Yes, it should be transported in upright position.
When we moved, our moving company arranged a crating company to crate our Spheros unit. They built a crate around the TV and secured it in an upright position along with the rotating stand. They then put a tilt sensor (you get the serial number of the tilt sensor) to make sure that the moving people don't tilt the crate. They also un-crate it at your destination. The only problem is that the TV is already quite heavy to begin with (~180 lbs), and with the crate, it becomes almost impossible for the movers move it in perfect upright position....though our movers really tried hard.

The right inner arrow on my remote does not work; I can rotate my tv to the left, but not to the right. I can adjust the brightness, contract, etc., down, but can not adjust up. Is there a way to op

someone spilled somehing on the remote ...
remove the battry cover and batteries.
remove the two screws in the battery compartment and pry the top away from the bottom so as to open the remote.lift the rubber button pad away from the parts board and rinse in water.
DO NOT SCRUB the small black buttons on the back of the pad... or the parts board... GENTLY rinse and wipe away any sticky goo though.

let dry completely ... paper towels work better than terry cloth.. if you want to pat it dry.
reassemble and it should be as good as new.

place the remote in a ziplock bag when the kids come to play...

My Loewe Spheros plasma worked fine prior to a move to a new house. Upon powering it up about 2 mos. later.....the green light will come on and the usual "click" is heard, but no sound or image...

Can you confirm that you get no sound and picture? Apparently, these units, along with Panasonic & Hitachi units which are similar in design and use the ALiS panel from Hitachi/Fujitsu have a weakness in power supply. If yours has this problem, you should at least get sound.
My Spheros started acting up (no picture) after a move as well. If yours has the same problem as mine, you could opt to replace the power supply by a Loewe rep and pay $1500. I just use a hair dryer to get the picture going. Let me know if you need the details.
Good luck.

On switching on the set - sound ok but no picture

Do you still have this problem? If so, let me know. It's mostly likely the power supply...actually one tiny $0.50 capacitor. I actually expected better from Loewe.

Cool down period for plasma TV for transport.

I believe 20 minutest just enough. But when you bring it back from cold outside to your new home it have to stay/warm 2-3 hours before you plug it in.

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".
