Hi There,

You are looking for Metric M4 sized screws. The VESA spec also states for them to be 6mm long, so bear this in mind when searching for screws.

Most sets usually conform to the VESA standard when it comes to wall mounting, I've searched for details on your set but they are relatively scarce.
