I have a 55 inch Pioneer Projection big screen TV. It needs to get moved down stairs --- but it has to go around a corner. The last time it was moved in, it was really tough. I was wondering if it was "safe" to take the back apart from the front and move both pieces independently - then reassemble it down stairs. I know a lot of things can go wrong...but I think it's a better choice than turning it on it's side like my husband wants to do.

Re: taking apart and moving a 55 inch projection TV
do this as last option!
there is 30,000v inside the tv!!
you can die before you even think about it
the only way to do soo
is unplug the T.V from the wall for a week at least
(so the volt will dissolves)
you can turn the tv on its side
you will have a problem if it will get a slap or will fall
in my opinion just take on its side....but
its your decision
JUST BE CAREFUL PLEASE!!!

Ha Ha, I had the exact problem. I think mine is the same model of TV as well, I have a 64" Pioneer made in 2003. So my TV would hit the slanted ceiling above my stairs as I tried to move it down. I first took off the wheels of the TV and this helped but it was not quite enough. So since the bottom of the TV is flat with exception of the side boards and the front trim. I removed the front trim temporarily and cut off the side boards with a circular saw till even with the flat bottom. This gave me 2.5" more clearance which was enough to fit the TV downstairs. Hint if you scribe the cut line with a utility knife it will reduce chipping.
You can take the TV apart and adjust it. There should be some screws which will allow you to remove the top and then slide the plastic screen out so you can see inside. But if you don't know what you are doing, I'd suggest letting a pro do this.
This sounds like a picture mode issue. You maybe in a ZOOM mode. Try adjusting your set to FULL mode. If you are using a Sat receiver or cable box, some of these may have picture viewing mode as well, wich may need to be set in FULL or NORMAL viewing mode.
Unfortunatly no there isnt. The tv bottom contains all the circuits, color guns, speakers. From where the bottom of the screen starts to the top is all part of the entire cabinet which is molded plastic. The top part contains a mirror and the screen you see as well as possibly a remote sensor. Short of sawing it in half and tossing it away you could take it apart but this would have to be done completely to gain you the most space and could be dangerous considering the high voltage transformer that the unit uses to power the color guns.
well the short answer is : Check the sides of the set see if there is a crack in the middle where you could separate them Long answer: i would not recommend it even if it does, the screens are sensitive and could get dust inside the screen. Never taken one apart that far. i suspect most tech don't because of the problems aligning and dust ect.. trying to get it back together.
