Ultra Slim Wall Mount + Power Cord = Doesn't Fit Behind?
by cabelsa - 5/1/09 12:02 AM
I have a UN55B7100, and the Ultra Slim Wall Mount.
I just added a recessed power outlet into my wall behind the TV so I can eliminate cords.
Despite being recessed, when the TV's power cord is plugged into the outlet, the cord still sticks out about 1" from the wall -- even when I bend it as tight as possible.
The result: when the TV is then mounted, the power cord end is jamming right into the back of the Ultra Slim mounted TV, stick further out than the wall mount, which causes the TV to "bow" out at an angle -- tight at the top and far at the bottom. It looks ultra bad, not ultra slim.
The question: what have people done here? Do I need to find a more recessed power outlet somewhere? (Can you recommend one?) Or is there an alternate power cord I can attach to the set somehow that doesn't stick out so much?
Thanks for any pointers you can provide.
