Changing to from 32" to 40"

Did anybody do this? If so, what were the problems? I tried to mount a 40" Samsung but the mounting bracket is not adjustable.

Once the space is there your good to go. To date, I have mounted approx 45 tv's using a wide range of mounting hardware, most of the mounts are universal however I found different tv manufactures set the screw holes at different distances in the back. My advice would be to either drill new holes for the screws through the mounting hardware or purchase new mounts that fit the tv.

I also changed my Sony 32 to a Sony 40. I took the steel frame out that was custom made by Newmar, I imagine, and took it to my brother who cut some pieces out and welded new ones to suit the new TV. I did not need a TV mounting bracket.

Can I change to a more universal mount? What am I screwing this mount into?

I just finished an upgrade for a friend.

A 32" to a 42"- See it here-

We used a 3 axis articulating bracket (rated for a 42" TV) for the mount. It screwed into the 2x4 shown above. I used thru bolts with washers and locking nuts to hold it in place. See it here.

It's a very different install on mine. I'm not sure how my mounts are secured in the wall.

I only tackle the DIY projects that I am 100 percent comfortable doing. If you are not confident you can come up with a good installation, find a friend. The last thing you want is a 42" TV landing on her lap on a rough piece of road.

I just changed mine over today from 32 to 40 Sony...it was done at a TV shop but I watched...they put a plywood backing board on the existing steel frame behind the tv and mounted a very slimline mount to it, then hung the tv......looks GREAT, cost me $200 labor but IF it falls, they buy another....not me!
