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 fix a squeaky wooden stair step I recently installed.


Should never use construction adhesive on stairs as too dangerous. Proper way is to use wedges to remove squeaks. You could try a silicone spray like Jigaloo, or remove that step for a new one with a strip of rubber under it.

Don't you find the stairs incredibly noisy!

The top as you describe it, can be removed for cleaning and moving. There are no electronics there and allignment will not be affected.
Hope this helps.

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.

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

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.

Relocating tv


Yes, this set does come apart for moving. Remove the lower screw from each side of the TV back. On both sides, pull off the two plastic caps and remove the two exposed screw. Lift the cabinet top straight up until the guide pins clear the holes in the bottom cabinet. Be careful and don't drop anything.
