While the three plugs were disconnected to move....while the movers were transporting top section of tv...the smallest of the plugs hung up on the porch and pulled the connector/harness piece off...2 pink wires and blue wire...where can i find another piece to replace this....or more importantly.....what does this wiring control?...the tv seems to work without it....i stripped down the three wires and jammed them into the harness without being able to crimp...electrical tape on that to make the connection...i think....not sure what is operated from these wires though...will i damage the tv by using it....the only thing i see that doesn't work correctly is the perfect focus function....it gets to about 40% complete...and then resets and starts over....
any help would be appreciated...haven't been able to find a service manual...

If you can isolate the damaged section of the wire harness, it can be repaired without removing the entire harness. At the damaged section, pull a single wire up away from the bundle and cut out the damaged section. Strip about a ¼ inch of the insulation from both cut ends to expose the copper wire. Get a spool of wire that is the same gage (or larger) and cut about four inches of that and strip the insulation from both ends. Use crimp type wire connectors and attach the new section of wire to the previously cut wire of the harness. Fold the repaired wire out of the way and pull another damaged wire from the harness and repeat the process described here. Continue until all of the damaged wires have been spliced. Fold the repaired splices and wrap several turns of electrical tape to tidy the appearance of the work. Do not do this work until you have disconnected the battery cables and do only one wire at a time to avoid getting a crossed circuit. Good luck.
The mount system is important to stabilize the tub during transport, if your careful you can move this without them. To prevent damage, you can remove the top, pack the unit with blankets to prevent banging around, and damage to control panel inside. Just be careful and this can be done without damage to the unit.

Remove the four exhaust manifold to three way catalytic converter (TWC) nuts.
Raise and support the vehicle; refer to Section 100-02 .
Disconnect the downstream HO2S and position it aside.
Remove the two TWC bracket bolts.

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.
