iirc the guide pins are mainly there to allow you to initially hook/hang/support the screen on the stand when you are assembling it. the 4 additional screws then secure the screen to the stand. the guide pins probably provide some additional structural support, but any similar screws would work (and dont need to be "sony" )

they just need to have the right thread diameter, length of thread, and the correct shape head.

Anyone have any advice for me with this tv when it comes to using game mode with the ps4? Specifically, it darkens and washes out the picture a lot under game mode. Is there something I can change to fix that?

Try adjusting your Game Mode settings. When my friend comes over with his PS3 and we game I leave the Game Mode settings as they are which how they were "out of the box" as they say.

Perhaps the PS4's auto range option is sending a signal to the TV that looks like this with your settings. I think its auto mode defaults to sending a Limited signal, so perhaps try forcing it to Full and calibrate the TV around that. Just a thought.

mjpartyboy has a point. Set everything (PS4 and TV) on Full for gaming. On TV you can find that setting under: Home / Settings / Display Settings / Video Input Settings / Dynamic Range / HDMI (x)

best d.

When you say that Game Mode "darkens and washes out" -- which picture mode are you referring to in comparison? (If you compare to "General-Vivid", then it's no surprise )

As Steve said, adjust your picture settings under Game mode. Game-Standard behaves pretty much like General-Standard, and Game-Original behaves pretty much like General-Custom.

Well, i know it's not going to be like vivid, but what I mean is the black levels aren't as black as they look washed out grey. I've adjusted it and gotten it to where I like it, but is there anything under game mode that i shouldn't turn back on (besides what is obviously greyed out so i cant turn on)? I don't want to use game mode but then still have some input lag because i enabled a few features

Sorry if I'm dull, but for me it's a bit hard to decide what your actual problem is. One time the picture is too dark, but then, when "the blacks look grey", it's kind of "too bright" again, isn't it? Moreover, you did not say the problem is with games in general (which would indicate wrong RGB levels setting), but you explicitely said it is when using Game Mode (which would collapse things down to a problem with picture settings).

So. Is the problem present with games always, regardless of Scene Mode? Or are games okay with Scene General or Scene Cinema, and look only bad with Scene Game?

Simple test. Bring on a dark screen with lots of black. The TV's native black point is at "Brightness=50", exactly there and nowhere else. Check in a very dark room. When things are correct, then the plain-black level should not change with Brightness<<50, and full-black should immediately begin to brighten up with Brightness=51..52..53.

If you need to bring brightness down to ~36 for full-black to get truly black, then there is an input level mistake (input="limited", TV expecting "full").
If true-black only starts to brighten up from Brightness=64 upwards, then there is an input level mistake (input="full", TV expecting "limited").
