Can you lay a flat screen tv face down on a table to take the back off the tv


Yes, carefully with lots of protective padding, bubblewrap

duvet, blankets etc. Make sure that it has been OFF for several

hours before removing the back, the main capacitors in the

power supply can store enough energy to KILL.

Look very carefully at the caps in the power supply they are often

faulty, blown, discoloured. Replace any suspect ones with EXACTLY

the same value with the same or higher working voltages.

Be VERY careful .....dangerous area

I have a Sony Wega KP-FX432M91 Prjection TV. I am moving house and I want to know if I can lay the TV flat on it's back to move as it's too tall to stand upright in our vehicle


Hi,
Please do not lay tv on its back because of its internal design, things are mounted inside vertically and screws are holding them in place. Laying tv on back will put force on screws that might came off or get loose and you will end up with a distorted picture on tv screen.
Move tv in stand upright position, it is safe.
Hope this will help.
Thanks.

I just got it home and I had to lay the tv flat in order for it to fit into my car. The salesman said I had to wait 24hrs before I could plug it in because it was laying flat, is that true?


Good Morning

I have laid them flat, turned them back up, plugged them in without issue. I think this is just a myth but like all myths there must be some truth.

To be safe wait an hour... Then if its messed up RETURN IT... :)

Have a great weekend

I am moving and need to lay the fridge on its side, but have been told you cannot do so, is this correct?


You do not want to lay that refrigerator on its side because the refrigerant will leave the compressor and fill the system with liquid refrigerant where it should only be existing in a gaseous state, and if the refrigerator is tilted far enough over or lay-ed onto its side then the refrigerator will have to stand up-right and un-plugged for at least 24 hours before the liquid refrigerant will settle back down where it belongs, and then the refrigerator should actually function again if there was no other damage caused when moving the unit.

Where is the fuse located to check it? do i take the whole back off the tv? can i lay this tv flat or does it have to stay upright?


The fuse - if there is one - is on the power board, which is relatively easily located if you just follow the outlet wire.

The power board can be easily identified by the one or more heatsinks on it as well as the large (usually black) cylinder near one of those heatsinks.

The fuse is usually very close to where the power wires come in.

And if experience is anything your fuse will most likely be good.

You can lay the TV down, in fact you will most likely have to.

You need to take the back cover off and most often - not sure about the W3 model - you will need to take off the stand in order to do that, so the TV has to lay flat.

That's OK, LCD is not affected by space orientation, only by physical damage, so make sure you don't drop it or put it to lay on top of uneven surface.

Finally, make sure to unplug the power before you start operation.
You need the time off the outlet while disassembling the back so that the power board discharges the large capacitors.

Otherwise you may be in for a nasty shock. Even experienced technicans get it every now and then and trust me, it's not something you like to experience.

CAN I HAUL MY FRIDGE LAYING DOWN?


Yes. Lay it back side down only, after taping all shelves and loose items inside. It's not a bad idea stand it up several hours before pulgging in if possible to allow any internal oil in the sealed system to return to where it all belongs. (NOTE: often times the manufacturers will have refrigerators or freezers laying down on top of other refrigerators in their delivery trucks.)

My lg42LC2D made a loud clicking noise and just turned off. Turning it on the power light went green but no picute of sound Is it fixable at a reasonable cost.


maybe the tv has been moved or transported recently. Plasmas can't really be layed on it's back (horizontally) they should always be standing vertically.

But in a case where it has been tilted or layed on it's back, then it should be left standing vertically for atleast 24 hours (i recommend 48 hours to be sure) without plugging it in... no electricity what so ever running into it. ( lets the gases inside the tv balance) > afterwards just plug it in and hold your wallet.

plasma tv's have a tendancy of malfunctioning when it's "chemically imbalanced".

it is a myth about how the tv is positioned, if you have audio but no video then it is probably the y-main bopard or the y-scan board, if you replace the y-scan buffer then you have to replace the y-main at the same time, if the tv is in warranty call 1-800-samsung

Try putting a fan on the back of the tv to see if it is getting better. If it does then you probally have a board that is overheating. If that is the case then CAREFULLY !!! remove the back and place where you can turn on and safely access the open back NO TOUCHING STUFF !!! Mabey lay it face down on a glass table or lay it on a table with 25% hanging over the edge to see the screen. Then take a COLD blow dryer and blow it on the boards to find out which one makes it get better. If one does then it will probally be your problem board. Make extremely sure that is the one before removing it by blowing from all angles on the boards around it without air hitting the suposed problem board. Then try a little hot air to see if that starts the problem on that board so you can be sure. Of course check the surrounding and offending board several times to be sure before removing.

Do plasma televisions need to be recharged regularly? Picture initially comes on, then pink and white lines scroll down the screen and wipe out the picture. Sound still works. TV is only about 2 years...
