check and see if there are long screws through the side of the cabinets beside the TV.Most all were held in this way.The screws go through the cabinet and into the TV itself.done a few and all were held in this way
also seen screws through the lower mounting lip of the tv to the lower leading edge where Tv mounts

Although we don't have a Dutch Star ours had NO screws in the tv itself. The oak surround had a couple of screws coming up from the bottom hidden beneath some plastic caps. The other two screws were on the sides, one in each cabinet on the sides of the tv. Once I removed the oak surround there was a piece of aluminum angle that screwed into the ceiling at the top of the tv. I believe there were three screws in that piece. Once that's taken out, and you'll need some help you need to lift the front of the tv up to get it over a couple on wood stops that also keeps the tv in it's place. Slide it out carefully and make sure you have your balance cause you'll get a surprise as to how heavy that tv is. Again be sure to have some help there when sliding the tv out. Good Luck.

just took ours out- had to remove the wood trim surround first. there were two metal "clips" that screwed to the bottom of the box and held the base of the TV in place. there was also a wood trim piece across the top that held the top of the TV in. no screws in the TV itself. boy are those things heavy.

Mine, remove the trim around it, remove a wooden block, then remove a handfull of screws that attached plumbers strap to the tv and wood structure around it

If you scroll down in QT's 1 & 2 and plus the new #3 you will find info on how to remove and install a new LCD for Christmas.
I have one that was changed out in your bedroom in 1 & 2 with pictures.
