My picture has blown and i want to remove the tv from THE WALL MOUNT. I do not remember attaching the tv to the wall mount with any screws or bolts. It seems that there are 4 knobs on the back of the tv that slid into slots on the wall mount, but when i try to lift tv out of slots it seems to be locked. Is there a latch or something that i need to do to remove this tv from this wall mount?

Wall mount for what size TV?
The answer is probably in the instructions that came with the wall mount.
I need: Size of TV.
What kind of wall you want to attach this TV to.
Remember, I am far away and can't see what you are doing.
ok it depends on the wall mount but this is the basic idea of it. make sure there is at least one other person to help you.
1. Make sure everything is off and unplugged from the tv.
2. If you have cables holding your tv to the wall remove them.
3. there should be securing screws at both sides of the arms attaching the tv to the wall. loosen them/ remove them.
4. lift and pull the tv away from the wall. have a friend help you.
5. remove the screws and bolts from the tv and the wall mount and you should be done.
If this doesn't work, find the manual for the wall mount. if you need help or additional tips put them in the comments. Thanks

The wall mounting kit should come with all kind of screws to attach the mounting barckets to the back of the TV. Most TV uses metric M5 or M6 screws for the mounting holes on the back of TV, you should be able to get them at HD or LOWE for about 35 cents each.
My kits come with a bunch of Metric screws. Do you have the instruction sheet of the mounting kit?
Remove Back plate screws and match up the holes on the wall mount device with the holes on the back of your television. Attach the television to mounting devise, Then mount both to the wall. Hope this helps you with your problem.
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
