Screw size, TV base stand NS-LCD32-09

I am attempting to mount my NS-LCD32-09 to the original pedastal TV stand which somehow got lost in a cross country move.  

 

I need to know the screw size for the 4 screw holes on the back of the Television.

 

TIA, Michelle

Hello Madillard,

 

The correct screw type for the NS-LCD32-09 is M4 with a length of 16mm.

The M4 x 16mm seems to work in the top screw holes... but not on the bottom.

 

Someone on the phone from Insignia told us that the bottom 2 screws needed were T4 x 20mm long -- however no one I've talked to or checked around online seems to know about T4 screws.

 

Can you verify that the M4 x 16mm will work in the bottom two holes?  (They didn't seem right when I tried 'em, even though the top ones worked fine.

Hello troutco,

 

T4 or any other screw labeled as T is an abbreviation of Torx and is a fairly common type of screw used in electronics. Here is a picture of what the head of a torx screw will look like. You should be able to purchase these screws at a hardware store or at an auto parts store.

Insignia NS-LCD32-09; cant find T4 20mm screws anywhere!

Hello, a few days ago I bought an NS-LCD32-09 model tv at best buy which was a previously used wall display. It didnt come with a stand so I ordered one online through best buy part search. When it arrived it didn't have the screws so I looked them up online. I was able to find all the screws but one; a T4 20mm screw. I can't find them anywhere locally or online to even buy one. Does anyone one have any idea of a metric equivalent screw i could use; maybe an M5 or M6?

Hello MTW1989,

 

Sorry for the delay in my response, a M4 self tapping or machine screw should be a viable replacement.

I bought these a Lowes. Tell them you want machine screws.

M4-.70 x 16 for the M4 screw & M4-.70 x 20 for the T4 screw. They fit well in my base stand. Since this TV model is discontinued and they don't sell the parts I was at least given the screw lengths. I took the base with me to match up the diameter. Hope you find this helpful.

Hello cindynelson123,

Welcome to Community@ Insignia™!

You need 8 screws that are M4 by 8 mm long.  4 of them for the base and 4 for the neck to the back of the TV.
