another two hours trying to the base off had it not been your good advice.
Thank you very much.

Really helpful thank you, the base stand just drops once these 5 are removed with an Allen key....as advice says avoid the screws wi the arrows.
