Hi
I have just bought a Sony KDL32W653 yesterday to replace my old TV. My current TV is attached to the wall with an AVF UL204 wall mount with hinged moveable arms. I cannot find a way of attaching the new TV to it and I am reluctant to change the wall mount if possible, due to both cost and damage to the wall in removing the wall mount. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could do? I didn't realise that my existing mount would not be compatible as I thought all TV's would be universal.

Looks like you need a specific mount.

Thanks for getting back to me. That is the mount that comes with the TV and once fitted the TV sits flat against the wall, but I need a mount that comes out on an arm.

Surely this must be an option?

No it's not, you can only wall mount it with the supplied stand, and only flat to a wall.

I did manage to mount one, as the shop had sold it as such (dropping me in it as usual!) - but I made special mountings for it using steel bar, and had to remove the back to fit it.

Needless to say I informed the shop that they couldn't be wall mounted, so not to sell any more on that basis - because I wouldn't be fitting it!

EDIT: You could use the supplied bracket to mount it on a piece of wood, and then bolt the wood to your arm bracket?.

I wonder if the preference for totally flat wall mounts is a safety issue or something else?

As most people (myself included) tend to wall mount TV's too high for comfort, then it would be preferable if the TV mounts allowed the Screen to be angled downwards in order to minimize reflections form lighting etc.
I've had to modify several wall mounts using wood etc in order to achieve the correct angles. Bloody annoying!

I have spoken to AVF and they now make an adaptor that allows this range of TV to be hung on existing AVF wall mounts.

All now sorted, thanks for your help.

Now that's VERY interesting

I'll have to look that up.

EDIT:

I can't find anything on their website, perhaps you could keep us informed as to your progress - I'd be interested to see how they have done it?.

Hi

I contacted the AVF directly to see if they had any suggestions on how to attach the TV. They said that this had been causing Sony Centres lots of problems. The part number is P6432 and cost 15 including delivery costs. AVF sent me a PDF of how it attaches to the existing wall mount, but I can't see any way of adding attachments in this forum. However, it seems fairly easy to fit. If you are interested in the PDF and private message me your email address, I'll send you the PDF
