please please help


Hi - just wondered if you found a solution to this. I also recently purchased a Samsung 51" Plasma, and in my haste to put it together I slid the stand receptacle into place on the back of the TV, did not even put the screws in, and now the darn thing refuses to come off. I also see the little slot with a padlock icon next to it but I can't seem to pry or force the stupid stand mount off the TV now.

I called Samsung support and girl told me to "apply pressure". Needless to say that did not work.
