    TV tilted upwards on stand

    Hello,

    I recently put the TV (47PFL5008K) on its stand (had it mounted on the wall before), and noticed the following:

    As you can see in the picture, the tv is tilted upwards. I could not find a way to correct this. I pulled the screws at the base to tilt it forward as much as possible but didn't help.

    Am I missing something? Is this the way it's supposed to stand?

    Thanks,

    Elias

    Hi Elias,

    The stand is designed to lean back ever so slightly, but from your picture it's hard to determine if it leans back more than it should.

    Does there appear to be anything unusual about the stand in any way?

    Best regards,
    Ina

    Hi,

    Well, using a leveler tool I measured about 1.4-1.6 degrees inclination. Here are a couple more pictures:

    There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the stand:

    Now that I think of, I also noticed something like this when it was on the wall, but I always thought it was because the cables were too close to the wall and where pushing the TV forwards.

    So is this how it's supposed to be?

    Hi Elias.

    I will look into this, but it may take a while. It a bit unusual information for me to get hold of, but I will do my best to find out for you!

    Hi Elias.

    The information I have received confirms that this inclination is within specification for this model.

    Best regards,
