There's 2 large bolts on the sides. I removed them but still can't figure out how to separate the top from the bottom. Any other secret magic screws to loosen? I'm trying to move this monster and to move it in one piece is near impossible unless you have some NFL players handy to help.
I found the problem. Mitsubishi put 2 strips of what looks like rubber caulking inside, presumably to keep the TV from rattling or something. Peel them off from the inside and the top comes off just fine. Both pieces are still very heavy, so its at least a 2 man job moving either piece. Most of the weight seems to be the LDF more than the TV though.

To disassemble this TV follow these directions:
1). Pull front speaker grill off
2). Unplug the 2 cables connectors in front
3). Remove 4 screws on both sides of cabinet (might have plastic covers)
4). Carefully lift cabinet top until the support tabs clear the bottom cabinet
5). Carefully rotate the cabinet top and place back side on floor ( the mirror is on the top side)
6). Pack/wrap properly with blankets and transport in this manner.
I learned today on my Mitsubishi VS-60621 (chassis VZ4) there are 3 convergence ICs (3, not just one as previously suggested), all 3 are STK391-020 located underneath the large heat sink on the upper right (as viewed from back of set), above the large PCB with the 6"x10" cover in the middle. The 3 chips are hanging upside down from their heat sink, have aluminum covers over them (so well hidden, it took me hours to find them, not knowing where to look), and the whole heat sink & chip assembly comes out by removing 2 screws, the front one must be accessed by removing the large lower front plastic cover and fiber-board piece behind it. Not necessary to remove the smaller plastic cover and control box above the big one. The big plastic cover has 2 large tabs on the bottom straddling the center post that will still hold it on once the screws are removed, gently pull down on them to release it. Not necessary to remove the glass doors, but probably safer to do so. Good luck!

Wow, You are asking for a complete disasemmbly. If this is necessary, you have to remove any screws you can find that are connected to the front panel. Usually they are in the top of the set ( you'll find them after removing the mirror panel and mirror ). I wouldn't remove any tubes as the tube convergence would have to be all reset and that would require a cross hair generator. I do hope this has helped in some way, but all I can do is send you my best wishes as I certainaly don't suggest disassembly if there is any other way. Good luck
the bottom stand seperates from the top screen portion. On the side under the top potion you will see 4 black phillips head screws on each side. Remove those. Also there is a small access panel on the right side ( if your facing the tv ). There are 2 screws there, remove them , and look inside , you will see 3 plugs. Unplug them. Once you have done all this, have someone help you and lift the top portion off.
