Need Help!!!

I have this old flat screen tv that Im trying to mount on my wall...but the base of the tv is very challenging to get off and i can't figure it out.....

The base is held on by 6 screws.. 2 really easy to remove and 4 that are very had to get to...i can't get a screw driver in there at all.... so does anyone have any idea how i could get those screws out at all?

they are all phillips head Btw...

this has been frustrating the hell out of me all day...you guys are my last option lol before i just break the damn base off

Looks like your gonna have to make a tool. Possibly cutdown a Philips and square off the cut end and use a wrench?

Careful.
Double check your instructions.

Those bases are normally held on by 4-8 screws that all go in through the back.
The screws on the bottom are not normally a part of the base attachment.

But... if they DO have to come off, don't overlook:

Usually there is a small snap that you push-in to release the base.
