Get a wall mount bracket from a electronics shop stating the size of your LCD. DOnt know for how much it sells in your locality. It must be less than 1000 ruppees i guess..

The wall mount bracket consists of a wall stand and two clamps which has to be fastened to your TV. The stand has to be fixed to the wall with the help of nuts and related items supplied along with the bracket. Now the TV can be hooked to the stand. Simple as that. You can even call an electrician to do this job. When hooking the LCD to the bracket i suggest you to have one more person on the other side since holding the TV with both your hands and doing it yourself is not a good idea as the 40" one isnt weightless...

There are two types of stands, tiltable and non-tiltable. Better go for the tiltable one as you can adjust the position of the TV in case if you find it difficult to connect cables at the rear of the TV.

Supu, you don't need a video show. It is very simple. Wall mounts come with two parts - One is a back plate that you mount on the wall, and the other is a face plate that your screw on to the back of the TV using screws that will come with the wall mount.

1. Separate the two parts and screw the face plate onto the back of the TV.

2. The back plate will have four or more holes. Holding it against the wall where you want the TV, mark the wall through the holes using a pencil. Drill holes in those points using a appropriate drill bit, and insert plastic wall plugs (mostly included) into the holes on the wall. Now, using a screw driver or a wrench, mount the back plate on the wall.

3. Now simply mount the TV onto the back plate using the hinge at the top that will have an appropriate wedge on the face plate.

Cheers

No no. Dont use those plastic wall plugs. They might get loose and come out in the course of time. Use wooden pieces for this purpose. Those plastic plugs are for light uses only. Its safe to use the wooden pieces because the back plate has to hold the LCD which is not that lightweight as you think. If its a 22 or 27" TV it doesnt matter i think. My electrician did this job for me and he stated that these plastic plugs are not advisable for heavy usage...

I can only smile at the old fashioned ideas that the electrician tells you and that you believe in.

Wood tends to rot and lose it's grip. In time, you can just pull it out with your hand. Even if you use something like teak, as you insert a screw, you are splitting the wooden plug into multiple pieces that can easily slip. I have used plastic wall plugs all over my house and they have been there for over 14 years now without issues.

A wooden plug is easy for electricians and others as it does not need accuracy. If the screw does not fit properly, you can simply reposition the the screw, or hammer it in at an angle. With plastic wall plugs, you have to mark the walls accurately. You cannot turn the screw in sideways, and you do not have more a few mm as leeway. A wooden screw is also the only option for electricians who do not use electric drills to create accurate holes in the wall.

A plastic wall plug will never rot. In addition, as you turn the screw in, the plug actually expands inside and grips the sides of the hole in the wall. If you are very particular, you can actually paste a little amount of glue such as Fevicol on the plug before you insert it into the wall.

If you are uncomfortable with plastic, you can also use metal plugs that are available today and that come with the right size bolt.

Cheers

Re: how to mount sony bravia lcd tv on a wall ?

I would like to add that there are different types of plastic plugs. You need to use the ones that have wing like anchors on the sides. Once you put in the screws, the wing anchors expand inside the hole and they will never fall out, unless your wall itself is made of soft material (such as mud bricks).

You can use these type of plugs:


DO NOT use these plugs - they don't have any anchor:


Wooden plugs tend to fit tightly because of the property of wood to tighten itself around a nail/screw, but again there is no anchor in the wooden plug and if the quality of the wooden plug is bad, then it will disintegrate. I would agree with venkatcr - they are used by old electricians who have still not come to terms with using modern instruments (a drill, a tape measure and plastic plugs).
