Columbus bedroom TV removal

Trying to take the TV that came from the factory in the bedroom off the bracket. Anyone done this? Felt around for a release but can't find one. Seems we have a bad connection from the TV to the soundbar and I want to fix that. Not going to take to the dealer for it as it should be very simple once I can get it off the wall.

If your TV is on an articulating mount that pulls out and pivots from the storage position like mine do, the base plate has a couple keystone slots on it. A sharp rap on the arm at the intersection of the arm and plate will make it move upward about an inch and you can remove the TV and arm together

Thanks Jeff but ours does not come out. It is anchored to the wall and has a little bit of movement turning it like a clock. Nothing in or out though.

Mine you just pull strait up and it comes off the bracket. 4 round tabs just side down into slots.

Thanks I'll try that this weekend when I get it home again. Might have to push harder than I was trying before. DW would NOT be happy if I tear it off the wall.

I lift mine up and it comes out of the bracket. Pretty simple in ours.

I have a Columbus 320RS and mine had a release handle on each side of the mount. After activating both of those handles the TV could be lifted up off the mount. My suspicion is that they don't use the same mount on all units manufactured over a period of time. I had to use a dental mirror and take some pictures with my iPhone just to find the release handles since I could not get into a position where I could actually see the mount behind the TV. DW and I have very little use for a TV in the bedroom of the Columbus so I am looking for creative ways to use that space on the wall.

Just and update so if anyone else has the same question. I had to lift up on the TV and it comes right out as a few said. Thanks for all the input.
