TV Wall Mount - Another One

Hi! I am new to this forum and an amateur diyer. I am planning to wall mount a TV in my master bedroom. The wall that I plan to mount the TV on is shared between the MBR and the bathroom. When using the stud finder to locate stud, it shows that there is a live wire behind the wall. The issue is that the ac detection light goes on for the entire wall which is about 48 inch wide. I am not sure if the stud finder has some issue. Could it be that Stud Finder could be sending out faulty signals. Any suggestions or way around it?

Seems to me that the sensitivity is set too high for finding electrical wiring. If you have a detector that is not adjustable, I would suggest getting a different model.

Thanks Mile. I do not have an adjustable one. Will try another one as you suggested.

Before buying another detector what electrical is on the other side of the wall. Not sure what the problem is. Having a cable in the wall doesn't mean you can't mount the TV. You just have to be careful.
