    swapping out the elevator TV from 2670MK

    Wondering if anyone has removed and replaced the stock TCL (Non-Smart) TV with a smart tv. We're looking at swapping with a 43" Samsung TV. I know I will need to slightly modify the counter hole. But I'm wondering how other have removed the old tv?

    It looks like the easiest way would be to loosen one screw on each side which appears to be something of a hinge point, that the TV w/mount attaches to the elevator. Unfortunate some Moose at initial install stripped out the heads of the fasteners. I can probably use an easy out to get the R/H fastener out, but the L/H side is next to the wall and will be bit more difficult to get out or even loosen.

    Has anyone done this upgrade? What did you do and how did you do it?

    Thanks!

    I've removed it and put it back to do some wiring and you are right it sort of hangs from the screws on each side and it slides up if I recall correctly.

    If you look close at the photo of the lower rear right hand screw on the mount you can see that just loosening the screws will allow the TV to lift up and off the televator. At least on my rig. All you need to do is loosen them. they don't have to be removed.

    You probably want to use 2 people. One can lift the TV but it is easier with 2 people. Once lifted off the one person can place it face down on the counter while the other person disconnects the wires.

    Put the removed mount from the old TV on the new TV and reinstall.

    You'll want to take some measurements of where the mount is on the old TV so you can replace the mount on the new TV in the same location (distance from top and bottom of the TV).

    Hope some of this helps....

    Televator

    Thanks Traveldawg!

    Thats what I was thinking!! My problem has been loosening the two screws. They look like an Allen head, but I can't find a key that fits it correctly, all I have are either too small or too large??
