Hi all,

We just bought the above plasma tv. Now we want to mount the tv to our ent. center; however, they dont include a bolts that go thru the braket that is attached to the back of the tV. Bought it from Best Buy; the instruction are vague, horribly written. They mention an M8..

What is M8; or waht kind of bolt should i use; in the sintructions they just mention it should be ceryaon lenghth etc..

Much appreciated.

According to the television manual it calls for M8 screws with a minimum 17mm, and maximum 22mm, of penetration into the television.

So you would use 8mm machine thread screws, that achieve that range of penetration, plus additional length for the thickness of the mount and any washers if recommended.

Wall mounts usually come with an assortment of screws in various sizes that usually will fit your needs.
