Disassemble Toshiba 65H80 tv

No, cabinet is glued and screwed---entire front screen can be removed and the mirror inside also(be very careful with that) as they are the two things that get damaged most when transporting a set.

Moving a long ways or just across town?

My K series JVC TV suddenly went into "On Timer" mode after years of no problems. TV turns off before I get a chance to select "Menu". Don't even know how I turned this feature...

As your tV doesn't give you a chance to enter into its Menu option, you can't check with its reset function. The only way to reset it is, to unplug it from the wall power socket, and left it idle for at least three hours. Do this and check. if it also doesn't help, you ave to contact the authorised service center for JVC at your town. The main system control and its memeory section will have the trouble. This is ofcourse not a user repairable one. OK.

Need to transport a Toshiba 43vs9ua 43" TV....can it be laid down on its screen or back for 3 hours??? And if so what is the standing period prior to turning it on?

If this is a tube type TV it should be transported the same way as a Plasma type. Upright. The reason for this is because if the screen is not supported in the centre and evenly across the whole area of the surface, it may break being made of glass and heavy. I normally transport them face toward the side of the van and up against 2" of foam rubber with tie down straps to keep it steady.
There is no standing time before use however, if the climate is different to the transport, (air conditioned and cool but warm in the room it is put in), it is adviseable to let it reach the same temperature avoidind problems with condensation. This normally takes a couple of hours.
Hope that helps.

Transporting plasma home something hit the screen now the tv is not working. It is a sony 106cm plasma. Can this be fixed and be cost effective or better to buy a new one

If you damaged the plasma display, the job willbe over $1000, depending on the model.

If you damaged a different part, the repair wont be less than $200 in the best case.

I suggest to call the manufacturer and ask the cost for a warranty extension.

A warranty extension costs usually less than one single repair ($200 or less for an average plasma TV), and will cover all repairs for one year.

If you want to call the manufacturer you can use the phone number listed on the owner manual.

Philips 50P8341 Does Not

Have some one with experience on repairing tvs try this and it will determine wich board is bad and the you can go to for the part.
Have them unplug the connector from the LSB to the SSM (the plug that feeds the voltage to the convergence IC’s, toward the front of the set) If the H/V comes up replace the SSM. If the H/V don’t come up unplug the CRT’s from the H/V generator. If it comes up see which CRT is bad if not replace the LSB first and the SSB if that doesn’t work.

Problem with tv 50p8341 might have found the solution

The green line across the TV if its in the middle is usually loss of vertical deflection so that can shut the tubes down for protective purposes. Check the vertical output IC thats what is most likely causing the problem. The flyback is working if theres a green line across the middle of the screen.

I have a 50 inch big screen hdtv and i am moving i want to know can i lay my tv down flat?

Yes you can lay it down flat on its screen just make sure it is padded so the screen doesnt get scratched. I transport projection units this way all the time even DLPs however do not transport LCD or plasma units in this manner as thats not recomended.

Panasonic PT-51G44 51 transporting?

No you should only transport it standing up to ensure the optics do not get messed up. I have seen peeps do this and nothing happens. I have also seen pros do the move on the back or the sides and it tears up the TV set. Good Luck
