    Hi guys, havent posted in a while, wondering if you can help, ive been offered this model with the pedestal stand but i was wondering if you can take the pedestal off and add a wall mount to it, or are they pre built with the pedestal and cannot be taken apart?
    if you can, where would be the best place to buy a wall mount?
    thanks in advance

    you most definitely can remove the stand from the tv. if you then so wish the stand can be sold on ebay quite easily too.

    Yes - undo the four screws at the rear then lift the set off the two
    spigots that support it when on the pedestal stand.

    Dont try and lift it on your own, unless you want to risk injuring your back (or dropping it).

    Panasonic only seem to do one type of wall bracket (non tilting / fixed) and its expensive (although well made).

    Other flavours are available - including pull out varieties that allow you move the screen through any angle and tilt it downwards etc. Be warned - if you intend to wall mount it - make sure you are drilling into good solid brickwork.

    If you have even the slightest gap under the plasterboard, it will start to crumple in as you tighten the bolts that hold the bracket to the wall. This is even more relevant with the "pull out" brackets, as the weight of the set and bracket put more pressure on the lower side of the bracket more than the top. End result can be a downwards tilt you didnt want, and a bill for re-plastering. :(
