To know about the screw size, you have to download its repair manual by internet. It has disassembly details of the set, and have details about all screws and other stand parts. If you wish to get some details about these, check the site linked here. It has disassembly procedure illustrated to many brand TVs. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by type in the model name to your set in its search box, or view it in Mosaic /Timeslide option.

Testimonial: "Thank you! We'll head to Lowe's tomorrow to pick up the appropriate size screws. We just moved into a new home and they left the wall mount up for us, but did not leave any of the extra screws that went with the mount. Thanks again! "

SOURCE: VESA Screws

I went to Lowes and found some 4mm .7 screws, 25mm long, and they worked like a champ. (get the lock washers too)
Apparently, most mounts include only 5mm and larger screws

SOURCE: Can't find screw size to

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.

How do I remove the base stand to wall mount a Samsung model T24C55OND flat screen TV


The wall mount attaches to the top 1/3 portion of the TVs rear panel. The bottom of the back of the TV should not interfere with your wall mount if it's the correct size. Full instructions are listed starting at page 39 of the manual.

Thermostat replace


YOOLS U NEED= Basic hand tools will probably do the trick. You may need a rachet and set of sockets.

1

Cut the furnace's power source before beginning. Check for a power switch near your furnace or turn off the electrical power supply at the circuit breaker.

2Turn off the gas supply if you have a gas furnace. Look around the furnace for a black pipe. This pipe is the gas line. Check for a valve located near the pipe. Turn off the gas supply by moving the valve so it's perpendicular to the gas line.

3

Take off the thermostat's old cover by unscrewing the screws that attach the cover to the wall. Some covers don't have screws and simply pull off.

4

Unscrew the mounting plate and notice the wires.
5

Place a small piece of masking tape on each wire. Use a felt-tip marker to mark the masking tape according to the wire's screw terminal location. Usually, the wires are marked with letters.

6

Disconnect the low-voltage wires from the base plate by loosening the screws and then pulling the wires away.
7

Locate the mounting screws for the base plate. Unscrew them and take off the base plate. Guide the base plate over the wires carefully.

Hi, we have just bought a second hand Hitachi Hi Plasma TV Model PD1, 42PMA400A. We have a wall bracket but what we'd eally like is a stand ... the base plate and two stems that go into the bottom of...


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:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Plasma-LCD-Flat-Panel-Console-Shelf-Wall-Mount-TV-Stand-/270797719452?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f0ccd479c



I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

What size bolt screws into the back of the TV to mount a wall mount


42" will more likely to use Metric M6 screws (canbe M5 but not likely), the length of the screws will depend on the thickness of the mounting plates. When you buy wall mounting kit, it will come with mounting screws. You can get Metric screw from HD or Lowe's for about 50 cents each.
I get my wall mounts from Costco and they come with a bag of Metric screws fro mounting.

Want to mount tv lg 42lg50 42 in. on wall...which screws you use for drywall


You don't use screws for drywall to hang a TV, EVER.  That's a 50 pound TV.  You should only use the heavy stud bolts that came with mounting bracket and bolt them directly into the studs.  If by some chance the mounting didn't come with them, go to Home Depot or Lowes with the mounting tell them what you're doing and they'll get you what you need.  You are using a mounting bracket, aren't you? If by some chance you're trying to do this without a mounting bracket, STOP what you're doing and get a mounting bracket appropriate for your size television.  Go to Monoprice, they're the cheapest and their quality is excellent.  Meritline is good as well, they just take a little longer to get.  See the video below.

I bought a used over the range microwave oven( kenmore) I would like to know how to install it knowing there is an opening to the roof. thank you


Most Kenmore microhoods use a 3" by 10" exhaust duct. Check for correct demensions. Make sure that the existing vent is this size or that you have room to adapt to this size. There should be a damper mounted to the top of the micro which will attach to the vent duct work. You will need an outlet in the cabinet above the micohood. This should be on a circuit of it's own. The microhood should have a wall plate for the back wall. I'm going to assume there are no templates available. Hold the wall plate against the back of the micro to determine the height placement in the opening. Most install centered under and against the cabinet above. Not all do, so this will confirm. Mount the wall plate to the existing wall studs with at least 1/4" by 2-1/2" lag bolts. Bore an 1-1/4" hole in the right rear corner of the cabinet above, about 2" out from the back of the cabinet and 2" in from the side, this is not a critical measurement, it is to pass the electric cord into the upper cabinet. There are two screws that support the front of the hood. I believe they are 1/4" by 3-1/2" long. If not included, check for size. The hardwae will have them, get flat washers to fit both also. Measure from the back of the micro to the mounting holes in the top of the micro, include the wall plate in this measurement, they'll be about 10" out from the back and about 1-1/2" in from the edge, near the front, but check that measurement, they vary. Drill 3/8" holes in the bottom of the cabinet at these locations. If doing this alone, best that you move the range out. It's nice to have a helper at lifting time. With the plate on the wall and the holes in the bottom of the cabinet, your ready. Put the 1/4" screws and someting to drive them in the upper cabinet, so they'll be available. Lift the micro into the opening with the front tilted downward, hook the back of it into the bottom of the wall plate, push the cord into the upper cabinet, tilt the front of the micro up until you can start the front support screws. Start both, don't let go of the micro until you are sure that both screws are started and will support the front weight. Once you're sure, tighten both screws all the way and connect the vent. Steel tape is best for sealing up any leaks. Power up the outlet, plug in the microhood and put in the popcorn. Get a good movie and enjoy in your accomplishment. Congrats. PS: Make sure the roof vent opens when the hood is turned on, I have seen them stuck shut from grease build-up.

I have a toshiba dkt2010-sd that I need to mount to the wall


The base is removed and turned 180 degrees and put back on phone notice the slide tabs are in correct position and can noe be hung by screws or a wall jack. Where the cord plugs in there is a breakout tab, that is the insert to hold the reciever on the phone when hung up.

No screws for wall mounting 42 inch tv


any hardware store will have them bring your tv manual with you it will tell you the spec on the screw to connect to the 4 pre existing nuts on the back of the tv as far as from the mount to wall it will be a standard lag bolt small enough to fit threw the hole and long enough to go threw the drywall and about an inch and a half of the studd 2" to 2 1/2" inch lag bolt will work

Removing the base of flat panel tv


You don't have to mess around with the screws on the bottom of the base.

There are 4 screws on the back of the Toshiba that are in line with the wall mounting screw holes.

Remove the 4 screws and the base falls off.
