Technological advancements have decreased the depth of televisions, which provides users with additional options for placement in their homes. Insignia flat panel televisions were designed to sit on the supplied television stand or hang on the wall. If your Insignia television sits on a stand and you want to hang it on a wall, you have to remove the stand from the television.

Step 1

Place a towel on a flat surface and lay the television, screen down, on top of the towel. This will prevent damage to your television screen.

Step 2

Pull the stand cover out of the slot on the bottom and middle part of the television. The stand cover is a small plastic piece that fits into the television just above the stand. Some Insignia models do not have a stand cover. Users of these models can skip to Step 3.

Step 3

Remove the eight television stand screws with the Phillips screwdriver. The screws are located at the bottom and middle of the television, under the connection jacks.

Grip the base and slide it out of the holding slot on the television.
