The Toshiba 37LX96 is a 37-inch, flat-panel, high definition liquid crystal display (LCD) television with a built-in digital videodisc (DVD) player. Flat-panel (or flat-screen) televisions can sit on a TV stand using the attached base, or the TV may be mounted on a wall if the base is removable. The Toshiba 37LX96 comes with a removable base stand.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn off and unplug your Toshiba 37LX96 TV.

  2. 2

    Disconnect any additional electronics that may be attached to your TV.

  3. 3

    Place the TV face down on the floor. If you do not have carpeting, place it on a blanket to avoid scratching the TV screen or the floor.

  4. 4

    Unscrew the two plastic bolts on each side of the TV stand's base; there is one bolt on each side. Set the screws aside for safekeeping.

  5. 5

    Pull the base away from the TV with one hand and use the other hand to hold the TV up. Most flat-screen TVs are not heavy, but you might need help holding the TV up while you're pulling the base off. Keep the base and bolts in a safe place in case you would like to reattach the base later.

Tips and warnings

  • Mount the TV to the wall if you've removed the base; the TV can fall over easily without the base stand attached.
