Hi, I'm Nathan.

There are 2 pieces to the stand, there are 4 screws that go into the stand horizontally (into the back of the tv) and 4 more that hold the 2 pieces of the stand together that also have to come apart. Make sure you have those 4 horizontal screws out, then the base of the tv should slide off of the tv. It may be easier to turn the tv upside down so the base is sticking up (have someone hold the tv securely), then lift straight up on the base.

Let me know if that helps,
