The mount may be made like this. A wedge shaped slotted bracket.



Use a small mirror to check.

If so, grab the TV firmly on both sides, wiggle it as you're pulling straight up.

That is how the tv in the bedroom is mounted and it was easily able to get it off the wall .. but this darn toshiba is a bear.... i have tried every which way to get it off.. i am thinking it may have some latch to release that i just cant get my big meat hooks too.

If it is like the Toshiba in our 2010 8315BSS, near the bottom of the TV there is a small latch. You need to reach behind the TV, release the latch by pulling towards you and lift (slide) the TV upwards.
Good Luck.

oh ya, on ours they forgot to plug it in. I had to lift up and then go to the left to get it off the bracket. putting it back on was fun.

Unhappy

Well i have no latch that i can find.. i assume you get to it from the bottom of the tv somewhere near the center?? I have tried the lift up and slide left and right also .. no go. I can see a silver bracket behind the tv with what looks like some plastic slide knob of some type. Any other ideas??

thanks

Same TV, but no latch, and no V-style bracket as offerred earlier in the thread. Mine literally just lifts up and off. The bracket set has simple "L" bends on the top and bottom that mate and hopefully hold the TV in place through the jostling of travel. There's a small "safety cable", but IMHO that won't protect the TV if it dislodges.

I may have to investigate something more secure, for peace of mind if nothing else.

I have a 2011 8281SS and my tv has knobs on the tv mount and a bracket on the wall, I was able to remove mine by lifting straight up and pulling out. It was hard to re-install as you can't see the holes. Mine does get tight but it has too or it would come out while traveling.

Did it feel like you were breaking the mount off the wall when you were lifting up and pulling out? i have tried lifting what i would think is excessively and pulling but this thing is not budging.. maybe i am just to scared and need to give it a bit more umphh???
