Tv removal

I've got a rockwood 8272s, signature ultralite with a Dynex TV mounted on the wall viewable from the sofa. TV reception was poor and I wanted to check the coax between the TV and antenna power supply (assembly with the green led, several coax cables, switch, located below TV) I can't figure out how the wall mount releases, I've tried; griping the TV firmly on both sides and pushing it toward the wall up and down and inserting a screwdriver into the slide from the top and twisting while lifting the TV up. I've looked at the wall mount with a flash lite and mirror from top, sides and bottom, I think it is supposed to slide out from the top. I've looked at previous threads. Any ideas?
BTW-- problem turned out to be the coax between the power supply and the antenna, I cut the cable below the oven, shorted one end and measured open on the other end with a multimeter. I wanted to use the original cable as a fish wire to pull a replacement and splice where I had cut but where the original goes under the floor it's stuck. I ended up running the replacement cable from the power supply, up the inside wall near the slid out, through the ceiling, across the roof to the antenna. It's sloppy looking but it works. I'm disappointed that the manufacture did not allow replacement cables to be fished in the original conduits.
thanks for any help
Bob

I have a Rockwood 8306SS signature ultra light. On the top of the TV there is a "L" bracket that is screwed into the wall and swings up to remove TV and when it is down, it keeps the TV bracket from coming off the wall bracket. Once the "L" bracket is up, you can lift the TV straight up and remove. Not sure if yours is the same set up tho.
I also had bad reception and tried an antenna amplifier without much success. The original TV was a Olevia brand, I tried a name brand (LG I believe) and reception was greatly improved. Electronic geek I know said tuners are different and the cheaper TV did not have a good tuner. Good luck!

Mine is held down with a small cable....needed to smack bottom of tv to get it to slide up and out as it's settled in from traveling...used the palms to do this....if yours has a 90 degree connection behind tv, it could be a problem also
