step 1- First thing you need to do is buy a mounting kit.

b) If you have a fireplace, mounting your TV above it is a popular spot for mounting since it’s generally a focal point of the room.

c) Located an outlet.

d)Located the wall studs using a stud finder.

 

Step 2: Attach brackets to the back of the TV.

b)Remove the stand from the TV.

 

Step 3- Mark and drill your pilot holes.

These are the small holes that will allow your mounting screws to enter the wall. You’ll probably want a partner for this.

 b) Using a pencil, make light marks where you’ll drill the holes to attach it            to the wall.

c) Attach a bit to your drill, and drill holes where you marked using the                 mount
