There are 3 screws on each side.
There are the 2 that you see going into the post from the stand and there is 1 that is screwed into the back of the TV.
The TV will lift straight up off the stand with NO effort when you remove the 6 screws BUT I would recommend some help to hang onto to it just in case.
You will of course need someone to help hang the TV.
PM me for ANY details you want because if you look back a page or two, you will see that I have wall mounted mine and know what to look out for (like making sure ALL cables are connected first)
Sorry, I was in a hurry because I had an Ebay auction for my now sold DLP which was ending while I was typing.
I have enclosed a picture of the mounting post.
The 2 holes (the ones with no screws) are seen below the TV itself.
The one with the screw in it is up inside the TV and can be a bit confusing because their are several screws around it.
With this picture, it shuld be clear as to how to remove the stand.
Here was how I installed the TV:
What we did was slide the TV stand that this TV was sitting on out away from the wall.
Then we installed the Omnimount adjustable mount on the wall as well as the backing plates on the TV.
The longest part of the job was finding the EXACT center of the wall stub (even with an ultrasonic stud finder).
Then we pushed the TV stand really close to the wall, took out the 6 screws on the base ,prayed and then using the hand holds behind the TV, lifted it straight up and onto the Wall Mount.
You can get to the power socket and the DVI connection but other than that, I would have to take the TV off the wall to fiddle with the cables so get that right first.
The TV is 34" off the floor and today I am going to mount the center speaker ABOVE the TV.
I do want to raise the TV about 3 inches more which can easliy be done with the mount I used.
Final comment - the Omnimount comes with 4 screws to bolt the back plates to the TV.
However, the TV actually has 6 mounting holes and that bugged me because those bolts are not really very big anyway.
So I bought 2 extra bolts so the TV is attached with 6 bolts now.
