Contact the authorized dealer for more details. They can provide you the exact screw size details. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Disassemble procedure to many popular brand TVs and other devices are given in detail with illustrations. It too will have these details.
If you still have the manual or know the manufacturer you might want to try giving them a call. They'll know what size screw was used on that model tv stand. Otherwise, measure the insides of the holes and go to a hardware store; they should be able to help you find the right one. Just make sure they are not too long. Screws are pretty cheap, so I'd suggest buying one of a couple different sizes to try out. They should fit snugly in the hole, but should not split the wood/plastic. You'll want to get four of the same size washers and nuts as well once you know what kind of screw you need. That way they won't loosen. :)
If you search on Ebay for your TV's exact model number, sometimes you can find a replacement stand for it there from someone who has their TV mounted to the wall and is no longer using it. These are normally fairly heavy and bulky items, so Ebay purchase prices and shipping costs can vary widely.
I did not see any for your exact model of TV available there when I looked, but the online selection changes daily, so you can always keep checking back. Just search on Ebay for 'HITACHI TV STAND' or 'HITACHI TV BASE' and you will see a wide variety of them available for different Hitachi TV models as well as what the average price for them is.Otherwise you can just buy a generic wall mount floor stand for around $100 which bolts to the TV like a wall mount, but actually sits on the floor instead of being bolted to the wall.
Here are some links to a few different models currently available on Ebay which include pictures so you can see what I mean:
I don't know the model in particular, but most of these sets can be wall mounted if you have the screw holes for the mounting plate in the back of the set.
What I believe the tech was telling you would be that it is best to not wall mount the set. The reason is that we found that we have been seeing a higher failure rate from sets being wall mounted. This is because the surface of the wall reflects some heat back in the set, and thus causes it to internaly run warmer. This is also the same from running a set inside of a cabinet. The complete surface area behind the set being very close to the wall surface blocks cooler air circulation. It is best to run these sets on a stand that is out in the opened at least 1 foot away from any wall surface.
