Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
YES absolutely, these TV's well, any, TV, and especially Big screen units over 30" or so.must be transported very very very, delicately, that's why they come in those polystyrene lined boxes, as it indeed doesn't take much to completely ruin a set by incorrectly packing and transporting.
Just flexing. or twisting the internal boards or chassis can and will cause all sorts of problems.
However what you describe, doesn't really characterise, "the picture has waves in it" (sic) any type of fault like that. but it would still pay to give the unit the "Once Over' checking all clips and connections. Then go through the setup procedures all again and see how you go.
To assist you i have given you a link below so you can download your service and repair manual. simply follow through the troubleshooting steps and i am sure you will be able to identify the problem.

Before jumping to conclusions about something moving inside TV you need to test the TV using different devices and cables. Something moving inside the TV usually cause TV not starting. According to your description, at most you may have a broken solder joint in terminal board (the one with connectors),
About people asking you driving speed and agreeing immediately with transport damage, remember that Fixya is open to answers to almost everybody.
From your description it looks like you tested only using a DVD player. The DVD player may be using PAL/NTSC settings that are different from TV (this gives wavy lines). Have a look at player settings. If player does not play both PAL/NTSC, check that TV and player have same settings. This is written in manuals or at the back of the devices.
If the player you use is HD, then the signal may not be supported by the TV, try at lower definition.
Test using different devices and cables. Test also using the TV internal tuner. If the TV has sound using internal tuner, then sound is OK and the problem is the audio cable to DVD or the connectors at the back of TV.
