Getting to back of TV

Have new Rockwood 8289 5th wheel. Want to hook up HDMI cable back of TV. Cannot get to back of TV or take it off wall. Anybody know the trick to take off tv from wall or how to hook up a HDMI cable. Thanks, Dave

If it is the 32" Toshiba TV, you simply grab it on each side or bottom with one hand and one on the top, lift up, you may have to wiggle it as you lift up. It should come out of the mount.

When you get it off the bracket, you are limited to where you can put it down because of all of the wires that are hooked to the TV. You will more than likely have to set it on the TV right side on the floor. Have a towel handy to set it on.

I lubricated the slide mount knobs on the back of the TV to make it easy to remove and reinstall.

You will more than likely need a HDMI cable with a 90 fitting for the back of the TV.

Thanks for the suggestions. Believe me I tried to lift it up. Would not budge. Afraid I would break something. This why I was asking if there was a trick to it. I will just wiggle it till it comes off. Thanks for the heads up on lubricating the brackets and the 90 degree cord.
