Moving my TV

I would like to move this TV to another room but it won't fit down my stairs in one piece. Is it possible to remove the top half from the bottom, move it and out it back together?

I had the same situation. You can't take it apart, but you can cut it in half!!! Take the rear panels off, disconnect the wiring (simple clips), cover the lenses (plastic wrap and elastics) and then a take a reciprocating saw! You will see the best line of attack. Moved the bottom half down first, put some Elmer's wood glue on it, then placed the top half back on. Waited for it to dry, reconnected and everything worked fine!!!

How do I take the ws-65413 cabinet apart


IF it can you will see on each side of the cabinet two plastic caps (fairly flat) If they are there they pop out and under each of the four caps a L bolt, rotate it to left and top half of set can be removed from bottom, IF NO CAPS ON BOTH SIDES, IT DOES NOT HAVE THAT FEATURE.

I have a 64 inch hdtv pioneer projection monitor sd-643hd5 and it won't fit into my basement. What can I do? Thank You In Advance, Bruce Morash


Ha Ha, I had the exact problem. I think mine is the same model of TV as well, I have a 64" Pioneer made in 2003. So my TV would hit the slanted ceiling above my stairs as I tried to move it down. I first took off the wheels of the TV and this helped but it was not quite enough. So since the bottom of the TV is flat with exception of the side boards and the front trim. I removed the front trim temporarily and cut off the side boards with a circular saw till even with the flat bottom. This gave me 2.5" more clearance which was enough to fit the TV downstairs. Hint if you scribe the cut line with a utility knife it will reduce chipping.

Need to know if TV can be separted into 2 pieces


Yes it can and does come apart in 2 fairly equal sized pieces. There are some screws on the sides when removed the top half with the mirror will lift off. It may require some extra force the first time it is done but comes apart with ease after that

HITACHI 65XWX20B - How to disassemble the cabinet?


The 65XWX20B comes apart in 2 pieces - there is a top half and a bottom half.

- The bottom half houses all of the electronics, projection lenses, etc. It is very heavy and should be moved with care.

- The top half is basically just the screen.

I have moved this Television multiple times, even up and down from a 3rd floor apartment!

- First remove the screws holding the top and the bottom, the important ones are on the sides of the TV.

- This is important, I suggest 3 people do this part: Slowly lift the top away from the bottom half of the TV, but -not- very far. There is small wiring harness that that attaches the top of the TV to the bottom to a circuit board. This must be unplugged by one person while the other 2 hold the top half of the TV slightly above the bottom half. Note carefully where this plugs in so that you can reassemble easily.

- Once this is disconnected the TV is much easier to move, although still quite heavy and bulky. Do not turn the TV on its side - keep it upright while moving.

Reverse this process to put it back together.

Once you have done it once it is quite easy.

Good luck.

Cabinet removal


Unfortunatly no there isnt. The tv bottom contains all the circuits, color guns, speakers. From where the bottom of the screen starts to the top is all part of the entire cabinet which is molded plastic. The top part contains a mirror and the screen you see as well as possibly a remote sensor. Short of sawing it in half and tossing it away you could take it apart but this would have to be done completely to gain you the most space and could be dangerous considering the high voltage transformer that the unit uses to power the color guns.

Moving the TV


you should be fine as long as you don't drop it of course. you and turn and twist it any which way but id say measure the height of the tv because at some point you will have the top and bottom of the tv touching 2 different walls if im not mistaken

Cracked screen and down screen


If the double images are located at the bottom on one side, you might have cracked the mirror inside the set and it has been displaced making the picture in that area bad (especially if the rest of the picture is OK)

Disassemble Rear Projection TV


well the short answer is : Check the sides of the set see if there is a crack in the middle where you could separate them
Long answer: i would not recommend it even if it does, the screens are sensitive and could get dust inside the screen.
Never taken one apart that far. i suspect most tech don't because of the problems aligning and dust ect.. trying to get it back together.

Moving Information


Poczekaj, not a good idea to break it down, screen assembly is veery fragile when not installed into the set, best thing to do is rent a refridgerator type dolly, wrap the front of the set with blankets and then put the dolly under the side of the tv, winch up the strap and with 2 people walk it up the stairs, one pulling the dolly the other person at the other end to push upwards, slow and easy and you`ll have no problem, if hauling in a pick-up it MUST be winched down to the bed or it will fall, (been there done that :) hope this is what you needed, more questions? feel free to e-mail me back, Happy Holidays, BMW Rider
