What size bolts for mounting bracket??

I bought an entertainment center with a arm and mount for this tv. I have to mount part of the bracket to the tv. I see the 3 holes with inserts in them on both sides of the TV. I can't find what size bolts go in the inserts. Called Zenith and they don't know either. They didn't come with the universal mount/stand. Any help please.

I used the bolts that held the stand to the TV. They were the same size as the holes on the back of the TV. Or you could use them to match the size

Superior high definition viewing, affordable pricing with addedspace and energy savings are only just a few practical reasons for purchasing anew HDTV.

Because wall mountingan HDTV is more of a permanent solution, careful planning is needed whenintegrating the television into your home design.
Furniture placement, overall themes, viewing angles, and the best audiopositioning are all factors that will help determine the placement of the LCDor Plasma TV.

Next, approximate the placement by taping the piece ofcardboard or wrapping paper to the wall where the TV will be placed and mark itwith a pencil.
Preparing the TV Removethe stand from the television and lay the TV on its face. Locate the fourmounting holes on the back of the television and remove the bolts. Next, removethe mounting arms or mounting plate from the wall mount packaging.
To attach mounting arms, line up the arms vertically and parallel to each otherusing the mounting holes on the back of the television. Make sure that they arein perfect alignment and bolt the arms using the bolts and washer supplied withthe wall mount.
If you are using a mounting plate, simply line up the holes with the mountingholes on the television. Secure the mounting plate with the bolts and washersincluded with your wall mount.
Preparing the Wall Locatethe studs closest to the desired position using a stud finder and mark themwith a pencil. Remove the wall mount from the package. Line up the wall mountup to the studs within the center of the marked position you determinedearlier. If it is not perfectly centered, wall mounts can be adjustedhorizontally at a later time.
Using a level, line up the wall mount and mark the positioning of where hebolts will go. Drill holes into the stud about 1" deep, drill bit depends on the of bolts supplied with the wall mount. Bolt the wall mountto the wall with bolts and washers, but don't tighten down the boltscompletely. Adjust the position of the wall mount left or right to center it toyour desired position. When you are done, tighten the bolts the rest of theway. Mounting the Television Attachingthe television to the wall mount takes two people. Simply lift the televisionand hook it to the wall mount.

Can't find screw size to fit back of my 42in Toshiba Regza. I want to mount on wall. Screws that came with the 42in wall mount don't fit it. It's not a 5/16, 6mm, 8mm fine thread or course thread

M8 - according to a document I found online for a Toshiba mounting bracket kit for their LCD TVs the bolt size is M8. It should be easily available in a large hardware store or place that sells large flat screens.
Make sure you hand tighten it into the mounting hole before attaching any brackets, to judge the proper depth for tightening. Over-tightening with a long bolt could damage the TV.

Wall mount usually comes with mounting screws already.

The bolts that hold the wall mount bracket to the TV vary in size depending on the manufacturer of the tv you have.

The best thing to do is to purchase a wall mount bracket specifically made for your TV.

It may be possible that your owners manual will list the size of the bolts you will need.

The universal mounts generally have a selection of screws that are to fit different makes and models of tvs.
If you bought the appropriate size mount for the size of your TV, there should be mounting holes that match your TV, and screws that will secure it.
I have not seen any mounts that use more than four.
