    I've just picked up a couple of second hand Sharp Aquos 26" TVs ( LC26GA6E) for the guest bedrooms. I bought them with this B-Tech BT7513 mount. Unfortunately, I don't have the 4 screws that go into the back of the TV to connect to the mount. Can anyone cast any light on which screws I should buy?? Is there a standard for all tvs?

    Hi

    They are 100x100 VESA which are usually standard M4 machine screws. You can get these from a hardware store. Check the depth by poking something down the hole and seeing where it stops. Remember to add the thickness of the bracket when choosing the length of the screw and have at least 5mm of thread into the TV.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Serotonin,
    Unfortunately there is not a standard thread/screw size for all tv's. The BT7513 when purchased new comes with a variety of screws to do the job. I would suggest measuring the width of the screw holes on the rear of the TV, probably find they are 4 or 5mm. Be wary of the length, 20/25mm should be ok but check the depth. Pop in to a local hardware shop, ask for Pan Head Pozi Drive Machine Screws, if your holes are 4mm they will be M4's 5mm M5's.
    Hope this helps.

    Bump alert.

    Sony Bravia TV ; kdl40w2000
    The parents have the above TV, and a wall bracket, but need the screws to attach the mount to the TV. I can't find it in the manual, would anybody have an idea where to look for the exact screws required?

    Thanks

    Hi

    These should be M6 x 16mm screws.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you very kindly. I assume I need a set of washers, and grabbing washers also?

    By the way, Your website is excellently designed.

    Hi

    Just washers will be ok, no need for shakeproofs really although you could if you wanted to.

    Thanks for the compliments on the site.

    Regards

    M6 were slightly too big. Fortunately I had some smaller ones.

    thanks

    We will never know exactly which size of screws will definite fit for your TVs unless you ask the TV Manufacturer.

    Mmmm, Sony says M6 x 16. Must have changed it but not updated info....

    Glad you got it sorted in the end anyway.
