You will need to purchase a suitable wall mount separately. (You'll need one for LARGE TVs.) On the back of your TV set you'll see there are 4 holes in the lower-central region of the rear panel. They are about 20" apart (left-right) and about 12" apart (up-down) These should match up with the bracket that comes with your wall mount. You will need M8 metric screws that are about 1.25" long. These will also be included with the wall mount. (Which will include some general directions for wall mounting.)
Flat Panel TV WallMounting Instructions
Currenttrends Flat Panel LCD and Plasma HDTV's are making TV's thinner, lighter andmore powerful. Superior high definition viewing, affordable pricing with addedspace and energy savings are only just a few practical reasons for purchasing anew HDTV. With newer thinner designs, LCD and Plasma HDTV's are ideal for wallmounting. Wall mounting your television frees up space and adds a new elementof aesthetic appeal to your home theater.
Before getting into any hardware mounting,find the best possible position to mount your television. 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. Once you have decided the general positioning of the wall mount installation,cut out a piece of cardboard or wrapping paper in proportion the of theflat panel television. 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.

At this point you can further adjust thepositioning horizontally to center it perfectly. Once the desired position isacquired, tighten down the screws that attach the mounting arms or plate to thewall mount.
Just purchase a mount for 42" and above They come in different styles for your likening and make sure the wall bracket gets mounted into the wall studs and your all set. No major job. I get $150 all day long for those installs.
there are two types of stands, some are wall type which needs to be mounted using rawl bolts, nuts are suppose to hold a stand, some are ground stands which are suppose to be put on a flat surface in order to balance.
Assume you are mounting on the wall, if so a good mount will have the standard bolts in the package. If this is a used mount, you will need to determine the length based on the mount, the bolt size is either 1/4" or 5/16", probably the latter.
