Question about Philips Televison & Video
I can't get the television out of my apartment in one piece. I would like to put it to the curb and i need to know how to take it apart safely.. Is there anything inside that would harm me.
It is actually a projection TV set. So it will have 3 projection tubes.
It can be "broke down" if there are screws around the perimeter of the set where the vertical part inthe back transitions, if there are screws all the way around even up front- although you may need to remove the plastic to see them, the top will then be able to be taken off by itself.
Otherwise, they way I usually dismantle them is to remove the screws on the face panel, and remove the plastic parts.which should tip out if they do not fall out at you as you remove them, they will be an acrylic sheet, a perforated plastic sheet and fresnel lens. The lens is quite useful. Then remove the mirror- it will be held in by a number of screws in 4 locations most of the time, and once the mirror is removed, you will see the locations of the remaining screws holding the top on, or for those that have the particle board cabinets- the places to strike with a hammer to hasten removal with fewest flying chunks of sawdust.
The projection tubes do have a silicone oil in them for cooling, if you leave the focus assemblies on them, this should not be an issue. As long as the base is handled as an assembly, there should be no problems,
If you want it out reasonably quick with minimal effort on your part- post an ad "for free" on Craigslist. Because there are still people out there looking for the parts for these sets.

It is very unusual to have wall studs this far apart - most are 16" on center. Mounting anything that is very heavy on studs so far apart will not be safe. Have you considered a table top stand?
