We all do it – we open a new toy, throw out the manual with the box and any extra screws and parts. We won’t need them! Until… We do. And then, well, we’re screwed. 

You can find exactly the screws you need for your Toshiba TV base stand by searching online by your exact model number and finding the matching screw set. A Toshiba TV C350 base stand needs 4 screws and 2 base legs.  

For this article, we will be focusing on the Toshiba C350 50-inch. I will put in links here to source parts you may need for other Toshiba models. So, let’s dive right in and check out the Toshiba TV. 

The Toshiba C350 TV Stand

The Toshiba C350 silver metal stand is not tilted. The metal legs are sturdy and have rubber feet to avoid scratching your console table; there are built-in cable restraints on the back of each leg. 

Overall, the stand is made up of two base stands and 4 screws. Depending on your model, you may need the Stand Screws for Toshiba 19L4200U or the longer Stand Screws for Toshiba 26AV502R. It isn’t necessary to use the stand if you will be wall-mounting the TV.

To build the stand, you will need a screwdriver to twist the screws into the bottom of each stand leg. Each stand requires 2 screws, and there are two legs. After twisting the screws into each leg, you can then prop the TV up and begin using it.

What Size Screws Do I Need?

Depending on the model of your TV, you will need different screw sizes for your Toshiba C350 base stand. You can’t use just any old screw; each TV model requires a different set of screws, washers, and even spacers. 

Take a look at this table for links to the screws you’ll need, depending on your Toshiba TV model:

There are kits that include the screws you’ll need to mount your TV. Make sure you get the correct screws for your specific TV model. You can check which model of  TV easily by examining your panel; otherwise, note that the TV model is preceded by the size of the screen: a 43-inch is 43C350KU, for example. 

If you don’t have an extra on hand or don’t want to wait for your order to come in, you may be tempted to use a different screw or two in the meantime. We recommend against this. 

What Happens If I Use The Wrong Size Screw?

If you attempt to use the wrong size screws, your TV stand will eventually fall apart. Because it is possible to force a screw in place, you may feel tempted to use a different screw. Temporarily, this may be okay, but just know you can damage the hole to such a degree that the right fitted screw will not work. 

If the screws you are using are too large, you may not even be able to screw them in and can damage the TV stand by forcing it in. If the screws you have on hand are too small, they will be too loose to secure your stand and you would have to resort to stuffing the area.

It is always best to use the correct screws. You do not want to risk your stand falling apart and damaging your TV panel. It is best you use the screws already provided with your TV stand and source replacement screws from highly reputable sites.

Where to Source Parts for Toshiba TV

On Toshiba’s website, you can select your model and find its user guide. Most of the user guides will not have the exact screws you need, but it may have setup instructions. It should have the exact VESA size and screw type in the guide if you will be wall mounting your TV.

You can also contact Toshiba and ask what you may need over the phone – they should be very familiar with their units and can possibly even send you replacement screws for free.

Here are websites you can find parts on:

On the replacementscrews.com website, you can enter in your model number to find the exact screw you need for your Toshiba model.

If you are interested in wall mounting your TV, we’ve got you covered in the next section. 

Wall Mounting Your Toshiba TV

Wall mounting your Toshiba TV is a great idea. Actually, these TVs can run quite small, meaning that they’d be perfect for a bathroom, bedroom, or workout room. The wall mount for the Toshiba C350 is the VESA 200 x 300.

The screws for the wall mount are the M6 screw. The wallmount measures 200 cm by 300 cm. You should measure the space you are planning to use with a tape measure and guarantee the holes you place are in the proper alignment.

Conclusion

If you still can’t find the proper screws, you should try reaching out to Toshiba support. They will likely be able to guide you in the right direction, if not ship you the parts you need directly!
