Front 28" Samsung TV removed to be replaced by 24" rear TV

Front 28" Samsung TV removed to be replaced by 24" rear TV

Hitting my head on tv edge - NO MORE!
Since I had removed the rear Samsung 24" tv for similar reasons (sharp lower corner was at grandson eye & head level and very dangerous) and replaced with smaller 19" tv, I now can use that smaller 24" Samsung to replace the 28" front.

I thought it is a simple swap, but the VESA holes on the rear are actually lower, it would still stick a ways below the overhead unless I open it up and do the identical mod AS did to the original front tv. And since I have to open it up anyway, I will mod the tv to include the headphone connections just like the original front tv.

Not as easy as I initially thought

Not as easy as I initially thought

I initially thought I would just open up the 28" Samsung, unplug AS headphone wiring mods and move over to 24" Samsung. But no such luck.

Remove metal mounting plate/bracket. I first thought it was heavy gauge plastic, only to find out after removing that it is actually metal. Nice.

After opening 28" Samsung, saw that the wiring mods were actually sealed-in inside the left/right speakers. The speakers have their individual enclosures and the connections are not accessible without having to break open the enclosures.

Not wanting to destroy the enclosures, I decided to just cut the wires. That was the only way I could remove the wires from the speakers & also fish out from the back panel.

The speakers of the 24" Samsung do not have an enclosure, which makes soldering them in a much easier process.

But first, the metal mounting plate/bracket needed to be drilled for 75mm VESA holes. Also, the position of the mounting holes needed to be raised higher because they sit much higher on the 24" Samsung.

Soldered-in wiring onto speakers.

Alex. I want your skills. You too Wachuko....

Your time too, will you babysit my 3 boys?

Good news is they love the AI. Best purchase to date is the Dyson vacuum. These soccer tournaments trash it.

TXNEWBIE - Thank you for kind words. How do you have time for AI tinkering with 3 boys? Well, actually you took 1st step in getting them to like it. Then you can start training them to help out with AI mods. I have no brothers, no sons, so my grandson is the first boy I get to train/raise from birth to become a man. I literally raised him from birth to 2 yrs old while daughter and her hubby were at work. She trusted me more in that stage than him. He was too scared to handle his little baby, afraid he would break him He is their only child, so they are still learning. Grandson loves the AI too and I take every opportunity to teach him little things in the AI workings (he is only 3). He now knows how to use the AI toilet fill & flush valve, fridge & lock, microwave open & close, outdoor shower controls, FireFly light controls (by sliding door), Samsung remote, and MOST IMPORTANT - power door lock & unlock Ohhh, I trained him to love vacuuming with Dyson. Soon as he hears it, he comes to take it from me to help out.

Back to AI stuff. Finally got everything buttoned up and tested. Heck even headphone jacks actually work. I was afraid that due to the thin coax wiring used for the headphone mod, the soldering job I did may have melted the hair thin wires. Still big enough for grandson's cartoons, even viewing from rear. And no more hitting head on front tv and shoulders on rear tv.
