If you pay for shipping I will send you my screws. Maybe a buck or two will cover it in an envelope. I just removed them last night as the TV is being junked for the parts. Email me.

I had sold the stand with screws just two days ago...would have gone to measure it for you, but it's gone...very sorry :-(
However, you can still go to the nearest Home Depot, Ace Hardware or whatever your local hardware store is and get a few sample bolts that help you find out what do you need.
Note they may be metric or enlgish system.
Another thing you can do is search on eBay for others who have the stand and ask them to measure the bolts for you.

It can be the main board, power supply, backlight inverter, etc.
You need to do some troubleshooting to narrow down the probelm, so please read my guide first.
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:
