Question Panasonic VT50 - Screws for OEM stand (moving)?

I need to move a 65" VT50 across town, and figured it would be easiest to take it off of the wall mount and put it on its original stand as we move it. However, I can't find the screws that bolt the back of the TV to the stand (the screws that secure the flat section that goes into the slot).

Can someone please take a picture of one of their screws next to a ruler? Or just tell me their length? I'd like to try to find some w/ the correct length, and hopefully a compatible thread.

Also, if anyone has any tips for moving a giant plasma, I'm all ears.

According to the Quick Start Guide for the 65VT50 in PDF, the screws that are included with the stand are 12 pcs of a silver colored M5 x 16mm screw, plus one black M4 x 10mm screw - so the four you're mising are exactly the same as the 8 that are already in your stand's neck assembly. To verify this, maybe fliip your stand upside down and remove the neck from the base (four screws i presume), then use test those four screws to attach the flat plate to the back of the TV to make sure they fit correctly. Then it's just a matter of buying the same exact size of metric screw (an RC Car / RC model airplane shop is a great source for small metric screws in various lengths).

When i removed my stand for wall-mounting, i threaded those screws into the back of the TV for safekeeping. Did you happen to do the same and just forget?

BTW - Do not over-tighten these screws as their heads are really soft and the phillips slot strips out really easily. You don't need to crank these screws down tight, just snug them firmly and don't let the screwdriver slip in those slots.

Yeah, I should have threaded them, but didn't. I'm betting they're with the manual, which I can't find either .

Anyway, thanks for the help!
