Hi Team


 


So I want to mount my tv on the wall. according to the user manual it should have come with the brackets but it didn't 


when I called sony they gave me the number a company called need a part and they told me that they don't sell mounts for sony tvs.


They told me to try the place of purchase so I called now leeming and gave them my model number and they told me the stand for my tv also doubles as it's wall mount!


which I find hard to believe and don't see how it could they told me if I go into there store they will show me how. Sony could not tell me weather it would be a universal mount but I would assume it would be?


My tv is Sony KDL40-W600B 


 


Thanks

It'll probably take a universal mount. I got mine from Bunnings or Miter Ten. Drill into the stud. I doubt any TV comes with a proper wall mount.

 

When we had a room rebuilt the area that might have a TV one day has a big piece of plywood where the TV might go, that way you can drill into it anywhere. Also lets you run cables up inside the wall.

If you have a Jaycar nearby they will have a suitable bracket. I’ve done several, they are pretty easy. Use a stud finder if you have one, drill pilot holes, use the big lag bolts to secure into studs. I’ve checked mine by hanging off the wall plate by my fingertips. Good enough for my 60inch! Jaycar also sell white square conduit that you put on the wall and clip on the cover, hides cables away with minimal work.

Owned this exact tv 3-4 years ago

Does not come with wall mount and stand doesn't act as wall mount.


A cheap wall mount from the warehouse or wherever will work no worries

page 34 of the manual shows what the kit looks like and it should have came with the TV. If it was purchased new from from a retail store im surprised it didn't have it.

 

 

 

though looking at it i would suspect any VESA mount would work

The stand on Sony Tv's have been doubling as the bracket for years now.

 

A standard wall mount will not work unless you can find 75Ml spacers, so they are probably correct.

 

They are also a PIA, they are poorly designed and hard to get them to stay level.

PB Tech also stock wall mount brackets. I got this one which I'm really pleased with. It came with all the needed fixings, including screws to attach to the wall. The hardest part was finding the stud in the wall.

So the answer is it is probably not possible?

I feel the answer is we are not sure or have differing opinions. From the manual for this model under accessories Wall Mount Bracket (adaptor). If you are really doubting it look for wall mounts then go to the shop with the TV and get them to show you how to connect it.

Taking the TV into the store is too much effort

Sony said this is the wall mount I need Suwl450

 

They said they are unable to answer if the TV supports a universal mount as they don't support it .


Banana?

Pretty sure a universal mount will work fine.

 

The TV will have screw holes on the back, the universal bracket will have a selection of bolts/screws that will fit in. You just want to make sure the bracket will fit onto the back of the TV, and that the screws do not screw in too far (they should have stops in the bottom of the screw holes on the TVs, but you do not want to screw in too far and end up cracking the back of the panel.

 

The challenge then is to affix the other part of the bracket to the wall - so long as you can find a stud/nog it won't be an issue, otherwise you will have to use Gib Fixings (which are fine for one end of the bracket, but you really want at least part of it screwed into something solid).

 

Any store will sell universal brackets - pick one and go.

It seems like maybe too much in the hard basket?

 

So I need any mount that say's it will work for 40'' tvs?

 

Should I get a cheap one or is it better to get a more expensive one? I don't want the telly to fall off the wall

 

Sorry it's round the wrong way I corrected it before I uploaded it but it seems to have uploaded this way.

 

Here's a pic of the back on the tv showing the holes for mounts

That’s an older model, a standard wall mount will do.
Just be aware of the optical and Ethernet plugs, you either need 90 * adaptors or a bracket that sits out more from the wall
