Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

Depending on how far you forced them in, they may be quite difficult to get out, but you should be able to remove them.

Lay the tv face down on a soft surface like a bed or a table with a thick blanket on top. Then grasp the "neck" part of the leg and try to wiggle it side to side and up and down a little (rather than in and out) to help free it, then continue wiggling it like that while pulling straight out. You can "pry" slightly against the bottom edge of the tv if needed as well. Let me know if that works for you.

I tried that. I realize my hand strength is not that great. Wonder if I could use a pair of plyers or hammer with cloth to pull or knock it out. One came out fine. The other did not
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 11 months ago

Yes you could try that, do wrap it with a cloth or towel, pinch between the pliers jaws, then I'd use a screwdriver or other lever to pry it out against the base/edge (do this on the back edge of the tv though, stay away from the screen) or some hammer taps if you are careful. I would try the lever first though, as the hammer may cause some vibrations that could damage things inside so do that as a last resort.
