The Sony Bravia line is a popular brand of flat panel televisions. Many owners of these sets realise that wall mounting enhances the sleek and modern appearance of the panel and also provides a good viewing angle. Fortunately, Bravia sets do not present unusual obstacles to mounting, making the process relatively straightforward. Sony Bravia flat panels use standard Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) mounting hole patterns, which standardises wall mount selection and installation.
Set the Bravia on its attached base. Locate the four Philips-head screws on the lower centre of the television. Remove them using the screwdriver.
Press the button on the side of the stud finder and run the tool across the wall, watching and listening for the stud indicator. Locate two studs in the desired position on the mounting, and mark their locations with the tip of the drill bit or a light pencil mark.
Place the wall bracket portion of the mount against the wall, aligned with the marked stud locations. Level the bracket, then drill through the four corner mounting holes using the drill and 3/16-inch bit.
Drive four of the included lag bolts and washers through the four corner mounting holes, using the ratchet and socket set.
Locate the four threaded inserts arrayed in a square-shaped pattern on the back of the Bravia. Align the TV bracket half of the mount with these mounting inserts. Drive four of the supplied washers and Allen screws through the bracket into the inserts, using the Allen key included with the mount.
Lift the set up and off its base. Hang the Sony Bravia on the wall bracket. Tighten the screws on the mount designed to preventing unwanted shifting, using the Philips-head screwdriver or Allen key, depending on the mount.
Recruit a helper if the set is too heavy for you to hang alone. Damage from drops or impact are not covered under warranty.
