Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV
We purchased this TV for my mother who is a senior. Now whe has moved into a place where she did not need it. We packed it up but now we cannot find the six screws for the base. Does anyone know what size/kind of scres if need or have any to sell. Thanks for any help.

Take the tv off the stand and lean it against soemthing, take the stand to a hardware shop and find some bolts that match the threads inside the stand. I think that would be your best bet. Just dont lay the tv down, if you have ot put it in the box thats ok, I just dont want it to get broken while we hunt down some screws.

First of all a standard screw will not work. You will have to visit your local hardware store and purchase a machine screw to fix the problem. In many cases you will have to use an estimated guess and gamble your time and money. The length and width of the machine screw will be found at this store. The effort is miniscule and money will be meager. Remember, do not use a standard screw!

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.
