Screw size needed to wall mount my tv

I just bought an Insignia ns-32L45oa11.  All of the screws for my wall mount are to big for the back of the tv.  What size screw would I need to fit into the back of the tv so I can wall mount it?

Hi plas767,

Welcome to Community@Insignia™!

 

I am currently doing some research to provide you the accurate "Type of Screw" (M4, M6, M8, etc...) you will need to attach the TV to your wall mount bracket.

 

Will provide you an appropriate response as soon as possible.

Hello plas767,

 

First of all, I would like to apologize for the delay in my response. I hope this information does not come in too late. This 

32” TV uses 3 M4 screws (Length:14mm).



If it was useful, and you liked it, Kudo it!

Thank you,

Re: Screw size needed to wall mount my tv

Hi,

 

Perhaps you can help me too.  I am trying to wall mount my 40" insignia TV but noticed that the screws that came with the TV were too short (8 mm length).  I really don't know what size these are in dia.  Could you please advise me the size (dia, length) of the screws that I would need to connect the bracket on to the TV.  I came across a manual on the web that mentions M8 screws.  But when I called a store to check the availability, they asked me what "pitch" screws do I need?  Please help.  Thanks.

Hello rajanchaudry,

Welcome to Community@ Insignia™!

If the manual for your particular model shows M8, that will be the width required. The length is going to be dependent on the thickness of the wall mount bracket, which can be determined by using a toothpick to gauge the depth of the threads on the back of the TV added to the thickness of the wall mount and any additional washers provided with the mount. In terms of "pitch" I am assuming they mean if it is fine or rough threads, which can be gauged by taking in one of the screws that came already screwed into the wallmount points on the back of the TV for the hardware store employee to match.
