Default What Size screw for wall mounting Samsung Plasma?

I have a mount but I don't have the correct screw to go into the back of the tv its a Samsung PN50B560T5FXZA. If I just had a thread pitch and size it would same me lots of time going to the hardware store and getting the wrong screws 10 times!

Thanks!

They're probably 8mm screws. My Panasonics all use 8mm screws as well. I found a web page where a guy details wall mounting his Samsung and one pic has him comparing his stock screw to some 8mm screws in the mount's hardware pack. Make sure you carefully measure the depth of the threaded inserts in the back of your TV and make sure you buy screws that aren't so long that they'll bottom out and damage the TV. Stick a toothpick in the holes and mark the depth, then measure that depth in mms.

Thanks, I'll try the 8mils. And Yeah I was planning on checking the depth, but I didn't think of a tooth pick. THanks for the tip!
