Assembling the TV

Attaching the TV to the Stand

Make sure you have all the accessories shown, and that you assemble the stand following the provided assembly instructions.

  • The product colour and shape may vary depending on the model.
  • For the assembly method and stand components, refer to Quick Setup Guide.

Mounting the TV on a wall

If you mount this TV on a wall, follow the instructions exactly as set out by the manufacturer. Unless it is correctly mounted, the TV may slide or fall and cause serious injury to a child or adult and serious damage to the TV.

  • You can mount the TV on the wall using a wall mount kit (sold separately).
  • Refer to the installation manual included with the Samsung wall mount kit.

  • Samsung Electronics is not responsible for any damage to the product or injury to yourself or others if you choose to install the wall mount on your own.
  • You can install your wall mount on a solid wall perpendicular to the floor. Before attaching the wall mount to surfaces other than plaster board, contact your nearest dealer for additional information. If you install the TV on a ceiling or slanted wall, it may fall and result in severe personal injury.
  • Standard dimensions for wall mount kits are shown in the table on the next page.
  • If you are installing a third-party wall mount, note that the length of the screws you can use to attach the TV to the wall mount is shown in column C in the table on the next page.
  • When installing a wall mount kit, we recommend you fasten all four VESA screws.
  • If you want to install a wall mount kit that attaches to the wall using two top screws only, be sure to use a Samsung wall mount kit that supports this type of installation. (You may not be able to purchase this type of wall mount kit, depending on the geographical area.)


Do not install your wall mount kit while your TV is turned on. This may result in personal injury from electric shock.

  • Do not use screws that are longer than the standard dimension or do not comply with the VESA standard screw specifications. Screws that are too long may cause damage to the inside of the TV set.
  • For wall mounts that do not comply with the VESA standard screw specifications, the length of the screws may differ depending on the wall mount specifications.
  • Do not fasten the screws too firmly. This may damage the product or cause the product to fall, leading to personal injury. Samsung is not liable for these kinds of accidents.
  • Samsung is not liable for product damage or personal injury when a non-VESA or non- specified wall mount is used or when the consumer fails to follow the product installation instructions.
  • Do not mount the TV at more than a 15 degree tilt.
  • Always have two people mount the TV onto a wall.

- For 82 inch or larger models, have four people mount the TV onto a wall.

Providing proper ventilation for your TV

When you install your TV, maintain a distance of at least 10 cm between the TV and other objects (walls, cabinet sides, etc.) to ensure proper ventilation. Failing to maintain proper ventilation may result in a fire or a problem with the product caused by an increase in its internal temperature.

  • When you install your TV with a stand or a wall mount, we strongly recommend you use parts provided by Samsung Electronics only. Using parts provided by another manufacturer may cause difficulties with the product or result in injury caused by the product falling.

Preventing the TV from falling

1. Using the appropriate screws, firmly fasten a set of brackets to the wall. Confirm that the screws are firmly attached to the wall.

- You may need additional material such as wall anchors depending on the type of wall.

2. Using the appropriately sized screws, firmly fasten a set of brackets to the TV.

- For the screw specifications, refer to "Standard Screw" in the table on the previous page.

3. Connect the brackets fixed to the TV and the brackets fixed to the wall with a durable, heavy-duty string, and then tie the string tightly.

- Install the TV near the wall so that it does not fall backwards.
- Connect the string so that the brackets fixed to the wall are at the same height as or lower than the brackets fixed to the TV

  • The product colour and shape may vary depending on the model.
