The one year old 65ZT60 TV I purchased has some burn-in artifacts (a logo and a 1cm smudge streak running horizontally across the 1/5th horizontal) when I was doing that screen swipe.. These are not prominent but light. Does anyone know if these artifacts go away over time or are they permanent?.
The mounting place that sticks on the wall is attached to a stud on one side only. On the other side, the installer (of a previous TV set) used drywall anchors. I am not happy with this.
I am thinking of reinforcing the mount setup by bolting (lag bolts) two 4X4 over the drywall (running between two vertical studs behind the drywall) to which I could attach the mounting plate. It will also give me the depth necessary as the TV is quite big and is interfering with the drywall pit above the fireplace.
My questions are:
How do I fasten the 4X4 to the studs behind the drywall above the fireplace properly?
How many lag bolts to use? etc. I am looking for a simple design spec. It is crucial that it is done right as the TV is almost 100lbs and a failure could be catastrophic
