Heya all.

I have just been gifted a Samsung 32' TV UA32C6200UM but unfortunately it had been wall mounted and doesn't come with the base. 

I am renting and am unable to wall mount the TV myself, so started a search to buy a replacement base.

I contacted Samsung and was quoted the parts I need:

 

bn96-13914a  $112.00 +gst

 

bn96-13392b  $10.50 +gst


So the question is; Must I pay out the $140 and wait for it to be imported to NZ, or is there some alternative?

Is there a second hand parts site? Somewhere where damaged TV are sent that may have the parts I need for reduced cost?

Or is there a universal base or base for another Samsung that would work? Even some other non-wall mounted version? The Samsung service centre ran the line that each TV base was specifically created for each TV type and size, but I don't care about what it looks like, just that its safe and secure.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Tony

Forgot to mention, whatever you decide to get, make sure the 'holes' on the mounting plate match and also make sure the bracket can support the weight i.e. check the weight rating and/or panel maximum size.

Thanks for the quick reply Goosey.

That first base looks perfect, but at $300... thinking it may be better to get the 'real' version.

I agree the second one looks like its asking for trouble and like you say isn't for 32' monitors.

Hmmm. Food for thought.

Cheers

I have a F6300 hanging on my wall, and the base is in the garage (still in plastic)
Measure the mounting holes on your TV and I'll measure the stand, and if they are they same, I can look at selling at a decent price.


thus is the stand for my TV

I say the F6300 and the C6200 are completely different. Worth a look though.

I may have a mount for a B or C series 37" somewhere at home (it may have been tidied up though...) I think TV is LA37B450 (37" LCD, not LED)? If you want to do the research and see if the bases are the same/similar enough I'm happy to climb into the roof to have a look...

Yea, thought it might be, but google image search looked similar,
Although, the weight of the older TV may be too much,

Thanks for the replies all, appreciate the effort.

As to whether I can work out they are compatible... if we were talking about programming windows 8 or building a pc, I'd nod and off I go.

However, as soon as I have to get out a measuring tape and a screwdriver... well lets just say I'm the guy who ran over the cord on an electric lawnmower (actually happened).

So, If you bear with a terrible fix it noob, lets see...

The measurement of the base black guide is 16 cm long, but can't seem to be able to find anywhere that shows the dimensions for your two models.

@ JohnnyCam: The picture you linked kinda looked the same.... I phoned Samsung and they said its not compatible. But still not sure if that means, not advisable or are actually different.

@Trig42: Looks good again... will ring about that version tomorrow.

As to weight: According to the manuals my 32 inch is 8.5kgs, and the 37 inch is 12 kgs, so weight shouldn't be a problem.

It seems as though they deliberately make them different so that they aren't compatible. Very annoying design.

You've given me another problem to solve :)


Thanks for all your help so far.


edit: Actually the question should be whether the silver base has the same fitting to the black plastic guide. I mean I can get the $15 guide for my specific TV if it can attach the the silver 4 prong stand of another model.
