Question about Televison & Video
I bought a 42 inch Sanyo LCD/HDTV for my husband for Christmas and the person who loaded the TV into my Explorer laid it over on it's side...It was on it's side for the ride home...approx. 30 miles. As me and my son brought the TV into the house I noticed that the box stated "NOT" to lay the set over..but to keep upright....Should I even bother to let my husband take this one out of the box to see if it in fact caused a problem or just take it back and get it exchanged for another. I am not sure if I should worry about any long term effects of the TV being laid over. Even if it appears to look great at the time. PLEASE tell me what I should do as I spent a good chunk of money for this perfect gift to a very special man in my life :-)Sincerely,Shelli

no it doesnt hurt them. I transport projection screen Tvs all the time by laying them down flatt all the time. You may have to adjust the convergence a little when youre finished moving it, but it wont hurt it.

any hardware store will have them bring your tv manual with you it will tell you the spec on the screw to connect to the 4 pre existing nuts on the back of the tv as far as from the mount to wall it will be a standard lag bolt small enough to fit threw the hole and long enough to go threw the drywall and about an inch and a half of the studd 2" to 2 1/2" inch lag bolt will work

helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the
timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the
self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video
out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check
Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK
blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.
These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.
When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.
Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...
