Re: Moving of a TV

I would not, because you have fluid on the crt's and it could leak on the boards causing a short. But it's a chance you can take.

The best way to transport the TV is standing up with the front secured to a 'side' of vechile. If you don't have that choice lay the TV down on it's face. With both make sure you have plenty of moving blankets.The side would be my last resort because of stability. DO NOT LAY ON BACK!!!!

Good Move, big IRISH.

Can lay the rear projection TV on its side when moving?

I would not lay it on it's side unless there is no other option. Then I would be very careful. TVs should be transported right side up.

I have an Hitachi 43FDX15B. The tv worked perfect

sounds like the convergence is out of whack. you will need to call a local repair shop and see if they can realign the color guns inside the unit. this is actually a really common problem with moving a rear projection screen.

Out of alignment

If it is a convergence problem it would probably run around 250
unless somebody was trying to rip you off
I would get it and install the convergence kit

Hazy yellow spot in the left lower corner of the screen

It could be a cob web inside the tv or something laying on one of the guns, like a dead bug. If it's a cob web, you should be able to move the tv a little side to side and see it change from the moving air current. I would remove the back and vacuum off the lenses of the guns and look for cob webs. It's safe to touch and clean the lenses, just don't touch any electronics.If this doesn't fix it, it's probably fluid starting to cloud up in the guns or IC chip problems.

Moving TV

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.
