I was mounting my 53 inch LCD on my wall today and I was screwing the brackets into the back of the TV and I used 4 screws that were slightly bigger (thicker) Than the ones that came with the bracket, I had lost them a few months ago, so I purchased 4 new ones (home depot) that are slightly thicker and I thought it wouldn't be a problem, so when I screwed then brackets in everything went well, the screws fit perfectly and I gues made the holes a little bigger, then I took the screws out of one side to adjust the brackets to make it a little higher, and the screws wouldn't back out so I used some force and I not only pulled out the screws but i pulled out the female part were the screw actually screws into on the back of the TV. Now I can not screw the bracket into the TV cause the female part is in my hands, what do I do. If I could and it was easy I would open up my LCD TV and put back the female part where the screws go into and maybe some how use washers to keep them into place? Cause it also took out the plastic that held it into place. Not sure if it's easy to open up a LCD TV, I don't want to screw any thing up. Does this mean I have to keep the TV on a stand and can not hang the set up on the wall????? PLEASE HELP.
