I bought a mount that’s supposedly mostly universal. It says that it works for 300x300 VESA mount patterns, which my Sony kdl-37xbr6 has. But I can’t seem to figure out which holes this measurement applies to. If I can’t figure this out, I might not have a TV for much longer :/

I also don’t know how to post pics anymore lol

Um, move the mount around until all 4 holes line up?  

 

Or read the directions, like a woman would.

If you can get the two upper holes to like up, that's all you really need.

The only holes I can find that could maybe work are way beyond where this mount reaches

Is there 4ea 1/4” holes, about 12” apart L/R and 9” apart U/D in the back of the TV? Some of the other TVs have wider apart holes, but require a mount with 4 legs that stick out to grab them...and there is a peppering of holes the mount center that you combine 2 of to get the legs the right spacing.

Or just get drunk and start throwing tools.

When I bought a wall mount for the bedroom TV the guy asked me what the hole pattern was on the TV so the mount would match up.

Is it possible yours doesn't match?

Idk. I think the set is like 10 years old. But in the manual, it claims 300x300. I can’t seem to find holes that match those dimensions tho
