Need to transport a Toshiba 43vs9ua 43" TV....can it be laid down on its screen or back for 3 hours??? And if so what is the standing period prior to turning it on?
If this is a tube type TV it should be transported the same way as a Plasma type. Upright. The reason for this is because if the screen is not supported in the centre and evenly across the whole area of the surface, it may break being made of glass and heavy. I normally transport them face toward the side of the van and up against 2" of foam rubber with tie down straps to keep it steady.
There is no standing time before use however, if the climate is different to the transport, (air conditioned and cool but warm in the room it is put in), it is adviseable to let it reach the same temperature avoidind problems with condensation. This normally takes a couple of hours.
Hope that helps.
