Bedroom Television

Has anybody changed out the television in the bedroom. We have the BH model and just can't get my hands behind the tv. The unit does tip from the top but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to get it off.

On our 2011BH the rear TV is on a "slide on" mount. Just hold the bottom of the TV and push it up to get it off the mount.

I had to take mine off to run an HDMI cable for a dish box a couple of years ago. It was a pain to reinstall. If I remember correctly the release is on the bottom and you slide the TV up.

Just had mine off the mount last weekend. I have a 2013RB and not sure if it is the same, but there is a screw "lock" in the middle of the mount on the bottom (just behind the actual TV that you take out. You then pull the bottom of the TV forward and lift up to get the "hooks" on each side off of the rail they rest on near the top. Hope that helps.

On my 2011, there's a release handle at the bottom (center). Just squeeze & it comes off.

Thanks for all the comments. Of course my set up is nothing like any of you described. Through much frustration, trial and error success. Take a seat! After looking for all of the suggestions I found out that I had to remove the window valance to access two Allen set screws that secure the television to the wall mounted hardware. The valance is only held on with three screws but the screw on the top, #2 Robertson requires about a 6" extension, and we all have one those just hanging around.

We have a 2012 390BH60. I swapped out the rear TV the first year to a much larger unit.

To remove I think there was a release pin or lever and then lift off.

I installed a power bar into the single outlet behind the TV. Fill thee hole behind TV and reinforce. Install an articulating arm with a larger TV that will fit flick to cabinet face frame. I installed a small shelf below TV to house a new blueray player and sound bar.

The TV is locked in ticht to cabinet for travel and is pulled out and tilted when stopped.

I have it wired in to either play the same DVD as living room or the bluray in rear.
Total cost was approx 300 dollars.
