I had a similar problem, luckily i have a socket set from halfords which also contains loads of torx bits... a long handled socket lever to get enough leverage should work...

Or buy a kit of bits from Halford with a proper wrench and a Torx bit and get some 'slow' leverage.  Or is the wall damp and the screws rusted in ?

I assume you have the correct screwdriver?

An impact driver with the correct bit may do it, or a small angle grinder to take the screw heads off, then cut the screws off below the walls surface at an angle.  Give the screws a dab of paint to prevent it rusting through once filled.

Can't remove tv wall mount to paint
Apr 7th, 2018, 6:10pm
 
Hi, I hope this is the right section for this question.
I have just moved into a new home and am having an issue with a tv wall mount in the bedroom. The mount is on a concrete wall and I can not get it removed  The screws are torque heads but no screwdriver seems to move them at all.  I'd be grateful if anyone could advise what I can do to remove the mount as I want to be able to decorate and don't want a tv in the room.  I don't mind if i need yup patch the wall a bit but would prefer not to put big holes in it!
Thanks for your help.
