Good evening. 

Our TV has developed a noticeable tilt to it, dropping 20mm on the right hand side. The bracket is still true and level to the wall however.

The only point that seems to have some give to it is where the TV “dangles” from the bracket. 

I am guessing that something needs to be tightened, but before I start attacking random bolts, does anyone have any recommendations on where to start?

Noticing the tilt happened at the same time that we started to notice the bracket creaking while in motion  

Thank you

Sounds like a potentially dangerous situation there Jay. I would go careful (as it sounds like you are doing) and remove the tv from the bracket to check the wall itself, the fixings and maybe have an electrical or general builder to hand while doing it. I am trying to think of how or why a tv would suddenly tilt from its bracket, especially if the bracket remains level to the wall. Is it plasterboard, brick? Wall structurally sound and no movement etc? Go easy. All the best, Simon.

Got nervous and so have decided to live with the wonk. Don’t want to drop an otherwise perfectly functional TV. Will have B&O look at it next time we have a reason to have them round. 

Thank you.
