  • Do not mount the TV at more than a 15 degree tilt.

WARNING: Keep the required distances between the TV and the wall to ensure proper ventilation. Failing to do so may result in fire or a problem with the TV due to an increase in the TV's internal temperature.

If your TV is not of a slim type, the gap size between the TV and the wall might vary.

NOTE: When using a wall mount, we recommend you use a Samsung Wall mount. Samsung TVs can be used with standard VESA wall mounts, and providing you follow the instructions above there should be no issue, however Samsung do not guarantee trouble free operation with a 3rd party wall mount.

There are some other issues you should carefully consider.

  • The larger size of TV are heavy objects and you should only install with help.
  • You need to ensure the wall mount is securely fastened to the wall according to the manufacturer's installation instructions.
  • In the event of an In-Home visit it is not the responsibility of the engineer to disassemble the TV from a 3rd party wall mount.
